I can't remember how I came across The Lady Varnishes; I must have seen it on Facebook or in a blog post, but either way the Etsy store really captured my imagination (and my wallet).
Each polish is inspired by a film, book or television show so they will no doubt be must haves for fans of the original material.
Back in March I ordered 12 bottles of art and now I'm finally showing them to you! I've broken the swatches in to two posts because that's a lot of photos.
Here is part one:
The Lady Varnishes That's Close Enough
The Lady Varnishes Frozen In Carbonite
The Lady Varnishes It's Not Fair
The Lady Varnishes Lissa Anne
The Lady Varnishes Silly Butterfly
It's not the worst thing to have happen with a polish, but it does slow down the application. Once I thinned them they were still pretty thick and very opaque so two coats was truly enough for full coverage. But if you do have issues with thick formulations do not buy these... that's all I'll say.
The dry time is fantastic though, none of the issues thick formulas usually have and I didn't have any issues with air bubbles etc.
All of The Lady Varnishes' polishes can come in a variety of scents. I'm not a fan so I chose to have all of mine unscented but for those of you who like a whiff to your polish - go crazy!
Every bottle comes with a charm too and every order with a necklace chain for you to wear the charms on. Very cutesy - but again, not my thing. Still for $8.50/bottle it's a good deal.
The Lady Varnishes lacquers are available on Etsy
