Freaky Friday with Vivid Lacquer
So, freaky Friday? Perhaps I should have called it fast Friday because this is a really quick swatch and blog entry about a one of a kind sample I scored from Vivid Lacquer in last week's sale.
I decided to do a sort of speed post to challenge myself and because she's having another sale TODAY with more one of a kinds for just $5!!
If you follow Vivid Lacquer, you probably know that sales at her shop are quite a rarity. I was excited about last week's sale and then she went and set up another one for today!
So I wanted to share my experience with last week's sale in case some of you were hesitant or hadn't heard the news yet!
The polish I scored is called WTF F 12 14 and it came in the mail today! As soon as I opened it I knew I had to put it on my nails right away. I love it more than I thought I would when I saw the shop photos Friday last week.
On my swatching hand I currently have one finger of pink glitter called Smooth Operator from Lumina Lacquer that I tried out this morning to check opacity for when I wear it. On the rest of my fingers is Red Dog Designs Shamrock Shake texture with top coat except that my ring finger is also topped with I'm Drinking Stars from Literary Lacquer. I looked at my nails and thought, hmmm pink goes good with green and so my swatch of Vivid Lacuqer WTF F 12 14 was born. And then. Freaky Friday became a name for it, like ten minutes ago as I was typing the title. :D
I didn't do much clean up, so those teeeeeeeeny awesome black speckly glitters may show up on my skin in some of the photos. But that's ok, right? Cause look at the glitter! ;)
I wore one coat and did not dig or fish or redip for glitter at all. This was brushed on just like any other polish I'd wear.
You can really get a good look at those little tiny black glitters sitting on top of the white skull in this macro shot. I LOVE those!!!
Now, can you believe this polish was scratched from production, offered as a one of a kind and only $5? I know I keep repeating that but I just can't believe what a steal it was.
Are you still here? Reading? What!? Go Shop!
Not only is she offering one of a kinds and small batch protos, but she is also discontinuing several polishes from her core line and those are also only $5!
