Doctor Lacquer Cartwheel nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! I have a new-to-me brand on the blog today: Doctor Lacquer. They had a sale awhile back and so I picked up 4 polishes: 1 full size and 3 medium (10.5ml). Cartwheel is one of them and it is so beautiful!

Cartwheel is a warm-sensitive thermal, described as “a jelly base that transitions from dark and deep when cold, and light and gray to almost white when warm;” showing the “violet, blue and green shifts, and possibly colors in between depending on the angle and light source/strength.” Above shows how Cartwheel looks on my nails naturally with no forced changes.

Shown above is how my nails look after I’ve stuck them in ice cold water. I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. The formula is thin, and obviously sheer; you also need to let each coat dry to prevent dragging.

The purple shift to my nails was so enjoyable to see! The medium size bottles are actually really great, I enjoy that size and shape of the bottle; the brushes (at least in the medium size) are flat brushes.

My first experience so far with Doctor Lacquer is mostly positive. Shipping from purchase to door was 3 days. I do like the polishes I bought but one I had a problem with. I’ve emailed but as of yet, I haven’t received a reply back (2 days later). Edit: I heard back right before this post went live and am receiving a refund. I suggest if you’re unsure (like I was), to try out the medium size bottles. Have you had any experiences with Doctor Lacquer?
