Hello Berry Patch! Since I interviewed the creator of Elixir Lacquers this past Friday, today I have a review of one of her polishes for you. And if you continue reading to the bottom of this post, you will get an opportunity to own one of her most popular sellers for FREE! Now I do need to mention that both of these gorgeous polishes were generously donated to me by Nicole of Elixir Lacquers, so I have to put in my disclaimer. **Even though this product was sent to me free of charge with the intent for me to review it, I promise I am still giving you my honest opinion that would be the same as if I had purchased the product myself.** The polish you see me wearing in the pictures above is called Powder Keg. This polish is very well named because it’s full of small black glitter that resemble little pieces of gun powder. But there are also some little blue and silver pieces of glitter in there as well, and they really shine and give the whole look a bit of a blue tinge when you get out in the sun. And all this lovely uniformed sized glitter in floating in a base that has a slight grey tint to it. Just by looking at this polish in the bottle I thought the base was going to be a lot more pigmented, but you actually need to apply about 3 coats before you can really tell that the base isn’t just clear. This glitter packed polish had no problems at all during application – definitely no fishing required here. I didn’t use any underwear (a base color underneath) this time because I always like to see what a polish looks like on it’s own first. And in order for it to really look opaque I felt like I needed that 3rd coat, but it is definitely wearable with just two coats. And I topped it off with two generous coats of Seche Vite, and that really smoothed out all that micro glitter. In terms of wear, Powder Keg has done amazingly! I am now on day 4 of wear and I have absolutely no chips and no free edge wear. And it really gives me a good feel on my nails – like they have a nice protective layer on. This is really nice since I know the removal process for this polish is going to be a pain, so I want to get as much wear as possible before having to deal with taking it off. Overall, this is a great polish that is well worth the space in your collection. But the polish you all (even those international berries!) will have a chance to win, is Elixir Lacquers With A K – which is another of Nicole’s glitter polishes, but this time it’s packed with pink, silver and holo glitter.
