Nerd Lacquer - Carbon Allotrope

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday ;0).

I have a Nerd Lacquer polish to share today!  Now I know there has been much controversy and hearbreak over this brand.  The store has been closed for some time and many are wondering whether it will reopen.  I prefer to not get involved with the drama.  I just hope that all is well with Amanda and we will see more beauties from her soon.

So why am I sharing a polish that isn't currently available you ask.  Because I took these pics a long time ago and forgot to share it then.  I hope you'll still appreciate the post.

Carbon Allotrope is a sheer jelly base with medium silver hex glitter, small silver glitter, and silver and white microglitter.  The base has a bit of a cream tint to it.  I think it's due to the white microglitter.  This is definitely a layering polish, but here you'll see it on its own.  I used three coats of Carbon Allotrope with no base or top coat.

This is a really unique glitter polish and I like it a lot.  I'm looking forward to layering it and trying different combos.

What do you guys think of Carbon Allotrope?

  3. I love the way it layers up--nice and glimmery without looking caked on! Hoping we see more Nerd Lacquer soon. :)

  5. That's really pretty! I don't have any Nerd Lacquers but maybe that will change if the shop ever comes back.

  8. This reminds me of a more packed version of the glitter OPI from the ballet collection (Pirouette something?). This would be so gorgeous over a pastel pink!

  9. Such a nice glitter! I think it would look good over anything. But I do like it alone as well. Very girly!
