Firecracker Lacquer Your Mom Thought I Was Big Enough

Firecracker Lacquer is one of my favorite quirky brands. The lady who runs it is a dear friend, and her eye for the unusual is sharp. This particular polish is no exception. It is a shifting dervish of awesome, and I can't wait to wear it on everything.

I am having a bad go lately, when it comes to judging polish in the bottle. I discounted the Queen's Crown...and now this. I'm losing my touch, y'all. I am so glad I am wrong though. Look at this shift! See the glitter floating like tiny stars in a pinky-orange nebula of awesome? I love it and want to wear it over all the things. I definitely see this making a come-back if/when I start up The Planets series again.

I think I won this in a contest in the fan group. She sent it to me with some regular swatch mail, so I'm not sure which is my Major Award. I swatched it on a stick, and was overall kinda...meh. But I'm trying to leave no polish behind, so I slapped one simple coat over my new favorite black polish, and I was stunned. It screamed to life as a topper. I saw shifts that evaded my eyes when it was alone, glittering scattered holo that instantly reminded me of the night sky...sigh. I was wrong. Happily, happily wrong. I can't wait to try it over a thousand colors....oh and maybe matte!

If you don't have this brand in your collection yet, you definitely should. Her formula is outta this world, and her naming schemes will keep a smile on your face all day. She also offers micro gems in her Etsy shop, and sends delicious delicious candy along with each order.
