Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Duckie

This is going to be post 3 of 4 today, I think! So many pictures, not enough blogging!

I have an indie polish to showcase today, Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Duckie. I remember watching Pretty in Pink when I was 15 and loving that era (I'm a 90's baby) that I never got to really live through, except through John Hughes' movies! So glad I get to see it through nail polish now though, with Duckie! It's a gorgeous mint green jelly with corresponding green glitter. I think these are my favorite types of indie polishes, because they have a delicate quality to them that glitter-packed indie polishes don't have, and they are much easier to remove! They are still striking, soft, and complex all at the same time!

Duckie is one of my favorite jelly glitters that I have from custom crafted nail lacquers (trying to get out of the habit of saying indie polishes, because I know some sellers don't like being called that). The gold glitter gives the polish sparkle, but doesn't go overboard. It wasn't hard to distribute the glitter evenly, I just had to shake the bottle a little bit before applying each coat because the glitter would sink to the bottom. It had so much depth to it because the glitter pieces were suspended between each layers, making a natural jelly sandwich. It's best to let each layer dry before adding another so the glitter pieces don't get moved when you add another coat.

I'm amassing a scary amount in a very short time, so prepare for my pics to come soon! I only have one other Nostalgic Nail Lacquer polish, Rio, which I'll showcase soon!

I can't wait to get the other polishes from the Bizarre Teenage Love Triangle collection Nostalgic Nail Lacquer has - the whole collection is made up of glitters in a jelly base (not to mention amazing names! The My So-Called Life ones are calling my name!). You can get them here, but Erin (the creator) is currently sold out of everything. You can get updates from her blog about restocks and how to get her polishes! Happy hunting!
