Wingin' It Lacquers

I'm backkkkkkkk for good now. I came home on Wednesday, and I think I'm resettled in haha. So I can play catchup on bloggy goodness! Today I'm reviewing the 2nd half of the Wingin' It Lacquers polishes. If you missed Part I, you can catch up here. :]


ONWARDDDDD!
I think did a good job capturing these polishes with these macro shots:

      

Same warning for these polishes as in my previous post:

I'd like to make a note before you read my review: Crystal mentioned her note to me that she likes her polishes fairly thick, and that most people would prefer to add thinner over buying a thinner polish. She mentioned she would also be adding this disclaimer in her shop so consumers are aware before purchasing the polishes.

I personally am not a fan of thicker polishes, especially if I'm layering over a color (it tends to drag the color along with it making it look wrinkled). However, I did not add thinner to these polishes when I swatched them.

This one was the one I was most excited for, I FREAKIN LOVE iridescent glitter. It makes me all giddy and excited! Mermaid Scales and Peacock Tales is a black jelly with different sizes of iridescent hex and squares that flash green/blue/purple/yellow-gold-ish.

I did 2 coats of Mermaid Scales and Peacock Tales, no undies. I found this to be the thickest polish I was sent to review. While the others were manageable, I found this one to be quite tricky to apply. Without adding thinner, short brush strokes were key. Due to its thickness it did take a little bit to dry since it is a jelly polish, something to keep in mind while layering.

I'm not a huge pink person, but I do find myself enjoying pinks and browns together. That's exactly what Rock-n-Roll Cowgirl is! It is a mixture of different sizes of pink, brown and gold hexes.

I did 2 coats of Rock-n-Roll Cowgirl over Zoya Sweet. I didn't have any application issues and I found it dried in pretty good time. No complaints from me :]

This polish is a lot of fun, she really nailed this black jelly polish! Who's the Boss is a black jelly with silver glitter in stars, micro, hexes and small bar. There's a little holo silver thrown in there which gives it a nice pop! I always find with black jelly polishes I order/review I have a problem of colors getting drowned out by the black base. This one does a good job of being a great black jelly while letting all the silver pop against the base color!

I did 2 coats of Who's the Boss with no undies. This one was also manageable to apply with no issues and I didn't have to fish for stars. I allowed, and would recommend, drying time to be allowed between coats for a faster dry time and to avoid slippage since it is a jelly polish.

Liquid silver is chocked full of different sizes of hex, square and bar silver and holographic silver glitter in a clear base. This polish shines bright and the holo silver glitter really makes this awesome!

I did 2 coats of Liquid Silver over a black creme polish. I honestly think I would of preferred 1 coat over a color versus 2. There was a lot more glitter in 1 coat than I perceived haha. I think 2+ does pretty well on its own, with no undies, if you're looking for total bling! This polish was probably the thinnest formula, a consistency I'm familiar with. It applied well, and dried in good time. No problems with this bling polish!

This wasn't my favorite, I'm not a fan of pink or shaped glitter :P But, that's just me haha. Aside from the flower shaped glitter, I did enjoy the glitter mix! In this light pink jelly polish you can find jelly, aqua blue, light blue, pink, purple, and yellow hexes of different sizes. In addition, there are some pink flower glitters in the mix.

I did 2 coats of Spring Fling, which actually surprised me! I thought it was going to be more sheer. Application was great, no issues, I didn't have to fish for the flowers, and with time in between coats, it dried in good time :]

So there you have it! Those are the last of the Wingin' It Lacquers I have to review for you for now :] If you missed Part 1, you can find it here!
