Lilypad Lacquer ~ Frogs Alive

Lilypad Lacquer ~ Frogs Alive  
Acid green strong linear holo

It’s been a while since I featured a Lilypad Lacquer on my blog, so it’s that time again. It’s actually also been a while since I purchased any of them. Frogs Alive is my latest buy and today – right here, right now - it’s time for it to flash its rainbows!

Application was easy because the formula is good. It takes two coats to make this look its best and the drying time is good.

No sun available that day, so here’s two coats and no topcoat, taken with flash:

The rainbows are pretty kerrazy in Frogs Alive....
And so is the colour.

I ♥ rainbows!

Here is a low light picture:

I didn’t quite know what to do with this so I ended up with dots – again :D
I made three white dots on each nail and when that was dry I made a green glitter dot on each of the white dots.
My white is a Savina called Fantasy Files, and the green glitter is from McFresh and is called Lady Scales. I applied a layer of topcoat when the dots were dry. Here’s my final mani:

A last shot:

I couldn’t quite decide if I liked this or not. I am not sure why… perhaps it’s because the green is a little bit outside my comfort zone. Or maybe I should have added a darker colour too, that might have helped.

Do you like it?

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Durability: Good
Removal: No problems
Overall impression: Crazy colour with crazy rainbows.
Buy again: Yes

  1. Uhmmm... The green is kind of poisonous. I don't feel comfortable wearing such shades but I like watching them in photos. It looks very well, especially on the third one.

    1. Poisonous is a great word for it, it's exactly what it is :) And thanks :)

  2. I love the rainbows, but I really do not like yellow-greens to put it nicely ;)
    But it does look good on you - so no worries!

    1. I know it's not your favourite, so I'm glad I get to keep this one ;)

  3. That color is just amazing! I think I need this polish :)

  4. Really cool green, it´s beautiful on you!! :-)

  5. Beautiful! I have this polish and need to wear it again!

  6. Oh wow what a gorgeous green holo! Loving it :-)

  7. wow this is a really unique polish! the green itself is not seen that often and the holo in this is crazy strong!!

    1. Lilypad makes some really cool holos for sure :)
