Lush Lacquer Chicks Rule, Swatches and a Simple Skittlette

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! A while back I was contacted by Karin of Lush Lacquer asking me if I was interested in trying some of her polishes. Lush Lacquer is one of those indie brands that has been around from almost the beginning - I have known about them since I started buying indies last year, and they've been on my "to try" list for quite some time. In terms of indies, they have a strong product and business - lots of variety in their shop, nice bottles with screen printed labels, and lots of stock available.

I was sent three polishes from their new Neon Collection, and I have the first for you today. The other two I will post very soon. If you are into the neon glitter trend, you must take a look at these. :)

Lush Lacquer Chicks Rule

Chicks Rule caught my eye immediately. It's a clear-based glitter topper - it looks like the base is a sheer pink colour but it's just the effect of all the glitter. It has a mix of neon orange, pink, and purple hex glitter in different sizes ranging from very tiny to large. I love the inclusion of tiny glitter, it adds more interest for some reason.

The formula is good, it spreads on very smooth. I find that it is not too glitter dense, so I had to use two coats here. Make sure to let the bottle sit upside down for 15 minutes first and do some shaking before applying.

For the swatches I applied Chicks Rule over a simple two colour gradient of OPI My Vampire is Buff and Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink. Then I redid my nails on my ring and middle fingers for a simple skittlette. On my ring finger is Bubblegum Pink with a heart stud from the Born Pretty Store. And on my middle, a taped off gradient using Bubblegum Pink and Girly Bits Private Dancer over My Vampire is Buff.

I really liked the skittlette and I ended up wearing it for another day. It was also nice to wear Chicks Rule over a simple gradient and I think it is a nice way to change up the usual swatch.

    1. I can see that happening with indie polishes if a maker makes a lot of polishes and tends to like a particular look. Glad you liked the design though! :)

  2. Have a lot of Lushes polishes, but I agree with Kelli, their polishes are starting to all look alike.

    1. Thanks Victoria, hopefully the makers see the comments on this post and take it as feedback. It sounds like they've found something that works for them, but maybe they need to branch out a bit more.

  4. This polish is HOT! I love it, really! I thought the base was a jelly pink but the fact that it's clear makes it even better! And that name! ;)

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Criminal Nails! Because the base is clear you can layer it over anything without it changing the base colour, and I like that about it! Makes it more versatile in my books. :)
