Guest Blogger for August - Nerd4Nails

Our next lovely blogger is Kayle from Nerd4Nails, enjoy all <3 x
Hi everyone! Fancy seeing you here ;-) This is Kayle, nail art enthusiast from the instagram account @nerd4nails and the blog  
Today I get to share something pretty special with you guys and dolls, swatches for 3 Limited Edition Polishes from the indie brand Lumina Lacquer!
If you aren't familiar with Lumina Lacquer yet, she's the queen of glitter bombs. Her polishes are bright and gorgeous with the best glitter formula I've encountered. Her stock tends to sell out fast, and most of her polishes are LE's, so if you want them, you've got to grab them fast!
The first polish I have for you is Max is the New Black, inspired by Max from the hilarious show 2 Broke Girls.
When I first got this polish, I thought it was blue with silver sparkles, but when it applied I was excited to find it was actually full of tiny iridescent squares. The formula was a dream, and for those with shorter nails, you can probably get away with 1 coat to full opacity. I needed two to cover up my VNL. The simple nail art on the ring finger is a copy of the necklace that Max wears on the show.
The next polish I have to show you is Get Lucky. I'm sure I'm not the only person who has spent my entire summer humming this song!
This is a sparkly glitter bomb full of tiny holographic glitter, small and medium hex in silver, matte red and black, large blue hex, and large holo silver circles. The is a super dense glitter that was perfect for gradient and would look amazing over a holo polish! I used one coat with some dabbing for the gradient (over Max is the New Black) and 3 coats alone on my ring finger. It was actually really hard to photograph because of how sparkly it was!
Last but not least is my personal favourite, Pinball Wizard. If there were a nail polish dictionary, a photo of this would be under ''Glitter Bomb''
This baby is packed with matte glitter of every shape you can imagine. Hearts, Hex, Squares, Circles, Stars, Moons, and Diamonds in every size and color packed into a perfect formula. Each nail is ONE coat of this beauty, dabbed on. It would be impossible to get one of every glitter onto a single nail, and I have pretty long nails! I put this over a gradient of Zoya Trixie and Storm, and on the ring finger I created a little pinball machine out of the glitter in the polish!
Which one is your favourite from the upcoming collection? You can get updates about releases and special offers from the website! Bottle shots all from @Luminalacquer on Instagram.
