As I've mentioned in previous posts, I simply adore these boutique polish brands that are popping up these days. The latest of these that I've tried is Nostalgic Nail Lacquer. The shade I have to show you today is called Duckie, and it's part of Nostalgic's Pretty in Pink themed set, Bizarre Teenage Love Triangle.
Duckie is a mint green jelly with chartreuse, green and blue glitters. It is fairly sheer on its own, so I did three coats of Duckie over one coat of Colour Alike Catnip, which is a mint green creme.
The formula is good, though as is typical of these types of sparse glitters, I had to do a bit of digging and fiddling to get the amount of coverage I wanted from the glitter. It is completely worth it to me though. I absolutely adore this. It makes me think of spring time and Easter eggs. =)
The drying time was surprisingly fast once I had all the layers on there and added my top coat. I was expecting to have to wait quite a while for it to dry, so I was quite pleased when that turned out to not be the case.
And there you have it. I couldn't be happier with this polish. Nostalgic Nail Lacquer is available on Etsy, though she's currently out of stock as of the date and time I'm writing this post - apparently she's been inundated with orders, which I actually really like to hear with these independent brands. I love that the lacquerhead community is embracing these creations!
Happy Friday, and thanks for reading!
