NERDLACQUER No Medal For Chewie

 

This is my second polish from a new franken seller on Etsy, byStringTheory. Her polish line is called NERDLACQUER and she makes trios of polishes inspired by her love of sci-fi. A little about her polishes in her own words.

All polishes come in a standard full-sized 15ml / .5oz bottle, not a mini. All are blended from existing colors plus lacquer base and loose glitters and micas, and combine anywhere from 6 to a dozen (or more!) different shades and components. The vast majority of component polishes are 3-free, but some are not. They ARE all cruelty-free, however. I don't use any lacquers from brands who test on animals.

Here we have 3 coats of NERDLACQUER No Medal For Chewie. This polish is from her A Glitter Far Far Away Trio, inspired by Star Wars. Please click on the pictures to see all of the glitter in more detail. Here is her perfect description of the color.
"No Medal for Chewie" is a deep jungle-canopy green with mossy shimmer, packed with emerald green, holo, and gold glitter, plus big hexagonal gold glitter.

Once again the application was great for a polish with this much glitter. No problems getting the big glitter on my nails. The base color is a truly beautiful dark green jelly. I would love to have it all by itself without the glitter too. Dry time was a bit slower then usual and it needs a couple of coats of top coat for a smooth finish. Overall another fantastic polish. This one will be great for Christmas!! 8 for one bottle or $21 for a trio. She'll let you pick your own polishes for a custom trio too!


Stay tuned tomorrow for a fun surprise featuring NERDLACQUER!!

NERDLACQUER All Of Time & Space

I have a couple of beautiful and unique polishes to show you this week from a new franken seller on Etsy, byStringTheory. Her polish line is called NERDLACQUER and she makes trios of polishes inspired by her love of sci-fi. A little about her polishes in her own words.
All polishes come in a standard full-sized 15ml / .5oz bottle, not a mini. All are blended from existing colors plus lacquer base and loose glitters and micas, and combine anywhere from 6 to a dozen (or more!) different shades and components. The vast majority of component polishes are 3-free, but some are not. They ARE all cruelty-free, however. I don't use any lacquers from brands who test on animals.
This is 3 coats of the drop dead gorgeous NERDLACQUER All of Time & Space. It's from her first trio inspired by Dr. Who. I love it! Please click on the pictures to see all of the glitter in more detail. Here is her perfect description of the color.
"All of Time and Space" is a sheer crystalline minty turquoise with silver shimmer, small and medium fuchsia glitter, and big silver hexagonal glitter.
Application was shockingly good for a polish with this much glitter. I had absolutely no trouble getting the big hex glitter on my nails. I used 3 thin coats, but I probably could have gotten away with just 2.  Dry time was a little longer than normal. Definitely needs 2 coats of top coat to get a smooth look. Removal is what you would expect for a glitter polish like this one. Overall, I couldn't be happier with this polish! The base color is truly lovely and the mix of glitter is stunning. $8 for one bottle or $21 for a trio. She'll let you pick your own polishes for a custom trio too!
 

Stay tuned this week for the equally amazing No Medal for Chewie!
