Yay!! We made it!! Last post for me, for now lol. This time though I have a new to me indie brand. Liz from Vixen Lacquers contacted me about 2 weeks ago about swatching her summer collection based on electronic dance music. This is especially huge this summer! Which is great for me because neon is my favorite color. However, I know nothing about nothing EDM. I myself, am a (heavy) metal head lol. What I do know about is polish! We definitely have some good ones here. Check them out! First up is Rave Bra. This is an awesome glitter topper with a clear scattered holo base. There are fuchsia circles, pink holo circles, and pink holo squares. This is so blingy! I did have to fish and swirl a little to get the glitters on the brush. You know how I feel about heavy glitters. Sinking happens and its really not a deal breaker! I don’t mind at all and if you do you can just put your bottle upside down for a few minutes before polishing. This works with any polish that has big glitters! I used 1 coat, plus some glitter placement, over OPI Infinite Shine To Infinity and Blue-yond. I love the contrast of colors!! I used 1 generous coat of top coat to smooth out the circles.

This one I love. Under The Electric Sky 2.0 is a black base that’s a little sheer but builds beautifully. It has holo squares and a mix of tiny and micro holo glitters! This one being on the sheer side helps the glitters “swim” on the nail! 3 thin perfect coats with a top coat!
This polish right here, Neon Lights, just jumped to somewhere in my top 5 favorite polishes ever! EVER!!! Its a perfectly squishy jelly polish. The color is just amazing!! I used 4 thin coats for this swatch with top coat. What??? 4???? I know I know. It only needed 2 good coats really. But with the neon yellow glitter that gets greener with each extra coat, I could not help myself! Best part, It dries faster than your average jelly polish! so 4 thin coats really wasn’t a big deal at all. LOOK AT ALL THAT DEPTH!!!!! I NEED THIS BABY IN A FULL SIZE!! I can’t wait to try it over white! Aahhhhh, so excited lol!
