Unfortunately due to a trademark denial, Noelie – the genius behind Smitten and now Dreamland, had to rebrand. But she still is a genius and she still is making some amazing polishes!
This is the inaugural Dreamland Collection and will be available for preorder at Dreamland Lacquer's new site Friday! More details on that at the end of the post!
This is a three piece Valentine's Day Collection entitled Great Romances, inspired by some awesome couples!!!
This is Breakfast at Lukes. This is a gorgeous Tiffany aqua-blue microglitter with gorgeous scattered holo sparkle. This took two coats for this opacity and dried to a somewhat textured finish. Required two layers of top coat for totally smooth sparkle. Noelie had some notes on the inspiration for this beauty.
For Lorelai Gilmore, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Because COFFEE. Because Chemistry. Because Luke.
I just love this polish, and I know there are many a polish fanatic out there in search of that perfect Tiffany blue. I think Noelie nailed it with this one!

Next up is my favorite of the three and I can tell you this will for sure make you swoon. This is Burned Jam in Vermont, you guessed right, for Olivia Pope and Fitzgerald Grant of Scandal! This is a lovely thermal flakie polish packed with gorgeous glowing flakies. When cold it is a very vampy blackened red, which glows from the orange to green color shifting flakies. When warm, it is a beautiful bright red with the orange flakies mimicing fire. Let's see what Noelie had to say:
Hot. Cold. Off. On. Smoldering. Sexy. Sometimes life distracts you from the dream and when that happens... your jam gets burned.
I wore this for a full day and I could not stop looking at my nails. So fun and beautiful to see this shift, I love it both cool and warm. The flakies were the perfect addition to the polish, giving it a special glow either warm or cool. It took two coats for opacity and wore super well!
Finally we have I Made A Promise, a soft gold holographic polish that has matching golden microglitter. Noelie's inspiration for this polish was great:
What Valentine's Day would be complete without a polish inspired by the world's greatest bromance? I Made A Promise is inspired by the One Ring, and the promise Samwise Gamgee to never leave his friend Frodo Baggins.
This polish was opaque in two coats and was smooth after one coat of top coat. It was super sparkly and almost leaned a tad green on my skin tone. But it was a beautiful gold sparke without feeling too holiday-esque!
So I totally think Noelie hit is out of the park for this first Dreamland Lacquer collection. The collection will be available for preorder at 2 p.m. CST Friday at the new Dreamland Lacquer site. The preorder will be open for 24 hours and the estimated turn around time is two to three weeks. The Pantone duo she released earlier this year will be available under the new Dreamland Lacquer name.
If you haven't gotten your hands on the Smitten Polish Christmas in Stars Hollow Collection, you have until Thursday to make up your mind, that collection will retire on Thursday. You can still purchase it on the Smitten Polish site. If you need a refresher of what that collection looks like, my review is here!
So share your thoughts, what do you like about this trio? Which is your favorite? What do you think of the Dreamland Lacquer name?!
