Lilypad Lacquer ~ Edwardo the Barber

Lilypad Lacquer ~ Edwardo the Barber
Described as Smokey violet with blue shimmer

Here’s another Dazzled exclusive I bought while it was still available. Edwardo the Barber is based on the movie Edward Scissorhands and I almost didn’t buy it because of that – Edward Scissorhands just doesn’t do it for me, I’m sorry. Plus my boyfriend actually knew someone called Edwardo, who was known as Edweirdo. Dunno why I still laugh at that.

Anyway, back to the polish. Formula is good, just like I’ve come to expect from my Lilypads, and it took two coats to achieve full opacity. Drying time is good.

I like the way Edwardo the Barber looks, but I have the same problem that I had with “The Wedding” which I showed you yesterday: I can’t seem to get the same colour out of my bottle as the pictures on the website suggest. Clickhere to see what Edweird…I mean Edwardo looks like on Dazzled’s site.

And here’s what my version looks like – this is a flash picture:

Another flash picture:

This is what the polish looks like in low lights:

I like the blue shimmer a lot.

I decided to match it with two other polishes. First I used a striper brush to paint H&M’s white shimmery polish “Snow White” on two thirds of the nails. After that I used Zoya’s green shimmer “Giovanna” on the lower one third of the nails. I topcoated the whole thing, and this is what my final mani ended up looking like:

I love these three polishes together!

Here they are in their bottles, because I love bottle shots!

The nail of my index finger broke, but I’m not the kind of girl who cries over broken nails unless it actually hurts physically. But I did file down the rest of my nails to match the really short one. Fortunately I like my nails short, so it’s no big deal for me, I just thought I’d mention it – it is a blog after all.  ;)

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: pretty good
Finish: Holo with shimmer
Overall impression: Yes, It’s an okay polish. I just wish that I didn’t feel disappointed over the colour
Buy again: No


  1. I like what you created, it almost looks like a sky with Northern light :)

  2. Sorry about the broken nail! I love short nails too, even if I'm wearing mine not so short :D
    Love what you've created here :)

    1. Ah well, it's only a broken nail, they grow out really fast again :)

  3. It's really pretty but again not what the photo looks like!! :-| I like the final mani :-D

    1. Thank you! And no, I'm disappointed in the photos! :)
