Hello lovelies!

Look whose back! Me! I have to admit that I’m really glad I took last week off from blogging, because there’s no way I would have been able to keep up with how busy things were at work. There were some early mornings and late nights (Thursday I ended up going in at 8:30am and not leaving until 4am on Friday, and then was back at 10am….,) so yeah, the week off was good haha! I feel more energized towards blogging too, and am ready to get back to writing posts for you guys. So, to kick off this week let’s look at some MidWest Lacquer polishes!

*All swatches shown with one coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

First up is Heartless! This one is a blue leaning grey creme polish that is filled with micro flakies and a slight shimmer. I found the formula of this easy to work with and it built up to opacity nicely in just two coats.

Unfortunately, as you guys can see, the flakies and shimmer in here didn’t photograph all that well and thats because they’re kind of hard to see on the nail. I think the base is too opaque and it covers most of the awesome shimmer you see in the bottle. But with that being said, I am still really happy to have this polish in my collection because it’s a unique, grey color and I don’t own anything else even close to this!

Next up is Sandwiches & Buttermilk!swatch, sandwiches & buttermilk, silver, flakies, nails, nail polish, indie polish, midwest lacquer, polish those nails

Sandwiches & Buttermilk is a silver, flakie polish with a linear holo flash. My swatches are showing you guys three coats of polish. It built up really easily on its own and wasn’t thick on the nail, but you could layer this over another polish if you wanted too. This polish is so insanely sparkly! My camera hated it haha.

GAH! I don’t even know what to say about this polish. This was the reason that I ended up placing my order, and I’m so happy that I did because this beauty is incredible<3 Whenever I’m feeling down or just need something extra super, sparkly, and in your face, I’ll be reaching for this polish because DAMN! LOOK AT THOSE SPARKLES! My phone couldn’t even handle it’s awesomeness haha.

This was actually my Easter manicure! Pretty festive, right, haha? Meh, sorry about the lack of holiday nail art this year…I’m seriously the worst at remembering to do it. Anyways, these nails were my take on this pattern by Ashley Goldberg!

Look at how fun this one is when you pair it with bright colors?! Gah, I’ve never liked jelly polishes but I bet layering different colors over Sandwiches & Buttermilk would be really cool. This look was inspired by this pattern by Alice Alva.
