Philly Loves Lacquer: Summer Down the Shore Collection - Swatches and Review

*These products are Cruelty Free

Philly Loves Lacquer
Summer Down The Shore Collection

Today I have the new Summer collection from Philly Loves Lacquer to show you called Summer Down the Shore.

Continued after the jump...

There are 8 new shades in this coastal/beach-inspired collection:

Absecon is a light, dusty sky blue loose linear holo. Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos.

Island Beach is a warm-toned champagne loose linear holo. I used 2 coats with no top coat for the photos.

Love Those Wildwood Days is cool-toned light blue with a loose linear holo. I used 2 coats and no top coat for the photos.

Meet Me at Morey's is a clear-based glitter topper with 100 different glitters. I used 2 coats over 2 different shades with one coat of top coat.

On the Way to Cape May is a strawberry red jelly polish with silver shimmer and gold and red micro-flakes. I used 3 light coats and one coat of top coat.

Under the Boardwalk is sultry, smokey dark grey crelly/creme loaded with violet and fuchsia shimmer. Two coats and no top coat for the photos.

Watch the Tram Car, Please is a bright yellow jelly glitter polish with blue green glitters in various shapes. Three coats and one coat of top coat.

Wildwoods by the Sea is a green-leaning teal creme that reminds me of sea glass. Two coats and no top coat for the photos.

The only thing I noticed worth noting on the negative side was Absecon wasn't self-leveling. Knowing this now, I recommend 3 light coats rather than the 2 coats I used.  No issues at all with any of the others. Overall, it's a great collection!
