WARNING!! PICTURE HEAVY POST!! WARNING!! 

Hahahaha hi there :D

Today I am reviewing two polishes from Jior Couture. However, it's something more interesting cause these are mystery polishes!! Well since they are mystery lacquers, I felt that both colors  lived up to the expectations. Let's start off with the month of April.

When I first saw the bottle I was already so pleased with it. You guys know I am not a pink girl, but this caught my attention really well. April is dusty pink with holographic shimmers running through it. To add on more, there's this somewhat muted gold holographic hex and square glitters which I find really interesting.

The first coat was really sheer however the formula was smooth and easy to work with. On the second coat, it did fairly well in coverage however there were still some visible nail line which I wanted to cover up. So upon the third coat it was opaque. You can see the live application in my swatch video at the end of the post!!

My swatch of April is three coats with Glisten & Glow "HK Girl Top Coat". The glitters were easily loaded on the brush and what I like most is that it is not all full of glitters so it won't be too overwhelming.

I think that the macro shots shows enough justice on how much I adore this polish. Honestly, it is really flattering. I mean come'on, I even have short nails and it looks great!!!

Moving on to June! 

It is a grape purple holographic polish that is super strong but at the same time pretty!! The shift in colors are crazy even in the bottle alone.

It was super opaque considering it as the first coat. However the only drawback I had was the formula. It was rather thick and so when you watch my swatch video you can see the polish was staying on my brush although I sweept it off the nail. On the other hand it does give opacity, so you gotta give and take! Swatches are two coats with Glisten & Glow "HK Girl Top Coat".

June dries to a semi-matte finish and also dries pretty quickly. I do recommend a good glossy top coat to show off the holographic-ness of the polish. You can easily see the intensity going on with the holos in my macro shots.

Last but not least, here is what April and June looks like in action! Live swatches are sometimes a lot better in showing the application, do you agree? Lemme know if you like these swatch videos!!
