Kelara Lacquer Swatches & Review

Hey look, finally a semi-early post for me! High fives all around! I have some beautiful polishes from Kelara Lacquers to share today. How cute is it that the name Kelara is a combination of the couple that runs this brand, Kellen and Tara? Pretty cute, if you ask me! ;) 
Aunt Theresa 2.0 has a smokey purple base and is packed with iridescent flakies. I used 2 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
This polish was created to honor Tara's aunt who sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer. With each full sized bottle purchased $2 goes is donated towards The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Kelara Lacquer also sells 4 other polishes, each benefiting different organizations. This polish is awesome! It's not only a unique color, it has flakies! Formula was thick, but I think that has more to do with how many flakies are packed into one bottle. :P Other than that, it dried quickly and clearly I had no problem getting out flakies.
Hoodoo Man is a deep purple jelly base with green, pink and blue small matte glitters. All nails are 3 with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Purple and matte glitter, yes please! Hoodoo Man is apart of Kelara's Sweet Home Chicago collection inspired by Chicago's the funky, electric blues style and funky and electric this polish is! Formula was problem free: it dried quickly and there was no need for fishing for glitter.
One Man Wolf Pack is described as a gunmetal grey holographic polish. I used 2 coats with no top coat.
I wish the weather here wasn't so crummy and I could show off One Man Wolf Pack in it's true glory. :( Regardless, the holo is stronger than my photos show and it's beautiful! Formula was again a home run and nice and shiny without a top coat! :)
Polka Dot Love contains bright and light pink, blue and yellow glitters in a white "crelly" base. All nails are 2 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Polka Dot Love is another polish from the Sweet Home Chicago collection and again funky and electric! I love all the circle glitter and the added yellow glitters really mix it up and pop! Formula gave me no problems and dried quickly and, clearly, I had zero problems fishing for glitter. ;)
Seaside is a bright blue base with holographic glitters. I used 2 coats with a top coat of HK Girl Top Coat.
No your monitor is not showing off this color wrong, it really is this bright! In low light the holographic glitters are somewhat subtle against the bright blue base, but do really pop and shine in bright light! Seriously, I think you could blind someone with this polish's beauty and color. ;)Formula was again perfect. :)
Spoonful has a clear base with various shapes and sizes of purple, blue, green, and holographic glitter. Except for my ring nail, I used 1 coat of Spoonful layered over 2 coats of One Man Wolf Pack. My ring nail is 2 coats of Spoonful over bare nail and all nails have a top coat of Seche Vite.
Holy cow this polish is packed with a little bit of everything! Make sure to look at the close up below, since I can't even begin to name all the various types of glitter this polish holds. :P Formula was a bit thick, I'm pretty sure due to the fact it just has so much glitter in one bottle, and it was a little work to just lightly cover it over One Man Wolf Pack. That's ok though because it looks amazing over bare nail and builds up easily in 2 coats.

Purchase Kelara Lacquers through their webstore. They currently have 6 collections in their store with many amazing colors for sale, including the ones shown. Blue Steel and Uranus look like beautiful polishes! Ok really I just wanted to say Uranus, but seriously it is an awesome looking color so check it out! ;) Find Kelara Lacquers on Facebook and Twitter.
