EDITED from original post!!
I love my friend Valesha’s blog Peachy Polish, and decided to borrow (read: steal) her Undie Sunday idea! Here are some of the polishes I have used under glitters and designs!
First up are a few shades from Ethereal Lacquer. I was a bit unhappy that they were very different colors in person from swatches I have seen, but they are still pretty.
Ethereal Lacquer Mint Madness. Four coats plus topcoat to even it out. These were all on the thick side but applied evenly.
I LavenDare You. This color was inconsistent with the swatches I have seen. Meagan from Ethereal Lacquer told me she had some pigment issues and is working super hard to fix this – she is even sending another polish to replace this! What a sweetheart. Can you say customer service? Yowza!!!!!
Chelsea Rose. Another 4 coater with topcoat. Pretty pink, but not as bright as I expected.
Essie Bottle Service. Love this slightly orange leaning bright pink. This went on in 3 easy, thin coats, shown with topcoat.
Essie Bouncer It’s Me is a lovely deep blue. The formula, however, leaves a LOT to be desired. It is thin, streaky, and left bald patches. This is five (yeah. I know.) thin coats plus topcoat, and that is kind of too many for my taste. The color is lovely, however. Sorry for the pale skin but I wanted you to get the real color here!
Good times. More nail art, swatches, and other fun things coming this week!
