Sayuri Beyond the shadows collection review.

Hi there everyone!!! Today I have to share with you all the new collection from Sayuri Nail Lacquer. They have just released their new collection called Beyond the Shadows, and it consists of 9 polishes. I have 4 to share with you today.
All polishes today were put over a Essie base coat and then Seche Vite as a top coat.

Love's Lustre- Is a pale pink holographic polish.The holo is quite hard to capture as it is very subtle but it is there. The colour has a slight grey look to it but that is due to the holo pigment used to make this polish. It in no way detracts from the colour. I used 3 coat to get opacity. The first coat was a little streaky but it evened itself out with the second coat.

Luminous Illusion- is a purple shimmer polish which has a blue/green shimmer. I really liked the colour combo of this polish. I am a sucker for purple blue and green so i'm a little bias! The shimmer is lovely by itself then in different lights it captures the blue /green shimmer which gives the polish a whole new look. I found the colour change was a lot more visible when I was in the shade than the sun so I took all my shots in the shade for this reason :)
I used 3 coats for this polish tho I could have gotten away with 2.

Kaleidoscopic- Is a holographic top coat. I love how the polish is really thin. I have used other holo top coats and they are way to pigmented and therefore grey out the polish below. More holo pigment does not necessary make a better polish, and I think Sayuri has got this one right. As you will see in my swatches I layered 1 coat of kaleidoscopic over luminous illusion then on the next swatch I layered over some Ulta3 cremes. The polish gives the colours a great holo effect but not so much as to dull the polish beneath.









Moonbeam Aria- Is a grey crelly polish with black,white and iridescent blue glitter in it. I love the combo and the effect the iridescent glitter has in the polish. It was super hard to capture the blue through the polish but IRL you can see it a bunch. I had to use 4 thin coats for this one as to layer up the glitter.
