Rogue Lacquer Summer 2021 Collection

Hello everyone! Today I have swatches of the Rogue Lacquer Summer 2021 Collection*. I first learned about Rogue through PPU as an indie brand that creates really beautiful and unique polishes. This Summer collection of black-flecked neons is no exception, and they are all super fun! This collection launches Friday July 30th at 6 PM PST. Don’t forget to check out my swatch video of all the shades at the end of this post!

About Rogue Lacquer

Started in 2018, Rogue Lacquer is an indie nail polish and nail care brand based in Phoenix, AZ. The brand offers products that are created using high quality and locally sourced ingredients. Their formulas are 5 free, cruelty free and vegan.

My thoughts on the formula

Overall, I am very happy with their formula. Full opacity is easily achievable with two coats for this particular collection. The polish self-levelled easily and dried fairly quickly (3-5 minutes). All of the black flakes also laid very flat, so while noticeable, the texture was minimal. For those who love a glossy finish, you will want to use a smoothing top coat in conjunction with your regular top coat, or two layers of your favourite top coat. I have been wearing these shades for five days now and have minimal wear on the tips, no chips.

One week update: Minor wear continues, no chips.

Rogue Lacquer Summer 2021 Collection

This collection contains five shades of neons ranging from pinks to blues and greens. All shades are a creme formula filled with black flakes and are $10.50 USD.

Hot Girl Summer

Hot Girl Summer is a bright coral-orange creme with black flakes. This shade was the least opaque of the bunch, but it still built up to full opacity with two coats. Here I used two coats, one coat of a smoothing top coat and another of a glossy top coat to knock out any texture. The last two pictures show this shade matte.

As If

As If is a bright fuchsia pink creme with black flakes. This shade easily built up to full opacity with two coats. Here I used two coats, one coat of a smoothing top coat and another of a glossy top coat to knock out any texture. The last two pictures show this shade matte.

Physical

Physical is a bright blue creme with black flakes. This shade is arguably the least neon, which isn’t unusual since all ‘neon’ blues never really seem all that neon. Here I used two coats, one coat of a smoothing top coat and another of a glossy top coat to knock out any texture. The last two pictures show this shade matte.

Dancing Free

Dancing Free is a neon green creme with black flakes. Both of the greens in this collection are definitely the most neon. This shade may be my favourite from the whole collection. Here I used two coats, one coat of a smoothing top coat and another of a glossy top coat to knock out any texture. The last two pictures show this shade matte.

Neon Lights

Neon Lights is a neon tennis ball yellow/green creme with black flakes. This shade is definitely the most ‘highlighter neon’ of the bunch. Here I used two coats, one coat of a smoothing top coat and another of a glossy top coat to knock out any texture. The last two pictures show this shade matte.

Thoughts on the Summer 2021 Collection

Overall, I think this is such a fun release and is perfectly timed for Summer. I like that all the shades have this unifying theme of black flakes but offer such a variety of neon shades. I was very happy with the formula, and so far the wear time is great! It’s a winner for me!
