Hi all! It's the first day of Indie Polish Week. Each day for the next week I will feature a different indie polish line. I came up with the idea for this series because I wanted to showcase the work of indie polish makers. First up is Indecisive Lacquer! Check out my full review and swatches after the jump.
Lush is a gorgeous green creme. Green is my favorite color so of course this was the one I was dying to swatch first! The formula on this one is very thick. I think the next time I use this I will add a little thinner to it. I was able to achieve opacity with just one coat and I had no streakiness or patches which was great. I noticed in the bottle that Lush has a subtle golden shimmer to it but it didn't really translate to the nail. I used one coat for pics and a top coat for shine.
Next up is Cosmic Bubbles. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I wasn't sure if I would like it but I actually love it! It is a super-pigmented "TARDIS" blue jelly with multi-shaped white glitter. I did have streak issues with this one but it even put after the second coat. I used two coats for the pics and still had VNL (visible nail line) so I think 3 thin coats would be best for full opacity. This dries to slightly matte finish so you will need top coat for shine.
Sparkly Vampire is a dark blood-red jelly with black and red glitters. This one is a stunner! I love colors like this! Formula-wise it is on the think side and did have a tendency to drag on the second coat. But I kind of got the hang of application by the second nail. Thin coats are key and allow a bit of drying time between coats to prevent dragging. I used two coats for the pics but I recommend three coats to get full opacity with no patches (which I should have done but was just too impatient!).
Last is Sugar. Sugar is a gorgeous silver scattered holo. I so wanted to get pics of this in the sun but the sun was on vacation apparently because it was nowhere to be found. Oh, well. I did some fiddling with my lighting so you can see it in direct light and shade. And honestly - even in the shade this is a gorgeous polish. You can wear this polish on it's own. I used two coats for the pics and achieved full opacity. I had no issues with application. The formula is jelly-like but really easy to work with. It does dry to a dull finish so top coat is definitely needed.
Indecisive Lacquer is sold on Etsy and retail for $9.50 for full size bottles and $5.75 for minis.
