B Squared Lacquer Valentine's Day Collection Review & Swatches Bling Bling, Luxury Chocolate, Diva, and Spring Sprang Sprung


I have the B Squared Valentine's Day Collection set to review for you today!  The set consists of 4 polishes: Bling Bling, Luxury Chocolate, Diva, and Spring Sprang Sprung. My order arrived quicker than expected and beautifully presented in a black and white ornate bag and heart stickers. I'm excited to show you this collection as all the polishes are quite fantastic. All swatches have 1 coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat under, and 1 coat of Kristi's Klean Kreations Fragranced Top Coat in Buttercream Cupcake, followed by 1 coat of Out The Door Top Coat. All pictures taken in normal bathroom lighting, no flash, no retouch.

Let's get started  with...
Bling Bling! Bling Bling is described as "Talk about holo! Bling Bling is a linear holo with various silver holo glitters, including medium size dots in a holographic base. Can be worn on its own (opaque in 2-3 coats) or used as a topper to add extra bling to any mani" And what you see here is 1 coat over Cult Cosmetics Hollywood Hills, a pale pink.

I wanted to see how it looked over a dark color, so I put 1 coat over Cult Cosmetics Paradise Cove, a dark blue.  Here we go...
You can really see that vibrant holo over the dark polish, but it is angelic and lovely over the pale pink as well. Love Bling Bling and you will too!

Ok moving right along we have...
Luxury Chocolate!  Described as "A milk chocolate linear holo with golden shimmer and a light dusting of gold flakies." What you see here is 2 coats.
Luxury Chocolate is a fabulous holo polish!  Kind of a taupe, but with that beautiful dusty blue blame and added gold fleck, what you get is a very unique, not so brown look.  It's my favorite holo in the brown/taupe tones that I own.

Now let's check out...
Diva!  Diva is described as "A cherry red jelly with micro holo silver and red glitters and flashes of purple flakies." This is 3 coats here.
This one is so hard to capture on camera.  It's a beautiful red jelly, with surprisingly good opacity and formula, with a rainbow of sparkles.  So much prettier in person!

Last but not least we have...
Spring Sprang Sprung! Spring Sprang Sprung is describes as "A GITD (glows green) with blue, pink, yellow, and green neon glitters in a crelly base with flashes of micro blue/purple flakies." This is 3 thin coats.
Spring Sprang Sprung applied surprisingly opaque and gave me no issues.  The glow is very strong, stronger than my other GITD polishes.  I did hold my hands under a lamp for 20 seconds, but it glows like a charm!
