The Lost Coast Collection

Hey y’all! Today I have the honor of sharing my swatches of the upcoming Lost Coast Collection releasing September 17th at 2 p.. PST from Baroness X! These polishes will retail from $10-$13 for full size or the entire collection for $50. The first 50 customers who buy the entire full size collection will also receive some really nice extras I will review at the end. This collection was sent to me for review and I will jump right into the swatches.

First up is my pick of the collection, Kalidotide! Kalidotide is a pearly silver sheer polish with green to pink shifting iridescent glitters. It is intended to be a topper but I was able to sponge it onto my ring nail into almost full opacity. I do love the dainty, sheer, ethereal effect and this is probably my favorite way to wear this polish. Kalidotide is intended to be applied via sponge and Demi is including a sponge with each order. I also did one quick swatch over Zoya’s Willa and you can see the mother of pearl effect it had on my nails. It was pretty brushstrokey though and ultimately I would probably sponge it on next time.

Next up is Glass Beach, a silver linear holographic jelly base filled with matte white, metallic green, blue, and gold glitters. At one coat on it’s own Glass Beach was fairly sheer so I used the sponge method to full opacity on my ring nail. Then I used Glass Beach as a topper over Zoya’s Willa. This polish is beautifully dense as a topper and is incredibly sparkly in direct sunlight!

Next up is my second favorite of the collection, Gleam! Gleam is a soft lavender periwinkle shade with scattered holographic glitter and golden shimmer. This polish is beautifully opaque in just 2 coats and has the perfect wide polish brush!

Next up is Penumbra, a gorgeous denim toned blue polish with an incredibly strong linear holo effect as well as some silver shimmer. Penumbra is perfectly opaque in 2 coats and has a flawless formula.

Lastly I have one of the stars of the show, Sequoia Gigantea. Sequoia Gigantea is a brown jelly base full of red to green shifting shimmer (unicorn pee!) as well as blue to green shifting flakes. This polish is insanely gorgeous and is well on it’s way to being fully opaque at 3 coats. On my other nails I did one coat of Sequoia Gigantea over Zoya’s Willa and got much the same squishy shimmery effect but with quicker opacity. This polish can for sure be used as a topper over any polish you can imagine! The shift really comes out at extreme angles.

Lastly I’ll show you the extras available only to the first 50 customers of the full size collection!

Hot Buttered Rum Hydrating Matte Lotion

Hot Buttered Rum

First up is a hydrating matte lotion in the scent “Hot Buttered Rum.” The scent is a very sweet, kind of salty, like caramel buttered beer type scent. A little bit of this lotion goes a long way and it absorbs really well. It isn’t sticky at all, which I tend to be picky about when I’m buying a lotion. I seriously couldn’t be more pleased with this!

Excuse these ‘toots.

Over all I enjoyed this foot soak so much! It has the same delicious scent as the lotion and you get a ton of product. At first I wanted to test this soak on my hands (because I do not have cute toes!) but I decided to just go for it. I set up a DIY salon in my front yard and had so much fun testing this, I definitely recommend it. This soak wasn’t over fizzy but it did leave my feet feeling amazing.
