Review: Nerd Lacquer Warrior Ethos

It's been a few days, time for another Nerd Lacquer review! This particular polish has been a lemming of mine for a while now.  Every time a store would get more stock, I'd just miss out.  NOT THIS TIME. Finally, in my last shipment from the Nerd Lacquer Etsy store, Warrior Ethos!

Warrior Ethos is a blood red jelly packed full of all different kinds of glitter - red, black, large, small, you name it, it's in here.  Like most of the Nerd Lacquers I've tried recently, application was really good.  The pictures below are three coats but you get almost total opacity in two. Upending the bottle helps to evenly distribute the glitter but I didn't have to do much to get it to spread out.  Once applied, it gets that wonderful layered, deep look that only Nerd Lacquers seem to be able to create.  As the base is semi-sheer you can see all the layers of glitter - it's great.








The Verdict:  As always, Nerd Lacquer Warrior Ethos doesn't disappoint.  Already today I've had someone compliment my nails in the elevator and it's only lunchtime!  I love a good red polish as it is but combined with massive amounts of glitter and being opaque makes it a winner in my books.

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!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
