Indies: Elixir Lacquers, Pretty & Polished, and Jaybird swatches

Elixir Lacquers Tricky. Three coats. I had longer than normal drying time with this one. I got a chip on my thumb only three hours after I put this on (I usually get three to four days wear with most polishes). I'm not sure if this polish just didn't like my basecoat or topcoat or what. I will have to to try something different when I wear this again. Other than that, I really love this color.

Nicole by OPI Brilliant Idea over Tricky. Two coats.

Nails Inc Piccadilly Arcade over it all. One coat with a light hand. I did not expect this one to be so opaque. I bet I can get this one opaque in two coats on its own.

Finger Paints Evergreen Dream. Two coats.

Elixir Lacquers Kind of Connery over Evergreen Dream. One coat.

Kind of Connery over a blue jelly with green/blue glitter franken a friend made me which can be seen here. One coat.

Elixir Lacquers Calypso. Two coats over black.

Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker. Three coats. I am disappointed with this one. I was expecting this to be a jelly. The red square glitter has all sunk to the bottom and are impossible to get out. I had the bottle upside down for a while before applying and still did not get any. The picture below was the one showing on the Etsy listing. She really should update the picture with one that is accurate.

Pretty & Polished Flow over Orly Rock Solid. One coat with some touch ups. The large hex glitters in this one curl, so buyers beware. Original post here.

Pretty & Polished Flow over China Glaze No Way Jose. Two coats. Original post here.

Pretty & Polished Hustle over Claire's Blast Off. One coat. Original post here.

Jaybird Junk Basket. Three coats. I never would have thought pink would look good with green glitter but I really love how this looks! Even Mr. Janimal liked this one and he dislikes pinks.

Savvy Purple Potion and Pink Fairy over Junk Basket. One coat of each.

Jaybird Thing 2. Three coats.
