Nerd Lacquer ~ It's Just a Flesh Wound Swatch
First off, I don't know how nail bloggers do it. GET SUPREMELY PERFECT PICTURES!
I took about 100 in total in light, out of light, holding stuff, up against a wall and holy hell that was a process. My other freakin hand was hurting trying to hold the camera for that long.
Hopefully these pictures aren't too horrible but I know they could be better somehow. I just have to find that trick!
The first bottle of nail polish I decided to swatch from my Nerd Lacquer group is: It's Just a Flesh Wound. Swatches of Nerd Lacquer will look slightly different with every blogger because each bottle is in a way unique being hand blended and everyone has their technique to get the glitter out. My first coat I wasn't worried about the huge hex glitters because I was going to do two more coats but the last coat I tried to make sure I had a huge piece on the brush each time.
This shade is described as: a fierce black base with small and medium black, red, and copper hexagonal glitter, plus black and charcoal microglitter and big silver hex glitter.
Next 3 pics are 3 coats, no top coat (I didn't have any!)
Then I made a trip to the drugstore for some top coaty goodness.
This is 4 coats with 2 coats clear top coat. The 4th coat was me trying to dig out more big glitter bits :)
That one has 3 coats clear. Just trying to get more detail.
It'll probably take me a week to get all the polish off but so.worth.it
