Anonymous Lacquer: Liberty Enlightning The World
Steel blue linear holo

Today I’m going to show you an awesome polish from Anonymous Lacquer. It’s a custom that was made for me four years ago. It’s a lovely blue linear holo based on a picture of The Statue Of Liberty.

The formula has thickened quite a bit over the years. The polish was still easy to apply but the drying time was slow. I felt as if I had to be careful with what I did with my nails for most of the day but eventually it dried all the way through.

The two stripes are stamped on and are from the stamping plate “Nicole Diary-L04”. I stamped with a stamping polish from El Corazón called “Fuchsia”.

This is the end result, including a layer of topcoat.

Enchanted Polish: Twinkles
Described as a royal blue holographic micro glitter

The formula of “Twinkles” is on the thick side but still super easy to work with. I used two coats for full opacity and the drying time is good.

I didn’t quite know what to do with it so I started with Color Club’s “Hot Like Lava”, which is a metallic foil polish from 2011. I made a simple brush stroke with that on each nail. Then I went for another Color Club, Harp On It, which is a beautiful silver linear holo. I made a stripe along the pink and then a stripe across. I honestly didn’t quite know where I was heading so I thought I’d better stop while I actually still liked the way my manicure looked :D

This is the final result in the sun.
