NerdLacquer – Argentum

Whoop!  More Nerdlacquer today.  This is one I scooped up when I picked up the last couple I showed you.  I umm’d and ahh’d about putting it on and now I wish I had put it on sooner.

W.O.W.  This is one holy smokes polish.  It is amazing.  When the light hits it, it is just spectacular.  Spectacular!  It is just jammed full of glitter, lots and lots of silver glitter.  I used three coats here, opacity built up well and the formula was surprisingly easy to work with.  The trickiest coat was probably the first one, but that one then makes the others go on smoothly.  I used my Essence Better Than Gel Nails Base Coat followed by a top coated with Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer High Gloss.  Which makes this baby shine like no-ones business.

NerdLacquer – But She’s Got It Where It Counts

OOhhhh more Nerdlacquer today. This is one of the new releases, how I ever snagged it in the restock, I have no idea. But I did and lets check out But She’s Got it Where it Counts one of the polishes from the Star Wars Collection.

This one is a lovely gray base with silver, white, dark grey and orangey-rust coloured glitter pieces.  Lots of glitter packed into this one let me tell you.  Its seriously shiny.  What you see above are three thin coats over a base of Seche Clear and a thick coat of Seche Vite to seal if off.  The gray is a lovely base colour, it is pretty much opaque within two coats but I used three to bring out a bit more glitter.  There was a fair bit stuck to the inside of the bottle, I did try leaving it upside down for a while, but it didn’t seem to make a huge difference.  Anyway, this only seems to affect the larger pieces of silver glitter and I would have liked to see more of them on the nail.

I love the gray, silver and orange combo.  Its really lovely and something I will look forward to wearing again.

NerdLacquer – Hocchhh Kssshhhhh

Hocchhh Kssshhhhh from the Star Wars Collection is probably my second favourite Nerdlacquer, its gorgeous and amazeballs.  I love its description on the website.  This polish ‘is sheer black with black hex, black square, black bar, and black micro glitter, finished off with big charcoal holo hex. The micro holo shimmer scattered throughout is The Force. Do not underestimate it. This polish might enable you to asphyxiate your enemies from across the room, but no guarantees.’

This is one SERIOUS polish, check out the pics.

I used my Essence Studio Nails Better Than Gel Nails Base Coat, a good thick coat of that over a thin coat of Nailtiques Formula 2.  Then two coats of Hocchhh Kssshhhh over one coat of Wet N Wild Creme Black.  The formula appears slightly gloopy, but it was then that I realised that there was black bar glitter in it, this makes it a bit clumpy on the brush – but thankfully not on the nail!  Glitter dispersal was great even though there was a fair bit of glitter stuck to the outside of the bottle taunting me.  Then I finished with a thick coat of Essence Studio Nails Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer High Gloss which dried to an amazing glassy finish.

My word, what a complex polish.  Small holo glitter catches the light to make it shine and pop like very few other polishes.  As I have mentioned before I am exceptionally fond of these Essence Studio Nails products, seriously impressed with them.  I know Glitter polishes can wear like iron but after three days of hard core nail wearing I didn’t even have so much as minimal tip wear.  Nothing.  Nada.  I really didn’t want to take this one off…. but I did and I was sad 😦

NerdLacquer – Entirely Unlike Tea

Hey hey!  Post number two in a week of Nerdlacquer!!!

This is Entirely Unlike Tea, a nudey glitter shine bomb of a nail polish.  To quote from the NerdLAcquer website Entirely Unlike Tea ‘is what the Polishomatic came up with when asked for a flashy-yet-wearable neutral. With an opalescent warm pinky-tan base packed with silver and iridescent glitter plus (and boasting a violet-pink opaline sheen), it’s almost, but not quite, precisely like tea from outer space’.  This one is part of the Hitchhiker’s Guide collection

On the website, the polish does look really peachy.  As we will see below, mine is much nuder in colour.  There are two sizes of silver glitter in this, along with a purple flash and some iridescent purple blue small glitter pieces.  Its quite complex.

I used Essie Millionails for my base coat and then did a second base coat with Seche Clear.  This is me doing a pre-emptive nail strike as they are in great condition at the moment and I length I adore.  I will do anything to keep my babies looking like this!!  I then applied two coats of the polish.  Like Outed by a Probot the glitter dispersion throughout the polish is excellent, there were no issues getting glitter out and onto the nail.  I top coated with a thick coat of Seche Vite as it was a wee bit on the bumpy side

Much as I am impressed with the formula, its not a colour for me.  It is too pale and we know I like big bold glitters.  I bought it because I though it was more on the peach side.  But lessons learnt here, I know to stick with the darker side of NL.

There will be more Nerdlacquers to show you throughout week, so keep popping back for more!  Information about Nerdlacquer can be found on the website including info on any restocks.

NerdLacquer – Outed by a Probot

Hello everyone, how are we doing?  Good weekend?  Hope so.  Weather is starting to warm up and thankfully its been a bit drier than usual.  Nothing worse than being cold and damp all the time.  Anyway, enough nonsense and onto some lovely recent purchases I have made from Nerdlacquer.

Yes, if you haven’t already heard, Nerdlacquer is BACK!  And every restock so far has been crazy, if you hadn’t selected and checked out quickly, there was every chance you would miss out.  I can’t believe I’ve been so fortunate to get so many.

Anyway, this is is Outed by A Probot and is from the Star Wars collection.  Its described wonderfully on the Nerdlacquer website as follows ‘a shimmering wintery opalescent silver-blue with silver, iridescent, and sky blue glitter. Glacially cool, but won’t provide physical or electronic camouflage from Imperial probe droids.’  Its a lovely ice blue with a great range of glitter packed away inside it.

I used Seche Clear as a base, over a coat of Nailtiques 2, before applying two coats of Outed by a Probot.  Formula was great, two coats provided a fantastically even coverage and excellent glitter distribution.  I was quite impressed as glitters can sometimes be hard to work with, this one was dreamy.  The colour combination of the blue with the silver glitters works well, there are also a number of shapes, circles of varying sizes and a small amount of square silver glitter.

I have a few more Nerdlacquers to show you this week, so keep popping back for more!  Information about Nerdlacquer can be found on the website including info on any restocks.
