Lilypad Lacquer ~ Violet Moon



Lilypad Lacquer ~ Violet Moon
Sky blue linear holo with violet shimmer

I received Violet Moon in a swap recently (yes, I still find it really fun to swap) and it’s such a polish that’s way prettier on the nails than in the bottle. I like it when it’s like that.

I used two coats for my mani and the drying time is good.

Here’s two coats and no topcoat taken with flash:


Here’s a lightbox picture. The shimmer is a little bit shy.


I paired it with China Glaze’s “Let the Beat Drop” which is a slightly tinted base with pink, orange, lilac and purple glitter in various sizes. I bought in on special last time I was in Sweden. I’m so envious of the Swedes because they can buy China Glaze in H&M. Our H&Ms here don’t sell that.

Anyway, I dapped glitter by the base of each nail, topped it with topcoat and here’s my final mani:


I really like these colours together!


Here are the two polishes I used.


Never judge a book by its cover or the nail polish by the bottle. Try it, you might be positively surprised!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo with shimmer
Overall impression: Nice colour, good quality polish
Buy again: Yes

  1. It is pretty - I also love when a polish is prettier on the nails than in the bottle - the other way around is a disaster LOL
