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
I'm just some 27 yr old girlie in Canadaland, dodging polar bears and wild geese and junk, who is addicted to reading and who feels the need to share my <3 for makeup!
