Firecracker Lacquer : Meet Your Maker collection

Today I'm introducing you to Firecracker Lacquer; a new brand, created by my lovely friend Kendahl, that launched their first collection on July 1st. The "Meet Your Maker" collection is intended to introduce you to Kendahl and all of the things that she loves.

When I receive samples from a new brand I hope that they will be great (especially when they come from a friend) but I honestly never thought that one of them would end up being one of my favourite polishes ever. It's true. I kid you not. You'll have to wait until the end of the post to find out which one captured my heart.

Formula wise, they were all good - they all flowed well and I didn't have any danger of flooded cuticles. The jellies are on the sheer side and, if you are like me and don't like visible nail line, you'll need to build them up more - I used three coats for all jellies but Ocean's Deep could take anywhere from three to four coats depending on the look you want. I used two coats of Frosting, Your Mom Thought I Was Big Enough, and Starry Sky but, with Starry Sky, I did have to dig a bit for the small stars.

One note about my pics - I recently got a macro lens for my phone (the Easy-Macro) and I am still very much learning.

Girl Fight
"[A] magenta jelly with glitter that shifts from pink to purple, as well as a hint of holo
in the right light. I love watching fighting, and this color reminds me of a bruise, if bruises were
more girly."

Punked
[A] black jelly with varying sizes of hexes in silver, charcoal, pink, purple, and holo. This
polish is a tribute to a very important kid in my life, who we like to call Punk.

Starry Sky
[A] creamy blue polish with turquoise and silver glitter and little holo stars. If you
could stare into the daytime sky and see stars, this is what it would look like. I love the sky,
night or day, but both at once would be awesome!

Frosting
[A] holo topper like no other. Scattered and linear holographic pigment, plus varying
sizes of holo hexes, make this holo topper a special treat to top any polish with. Everything is
better with frosting! At least, I sure think so.

Frosting is shown over KBShimmer Low and Be Bold.

Your Mom Thought I Was Big Enough
[A]n homage to a planet that once was. It’s a multi-chrome polish, shifting through blue, purple, red, and orange. It’s also a linear holographic, with varying sizes of holo bits throughout as well. Great on its own but even better over black! I love space and everything in it, even former planets.

Your Mom Thought I Was Big Enough is shown over blue (pinky), black (ring and middle), and purple (index).

Ocean's Deep
[A] blackened teal jelly with iridescent hexes. I adore the ocean and all of its gorgeous creatures, even the ones that will eat your face off.
