Spam-a-Thon Thursday: NerdLacquer Swatches
As I’m slowly becoming more and more engulfed by nail polish, I’ve realized that I have WAY too many polishes that I haven’t swatched yet. In order to help circumvent being featured on an episode of Hoarders I’ve decided to start “Spam-a-Thon Thursdays” so I can just swatch a crap-ton of polishes and share them all with you in a lump post. Because I care. And because my roommates and boyfriend are starting to give me “the look”. 😉
Strangely enough we’re going to start with polishes that I actually don’t own, haha! I have quite a few NerdLacquers in my collection, but these bad boys I’m showing today were kindly lent to me by one of my besties (us quirky nerdfolk have to stick together). I am proud to say that I take total responsibility for turning my pal Amanda (not to be confused with the Amanda who creates NerdLacquer polishes) into a fellow lacquerhead, and every time I look at her now beautifully maintained cuticles a tear comes to my eye. 😛 She has a TON of NerdLacquer polishes that she let me borrow so I could swatch them all for you guys, so thank you Amanda!! ^_^
I used Sally Hansen Nail Quencher base coat and Seche Vite top coat for today’s swatches.
Cold & Calculating
A revoltingly gorgeous milk chocolate shimmer base with emerald glitter, small and medium grass green hexagonal glitter, olive microglitter, and you might also notice some large chunks of silvery white.
Event Horizon – LOVE AND NEED. This one was a favorite of mine. For one, Event Horizon is one of my all-time favorite movies. And two, this is such a dense gorgeous jelly! Blackened teal with multi colored glitter and holo glitter galore. This is 2 coats! I honestly didn’t want to give this one back to Amanda. ;-P
Exterminate – another favorite of mine. This polish was actually the one that started my NerdLacquer love. I stumbled upon it on her Etsy page and I KNEW I needed it. Even though I still don’t own it, lol. I did end up getting this one in a mini bottle for Amanda as part of her Christmas present last year since she’s a giant Dr. Who fan, and that’s when her NerdLacquer obsession began as well. WELCOME! 😉 This is 3 coats.
Oi, Spaceman series. A deep Dalekanium blackened-bronze brown with small black and gold glitter, large golden hex glitter, and small and medium light blue hex glitter.
I Think You Call Me… Sexy
It’s Just A Flesh Wound
It’s Just A Flesh Wound – love the name for this one, I LOVE Monty Python & The Holy Grail. This one is a black jelly base filled with fine shimmer that’s complimented by red, white, and gold glitter. 2 coats.
Hope you all enjoyed my spam post. I kinda feel like “I’m doing it wrong” and I was too wordy for my own spam-a-thon, but it’s hard not to be chatty when it comes to NerdLacquer! 😀
UPDATE – 5/17/11
Amanda and her lovely NerdLacquers seem to have gone MIA for the time being. I’ll keep my ears to the ground and update this and future NL posts if she resurfaces and starts selling polish again. Thank you to my readers for alerting me of this change in the comments on this post!
