Black Cat Lacquer Welcome to Portlandia Collection Swatches/Review

Today I have a gorgeous collection from Black Cat Lacquer inspired by the television show Portlandia. I've never actually seen the show, but the polishes that it spawned are totally awesome! Have a look!

The Dream of the '90's is Alive is a seriously awesome mix of multiple colors and types of glitter in a grayish jelly base. I have two coats here layered over NOPI Am I Making Myself Claire? You could wear this on it's own for more of a jelly look.

Put a Bird On It is a light blue jelly base with pastel glitters. This is two coats layered over NOPI Stand By Your Manny. Again, this could be worn alone for a jelly look, but I prefer them like this.

I was going to layer We Can Pickle That! like I did with the first two polishes, but I decided I'd wear this one alone so you could see the different. This is three normal coats of the minty jelly glitter.

Sanitation Twins is the most AWESOME mix of glitter. I absolutely love the combination I did; this is two coats layered over NOPI A Like-Haley Story.

Last but not least, Women & Women First is a jelly pink shimmer with black and white glitter. This is two coats over NOPI I Do De-Claire.

  1. Your swatches are always the best! thanks :)

  2. I LOVE Portlandia, so this is really cool to me. Put a Bird on It is flawless. I'm super picky about glitters, but I really like this one.

  3. Wow! I love the creamy base polishes! I've only ever seen her glitters but these are beautiful!

  4. I love Portlandia too. This is so fun and the polishes are gorgeous!

  5. Love the last one, the pink with the black glitter is so cute and not something I'd have put together. Def checking these out!
