Lacquer Lust Amethyst and Sapphire swatches

Today I have swatches of two of the polishes from the Lacquer Lust Birthstone collection.

Amethyst:
Lacquer Lust Amethyst – the birthstone for February. It’s a slightly smoky blue-toned grape purple holo with a fairly strong effect, so yes I recognize the amethyst. This is 2 easy coats without a top coat. 

Sapphire:
Lacquer Lust Sapphire – the birthstone for September, my birth month. I have seen swatches of this featuring it as a sapphire blue. But my bottle is a very slate-grey blue with a slight green hue, and at least one other blogger features it like that – so I don’t know if there were two versions of it. It’s a fairly strong holo and it has beautiful blue shimmers. This is 2 easy coats without a top coat. 
Do you like them - and do you have a favorite?
My favorite is Amethyst - I had hoped Sapphire was more like a sapphire...

  6. I received the entire birthstone collection (minus Amethyst but I did get my hands on that one later) as an anniversary present. My Sapphire also looks the same as yours under direct light. It looks a lot darker in normal daylight though. On the other hand, I have a ring with a pink sapphire in it, so the polish isn't at all like THAT sapphire :D
    (oh, and as usual... great swatches!! I'm glad I already have these or my wishlist would have been growing again)

    1. I think I like Amethyst more than most from this collection.
      I'm happy to hear about your Sapphire (the polish that is LOL) - I think there are a lot of cameras out there that played a role in the non-color true swatches, but there might have been a change in it!

  7. Hard to choose but just maybe Sapphire shades it

    1. Well - fortunately I don't have to choose, but Amethyst is my favorite :)

  8. I googled to see the difference in shades, you are talking about, and it's quite a big difference. You could ask Wenche if she can ask the manufacturer if there were two versions made :)

    1. LOL - hmmm difficult to choose then :D

  10. Well, that's bizzare. Sorry but these Lacquer Lust Holos are always a bit too 'milky' for me.

    Kind regards,

    1. It is, isn't it - I too would have loved them more, if they were more vivid...

  11. Usually I would prefer Sapphire but in this case it is a little too dusky for me. Shame about the different versions! Amethyst is prettier.

    1. I don't know for sure if there are different versions - or if other photos have been incorrect!

      Slet
  12. Yeah, that happens: different batches can have different colour since they are hand made :) And I was a bit confused while reading last sentences: at my eyes, Sapphire is just AMAZING :D So sad it hasn't been what you was hoping for :*

    1. But this is a MAJOR difference...
      It might be pretty - but it's surely not the shade of a sapphire ;)

  13. I love both of them, amazing :-)

    SvarSlet
  14. They're both adorable!! I love Amethist a little more, but just a bit :)
