Aphrodite Lacquers - Romes & Jules Collection

Hi Everyone!  Sorry for no post yesterday!  It just got too late, but the Blackhawks won at the game we went to on Tuesday!!! Yay!  And they won last night too!  They are definitely on a roll and doing great this season!!!

Today I have four beauties from the Aphrodite Lacquers - Romes and Jules collection!  They are stunning, and as always, they apply perfectly, just like butter!  Rebecca, the owner, always does a fantastic job, not only with her color combinations, but by creating a formula that is just awesome. You can view the entire collection on Facebook - ROMES AND JULES Collection.   You can also see my previous post of Violent Delights - HERE!

For ordering, you can shop at Etsy - Aphrodite Lacquers. To stay up to date on info and see swatches of Aphrodite Lacquers, you can follow by Facebook and Twitter (@AphroditeLacque).

First up, we have Wherefore Art Thou.

Circle glitters will never get old for me.  They just look awesome.

For this mani, I used 2 coats of Wherefore Art Thou with Wicked Fast top coat. I mentioned above about the formula, but I love that I barely need any clean up using Aphrodite Lacquers!

One coat should be sheer enough to layer of another color for different look!  I really like how it looks at two though!  Also, as you can see in the bottle below, some of the glitters are holographic!

Close up!  CIRCLES!!

Next we have Inauspicious Stars.

This is like the pastel version of Violent Delights in my opinion!  I love both!

For this mani, I used 2 coats of Inauspicious Stars and topped with Wicked Fast. 

The tiny glitters are holographic, but hard to capture in my light box.  I love how they sparkle!  And the white glitters are so beautifully subtle in the creamy/jelly white base!  Little pops of color of light purple, light pink, and light blue, give this polish the extra little something!

Close up!

Next, Capulets!

Oh how I love the bold colors in this!!  The green, purple, blue, and fuchsia pop against the white base!  And the fuchsia circle glitters are so pretty!

For this mani, I used 2 coats of Capulets along with Wicked Fast top coat.

Such a perfect milky white base!

Close up!  Isn't this pretty how the white base layers the glitters!?

Last but not least, Misadventure.

These are all such cute names.  This polish...I don't even know what to say.  It's stunning! But so much more than that.  The tiny little glitters in the bottle shot below are holographic (again not photographing well).  More circle glitters and a deep blue base that suspends the glitters and while wearing this, it almost glowed in certain light!

For this mani, I used 3 coats of Misadventure and topped with KBShimmer Clearly On Top to make sure my finish was extra smooth!  I actually could have easily gotten away with two coats to be opaque, but I got greedy for an extra layer of glitter!!!! hehe  So gorgeous right?

I love the white squares in this.  They are in medium and small sizes, but they just look so pretty next to the perfect teal/blue circles!  And I know hex glitter isn't as exciting anymore, but the shade of blue is so pretty against the deep blue!  And by deep, I mean the color and the depth that the jelly gives!

Here is a kitchen lighting picture to try to show some of the holo!

Close up!  These layers just look so cool!  So glad I went with 3 coats!

Aren't these beautiful!? Such a great collection!!  I think all of these shown today would be fantastic layered. They are sheer enough to go over a base color, yet buildable in 2 coats!  Absolutely love these.  In case you missed above, for ordering, you can shop at Etsy - Aphrodite Lacquers.

I hope you all have a great day!

Much Love,

  1. These are must-haves! I especially love Misadventure since I'm going through a blue jelly glitter phase right now! Gorgeous swatches as always :-)

  2. These are so pretty! Misadventure and Inauspicious Stars are my favorites.
