Last Sunday at 4 AM I had a serious case of insomnia. I picked up my trusty iPhone 4 and began to Google for polishes. I had a desire for something milky with pastel glitters. This, my friends, is my weakness. I love all kinds of polishes but there is something enchanting about these finishes for me. By some miraculous stroke of luck, I happened upon a blog post for a polish called Carebear Stare by Lacquer Lust. Being an 80's child, I again was drawn to it. The swatches were pretty and the review was good so I impulsively added it to my cart and ordered it before I changed my mind. The polish was 8.00 with 2.50 shipping. For indies I like to stay under 10 that's my max so I got this one with the shipping for that.
The email response was prompt. I then received a second email on Tuesday 12:25 AM advising me my order was ready for shipping and a tracking number assigned. I got my polish on Wednesday people! WOW! When I got the package, my special treatment continued. I have purchased polish online before but never received anything like this.
|How adorable is this?|
Please excuse the messy desk but I was so excited to show it off. I will be putting it on tonight and will update this when I do. I just wanted to say how awesome I think Lacquer Lust is. I have treasured every moment of this polish purchase like none other. I will be buying from her in the future.
However, when I posted this to a forum of indie polish lovers, we soon discovered her site is only showing a pre-order for a birthstone collection and this one is nowhere to be found. While I am sad, I am extremely lucky to be able to own it. So if you want this gem, please keep trying her.
Almost two months after I first made this post, I realized I never posted any photos of my swatches. At the time my nails were very short and I wasn't happy with the pictures. Here is three thin coats of Carebear Stare.
