Black Cat Lacquer He Loves Me Not and comparisons

This beauty is Black Cat Lacquer He Loves Me Not, released in February 2014 in an indie collaboration box (but I got it secondhand from someone’s blogsale).

It’s a neon pinky-purple with these great blue flakes. The flakes are opaque and tend to sink to the bottom of the bottle, but turning it upside down for a minute or two before use solves that.

Here you can see a bunch of the blue flakes up against the side of the bottle:

I used three coats plus top coat and didn’t have any issues with application.

I love these blue flakies!

I did a comparison with Fingerpaints Gorgeous Graffiti and Glam Polish Beauty School Dropout, similar neon purples that have blue flecks of different types.

The Fingerpaints is slightly more purple and has translucent blue glassfleck-type flecks rather than opaque flakes.

The Glam Polish is slightly pinker and dustier and has much smaller blue glassflecks as well as scattered holo.
