Nail Lacquer UK Sticks and Stones Blue


Not too long ago, AJ from Nail Lacquer UK got in touch to see if I'd be interested in trying out a few of her polishes and I of course jumped at the chance to review some Indies from a UK based maker. There are so many amazing glitters in her store that it took me a while to decide on just a few but I asked if I could try Sticks and Stones Blue and Dog Days. I'm so happy to see a UK indie maker with such an amazing selection. The best part is that I can buy up as many bottles as I want without insane shipping or import costs! 
Another sweet little detail I want to mention is that each polish comes with a little handmade charm themed to suit the polish. You can either keep these round the bottle or clip them on to a charm bracelet (or anywhere else you want to wear them) with the lobster clasp. I'm currently rocking on one my purse! How's that for a loving touch?

Today I have a swatch of Sticks and Stones Blue to share. This polish is a classic black and white, bar and hex glitter with some lavender and blue additions with extra squares. There's a really good amount of glitter in the bottle - I only had to use one coat for this swatch. I'm really impressed with this polish and I really can't wait to try Dog Days too. Nail Lacquer UK polishes can be purchased in AJ's Etsy store. Mini bottles are £3.50 and the full sizes range from £5.50-£7.50.



My base colour is NYC Raindrop and I used one coat of Nail Lacquer UK Sticks and Stones Blue.
For the accent nails I use striping tape to mark off some racing stripes, then painted Barry M Matt White straight down the middle and NYC Lavender Cupcake at the sides. I added a pastel purple stud from Born Pretty Store.

It's all topped off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Dries Instantly.

  8. Gorgeous mani, your stripes are so perfect and that polish is fantastic. Great to hear of more & more UK indie brands, hopefully the days of paying extortionate shipping to get unique polishes are coming to an end!
