Leesha's Lacquer Before and After

*Products Given to Me in Swap

Hey guys!

I thought I'd sneak in one more post before the month of July was up!

I asked on my Facebook page earlier this week about making a post on a polish I have swatched before but that I swatched again.

I don't like to really show you guys polishes and colors that I have already shown you, because how boring is that? But I figured this one could do with a post because you can tell how much my skills have improved and my nail shape is different.

Months back I swatched this no name polish from my best buddy's brand Leesha's Lacquers. This is a super gorgeous medium-dark blue shimmer with a gorgeous purpley-pink shift. Three coats on each pic. This is the first time I swatched it.

This is the new pic. I now have a new swatch and hand position and the shift comes out a bit more here, along with the color being much brighter. They kind-of appear like two different blues.

You can tell though, that the color was still a bit hard for me to capture on camera as it is still not as crisp in the pic as I would like it to be, but I love that it shows improvement!

Any comments on my before and after on this gorgeous color? Anything I could do to improve the quality of the photo or do you guys think it is good just as it is?

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now! I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Bronze, Copper, and Grape Tips: Leesha's Lacquer Style

*Products Sent to Me in Swap

Hey guys!

Sorry for the wait, work has had me busy lately so no time to think about doing a blog post or hardly doing my nails anything worthy of a blog post.

I figured before the month is over I would just do one more blog post on my current manicure that I did last night.

In a swap I recently did with my great buddy from Leesha's Lacquer, I was sent so many of her brand's polishes. I showed you guys already some of the lovely colors that she chose for me, and now I have some more of them to show you.

These colors are more darker, shimmery, neutral compared to the last ones that were more upbeat and glitter filled.

The color that is on my thumb (not pictured) and ring finger is called Nosy Be Chameleon. This color is a coppery-bronze colored filled with tons of teal shimmer throughout. I did two coats of it with topcoat.

On my ring finger is an unnamed polish. This one is a dark grape filled with subtle shimmer. I did three coats with topcoat. 

Lastly, on my pointer and pinky fingers, this one is another one of a kind polish. It is a burnt red filled with tons of holographic shimmer. I did three coats with topcoat.

It has been so hot here lately, anytime I paint my nails the polish bubbles up a bit, so excuse that. While I usually go for more brighter colors and glitter filled types, these are still very pretty and switch things up a bit for me!

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now! I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Leesha's Lacquer: One of A Kind Polishes

*Products either purchased by me or sent to me

Hey guys!

I am back today to show you some more polishes from my favorite indie maker and best polish/swap buddy, Leesha's Lacquers.

Today I have four lovely polishes that she made specially for yours truly. I purchased this grab bag from her Etsy that included five full size polishes that were random/surprise. She knows me well and knows my taste in polishes, and we are great buddies, so she wanted my polishes to be special and to my tastes.

I decided to take all of the polishes of hers she has sent me in the last two packages I have received from her and swatch them as I haven't yet. I also decided to break them up and kinda swatch them in groups according to the finishes, so these ones are all of the glitters from her I haven't shown you guys yet.

Here is a preview of the polishes I chose to show you guys today!

The first one that I have to show you has no name. All of these polishes just say on the bottom "One of a Kind". This one is a glitter topper filled with holo large glitter and pink and sliver holo-ish micro glitter in a clear base. I did three coats by itself.

Next up, this one is one of my favorites. This is a glitter topper filled with dark purple small glitter, silver micro glitter, and large silver holo glitter, with a clear base. I did three coats by itself.

Next up, this one is another glitter topper. This one is filled with large, small, and micro silver holo glitter in a clear base. I did three coats by itself. This one builds up decently by itself.

Last up, this one is again a glitter topper. This one is filled with color. It is made up of large purple glitter, small purple glitter, and silvery-yellow small glitter in a clear base. I did three coats by itself.

All four of the polishes applied fantastically. None of them really needed any cleanup as well, maybe just a pick off of one piece of glitter here and there. As always, she does glitters so well and of course I will always recommend her polishes to anyone who has yet to try any. You will definitely not at all be disappointed. Just look up Leesha's Lacquers on Etsy and tell her I sent you!

Well, that's all I have to share with you guys for now. I will talk to you all later, bye!
