F.U.N Lacquer Haul & Review

Here's my haul and collection from the independent company F.U.N Lacquer and I also review the polishes too. I split the video into 2 parts so it wouldn't be too long, and there's a giveaway at the end of the second video so make sure you check out both.

I got some items from the 2013 Christmas & Princess Collections as well as the latest 2014 Love Collection which has some lovely thermal colour changing polishes. I demo the polishes so you can see what they look like on the nail included some macro footage for all the cool details in these lovely nail polishes from F.U.N Lacquer.

The videos of Part 1 and Part 2 are on YouTube or you can view them below and check out the more in-depth written review under them in this post.

The giveaway will close on April 2nd and I will announce the winner shortly after.

I heard about F.U.N Lacquer on YouTube from the Crafty Ninja and then found the account on Instagram run by the created Yuin Ying, who is a lovely lady and very attentive when it comes to questions via Instagram. The swatches on Instagram is what made me actually purchase these polishes. The Crafty Ninja's photos and the ones on the F.U.N Lacquer IG page definitely helped make my decision when it cames to nail polish purchases. I always like to see swatches, so I can get a better idea of what the polish looks like and their IG page definitely shows a lot of people's good swatches and videos.

I have bought from F.U.N Lacquer 3 times so far and will do so again because the colours are so unique, especially when it comes to the thermal polishes. The Parcels are packages with love and care and I have never received a damaged or spilled bottle. The sweet bows are a nice touch too. The shipping time is quick and some of the packages have even been shipped the same day I ordered them, so that's the great thing about a small personal indie company.

The Christmas glitter polishes are beautiful colours and have plenty of glitter in the clear base, which is great. I hate when a glitter polish is too sparse and can't be worn alone easily. I do have to "fish" for some of the larger glitter pieces a bit, but that is to be expected and it is much easier to get the bigger pieces on your nail than with most other glitter polishes, so that's very satisfying. And these glitter polishes can be worn alone with just a few coats or careful dabbing of the glitter on the nail.

I love Winter Wonderland and Gold Mark especially and I bought quite a few of the princess collection greens and blues for a giveaway and they are lovely colours too.

I will say that I wish the holographic polishes had more holographic effect in them. Aurora is a very pretty colour but I would like it more with a stronger holographic effect. It is great that there are the holographic top coats so that can help in that respect.

I am a HUGE fan of glow in the dark polishes and a collection of colourful glow in the dark polishes would be amazing. The glow diamond top coat is a nice start but I'd love to see F.U.N Lacquer go further with that effect.

I would also love to see more bright coloured glitter polishes like Winter Wonderland and Gold Mark. I would be very excited about a red holographic chunky glitter polish, a pink one and a purple one! Yep, I love bright colours!

I like how there are sets for the polishes. The whole collection is a bit much to commit to but the recent addition of the duo set of diamond polishes was a great idea. Thanks Instagram I grabbed that set when it was going out of stock, and it's been replenished now. I recommend following their Instagram page for updates and swatches so you can see what's coming out and what looks good.

My previous negative criticism I have of F.U.N Lacquer store was the shipping price in the situation of buying just one polish. With several polishes I am fine with the shipping cost and it's very fair, however if I just want to buy one or two polishes I am discouraged by the shipping being a large percentage of the price of the polishes. And I voiced this concern to the Yuin Ying, the owner, when she asked for feedback and after that she reduced the shipping charge and the only thing that discouraged me from ordering a couple of polishes was removed!

I have nothing but great things to say about the customer service through Instagram and email. Any little question I have asked has been answered in a timely fashion and curiously, plus if I had any special requirements to do with packaging items like separate containers, gift wrapping or combining shipping it has been attended to quickly and thoroughly.

There are new formulas being created from the old 3-Free formula to a new 5-Free formula so you get less nasty chemicals and even improvements to thin out the formula have occurred recently. You will be able to find the polishes listed clearly with "old formula" and new formula when the change has been finished.

I find the prices of each polish quite fair and I love that they offer the option of mini polishes and the low prices mean that I can try out more different polishes and I must say that this definitely makes me order more at the F.U.N lacquer online store.

So basically the bright colours, beautiful glitter polishes, interesting effects and fair prices are what makes me love F.U.N lacquer and I'd love to see strong glow in the dark polishes and stronger holographic polishes and I will be purchasing more items in the future.
