Melbourne Cup Carnival 2014 Collection by LYZ Cosmetics

Get ready for the races with these Melbourne Cup inspired polishes from LYZ Cosmetics! There are 5 unique polishes in this collection and it is now available from their Etsy shop.





"Lucky Lucky Lily" - a subtle medium to light pink thermal with fine silver glitter and pearl shimmer. This is such a pretty pink girly polish! For my swatch I used three thin coats plus a glossy top coat.

"Showstopper Topper" - A chunky glitter topper with blue and purple dots, blue bar glitter, and tiny pink glitters. I dabbed one coat over "Lucky Lucky Lily" for a cute and sparkly combination. I had not trouble at all with the large dot glitter and they applied beautifully.

"Maine of the Show" - A bight red jelly with a subtle thermal change. This squishy polish includes stars and squares, as well as pink glitters. This one was my favourite from the collection. It had a great formula and application. I used three coats plus a glossy top coat.

"Run Horses, Run!" - A bright golden yellow with pearl shimmer. This one had such a pretty shimmer in the sunlight. At first this one seemed a bit sheer but after three coats it had reached a nice opacity.

"I Heirby Win The Race" - A major glitter bomb including pink, blue, and silver glitter in a clear base. For my swatch I used three coats and a glossy top coat. It didn't get too thick and clumpy while applying, so I was able to get full coverage in three thin coats.
