Sayuri Nail Lacquer Beyond the Shadows Collection - Swatch & Review

Evening ladies!

I have some brand new polishes from Sayuri Nail Lacquer to show you tonight! These are the first Sayuri shades that I've tried and I'm super impressed with them! The quality is fantastic and Anthea has created some amazing and interesting shades.



About Sayuri 
Sayuri Nail Lacquer is an independent Australian business specialising in hand mixed nail polish. Developed by Anthea Cosentino, Sayuri was launched in March 2013 from a desire to combine her design qualification with her passion for nail polish. Anthea's design aesthetic is often described as 'quirky', and her inspirations are consistently wild and whimsical. [x]

The Beyond the Shadows Collection
Sayuri's newest collection is based around the concept of how different lighting can change the look of a polish. Each shade features glitters that change when exposed to sunlight and when viewed in the shade. The collection heavily features holographic and iridescent glitter as well as some lovely shimmer effects. Beyond the Shadows includes 9 new shades from Sayuri and I have been lucky enough to swatch 5 of them.


Moonbeam Aria
A slate grey crelly with small black hex, tiny white hex and small blue/pruple iridescent hex. This simple but beautiful shade has an amazing formula and was opaque in two coats. It's fast drying but dries rough so a good coat of top coat is needed. The iridescent glitters are not that visible in my photos but they sparkle a lot in real life!

Refraction
A blue toned teal crelly with small navy hex, silver holographic dust, and heaps of tiny blue/green iridescent hex. It has a great glitter payout and a nice, self leveling formula and is opaque in three easy coats. The holographic and iridescent glitters really come to life in the sun!
3 coats with top coat

Love's Lustre
This is a dusty pastel pink scattered holo with a beautiful gold shimmer. The formula was really nice and dried to a smooth, glossy finish. Some holos tend to look a bit dull when they're not in the sunlight but the lovely soft gold shimmer flashes in an array of different lights.

Luminous Illusion
A warm toned royal purple crelly with a strong blue shimmer. The striking shimmer effect is really evident when outside in the shade. I did have to be careful when applying this one as it is a bit prone to balding/patchiness but with 3 carefully applied coats, the shade is really stunning and well worth the effort.

Rainbow Shards
A gorgeous glitter topper that is filled to the brim with every colour of iridescent flakies available! This lovely rainbow glitter shade will look pretty over any colour but I opted to swatch it over a slate grey creme. It applies really well and the flakies spread evenly and smoothly without the need of pushing/dabbing.
