Birthday Polish: Vivid Lacquer Remnants of Summer

Today I had a flash giveaway on my Facebook page.  If you're not a fan of my page, head on over there just in case I decide to do it again!  Also, we're only 14 away from a seriously awesome giveaway.  I hate harping on it all the time, but I really want to give you guys free stuff!  I'd hate to have to keep such an awesome cool prize all for myself (hah!).

Remember how I mentioned before that I got 3 indie makers to make me polish specially for my 30th birthday?  Well, today I will show you polish number two, Remnants of Summer by Vivid Lacquer.

I asked Anni for a jelly in either pink, blue, or teal, and she went with teal.  This little beauty is a teal jelly with blue shimmer and red, blue, yellow, and silver shards.

It applied a little thickly, so I added a little thinner and it was perfect.  The shards came out easily and spread without any manipulation.  As you can see, it's really sheer.  I used four coats, but I would definitely layer it over undies next time.  

Here's a closeup so you can see the blue shimmer and shards a little better.

I apologize for the bubbles.  I have a problem with thick application and impatience.  One of these days I'll get it right!

Anni was a doll to work with.  She communicated with me very well to make sure I got the perfect polish.  I would definitely go to her again for a custom.  If you're in the market for one, you should seriously contact her!  Her Etsy shop can be found here, and you can follow her on her Facebook page for news and announcements.  Anni also sells some pretty b.a. stamping plates that I'm hoping to pick up at some point in the near future.  She is tentatively expecting to release her Halloween collection on the 24th, so definitely keep your eyes peeled!!

Do you like shards in your polish?  Do you mind visible nail line?


  1. Love this polish it is so unique

    1. I know! I can tell that Anni really likes using shreds in her polishes. It's such a different style from every other indie maker out there. I kinda like it!
