Sinful Colors Hottie with a dab of Kleancolor Chunky Copper, overlaid with Wet n’ Wild Kaleidoscope.
Riften overlaid with Chunky Holo Black.
Lilac Coolers overlaid with Chunky Copper, Chunky Holo Black, and Fantasy Fire.
OPI Just Spotted the Lizard overlaid with Dragonspell and Chunky Copper; fades to Hottie.
I couldn’t decide what to do, so I DID IT ALL.
The real Chunky Holo Black is incredible, especially for a $3-$4 polish; it’s ridiculous.
I was worried about Riften upon seeing it flat on my palette, but it’s awesome on the nail. Berry-amber shift (like Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Amber Ruby) with a subtle golden green on the edges. Makes me miss running around with my sword and spells in the Autumn Forest. Highly recommend PrettyJelly; she’s great.
L'Oreal Lilac Coolers is pretty and layers well.
Dragonspell by ALIQUIDLaquer. Beautiful & unique.
Essie’s Bouncer, It’s Me!. I wanted an electric blue jelly and since Essie is so popular I expected good quality. But the application is streaky and uneven, and it dries to a finish that looks like cheap blue candle wax. Not one to wear without a topcoat, for sure.
Okay, I am a bit of a nail polish fiend, so when a local friend who makes her own amazing polish (which I wear all the time) said she was going to open an Etsy shop, I proposed she make me an official WTFBadRomanceCovers set. These are the results, based on lots of our recurring themes here and of course the most popular WTFBRC post of all time.
You can pick them up here, and Nail Tisane was nice enough to even gave me a promo code, WTFRC, so you can save 5% on them if you decide to pick them up! She’s selling them individually, as well as in sets that get you a little bit of a discount. (There may even be a secret bonus polish if you order the whole set.)
I used the ‘spray alcohol on polish dripped in water’ method for this, the base is Elevation Polish - Wagagai, and the neon polishes used are Elevation Polish - Base of Huangshan(yellow), Models Own - Bubblegum(pink), FingerPaints - Pop Art Purple(purple obvs), and Nina Ultra Pro - Cobalt(blue)
So, here’s the first polish I have to show you from Mod Lacquer: Galactic Aura.
It’s a very pretty teal-purple duochrome with fine holographic glitter. Pictured is two coats with one coat of Glossy Glam top coat.
All in all, this is a very nice polish. It dried quickly and matte, with a very slight grit (probably from the glitter). One coat of top coat smoothed that right out and brought out the colors more. The only issue I encountered was a little bit of setting during application, but it wasn’t difficult to manage.
I had a hard time capturing the shift in photos, but rest assured, it’s there. I could see it best indoors. As with most duochromes, the shift is much more visible in the bottle.
See? How pretty! (Btw, this has reminded me why I never take bottle shots. Sorry they’re awkward; I have no idea how some girls do it, and I have mad respect for them!)
I love this polish! I had fun watching it on my fingers as I went about my day - typing, cleaning, rehearsing, everything! I wore it for two days with little to no wear. The only real chip I came from repairing my friend’s flute with my nail because I didn’t have my screwdriver on me, so I don’t think that one counts. I definitely recommend this polish!
