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.

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!
