F.U.N Lacquer - Princess 2.0 Collection // Part 3

Hi everyone! It's time for 'Part 3' of my epic F.U.N Lacquer swatchathon! As before mentioned: Yuin Ying has made an epic re-release of her Princess Collection from last year - the new Princess 2.0 Collection. It consists of 12 holographic nail polishes inspired by 12 Disney princesses, and amazingly enough she has created new and improved formulas for us. As an extra surprise, another princess has joined the group this year! :) Drumroll please... It's Anna from Frozen YAY!!!

Pink to Blue // Aurora, Rapunzel, Anna & Cinderella



Aurora is a sweet pink holo. The formula is great and it applies really well - I feel like I say that about all of them, but it's true. 2 coats of Aurora and you're good to go. I really like how elegant this pink shade is - it's not like an in your face shocking pink, it's just cute and dainty! That's how I imagine Princess Aurora is like too :)





Rapunzel is a medium purple holo. It has such a beautiful vintage feel to it, and it's probably because of the slightly warm undertones - yet it still looks so modern! It's very original, and I like that. The formula is excellent, and the coverage super impressive - you only need 2 thin coats.




Anna is a periwinkle holo with radiant pink shimmer. This one is the new addition to the Disney Princess gang, and isn't it simply stunning? The base color itself is absolutely gorgeous, yet the addition of the intense pink sheen is what truly makes it magical. I really think it's a spot on translation of the beautiful, quirky and good-hearted Anna. What's even better is the superb formula, it's silky and smooth - it just applies like a dream, in 2 coats. This is maybe my favorite of the entire collection, even though I thought it would be Ariel or Jasmine. You know me: blue and green 4ever. My top 5 is at the bottom of the post :)





Cinderella is a sky blue holo. The shade is really clean and fresh, and I think it's one of those shades that will suit anyone and just always look beautiful :) Formula-wise it's so smooth and creamy, again just 2 coats does the job! It's innocent and gentle, just like Cinderella.





So this was the last 4 out of all 12 princesses! Overall an amazing collection. I think the standard is really set high this time, I keep forgetting these are actually handmade by the talented Yuin Ying. I don't know about you, but I can feel the love and hard work that's put into these lacquers, it was a genius idea to do a re-release, and it definitely payed off! These are amazing products, and I recommend you try them if you can.

If you ask me about my top picks of this collection, I almost want to say it's impossible to choose between all of these beauties. But I have chosen my top 5 and I'd really like to share it with you :) Anna, Snow White, Ariel, Jasmine & Pocahontas!

▲ Anna will be restocked on October 1st at funlacquer.com due to popular demand ▲

Hmm... You know what's missing in this majestic kingdom? A King and Queen! Drop by in a couple of days to see what the heck I'm on about :)

F.U.N Lacquer - Princess 2.0 Collection // Part 2

Hi everyone! It's time for 'Part 2' of my epic F.U.N Lacquer swatchathon! As before mentioned: Yuin Ying has made an epic re-release of her Princess Collection from last year - the new Princess 2.0 Collection. It consists of 12 holographic nail polishes inspired by 12 Disney princesses, and amazingly enough she has created new and improved formulas for us. As an extra surprise, another princess has joined the group this year! If you don't already know who, then you'll have to wait for the final post to see the big reveal :)

Yellow to Green(-ish) // Belle, Tiana, Ariel & Jasmin



Belle is a yellow gold holo with golden shimmer. Do you remember Belle's evening gown? You know, THAT gown. I always thought it was so elegant and yet so extravagant! There is a delicacy to this shade, and the golden sheen completes the overall romantic look of this nail polish. 2 coats worked for me, formula was easy and smooth - very velvety! Love it, especially for Fall!




Tiana is a bright green holo with golden shimmer. What a beauty! I think it's a perfect translation of the notable and very pretty green tones that shows throughout the movie. The gold shimmer takes the lacquer to the next level and makes it even more amazing! I used only 2 coats - the formula was superb, and that's all :)




Ariel is a sea green holo with color-changing shimmer. The shift alters between yellow-orange-red-pink depending on which angle you look at it from, according to a light source. It mainly shows a red flash, like Ariel's hair, and it perfectly contrasts the green base color - the color of her beautiful mermaid's tail. This one was an instant favorite for me, I loved it in the bottle, and even more on my nails. 2 coats is all you need for this beauty!


Of course it even made me sing these lines from 'Part of your world':

Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? 
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete? 

As far as I know, these words are quite famous in the NPA universe... ;)





Jasmine is a medium-blue teal holo. I must admit now that this was the shade I was most excited for when I first glanced at all 12 bottles. It's so fashionable, the color is super stylish and modern - it just looks stunning. Thinking of Jasmine's outfit, I'd expect a more turquoise base color, but I think this one's perfect - it captured and interpreted the evolved personality of Jasmine. It's stronger, smarter and more confident :)




So this was 4 more out of 12 princesses! The remaining 4 will fall under the category pink to blue. Excited to see the new princess? Hang around here the day after tomorrow for the reveal :)

F.U.N Lacquer - Princess 2.0 Collection // Part 1

Hi everyone! Do you know what time it is? It's time for another F.U.N Lacquer swatchathon! Yuin Ying has made an epic re-release of her Princess Collection from last year - the new Princess 2.0 Collection. It consists of 12 holographic nail polishes inspired by 12 Disney princesses, and amazingly enough she has created new and improved formulas for us. As an extra surprise, another princess has joined the group this year! If you don't already know who, then you'll have to wait for the final post to see the big reveal hehe :)

Neutral to Brown // Snow White, Mulan, Pocahontas & Merida



Snow White is an ultra pale off-white/grey holo. Formula-wise it's smooth and creamy, and it applies really well - just 2-3 coats does the job. The color is gorgeous, and it really makes me think of glistening snow. In the shade it looks like a classic beautiful pale grey, but when it gets true love's kiss from the sun, it comes to life and shines brighter than ever :) The holo is not so strong with this one, it's subtle and gentle, just like Snow White.






Mulan is a light beige holo. The shade is very neutral, and I think it's one of those nudes that would suit almost every skin tone. I see the resemblance between this color and Mulan's training outfit, and I think the translation is very well made - and it turned out to be so elegant and stylish. I'm pretty sure if Chanel ever released a nude holo-infused lacquer, this would be it. On that same level, the formula is excellent, it appears really delicate and velvety - 3 coats worked for me.





Pocahontas is a brown holo with luminous gold shimmer. The formula is wonderful, it applies really well and 2 coats is all you need! That glow from within, the golden sheen, is breathtaking! The base color itself is stunning, yet the addition of that dreamy shimmer is what makes me fall in love with it over and over again! Pocahontas' dress is the source of inspiration for this one - it's translated so glamorously, I can't even. This has ended up as one of my Fall favorites!

Oh how I remember proudly dressing up as Pocahontas when I was a little girl, I think I almost owned every Disney Princess outfit :) Back then I somehow tricked my older brother into wearing it too - PLUS the beautiful black wig... and luckily my mom saved the moment forever in a picture hahaha!





Merida is a reddish brown holo, it's auburn like Merida's hair! The shade is a bit more brown than what I had imagined, but I like it! I've never seen a holo in this color - it's definitely unique in my stash! Anyway, it's perfect for Fall don't you think? For me 2 coats did the job, and the application was super smooth and easy. Try this if you're Brave enough! :P




So this was the first 4 out of 12 princesses! The next 4 will fall under the category yellow to green. Are you excited? It wont be long this time around :)
