NerdLacquer Shiny

I have to say that I am LOVING all these little boutique polish brands that are giving us such amazing polishes. Has there ever been a better time to be a polish collector than now? 

The latest brand I've tried is NerdLacquer, and I have to say I'm mighty impressed. Firstly, the fact that the polishes have themes like science and sci fi and fantasy and MONTY PYTHON just screams to a geek like me, "Buy me! Buy me!" And so I did. I picked out three of them to try, and I'm wearing the first one today, Shiny. Go Firefly!

Shiny is a pale shimmery blue with fine silver glitter and silver hex glitters. I also think that there's some tiny blue glitter in here, but I'm not positive. It's hard for me to tell even in the macro shot for sure - I actually think the darker specks in this photo are just reflections off the silver glitter.

For a glitter of this type, the formula is really great. It's slightly sheer, but JUST sheer enough that all the glitter and shimmer can be seen through the base color. I only used two coats, and I'm really satisfied with the coverage.

The pictures aren't even really doing this polish justice. It's more shimmery in person. It makes me feel like I have tiny chips of sparkling ice on my nails. Seriously... it's just beautiful.

I really can't say enough good about this polish. Great formula, beautiful and unique color, plus the theme just has me smitten.

NerdLacquer is available here. She's out of stock of a lot of the shades right now though, so you'll have to be patient. =)
