Road to Polish Con: Bluebird, Don Deeva, and Nvr Enuff

The Road to Polish Con is back as a preview for the September 23 Polish Con event in Chicago. I am delighted to be involved again as both Director of the event and Official RTPC Blogger! If you missed the NYC Road to Polish Con, you can find photos and links here.

I and five other “official” Polish Con Bloggers and Swatchers are sharing each polish with you first! We'll adventure together down the Road to Polish Con every Thursday for a full eleven weeks.
The polishes release Sunday morning at 8am central, will be available to pre-order for one week, and then the shop is refreshed with different polishes for the next launch.

August Hella Holo Customs: Lacquester

I am honored to be one of this month's guests for the Hello Holo Customs group on facebook. The brands featured in August are KBShimmer and Lacquester. The pre-order launch is open now through September 5th and you'll need to be a member of Hella Holo Customs to get the purchase links for each polish.

The color descriptions italicized are provided by the brand and my comments are beneath each of them.

Bingo Flamingo
a coral based polish with gold shimmer, tiny (flat) holographic glitter and a subtle scattered holographic finish.


Super vibrant coral, almost neon. The gold shimmer really pops in bright lighting. I wore three coats to ensure no vnl in photos, but it was mostly opaque in two.

I Lilac You
a spectraflair holographic base with lots of blue/violet and pink glow particles with a scattered holographic finish. Used with a top coat it will be totally smooth.


Absolutely stunning and super sparkly, this polish glows! I wore two coats with topcoat.

Poppy Like It's Hot
a mint/blue base with gold/orange/red multichrome flakies, small holographic glitter and a scattered holographic finish. Used with a top coat it will be totally smooth.


The base, to me, is a medium teal shade. Loving this one so much, I'm wearing it for Jason's birthday tomorrow. The shimmer, multichrome flakes and holo sparks add complexity and interest. I wore two coats and topcoat.

Each of these have fantastic formula, beautiful packaging and are opaque in two coats. I'm still wearing Poppy Like It's Hot, but I didn't notice any staining on removal of the other two. All were smooth to the touch after topcoat was applied.

Also available are the polishes from KBShimmer that I reviewed yesterday.
