Lac Attack Spring Fling Collection Reviews & Swatches

Good evening/morning! :P I know this post is super late. >_< Today was such a nice day I spent most of it playing outside with my little one. It's set to rain tomorrow, so we took in as much nice weather as we could today and that didn't leave much time left for swatching, so a late post was just meant to be. :) 

Bunny Poop has a clear base with various sizes of matte yellow, pink, green and blue glitters. I layered 2 coats of Bunny Poop over 2 coats of Puddle Jumping and a top coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.First, hahah at the name! I don't think real bunny poop is quite this pretty. :P Formula was a perfect consistency, I no problem getting out any glitter and it dried quickly.  The color is very light and Springy and I think it makes a great combo when paired up with Puddle Jumping! :)
Cherry Blossom Bloom contains white hexes and rectangles and two sizes of fuchsia circle glitter all in a clear base. I used 1 coat of Cherry Blossom over 2 coats of Spring Fling with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Cherry Blossom Bloom is a somewhat simple, but funky glitter mix. I of course love the circle glitter! ;) I think the large rectangles are awesome too though! :) Formula was a little on the thick side much like Bunny Poop (hehe), I think this is due to how much glitter is in it. It all suspends nicely as you can see in the bottle, even those rectangles. Despite being a little thick it still dried rather quickly and application was a breeze.
Garden Party is a mixture of pink and green metallic hexes in a clear base. Except for my ring nail, I used a gradient of Garden Party over Puddle Jumping. On my ring nail I layered 1 coat of Garden Party over Puddle Jumping. All nails have a top coat of Seche Vite.Eep this is a fun glitter mix! Like Bunny Poop it's a mixture of very Spring colors. Formula was thicker, but I think that's because it's so jammed packed with glitter! I have no doubt you could build this polish up to become completely opaque in 2-3 coats. Other than being a tad thick, formula gave me no problems and dried quickly.
Holy Chick! has a white crelly base with pale blue and yellow hexes, and small iridescent glitter. All nails are 4 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
I know 4 coats always seems like a lot, remember I use thin coats though! ;) Holy Chick! was a bit streaky at 2 coats, but evened out nicely with the third and fourth coat. Personally I think this polish would be better layered over a white base because some of the glitters got a bit lost with 4 coats. Formula was great though!
Puddle Jumping is a gray creme with blue flakes. I used 2 coats with no top coat.
It should be clear that I like this polish, as I used it for 2 other combinations in this post. ;) The shimmer is very subtle in normal lighting (and my camera didn't want to capture it :( ), but comes out to play in the sunlight. While I used 2 coats I think if I did thicker coats I could have made this opaque in just one coat. Formula was perfect; it dried quickly and shiny with no top coat.
Spring Fling has a bright, shimmery blue base with small neon glitters. All nails are 3 coats with a top coat of Seche Vite.
Love, love, love this color! The shimmer is beautiful and the added neon glitters make it even more awesome! Similar to Puddling Jumping, I think had I used thicker coats I could have gotten this polish opaque in only 2 coats, but I'll take this awesome color in a million coats! :P Formula was awesome but did dry a bit bumpy, so I would recommend a top coat.
