Review: FEVERLacquer Dirty Dancing in the Moonlight

I blog a lot.  Like, a LOT.  It happens that I actually do my nails twice a night: once, something experimental, like fancy nails or giraffes and then again with something a little more work-friendly.  I like to try indie polishes for the most part, as they tend to be interesting to look at and give me something different.  Last night, however, there were just....issues.  Let's take a look at Fever Lacquer Dirty Dancing in the Moonlight.

I was really interested in this polish cos look at it, it's a flakie for crying out loud!  It also seemed to avoid the whole red-orange-green spectrum too which I was excited about, I have those covered.  I have to say though, my first impression of this polish was a bit off: it came wrapped in two diapers.  I want nothing to do with children so this put me off right from the start.  It also ate the label, to the point where I can't really read it.  Then, when I decided to try it, it was just really sparse and a bit thick.  This is two coats and the coverage isn't great.  Also, even with a coat of Seche Vite and drying drops, I still had sheet marks in the morning.  

Anyway, I'm going to stop being negative now as the flakes themselves are soo pretty.  Look at the pinks, blues and purples in there.  

The Verdict:  My application isn't good here, sorry guys.  The polish is interesting although I might need to work on my application more to get more flakes.


  1. It reminds me of China Glaze Luxe and Lush from the Hunger Games collection, only this is way more sparse than it. If you like this one, you should give Luxe and Lush a try. :>

  2. It was honestly wrapped in diapers? I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    1. It honestly was. This was from a proper Etsy store and everything. It tooooottally put me off *shudder*

  3. In DIAPERS? What the hell?! Packaging material has GOT to be cheaper than diapers. I don't even....

    ... no.

    Anyway. The flakies, they are pretty.

  4. This is gorgeous!! :D

  5. I really like it!! Packaging is weird tho.. wow.

    Too bad it didn't apply well for you. :( I finally bought my first flakie polish!! Thanks to you!! I had never heard of it before this blog. I love it!

  6. this top coat is simply divine!!

    I was wondering whether it would be possible to remove the captcha/word verification setting. Google has made them harder lately and it's really hard work to read them, making commenting difficult. If you are concerned about the spammers, you can turn on the 'comments on approval' setting? I meant this the nicest possible way, I love commenting, and silly captcha/word verification is spoiling the joy I have with commenting. xx

  7. I really like the flakies here, but a DIAPER!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! that is not ok.

  8. I'd like to explain my diaper packing, it's to give a good padding and if there is every any breakage it soaks it up very well and keeps from leaking onto anything else in the package. I'm sorry that was a problem for you if you would email me I'll gladly send you something to make up for that, and I apologize for the old label, we eliminated those as soon as we found they were dissolving as such. I can send you a replacement one if you'd like or a new bottle of polish. Thanks for the honest review :)

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. 


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....


The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
