Anchor & Heart Lacquer La Vue 2.0 is one of the PPU Turns 5! anniversary celebration polishes. This is a remake of the brand’s original offering in April 2017. It is a lavender-pink creme-jelly with blue-green duochrome shimmer and a mix of glitter of different sizes in green, aqua, turquoise, and periwinkle. I wore it in four thin coats, but two or three will cover. It does need top coat to completely smooth, but is not super-textured.
Inspiration: This month was Art-themed. The painting Les toits de Collioure by Henri Matisse.
Price: $12.50 / no cap
Anchor & Lacquer Moon Metal is the brand’s regular release for this month. It is a brilliant blue jelly with cyan/teal/purple duochrome iridescent shimmer, turquoise microflakes, and green/pink/purple multichrome iridescent flakes. I wore it in four thin coats, but two or three will cover. It had a great, fast-drying formula that needs top coat for shine.
Inspiration: Niobium coin of the moon’s surface. Niobium is a metal that takes on rainbow hues when heat-treated.
Inspiration: the colors cobalt can be in different forms
Inspiration: the metallic salts that contribute to the color of fireworks
