TGIF! If you celebrate Easter, happy Good Friday! Easter is my favorite holiday because it's finally Spring, you get to eat candy, eat food with family, and not have the whole ordeal of getting gifts for others (which is nice, but anxiety inducing). 

Angelyn was kind enough to include a few samples with my order, and tonight I have Purplemint For Your Thoughts and Fashion (Mg)azine which comes from the Elements of Style collection (Fashion (Mg)azine only). Neither of these are thermals, so I figured I'd show them together. I made a big mistake with Purplemint For Your Thoughts. I thought it was going to be opaque enough on its own, but I really recommend you use a base with this one. It's pretty much covered in 4 coats, but working with the glitter would be much easier with a base and you also save some polish while doing so! It's an eggplant purple jelly with circular, square and hexagonal blue, white and green glitter. It's lovely, but now you know to layer it! 

I learned my lesson for the second polish, Fashion (Mg)azine. I used Jessica Cosmetic's Sharktooth as a base which is a stark white creme and was perfect with this polish. It has a white jelly base with various pastel glitters in circle, square and hexagonal form. When I wore this, I got multiple compliments stating how Eastery it looked and I totally agree. It's just so cheerful and the glitter really stands out. Overall, I wish I didn't have to wear undies, but the glitters in these make up for that fact. Oh, and the whole science aspect of this polish has me swooning with magnesium (which burns white with flame....get it?).

You can find Doctor Lacquer on Facebook and Instagram to keep up on all the news and releases and their polish run from $8.49 to $11.99 in their store.
