Sheswai fall collection review and swatches
Favorite stocking stuffer ever? Why, a bottle of fancy nail lacquer, of course! And folks, it doesn’t get much fancier than Sheswai.
This California lacquer line is a long time favorite around we heart this headquarters. Besides being big 3 free, we always appreciate a bit of packaging porn. Check out those caps! They’re fashioned from sustainably harvested wood from family-owned tree farms. Plus, they cuss, which we love (see below).
And the color….oh the color. Let’s delve into the fall collection, shall we?
Shown above is Hotdamn, which was called Fuckyeah during their summer launch. You’ll definitely say one of the two when you see this in person. It also may just be the hardest polish to capture in a still. It’s the brightest fuchsia creme you’ll ever meet, and I guess its awesomeness just won’t be contained. It’s somewhere between the purple shown above and the pink shown below.
(Speaking of Awesome, that’s the name of their new top coat. And it is. A perfect, thin formula that dries to a shiny, glassy finish.)
Winesnob is a blackened berry creme that makes me want a big glass of Cabernet followed by a piece of dark chocolate.
Sheswai describes Rootsy to a T on their website; a rich roasted caramel pumpkin color of the earth. I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve seen a shade like this before. You’ll either love it or hate it.
At $16 per bottle, these are a splurge. But such a worthy one; the formula both applies and wears fabulously. When one shows up, they never fail to get a “gasp” from me. As will anyone who gets one in their stocking.
