Liquid Lacquer Review

Hi everyone!  So before I get to the polish pictures I have a bit of a story for you.  Grab your favorite beverage and get comfy, here we go.  Liquid Lacquer offers a blogger package.  The way it works is for $20+shipping you get two pick out two polishes and she picks out two more and sends them to you for review.  I thought that was a cool way to get bloggers to review your polishes so I went ahead and filled out the form and was given the okay to order.  I picked out two polishes and submitted my order on August 9th.  At the same time LL was having a sale so I placed a separate order for two other polishes.  Shipping time for LL is 5-7 days business days.  At the end of that time frame I got a shipping notice then a couple of days later I got an email saying my shipping dc had been cancelled.  LL said on their facebook page that something had happened with paypal and she would fix it and get the polishes sent within a few days.  Some time goes by and I finally got a new dc.  After several days my dc had not updated past shipping info received.  I contacted LL and she asked me to give it a few more days.  Nothing ever happened so I was told the package would be resent and got yet another dc.  This was on a Thursday and by the following Monday it still hadn't updated past shipping info received.  My package finally moved and I received it a month after my initial order, on either Sept 10 or 11.  I was so relieved to have finally received it so I ripped into it at the bus stop waiting for my boys.  The two polishes I ordered separately were in there but the two I selected for the blogger package were not.  I did get some other great polishes to review but was a little miffed that after waiting that long I didn't get the two I originally picked for the review package.  So I contacted LL again and she told me that she had a problem with the form and was waiting on bottles but would send out the two polishes when she got them.  As of now I still don't have the original two I picked out.  Now if I hadn't paid for the blogger package I would just review whatever I was sent but since I paid for it I believe I should get the half that I was allowed to pick out.

So if you made it that far thank you so much!  With all that being said I honestly really like the polishes I've tried so far.  I'm going to show you three today and then I'll do another three in my next review.  I'm going to start with Tea For One, a cranberry holo.  The formula on this was amazing!!  Two coats and it was perfect.  The polish stayed were I put it, no running, pooling or dragging.

Next up is Ladie Eve, a soft gray jelly with different sizes of bright pink glitter and some lighter pink glitter.  I layered two coats of Ladie Eve over Zoya Carey.  I got plenty of glitter with each coat.

Lastly for today I have Too Late To Turn Back, a teal/turquoise that is just a bit frosty.  This polish was a bit harder to apply.  It took three coats to be opaque and it left a few brush strokes.  This was a bit thick.  It was almost like the base was meant to suspend glitters so it was on the thicker side.  That said, it is a pretty color.

So there you have it.  A super long story and some pretty, pretty polishes.  You can purchase Liquid Lacquer polishes here and can find LL on facebook here.  I really do like these polishes.  The quality is good.  Based on that I would like to give Liquid Lacquer another shot.  Once I have the other polishes I ordered I may consider placing another order.  If I do I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.  I hope you all have a great night.

Until next time...

*I purchased these polishes at a special blogger price.  All opinions are 100% mine.*

  1. I would give them a few extra shots because the polishes are Zeppelin themed <3<3<3<3 Even so, I do hope you get what you originally asked for. Tea For One is gorgeous.

  2. I also got Tea For One in the sale, but I haven't tried it yet. And yeah...that order took forEVer to make it to me. I purchased Ladie Eve during a previous sale and when I got it, the glitter was sinking. LL send everybody who had ordered those polishes an email saying her suspension base supplier had changed the formula, and we all got a brand new bottle. So I think you will definitely get your original package because she's got good customer service. And Too Late to Turn Back looks gorgeous on you!

  5. I've had problems with the tracking too. I order from LL a LOT (whoops), and it seems like her post office just doesn't scan stuff in. It's so odd.
