Firecracker Lacquer: Winter Wonder

Press Sample

Today I have a new indie brand to share with you: Firecracker Lacquer. Isn't that name the best? I had gotten to know the maker Kendahl, who also blogs over at The Stepmom Chronicles, just before she debuted her line in July. She recently sent me a couple pretties from her new Winter Wonder Collection to share with you guys!

This is Jolly Holly, a dark green jelly with tiny red glitters and teeny white stars. I used three thin coats, making sure to layer in the stars between each coat. The formula was really easy to work with. This is a very dark jelly and I lose some of the red glitters depending on the light, I just adore the white stars though!. I also like that I can get this opaque enough to avoid VNL. I added a lil bow from Daily Charme.

Drop The Ball is a silver mircoglitter in a clear base. I chose to layer one coat over Essie Mint Candy Apple, which you can see has weirdly turned blue. I've seen a few mainstream polishes this shade have this problem, but dang, it's still pretty! I didn't have to fuss with this glitter, just slapped it on and it distributed perfectly. I love it so much over this color and can't wait to try a gradient with it.

The Winter Wonder collection released last Friday and is available now! Check out some of Kendahl's other creations while you are there. I have all of the Captivating Creatures polishes and they are great! I have my eye on some of the other Winter Wonder polishes, too. She also has a really nice selection of studs, I love the teeny triangles I purchased from her earlier this year. Let me know what you think about this new indie!
