Review: Peek-a-boo, Splitter Splatter and Glitter Girl from Lush Lacquer

It is time that I actually review all the indie polishes I get off Etsy! I order a selection every time I get paid but then they end up sitting on my desk for a while.  I recently ordered a set of eight mini polishes from Lush Lacquer and they're so pretty I had to use them.  Let's take a look at the first three from my set.  

SO MANY PICTURES AHEAD, BRACE THYSELF

First up, Glitter Girl, a mix of black, white and pink matte glitter with lilac holo micro glitter.  I loved how this one looked in the bottle, so pink and girly.  Once I layered it over Joe Fresh Fuchsia though, I wasn't too ecstatic about the lilac glitter.  The black, white and pink were perfect but the almost iridescent micro glitter just made it a bit strange.  It could just be the colour combination though, I want to try this over a dark purple.  Don't get me wrong, it's still a really pretty polish, just harder to work with the micro glitter. I did find also that this one benefited from standing upside-down for a little while too, as you'd expect.

Next up, Peek-a-boo.  Now we're talking!   Not only is this a really pretty polish but it works normally despite being Halloween themed.  Peek-a-boo has orange, purple and black small hex glitter and micro black bar glitter (!) in a white base.  Application was really good with this one, the pictures below are three coats but you could get away with two.  The glitter distributed itself nicely without too much pushing around. I just love the bar glitter here, I have't seen anything like it before and I normally hate bar glitter.








Finally, my favourite of the bunch thus far, Splitter Splatter, a glorious mixture of while, blue and black glitter of all shapes and sizes in a clear base.  I always love blue polish so this was already up my alley but the mix of glitter is just so great and interesting to look at.  Layered over China Glaze For Audrey that I finally managed to get my hands on, look how awesome it is!  It works great as a gradient, you don't even have to do much.  The glitter even came out well without having to fish around. 






The Verdict: Love Splitter Splatter, like Peek-a-boo and Glitter Girl.  I really like the formula of all these polishes, there's just so much glitter in each bottle.  I've had a LOT of issues with some indie sellers lately with the glitter being way too sparse but it was perfect here.  I have five glitters left to review, check back soon, I'll get to them, especially if they're like these three :)

Lush Lacquer polishes can be found at their etsy store.  I bought the set of eight minis for $38.92CAD.

  1. I really love Peek-a-boo, but I have to say - the little bar glitter reminds me of whiskers! Or when I leave shaving my legs for too long and I get that funny little stubble.

    I'd still totally wear it though. It's gorgeous.

    And Splitter Splatter is beautiful! I love square glitter.

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?

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....


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 of …
