Hi everyone! Today’s manicure comes to us from Dreamland Lacquer. You can find her polishes HERE if you would like to check them out. This is a reformulation of a classic polish from when this brand had another name, Smitten Polish. I am not affiliated with Dreamland, just a fan.
On a side note, if you saw yesterday’s post where I was talking about the “Unicorn Pee” pigment, Dreamland has two polishes for sale, as of my writing this post,that have that same pigment in them. So if you liked Max Factor Fantasy Fire and was sad it’s been discontinued, please check out the link above and look at You Saucy Minx and A Wedding Dress That Isn’t Bright Turquoise. They both have that same color shifting pigment in them.
Dreamland Lacquer Naiad Reborn is described by the maker as, “light blue crelly with a variety of purple shimmers”. I see a dusty cornflower type blue with purple contrasting shimmer. The shimmer is not really evident indoors in low lights, but really shines in the sun or brighter lights. I love a polish with contrasting shimmer!
The formula was on the thick side and I would not call it a crelly but more of a creme in my opinion. It was odd because the polish was not streaky, but the brush was leaving behind brush stroke marks as I painted. They all self leveled off beautifully and disappeared as it dried down though, so it didn’t hurt anything. The brush was perfect too, so I’m not sure what caused it. I do prefer a thicker formula, but I will probably add some nail polish thinner before I put the bottle away so it gets a little thinner for next time. I was painting late at night in my office with horrible lighting, so I wasn’t sure if two coats had covered all the nail line, so I did a third coat to be safe. I think two coats would be plenty though. I really like this one a lot! It’s a really pretty blue shade so even without the shimmer showing, it’s still a gorgeous polish.
