Hello everyone! Today I have a polish to show you that I received in a swap with another blogger: Firecracker Lacquer A Marriage Marred by Murder.
This is a red based jelly polish with glitters of silver, pink and black, shreds of black. The glitters applied unevenly and the polish as a whole applied thinly. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
This isn’t my favorite polish ever but I like the mix of colors. What do you think?
Hi everyone! I’m digging this post out of the archives – I just realized I never shared my first attempt at reciprocal gradients with you. I used Firecracker Lacquer The Grape Beyond and Top Shelf Lacquer Blackberry Margarita for this nail art.
I started off with The Grape Beyond [swatched previously]. I then created a gradient with Blackberry Margarita.
Then using straight line nail vinyls, I created a plaid pattern and did the gradient the opposite way.
It didn’t come out too bad, though my husband remarked “I don’t really see anything special.” Grr!
Here’s Top Shelf Lacquer Blackberry Margarita by itself. It’s described as a “rich navy linear holo jelly with an prominent flair that glistens fabulously.”
Formula was pretty good! This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Both these polishes are still in stock – The Grape Beyond here and Blackberry Margarita here – if you want to try your hand at this!
Happy Tuesday, ya’ll! Today is a big post, so let’s get to it. The November duo from Darling Diva Polish & Firecracker Lacquer called Get In My Mouth was so stunning, I knew I needed to nab it.
First from Firecracker Lacquer is a holographic nail polish called Stuff That Turkey.
Good morning all! I can’t believe it’s the last week of 2015, can you? Seriously December just flew by and I’m amazed 2016 is right around the corner. Just a quick review of The Grape Beyond by Firecracker Lacquer for you this morning before we get into the weekly links from the Beauty Blog Coalition. 🙂
The Grape Beyond is a warm, red-toned purple creme nail polish. Shown here is 2 thin coats plus top coat, as it dries matte.
I’ve used thin coats as thick coats make this polish a little unmanageable. You do need to let each coat dry well before applying another coat as otherwise you’ll have dragging.
This is one of my first experiences with Firecracker Lacquer. I honestly wasn’t sure about this polish at first because I used thicker coats and it didn’t apply too nicely. I’m glad I tried again with thinner coats! This also was priced nicely for an indie creme polish – only $7.50 as of this writing.
I do have one other polish from Firecracker Lacquer and I look forward to trying out more! Now let’s see what the Beauty Blog Coalition members had going on this week:
