A Few Picks from Nostalgic Lacquer

Nostalgic Lacquer is the brand I will be featuring today, one of my top indie brands. They are a line of 3-free nail lacquers inspired by things from the creator's past, such as: movies, music, cartoons, iconic figures, or even toys from the 80′s. I am in love with taking ideas and aspects of the past and twisting them until you get something new. Here are a few picks from their collection of polishes.

Bitchcraft is part of NL's Halloween collection, a creepy pea-soupy green jelly with various shapes and sizes of glitters in purple, magenta, blue and black. It's hands down the best Halloween polish I've seen this year! I've never seen a glitter with a base this outrageous, I love it. This is three coats. It has a tinge of visible nail line but the glitter and tint of the base distracts enough that you can hardly tell. This is such a bad ass polish!

This is The Basketcase from the Saturday Detention collection of lacquers, inspired by the iconic 80's classic, The Breakfast Club. TBC is one of my absolute all time favorite movies! I am thrilled to see it as a polish collection inspiration. This girl is a mixture of gunmetal, pink, and burgundy glitters suspended in a clear base. I adore this polish, the combo of pink and grey just really works together and the different sizes and shades of the mix create awesome depth. This is two coats over China Glaze Immortal.

Like Lovin' the Dead is another polish from Nostalgic's Halloween offerings. It is a bright yet soft green creme with various shapes and sizes of white, black and green glitters. I really like this shade and it's unlike any other I have. The small darker metallic green glitters accent the soft green of the base and make it pop even more. Very Halloween apropos. This is three coats.

Rayanne is a part of the My So-Called Lacquer collection of jelly based glitter bomb lacquers, inspired by the 90's teen drama, My So-Called Life. She is a purple based jelly with bright purple, lavender, burgundy, gunmetal, and pink glitters in various shapes and sizes. Awesome! I love how it has so many layers and bits to look at. I layered two coats of the glitter over Cult Nails Nevermore.

Nostalgic Lacquer is sold on their website and their Etsy store for $9.75 each. Have you tried any of their products? What do you think of these? They have a new "New Wave" collection of 80's song inspired polishes out right now and I just know I'll have to try them! Have a safe and happy weekend, and don't get too cold!
