I need to step away from Etsy. Thank goodness for shops temporarily closing because my indie polish hole I dug myself would be much much deeper if they weren’t. Even with shops closing there’s always more shops opening *sigh* and I have very little restraint…especially with the ease of pay pal.
My most recent Etsy purchase is from a fairly new shop, Lush Lacquer. I purchased two colors from them, Purple Passion and Cheetahlicious…I’m not even going to tell you how I bought them. Ok…I will, just to admit how bad my purchasing has gotten. I was brushing my teeth in the morning getting ready for work when I was browsing Etsy on my phone…and continued to purchase, even though my 3G kept dropping I was determined to finish my transaction…such a multi tasker I am. No time to waste when buying polish.
For my first Lush Lacquer post I have Cheetahlicious. I think it’s a pretty good representation of a cheetah in glitter polish form. Cheetahlicious is a clear based polish that has gold and holo micro glitter, brown, bronze and gold/holo hex glitter. I used Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in 3K or More as a base. I’m not too sure how well Cheetahlicious would layer on its own if you are going for complete coverage. The fomula is a little thick as stated by Lush Lacquer in their description, but I didn’t have a problem with application.
For the following pictures I used two coats of 3K or More since its pretty sheer, one coat of Cheetahlicious, one coat of Gelous and an additional coat of Seche to smooth it out. I’m very happy with the outcome of my first Lush Lacquer and will probably be purchasing more…damn lol.
You can purchase Lush Lacquer through their Etsy shop here. More colors are expected to be added to the shop soon so keep any eye out…I know I will
