Lumina Lacquer Mint Chocolate Chip Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! As promised I have the third polish from Lumina Lacquer. Make sure to check out my review of the other two here. Mint Chocolate Chip instantly stood out to me when I opened my package from Tatiana, the maker of Lumina Lacquer, and I knew that I had to do something special with this one. So in addition to swatches, you get some nail art as well! :)

Lumina Lacquer Mint Chocolate Chip

Mint Chocolate Chip is a clear-based glitter bomb like the other polishes that I reviewed. And this one has the same beauty and complexity that you see in Anything and Spring in Iceland. The colour scheme is predominantly pale mint and dark brown, and there's glitter in so many shapes and sizes - hearts, stars, flowers, squares, hexes, and circles. In addition to the pale mint and brown glitter, there's also some white, copper, blue, iridescent, and tiny holo glitter to boot. I can't even fully describe everything here!

I layered one coat over OPI My Vampire is Buff and had no problems getting enough glitter. I also found it easy to get the larger shape glitters out. Just give it a good shake before applying - no need to turn the bottle upside down or anything like that. I topped it with a coat of Gelous and a coat of Seche Vite.

Then I decided to do some freehand painting on the two middle fingers. I started with a base of My Vampire is Buff. On my ring finger I painted the details with OPI You Don't Know Jacques! and Joe Fresh Lagoon. On my middle finger I did a sponged gradient with My Vampire is Buff, Lagoon, and piCture pOlish Marine. Then the squares were painted with You Don't Know Jacques and My Vampire is Buff. Whew!

What do you think? Have you tried Lumina Lacquer? Do you think my design goes with the glitter? :)

    1. Thanks Heather! I'm glad that it turned out. I guess that's one of the benefits of having a growing stash, a good selection of colours to work with! :D

  5. I love everything about this post: the glitter bomb, the colours, the nail art, love it!
    After your last post on Lumina Lacquer I added them to my "must buy" list. I love glitter bombs and I love how theirs are packed full of a multitude of colours and sizes.
    Great swatches as always!

    1. Thank you so much Chantal, I'm glad you liked this post and Lumina Lacquer. Definitely worth it in my books! Make sure to follow on Facebook or Instagram. Stuff usually sells out and it's good to get stuff when the store is restocked. :)

    1. It's definitely worth lemming status. There's a restock on the 2nd of April, but if you can't get it then, I don't think it will be discontinued anytime soon!

  9. Wow the art you did on your middle and ring fingers are literally breathtaking! I've never seen something like that and the colors you used are great together and with that design. Great job. So creative!
