I’m in shock over everything that happened in Ottawa yesterday and still can’t believe that things I was watching and things that I was hearing were taking place in Canada. It’s amazing how soon your safety and your security can feel like it’s gone out the window and you realize that things can happen in moments.
All serious things aside, today I am bringing you a duo from one of my fave indie makers, Loaded Lacquer. At the beginning of the season, Heather released two polishes that she dubbed her ‘fall duo’ and the duo includes a ‘Jiggle‘ polish and a glitter topper.
Rusted Pumpkin is a burnt orange jelly polish. This one is one of the more sheer Jiggles that Heather has made and I used three coats for the swatch and as you can see, the nail in still visible through the polish. It was a little on the thicker side but easy to apply and easy to build-up.
Dark Chocolate Truffle is a glitter topper with gold, black and a reddish brown hex glitter in a clear base. The glitter sizes range from micro to medium.
The formula on this polish is great. It is, as I have come to love about the Loaded Lacquer polishes, nicely dense but easy to apply onto the nail. I used two coats over Rusted Pumpkin for the swatch and found the ratio of glitter to base was good.
Overall, the duo is a really nice set of fall polishes and I don’t have anything like either in my collection. I think if you can, you should be adding both to yours.
Loaded Lacquer can be purchased on their website and are $10 per bottle. She sells out very quickly so make sure you are up-to-date on her restocks by checking that page.
