CDB Lacquer Review

Greetings & Nailutations,

*Blogger Package* Today I bring CDB Lacquer swatches & review!  She is opening up shop in January, but has been a huge part of the nail art community & is known for her detailed art work.  Consider this a sneak preview of some of her glitter toppers which will be available here: CDB Lacquer.  (Instagram: @CDBLACQUER)

The first glitter topper is called Kiss A Fool and it is reminiscent of St. Patrick's Day.  It is a glitter topper in a clear base with small & large neon green hexes as well as medium sized black holo hexes and the best part is that it has clovers (or clubs if you will).  In the photos below I have it over a pink base.  Leaving the polish upside down while applying my base coats made the clovers easily accessible with minimal glitter fishing.  This glitter topper is very festive.

The next glitter topper is Starberry Moonshine!  This was my absolute favorite of the three.  There is an abundance of pink stars & silver holo moons in a very light pink jelly with iridescent glitters.  I placed the glitter topper over grey and white below & topped with a matte topcoat.  The ring finger was glitter placement as it reminded me of the saying about your dreams "shoot for the moon, if you miss…land among the stars."  Aside from the cute glitter shapes and colors, what I loved about this one is that it is versatile.  I also tried it over black (no photo) and it sparkled like the night sky.

Last glitter topper is 80's Flashback, which contains yellow and green medium sized hexes, pink squares, black large hexes, silver holo circles and yellow stars.  When I placed this glitter topper over a yellow base I was hearing Madonna & Cyndi Lauper.  The 2 middle fingers below is dabbed on, the outside fingers is more of a gradient effect.

Pros: glitter filled with minimal to no glitter fishing, fun concepts and visuals on these first polishes, great distribution of glitters within the polish - none of the heavier shapes sank (stars/moons/clovers).
Cons: I can't think of any cons, with glitter toppers the main important factors are no sinking, no fishing and interesting color combinations & CDB Lacquer was able to hit on all of these with her first release.

I am looking forward to her future releases.

Happy Polishing,
