From the store info:

Hi and Welcome to Lacquerhead Polish! I create custom one of kind indie polishes. You’ll see I love white based polishes and glitter top coats and jellys…well, I guess I love them all, after all I am a lacquerhead! Please read my store policies and have a look around. Convo me if you have any questions. Be sure to visit Lacquerheads facebook page for upcoming releases and announcements. Thanks so much for stopping by :)

How adorable are these bottles!?!  Alischia sends them each out with hand tied bows and custom (polish name) labels.   And I know they must be hand tied, because I untied one by mistake, and was too clumsy to get it tied nicely again :)   On top of the lovely packaging, she sent along cuticle oil along with the polishes, and it’s actually good!  I am continually paying hiked up prices on store bought cuticle oil with none working – so, what a pleasant surprise :)

Nice smooth consistency for easy application .  While there are tons of bits and pieces of glittery goodies, I did not have any difficulty smoothing out everything with a top coat.  There were no pieces that had curled or gone wonky – which is rare when you have the variety of glitter shapes.  As I am completely obsessed with all things blue (especially nail polish) so I loved that I could wear one of my favorite blue holo polishes under “Save the Bows” without it looking out of place.  Quite often I find clear glitter polishes only look great over black – “Save the Bows” seems to look great over anything ! :)

Except for the fact that I am utterly in love with this polish – there isn’t much to say :)   Nicely pigmented, so only two coats were needed, and the touch of added multi color shreds was awesome.  Again….no curling, nothing poking out.  I didn’t really need a top coat, but I am so used to using one, that I have one think layer of Seche Vite on top.

Ohhh, I wish I didn’t have any complaints, but just a little teeny weeny problems with “High Maintenance”.  Alischia chose some great glitters, but I always have problems with the polishes that contain larger glitter pieces.  So, this is probably more user error, than polish error ;)   What I always end up doing, is dragging most of the big glitters into one area (not intentionally) and they get stuck and I can’t spread them around smoothly.

What I ended up doing – was stealing one of the really flat brushes from another brand of polish (Nina brand I think – purchased at Sally’s.  Great brush!  Polish…mehhh)….cleaned the brush up, and used it in High Maintenance, and it helped to spread the glitters out without  much moving them around.  Voila!
