Finger Lickin' Lacquer: Family Don't End With Blood Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Good morning, dear readers, and happy Friday! I hope you have had a wonderful week, and have an even better weekend to enjoy! For today's post, I have a couple polishes from the "Family Don't End With Blood" collection by Finger Lickin' Lacquer. This collection is based on the TV show Supernatural. It's one of the few TV shows that I watch, and I'm excited to see her collection. The polishes are scented, but if scents aren't your cup of tea, you can always request them unscented. Let's check out a few swatches!

Call Me Meg
Call Me Meg is an aqua holo with a cucumber melon scent inspired by Meg, the demon with a bit of a heart. It applied easily in two coats for these photos. I love the subtle holo, and I really enjoy the scent. I didn't find the smell to be too overpowering at all, although I'm sure I looked a little odd smelling my nails! :D Call Me Meg is my favorite of the polishes I have swatched from this collection, and I recommend it to anyone that likes subtle holos.

Oh, Baby
Oh, Baby is a leather-scented black scattered holo inspired by the Impala, Dean's baby. Depending on the angle and the lighting, Oh Baby looked darker like this or a lighter like a dark grey. The maker is currently reformulating this polish due to the colour fading, so it should be good by the official release. I used two coats for these photos.

Hey Assbutt
Hey Assbutt is a tan polish with blue and white glitter inspired by Castiel, an angel of God who doesn't quite get how things work down here. Hey Assbutt is scented with a light, cottony fragrance that smells like heaven. Against my olive skin tone, Hey Assbutt leans orange, and you know I love my orange! It is definitely more of a peachy tan on paler skin like my husband (who refused to let me paint all his nails and take a photo). The formula was a little on the thick side, but it wasn't too difficult to apply. I used two coats and then added a coat of HK Girl top coat for these photos.

Fight the Fairies is an iridescent glitter topper that looks like fairy dust. Its scent is sweet cream, as in the Supernatural-verse fairies love cream. This is such a pretty polish! I love how much it pops over dark colours, and I love how it adds just a little extra sparkle to paler shades. I used one coat over the base shades shown in these photos. I did use a slightly thicker coat over Oh, Baby. The formula is a little on the thick side, but it still applied pretty easily for me.

The "Family Don't End With Blood "collection launches on May 20th. At this time, you can pre-order polishes from the collection. Please note that is is a pre-order, and polishes from this specific collection will not ship until May 20th.

  1. I literally burst out laughing when I read "Hey Assbutt". I'm not that big on the color itself, but I seriously think I need to own it! I just want to see the look on people's faces when I tell them the name of the polish!!!! :P

    1. The name is a lot of fun, lol! I was a little nervous it would be too peachy tan for my taste, so I was pleasantly surprised to see it lean orange on me. Of course I think all people should love orange! Haha!
