Caged Bird Lacquers

Hi friends! I am reviewing some polishes today from a new-to-me indie brand called Caged Bird Nail Lacquer. The owner describes her polish as "a variety of both handmade from scratch nail lacquers and custom blended nail lacquers using craft and cosmetic grade glitters with existing polishes". 

This is Delicata, a pretty girly pink jelly with lots of matte white glitter in all different sizes. This is an adorable polish but the glitter sinks in the base a lot. I had to tip and roll the bottle every time I went to dip my brush so I could pick up some pieces. I do really like the overall look though. Maybe it just needs a bit of tweaking formula wise. This is three coats. If I wear it again I might layer it over a solid base color.

Faerie Carnival is an array of satin pastel colored hex glitters in a clear base with a sprinkle of holo microglitter. I love this because it's really unique to my collection. This is three coats over LVX Ecru, a nude crème. I wish I was better at picking layering colors, I think it would've looked better on another base color.

You can buy Caged Bird nail lacquers on their Etsy store for $10 for a full size. Keep up with them on their Facebook page. What do you think of these?
