Review: Black Cat Lacquer Love Games and Revlon Strawberry Cream

Oh it makes me so happy to have the nail mail flowing again.  My bf doesn't approve, of course, but my blog must be fed!  My latest delivery was from a new Etsy seller to me, Black Cat Lacquer.  Let's take a look at the girliest polish from the three I received, Love Games. 

Love Games is a gorgeous pink glitter polish comprising light and dark pink matte glitter hexes, light pink matte glitter hearts and silver holo glitter (!!).  I love the combination, I don't have anything like it in my collection.  Matte glitter AND holo glitter?? YESSS.  Application was really good for this too.  I didn't have to fish much for the hearts - what you see here is one coat.  The base colour here is interesting too - Revlon Strawberry Cream.  It's a scented polish and despite having done this last night, topping it with glitter polish and Seche Vite and showering, I can still smell strawberries.  It's a little weird, if you ask me.  Love the colour though.   Final odd point?  Despite the Seche Vite, this came out looking matte.  No idea why.  So girly :D








The Verdict:  I accidentally matched a cardigan to these nails, I feel too girly now :O.  You'd think it would happen more often but my nails rarely match my clothes, that's not really my bag.  Love the polish though.

The Polishes:

  • Black Cat Lacquer Love Games, $10, Etsy
  • Revlon Strawberry Cream, various locations.

  1. I need heart glitterrrr >_< My friend inadvertently matches her clothes to her nail polish (that she borrows from me) all the time. She doesn't even see it before she dresses and somehow ends up spot on. It's hilarious =P

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????
