Re-Review: Nerd Lacquer Hyperspace Bypass

I've been in two minds about posting this particular entry, for two reasons: first, I have actually reviewed this polish before, and second, there is almost no way for anyone to buy this any more.  I decided to proceed as this has to be one of my absolute favourite polishes, and dammit, I wanted to wear it again.  I'm talking, of course, about Nerd Lacquer Hyperspace Bypass.  Amanda from Nerd Lacquer has completely disappeared and it looks as though there will only be ebay to actually buy these polishes.  I'm sorry :(

Let's marvel in this polish, since we're here.  Hyperspace Bypass is my most unique polish, and I don't use that term lightly.  I have a ton of almost identical polishes in my collection but only one neon mustard packed with silver and black hex glitter and micro holo particles.  It applies like a dream, needing three coats but giving that wonderful layered effect that only jellies can produce.  It's just so unique, I don't care it doesn't go with my skin tone, I love it so much.  It even managed to surprise me: I didn't even notice the holo glitter until I stepped outside.  Sigh.  I wish more people would franken instead of just making glitter-in-a-clear-base.  Don't get me wrong, I love that too but LOOK AT THIS.







The Verdict: My most distinct, unique polish.  It's in my top five of all time, I love it and am just sad Amanda isn't creating more.

The Polish:

  • Nerd Lacquer Hyperspace Bypass, $10, used to be from Etsy but no more :(

  1. I still love NL polishes and still love to see them. I'm sad that Amanda disappeared but I am happy and grateful that I managed to receive the few that I ordered from her before she disappeared.

    This is a crazy unique polish in every way.

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. 

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....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

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!
