Lilipad Lacquer ~ Blueberry


Lilipad Lacquer ~ Blueberry  
Cobalt blue crelly (crème/jelly)

Lilipad Lacquer – this is the new Australian brand that you should have heard about by now. I bought this pretty blue polish from Norway Nails, and I want to show you something cool I did with it!

But first: The polish! The formula is good and it applies easily, which is a great bonus. I’m not usually the best of friends with jellies, but this is a mix between a jelly and a crème, so I’m really happy with it’s application. Coverage is good too – two coats and it was fully opaque. Drying time: Average. Not fast, not slow. All in all, a good polish!

Let me show you two coats, no top coat:


Isn’t that just a lovely blue? I’ve got a secret crush on this shade of blue, but the other polishes I have that colour are all shimmers. So I don’t have anything else like it in my collection, yay!


It’s so deliciliciously pretty that I took, like, a brazillion pictures! :D


Then, I applied a layer of white shimmer. I used H&M “Snow White”, and as soon as it was on, I dapped my nail with a rough sponge. When all my nails were done, I applied a layer of topcoat, and here is what that looked like:


Pretty, no? I would wear it like this, if it wasn’t that I had other plans!


I grabbed another polish, this time a Femme Fatale I also got from Norway Nails to review a while ago (see review of it here): A Frosty Shake. It’s a multisized glitter in various colours, mainly white, and it’s gorgeous. I dabbed the glitter onto my nails with a makeup sponge, and when I was done I sealed it all up with a layer of Poshé topcoat, and here’s the final result:



How’s that for a mani?


I like the glitter dabbed on like that, it gives a more frosted look, I think. I know it’s not exactly the time for frosty nails, but hey, I like it! :D


What about you girls, do you like this? I must say that it turned out exactly the way I wanted it to, yay!!
