With so many lacquer finishes it can become quite confusing understanding them all.
We have provided a guide to all the finishes we have used and/or currently use to help ease any confusion.
GLITTER-Glitter finish is a sheer or jelly finish with added glitter. The glitter added is not as dense as in microglitter finish. This finish is usually layered over more opaque lacquers. Glitters added can be of various shapes, sizes and colors.
FLAKIE-Flakie finish usually consist of a jelly base with thin, fine opal-like particles. These particles are often multi-chrome, giving off an array of colors. Flakie finishes are typically used for layering over other colors.
IRIDESCENT-Iridescent finish is a color that has shimmer particles that gives the appearance of a different color sheen on the surface. Much like the sheen on the surface of a pearl. The slight sheen of color is often so slight that it may go unnoticed.
PEARL-Pearl finish is very similar to the frost finish but it has a pearly sheen.
MATTE-Matte finishes are much like creme finish but dry completely matte, no shine at all. There are no inclusions such as shimmer, glitter, flakies, etc.
