Royal Lacquer and Vynails Review!

Provided for Review

Hello my darlings!  How are you on this rainy day?  Oh is it not raining where you’re at?  Well it’s certainly raining here.  You know what that means!  It’s time to paint my nails!  Ok so that’s not much different than any other day but let’s roll with it!  I have a fun review for ya’ll today!  I was recently approached by a new indie brand who was wanting to get her name and product out there on the blogosphere and she sent me a lovely package to review!  So we have new indies and her line of vinyl nail decals which come in a simply huge array of decorations for your digits!  Digit Decorations!  Quick someone make something and call it that because I’m on fire!

Ok before I can digress any further let me get right down to business and around here that means pretty polish!  First up we have Evergreen.

Evergreen is a green jelly based polish filled with holographic micro-glitter, holographic green hex glitters, and metallic gold square glitters!  I’m really loving the influx of true jelly polishes lately!  Because this polish is a jelly you should expect that it is extremely sheer.  These pictures show five thin coats and you can see there is still a very slight VNL in the pictures though in person the VNL was not noticeable at all.  However the squish factor on this is through the roof!!!  I’m totes digging on the squishiness of this one.

 While there is glitter in this polish it is not overwhelming or overpowering.  This is good because I did use so many coats.  There is the appearance that the glitters are curling, but I assure you those hexes are flat.  I did not even need glitter food!  If you are deadset against VNL then you could layer this over another polish but if you do so I’d recommend the dabbing method of application so that you can get the amount of glitter that you like on the nail.

Polishes Used:  Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu;  Royal Lacquer – Evergreen; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl

Next up we have Inner Rebel

Inner Rebel is a pristine white crelly based polish sprinkled with tiny hot pink, blue, and green glitters of varying shape as well as a gold holographic flecks throughout.  This polish is so delicate and pretty!  I think I’m starting to see a trend of dainty delicate crelly-based glitter polishes and I’m a fan!

Application was easy breezy on this one – after the first coat I was definitely expecting to need to do three or four coats but this is actually two coats NO undies!  This one did not need glitter food either and a nice shiny topcoat was all that was needed to smooth everything out!

Last but definitely not least was my favorite polish of the three!  Allow me to introduce Pearlie!

*Swoon*  Yes that is a stunning slightly blackened purple polish right there!  What my camera could not capture is the AMAZING unique quality that it has.  This purple crelly-based polish is PACKED with itty bitty tiny magenta micro-glitter and teensie tiny holographic aqua flecks.  This makes it seem like the polish is glowing from the inside.  It is so great!

I’ll be honest – after the first coat I was slightly worried that it was going to take several coats to reach opacity.  Readers, I was wrong!!  The second coat brought the opacity and leveled out everything!  This one does dry to a slightly matte finish and the teensie tiny glitters leave it with a somewhat gritty feel.  Because of that and that cute little owl I did use glitter food to give it a glass smooth surface!  Let’s talk about that owl!  Isn’t it adorable?  That my beloved readers is one of the Vynails decals!  Super easy to apply – literally I grabbed a pair of tweezers, peeled it off the sheet, poked out the eyes and belly with a toothpick, and slapped it on the nail!  Easy peasy!  You can also use many of the designs that they have (there are scads of designs) as stencils by placing the negative space on the nail and painting over it then removing it before the polish dries to ensure a clean line.  I foresee tons of manis in my future featuring cute little decals!

  1. I love Vynails! I have so many and I’m pretty sure that almost every mani I do I use a decal or stencil. I’m also becoming a huge fan of Royal Lacquer polishes. I have 4 or 5 and love them all! Caicos, blue turquoise holo jelly, is my favorite! Great review!

    • Thank you for reading! I’m always excited to try new brands and I can easily see myself becoming crazy addicted to the Vynails!
