Lumina Lacquer Grape Granite was sent for review. NARS Purple Rain was purchased by me. All opinions are my own honest thoughts.
When I first saw Lumina Lacquer Grape Granita in the bottle, I knew it would become an instant favorite of mine. Purple, pink and white glitters, with pale pink, purple, red and many other color hearts, stars and flowers, all in a clear base, Grape Granita seems like it was made for me! I love shaped glitter, if you can't tell already, and purple is my favorite color, so WIN! Like Lumina Lacquer Deep Inside of You, the shaped glitters are very plentiful and come out of the bottle very willingly. As you can see in the shot below, I got two flowers and a star all on one nail, and that was the rule for this polish, not the exception!
I dabbed two coats of Grape Granita over NARS Purple Rain. When dabbed on, this polish was super easy to apply. The glitter is very plentiful and the base is thick enough to suspend it all, but not so thick that it's hard to work with. The larger pieces seemed to lay pretty flat too. I used one coat of Poshe, but you may want a coat of Gelous to smooth it out perfectly. I can't wait to show you the next two Lumina Lacquers I ordered too!!
Lumina Lacquer Grape Granita is sold out on Lumina Lacquer's Big Cartel store right now, but check out the Lumina Lacquer Facebook page to hear the latest restock news!
