TREO Lacquer Alice Swatches
You know I love anything blue! I have been a little spoiled with blue polishes lately. Alice by TREO Lacquer is a milky white crelly base with dark blue smaller glitter, a brighter light blue metallic glitter and larger yellow glitter. The yellow is more sparse so you may have to fish one out if you are fussier about getting some on every nail but the mix of blues by itself is pretty too.

The formula was pretty good and built well. With the exception of fishing out a few yellow glitter pieces, I had no issues. It could also have been because it settled during shipping and I used it right out of the envelope with just a light shake. There are balls in there to help mix up the heaps of glitter pieces in the bottle. It is pretty dense for a crelly but with a smooth formula and I prefer the less sparse look as white can look too much on me.
