NerdLacquer "The Eye"

Hello, everyone!

Happy Friday!

Today I have a nail polish to show you that all of The Lord of the Rings fans would appreciate. 

Quite some time ago, I did a couple of posts featuring two of the three LOTR-themed polishes that Amanda, the creator of NerdLacquer, had created. I wasn't quick enough to snatch this very last one that I'm showing you today, during the last restock where I acquired the first two (those of you who are NL enthusiasts know that these go super fast every time). Well, during a surprise restock Amanda had a couple of weeks ago, I was able to get "The Eye", completing my LOTR collection and making the LOTR nerd in me very happy. See how it turned out on my skin tone in the pics below! 

"The Eye", inspired by the eye of villainous character Suaron, is a red with a hint of orange jelly containing some holographic and black glitter. I love the combination going on here, and the formula was easy to work with as well. I used two coats of the polish, followed by a coat of Gelous to smooth out the somewhat gritty texture of the glitter (available at Sally's), and my favorite quick-dry top coat. 

NerdLacquer polishes are amazing; I absolutely love the handful that I have. I honestly never know when restocks happen, as they often catch me by surprise (maybe that's what makes getting them so fun... Or stressful for some of you?). I would recommend keeping up with Amanda on google +, but if you're a part of the nail polish community anyways, you know your fellow ladies will keep you in the loop regardless! 

What do you think of this polish? Do you have any Needlacquer polishes? Are you a LOTR fan? See ya next time! :)
