Flower — Evening Primrose (Nail’d It Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Brand: Flower Beauty

After being quite happy with my first Flower Beauty Nail Lacquer, Berry Begonia, I went and bought another one (hey, we needed storage bins from Wal-Mart). This time I chose a shimmer finish.

Evening Primrose is, despite being seemingly named for a flower that is typically a chipper pastel yellow or pink, is an almost-vampy teal shimmer with hints of pinkish-plum shimmer. It always threatens to flash purple, but never does, and takes on an odd muddy tone. Perhaps it is named for this darker Evening Primrose, instead.

Nevertheless, I still kind of dig it. The formula was not as nice as Berry Begonia’s, though. Evening Primrose is a little thin and I needed three coats for full opacity. Bit of a meh overall.

Flower Nail’d It Nail Lacquer retails for US$4.98 / CA $5.98 and is 0.4 US fl oz / 12 mL. It is free of toluene, added formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and is made in the USA. As you’d expect from Drew Barrymore, the brand is cruelty-free.

Flower Beauty products are manufactured by Maesa Group, based in France with operations worldwide. Maesa also manufacture products for companies like Elizabeth Arden, L’Oréal, Victoria’s Secret, and Zara.

  1. I limit the amount of times I visit Walmart in a year… it’s so depressing. But, I was there last month and spied a bunch of the Flower nail polishes at the end cap. I was intrigued but wasn’t sure about 1) the packaging (that handle!) 2) quality 3) shade selection – nothing jumped out at me. Now I’m not sure if I really “need” this. I’m still wanting to try something from the brand though – the pville reviews all seem like like the lip products from the line. And the tinted moisturizer.
