I have some nice indie polishes to share with you tonight - Cool Waves Lacquer from Never Naked Nails.
Cool Waves Lacquer will launch in the New Year. But the polishes have been in testing mode since July. The polish is handmade completely from scratch. No store bought polishes are used. All of the polishes are made using various combinations of glitters, pigments, micas and 3-free lacquer bases.
These polishes applied great. I didn't have to fish for glitter and it applied evenly. The dry time was pretty quick. I did not use a top coat for these swatches.
Let's move on to the swatches.
Lizard Lamada is from the Lush Lizard Collection. It is a green multi-sized holographic glitter in a green base. It is basically a top coat polish. I used several colors so you can see the possibilities. Orly "Jealous Much" is on the pointer finger. Milani "White on the Spot" is on the middle finger. Venique "Whiskey Vamp" on the ring and Milani "Black Swift" is on the pinkie. I used one coat of Lizard Lambada on each. Over the white you can really see that it has a light green base. The final color is very similar to the swatch over "Jealous Much."
Ole Fishin' Hole is multi-sized iridescent and regular glitter top coat and is from the Country Collection. It is in a light blue base. It has larger iridescent glitter pieces that really don't show well in the photos but add depth to the base. Venique "Whiskey Vamp" is on the pointer finger. Picture Polish "Sky"
is on the middle finger. Barielle "Jordana's Skinny Jeans" is on the ring and Milani
"White on the Spot" is on the pinkie. I used one coat of Lizard Lambada on each.
I am pleased with the effects of these polishes. I would use a nice top coat to show off the shine more and smooth the finish.
