I'm so excited to introduce you to a new UK Indie brand today! Lacquerdaisical polishes (love the name!) are hand made by lovely Alexia, and she contacted me recently to ask if I would give them a try. At the moment her range includes glitters, toppers, thermal polishes and a glow in the dark texture polish - how could I say no?! I have the thermals to show you today, and I hope you love them as much as I do! (Be prepared for an onslaught of pictures!)
The first polish I had to get on my paws when I tore into the package like a savage beast was Jaffa Fake, a brown to orange thermal with a gorgeous purple shimmer. How clever is the name? And the polish is just as genius! When it's cool it's a stunning chocolate brown, with fine purple shimmer running through it adding tonnes of depth and interest. Then once it warms up it shifts to a delicate orange, still showing the shimmer, and just looks good enough to eat! I had lots of fun running my fingers under hot and cold water, bumpung my nails against radiators and cold drinks and even putting my hands in the oven and the freezer! Don't try that at home! It's just such a fun polish!
Once I'd finished risking third degree burns, I had to stamp over it, and it was so pretty!
The other thermal is Purple Phase, a stunning deep aubergine with violet shimmer when cold, which transforms into a stunning grey-blue when it warms up. The shimmer in this is just stunning when it's warm, leaving such a delicate sheen in contrast to the dark cool colour.
Of course, I had to get the stamping gear out again!
The formula on these was quite thick, but not at all gloopy and I had no trouble with application. I used three coats and there is still a fair bit of visible nail line underneath in the warm state. If this bothers you (to be honest, it didn't bother me at all and usually I'm not keen on VNL) you could wear a nude shade underneath, or a colour close to the colour of the polish when it's warm and it wont affect the thermal aspect at all. They dry matte, but Lacquerdaisical recommends base and top coat, and I would as well! These polishes are such a lot of fun, and I think I'll be getting a lot of use out of them!
At the moment, Alexia is selling Lacquerdaisical polishes through the Facebook page, priced at just £2.50 for a 5ml bottle or £6 for 15ml. Please go and check her out! I'll have more to show you over the next week or so, starting with an AWESOME glow in the dark texture polish on Friday!
