The Smoothie Bar Collection from Nine Zero Lacquer is a six polish collection of crellies with little black glitter flakies in them that make each color have a special contrasting pop. Each polish is themed after a delicious perfect for Summer smoothie, and each color is perfect to match with the smoothie ingredients they’re named for. This collection will be available on June 23 for an initial pre-order and will be $50 for the full collection or each polish will be $9 individually.
Each of the swatches shown is two thin coats of polish and one top coat of HK Girl Top Coat from Glisten & Glow unless otherwise noted. All images are shown under natural sunlight bulbs as well. To watch the live swatch click here.
“Blackberry Banana” is a gorgeous lilac purple with little black flakies throughout. This is gorgeous and reminds me of smoothie this little seasonal tropical stand makes here with blackberries, bananas, and strawberries in it that is yummy! It’s so awesome to have a polish that reminds me of this, and one so bright and beautiful too. This goes on smoothly in just two coats, and as said above is beautiful.
“Watermelon Juice” is a bright perfect neon pink with little black flakies in it once more, they all have flakies; you’re gonna read that a lot! This one is very bright and threw off my camera a bit when taking photos so I really had to adjust things and alter lighting to get the perfect shot of it true to color. I loooooove this, it’s so bright and beautiful – also it went on in one coat, I added a second to see if it altered any color depth and it did not so a pleasant shock with this one.
“Blueberry Acai” is a gorgeous bright light sky blue creme with the little black flakies throughout. This goes on smoothly in just one coat and is almost completely opaque but still needs a second coat. It’s very bright and beautiful and mixes well with the other cool colors in the collection.
Matcha & Mint
“Matcha & Mint” is a gorgeous pastel neon green with the little black flakies, once again with the flakies. This reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream except it’s very bright and in your face when you put it on. This did take two coats to be opaque, it goes on almost opaque in one coat but my nails are really stained so if you go in thick enough it will likely take just the one.
“Mango Sunrise” is a gorgeous pastel neon orange with the little black flakies throughout it. This goes on very pastel looking, but when it dries it dries much brighter with more of the neon orange pop to it and the flakies give it a kind of bright almost Halloween feel to it.
“Pineapple Punch” is a neon yellow base with little black flakies throughout. This looks slightly deceptive in the bottle, it looks almost lime green in some lighting, but when applying it you definitely see the beautiful bright almost banana yellow coming out in the color.
Overall the collection is beautiful, the bright cremes go well in Summer designs and definitely match with the fruit smoothies they are names for. The little flakies in each one make them pop as well, I love the three cool colors especially. Definitely pick these up when they release to add some pop to your Summer Collections!
