Lacquerhead Polish Part I : Gracie, Fairy Frosting and My Little Rosebud

Hi there, my darlings!! Today I have some polishes from an indie maker whose brand was very nearly the very first indie I fell in love with--Lacquerhead Polish! I've known Alischia of Lacquerhead from way before I ever thought of blogging and I was a wide-eyed newbie in the shiny, shiny world of polish! So, as you can imagine, it's quite the privilege for me to be working with Alischia today!

While we were corresponding, Alischia asked me to pick 4 polishes which I liked for review and I was immediately drawn to the Gracie (of course, it's a holo!), My Little Rosebud and the two jelly glitters, Full Tealt and Space Cadet 2.0--Alischia, being a sweetheart, threw in Fairy Frosting and a fabulous cuticle oil too!

For this post, I'd like to show you the first three of the bunch--Gracie, Fairy Frosting and My Little Rosebud. Now before we jump right into pices and formula, I'd like to draw your attention to the adorable little bow that comes on each and every one of Lacquerhead Polish's bottles, minis and full-size--it's this attention to detail and the added feminine touch that made me fall so in love with Lacquerhead so many months ago! I mean, you have all these beautiful mainstream bottles but a bottle with a bow?! Bring it on! And thus an addiction was born! =D

Alrighty then! Moving right along! First up, I have for you Gracie, a gorgeous light turquoise blue holo. The formula on this polish is a little on the thicker side so I suggest using a good base like NFU OH's Aqua Base and generous coats. The finish is almost metallic in shine and look! I used 3 coats for the swatches below, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl.

Next, I have a very new release from Lacquerhead, Fairy Frosting--a lovely shimmery white with a dark pinkish-reddish flash! The application on this was flawless and I used 3 coats for the swatches below, topped with 1 coat of G&G's HK Girl. I'm really loving the way this looks with my complexion!

In fact, I loved this one so much, I decided to use it as the base for my very first attempt at a waterfall manicure! I used a thin-bristled striping brush to add strokes of Gracie, Revlon Royal and Color Club Angel Kiss to create the finished look. The pics below show the finished look, with and without flash! Not horrible for my first attempt but I do believe there's ample room for improvement! =P

Last but not least, I have for you My Little Rosebud--a rosy pink mica polish with small gold hexes and circles. The application on this was really easy--no fishing for glitters! But being a mica-based polish, I suggest a thicker topcoat such as Gelous to smooth out the look even further. I used 3 coats for the swatches below, topped with 2 coats of G&G's HK Girl.

With flash!

So there you have it, my darlings! If you need to add any of these beauties to your stash, you can find them HERE for $8 for a full-size, 0.5 oz bottle of glitter/jelly polish or $10 for a full-size, 0.5 oz bottle of holo polish!
