Review: Lacquistry Lake Placid on Acid

Man, I don't think I've ever actually reviewed a full collection of polishes I've received in a haul before, this must mean I got quite the good haul! I'm still sad that Across the Universe - a polish I'd been coveting for ages - arrived on the same as my Lacquistry order.  The Deborah Lippmann is in the same vein as this latest polish, featuring green and blue glitters in a blue base but I have to say, it just isn't that impressive compared to something like Lake Placid on Acid.

First up with a glitter is finding the right base colour.  For the review today I started with a coat of one of my favourite teals, American Apparel Malibu Green.  I have to say, the AA polishes are some of my absolute favourites as the application is just so good.  One coat of this is perfect under this glitter.  Next up, two coats of the star of the show, Lake Placid on Acid.  LPOA is a polish with a collection of green and blue glitters in large and small sizes in a tinted base.  Just like all the other Lacquistry glitters (see here for some other reviews) application was straightforward.  I've also noticed that you can do two thick coats with these and it will still try in a reasonable amount of time.  



I just can't get over how much I love the giant pieces of glitter.  All the other glitters I've tried lately have just been unexciting.  I love how this looks like lily pads on a pond.






The Verdict:  I've said it before in my other reviews and this one is no different.  Lacquistry glitters are always interesting, easy to work with and so sparkly and different.  I keep getting distracted when talking to people as my nails catch my eye.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
