Today, I have for you three colors by indie polish maker, Candy Lacquer.
Argyle - white, turquoise, and black diamond glitter, as well as white and black bar glitter in a clear base. As soon as I saw a bottle pick of Argyle on another blog, I fell instantly in love and I knew I had to get it. As soon as Candy Lacquer's Etsy store was reopened, Argyle was the first one I put in my cart. Once I got it home, I love it even more... in the bottle. Unfortunately, it was a pain to put on my nail. I ended up pouring some out into a palette and then putting individual pieces of glitter on my nails with an orange stick. Even with this method, it was still bumpy and I had bubbles after I put on a topcoat. That said, I think it is still super awesome (can you look at my blog redesign and tell me what inspired it? LOL), and I still want to play around with it to see if I can find a better way of application.
Starlight - multi-sizes and shapes (there are stars!) of silver holographic glitter in a clear base. I threw this one in my cart on a whim and I'm so happy I did. Of the 3 Candy Lacquers I picked up, Starlight has the best application. The glitters came out of the bottle easily, even the stars!
White Wedding - multi-shaped and sized matte white glitter in a clear base. Okay, so let's be honest... I got this one for the name. I also thought that it looked super cool in the bottle, but really... I got it for the name. LOL. So when I got it home, I was pleasantly surprised. I love this one over the bright red of Sooki, and think it would look equally as pretty over just about every color. Application on this one was a little harder than Starlight, but nowhere near as difficult as Argyle. I did have to go digging for the hearts, but that's to be expected.
All in all, I really like the 3 polishes I picked up from Candy Lacquer. Shipping was super quick and the owner, Sandra, was extremely pleasant. I kind of wish that application on a few of them was a little easier, but honestly, with big glitters, you kind of know going in to it that you may have issues with application.
Candy Lacquers are $8 a bottle are available through their Etsy store (though it is currently closed). For more information on restocks, please check their Facebook page.
