Indie Polishes - Laquerlicious Summer Glitter Toppers

Today I have for you the Summer Glitter Toppers collection from  my absolute favorite glitter polish maker Laquerlicious.  I first became aware of this brand after liking her Facebook while entering a random giveaway.  I didn't win any polish from that contest but I did win the ultimate prize, I found this gem of an indie polish maker.  My first purchase was a LE Valentine's Day polish and from that moment on I was hooked.  I was lucky enough to get two of her polishes that were featured in the A Indied subscription box offered by Llarowe.  There was a few left over and although I didn't subscribe I was able to purchase them individually.

I love everything about Laquerlicious glitter bombs.  Each one is chocked full of so many different shapes, sizes and colors of glitters.  You will never get the same look twice.  They are incredibly versatile.  I have so much polish it's that fact alone has me reaching for my bottles time and time again.  The possibilities are endless once you change up what you layer them with.  Glitter heavy polishes are not for everyone but there is nobody who makes them better than Michelle.

First up is Blowin' Bubbles.  When I look at this polish I smile.  It's a clear base jam packed with what is described as "a fun mix of circle (bubble) glitter, star glitter, silver hologram glitter, pastel hex & dot glitter and neon pink glitter!"  I couldn't agree more.   The first thing I thought of when I saw this bottle is my favorite childhood show Jem and the Holograms.  I decided to do my manicure with another childhood favorite of mine My Little Pony.  For this look I used a base of Lime Crime Crema de Limon then a layer of Blowin' Bubbles.  I then added layer of L'Oreal Bananarama Love from the Miss Candy collection.  I topped it off with another layer of Blowin' Bubbles then a coat of Seche Vite.  For the accent nail I used My Boyfriend Scales Walls and then a decal using My Online Shop plate Jr-11.  I used Crema de Limon for the hair and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Knockout Pink for the pony. 

Next is Sip of Summer.  A clear base with pastel glitters in hex, star and triangle glitters.  I love that you can layer this over anything.  The matte glitters are a perfect edition to this trio of toppers.  It works for jelly sandwiches or to look like sprinkles on a cupcake. The glitters are great sized, not too large.  It even looks really cool over black.  For this look I wanted to showcase the glitters so I only used one coat of Sip of Summer over SinfulShine Pragmatic with an accent of another decal made using My Online Shop plate Special Edition and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes in I-rush Luck and In Record Lime.  The white in the Carebear belly is Zoya Purity.  I used one coat of Seche Vite on all nails.

Last up is my personal favorite of the three and that's Crazy Daisies.  It has all of my favorite things especially neon pink and green.  I am pretty sure I had a folder that looked like this in the 9th grade.   It has everything a glitter topper loving girl like me could ever ask for.  It's described as "This polish is a clear base with a crazy mix of neon daisies, transparent hearts, pastel hex glitter, star glitter, iridescent glitter and black and white triangles!"  Whew!  What's not to love???  For this manicure I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on my index and ring fingers and a base of Hit Polish Scotland the Brave on my middle and pinkie.  I then layered one coat of Laquerlicious neon glitter in At the Lake before topping them all off with Crazy Daisies.  For my stamping I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Knockout Pink using Fab UR Nails plate FUN 3.

You can find these at the Laquerlicious shop here or by visiting  I highly recommend all three!
