New To Me Indies--brand intro and swatches (Superchic Lacquer, Lacquerlicious, and Polished for Days)

Hello! Today I have more new stuff! These are 3 polishes given to me by a friend that's not polishing so much anymore. All new to me brands! Since I only have one each of these brands I thought I'd combine them all into one little review post.

First is Superchic Lacquer "Royal Pain in the Ice" a sheer cobalt blue glittery crème. This is 3 coats plus topcoat. I'm not sure if this is meant to be a topper or just a jelly type to be layered? I felt like it was still pretty sheer at 3 coats so I stopped. I will try it next over a few different blue shades.

I'm profiling the brushes because it's an important feature to me! The brush here is flat and wide, the best kind (yay)


Look at this crazy bottle though! It's like it's triangle but then it's square! Totally unique. It looks like a superman logo to me, I'm pretty sure that's by design, and since Superman kicks all the other super hero's butts, that's a win for me!


Polished for Days "Lochness Monster" is a black jelly packed with scattered holo glitters. This is 3 coats plus topcoat. Not anything super original, but sure is pretty!!

Flat brush, check!


Lacquerlicious "Sweet September" is a gunmetal gray crème with holo glitters. The formula was AMAZING!! I want to try more of this brand if they're all like that! This is 2 coats plus topcoat.

Flat brush? Check! Indie brands know where it's at!
Do yall have any experience with any of these brands? Lacquerlicious was the frontrunner for me, even though this particular color isn't one I will probably wear year round.

Update: my friend Amy of PolishEtc.com reminded me that Lacquerlicious was rebranded last year as Polish 'M! I think this bottle I have was one of the last ones from her old line. I'm so glad I have this relic :) You can find the queen of indie knowledge on IG as @mcpolish!

  1. I don't have any SUperchic but I would like to try them. Polished for Days is great and I super duper love Laquerlicious (which was rebranded to Polish 'M by the way). Michelle has some really special polishes, you should try out some more Polish 'M shades for sure!


Like what you see? Any tips or advice? Lemme know!
