Review: Lacquistry Golf Shorts

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you may have noticed that have something of an affinity for indie polishes.  The more glitter you can pack into a polish while it not being solid in the bottle, the better.  That reason alone is why I will always <3 Lacquistry.  I mean, look at the photos below! That's a ridiculous amount of glitter! Anyway, let's take a closer look at Lacquistry Golf Shorts.

Golf Shorts is a polish with bright orange (not copper) glitter suspended in a clear base with super huge green and gold accent glitter.  I just love this one, cos I mean, how often do you see this kind thing?  Very rarely.  Application is never the best with polishes like this but I'd rather fight with the glitter than have not enough.  This is three coats and when I was editing the photos I noticed a few bald spots but whatever, it's so sparkly that it's hard to see in person. 






The Verdict:  MAKE MORE LIKE THIS PLEASE JENNA.  I mean, this actually looks like an abstract plaid and I didn't have to do hardly anything.  <3

  1. I have golf socks and love it. I feel like they would look great together as an accent nail or something!

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
