Lacquerhead Polish Baby Girl, Confetti Cake and Memory Lane Reviews & Swatches

I felt like I haven't taken swatch pictures in far too long >_< Over the weekend my son tried to take pictures of his hand with a polish bottle, I kid you not! And in doing so he messed with my settings. Luckily I got it back to where I wanted it, but it was a bit of a pain.
P.S. If you want to see his bottle shots you can see them here. Haha I think I am creating a mini monster :P

Baby Girl is described as having a pink base with purple and pink glitter of different sizes scattered throughout. All nails are 2 coats with top coat.
Baby Girl sings true to it's name and is very girly. Formula wise this polish was a little thin, after 3 coats it did build up well and I had no trouble getting out any glitter. It dried quickly and was almost completely smooth without a top coat, but I did opt to use one.
Confetti Cake has a white base and smaller sized hex glitters in a rainbow of colors. I used 3 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
On my last Lacquerhead Polish post I swatched Little Angels and fellow blogger Jacqueline, who blog at Claws Up!, commented that it reminded reminded her of Pop Tarts. As soon as I put Confetti Cake on, I thought of Pop Tarts! :P Not sure if it was just her comment that put the idea in my head or what, but it did. ;) I did polish a shake before applying because, well, I normally do and had no problem getting any of the glitters out. I assume you could layer this over a white base color and use less coats, though I liked the milky effect it gave off with 3 coats.
Memory Lane has a cocoa base color with color shifting pigment that flashes green and silver. All nails are 3 coats with no top coat. 
This polish color and my camera had a bit of a battle because the shifting color was very hard to capture. If you own MAC blue brown pigment this polish is a lot like it, with the exception that Memory Lane has a green flash unlike the pigment that gives off a blue flash. Anyways despite the color and my camera not getting along, this color is amazing in person! The base isn't just a basic brown color, but more of a deep brown and red combo. Formula was perfect and I think if I had tried to do additional coats I could have darkened it up a bit, I liked it perfectly at 3 coats though. :)
