Hi everyone! I’m back with the next installment of the Zodiac Series from Geekish Glitter Lacquer. This series has a dedicated polish for each Zodiac sign and a different glow in the dark (GITD) topper for each of the four corresponding Elements. Libra season is upon us and with it comes the element of Air.
The polishes are only available during the month of the Zodiac it’s attached to. So these two will only be available from September 23 through October 22. However, you will see the GITD topper during all the months that are Air elements.
You can check out Geekish Glitter Lacquer HERE. These polishes were sent to me to swatch and give an honest review.
The Scales is inspired by the Zodiac sign Libra. If your birthday falls between September 23 and October 22 you are a Libra. Libras are ruled by the Air element. Their strengths include being fair minded, cooperative, creative, balanced and social. Their weaknesses include being indecisive, unreliable, stubborn and holding onto grudges.
Lexi came up with two polishes for the month of Libra, The Scales and Air. I have both of these to show you today. These two will only be available for sale for the month of the Zodiac sign. So for Libra you can purchase these polishes from September 23 through October 22 at geekishglitterlacquer.bigcartel.com.
The Scales is described as, “a light blue base with a touch of holo and silver holo micro shreds”. I wrote that it was a sky blue base with holo shred glitter and holo micro glitter. The holo shreds take on a white/iridescent look when they are not showing off the holo rainbow. This is not a blingy, in your face holo, but a much more subdued look. It is really pretty and it had a great formula! This stays right where you paint it, there is no running or pooling into the cuticles. I really like the brush, it’s a good size and is not stiff. It has a smooth first coat, I didn’t have any streaks. I used 2 coats of polish with just 1 coat of glossy topcoat. Love it!

This polish will be available starting Sunday, September 23, 2018 at GeekishGlitterLacquer.bigcartel.com.
It will cost $9.
Air is described as a white glow in the dark topper. This looks cloudy in the bottle, but it didn’t seem to affect the base color of The Scales when I put it over it. This one didn’t seem quite as glowy as the other 3 GITD toppers Lexi has made for the other element signs. Well, it glows really well it just didn’t have the staying power that I remember last months Earth topper having.
It goes on smooth and easy. I started with 2 coats over The Scales (the first two photos) then did 1 coat over a white creme base. The white base color did seem to help the glow. The lighter base color you can use the better effect you seem to get. Also remember to shake these really well before applying to get all that gitd pigment mixed up.
This will be available for sale during any Zodiac sign that is an Air sign. So for Libra that starts on September 23, 2018 at GeekishGlitterLacquer.bigcartel.com.
It will cost $7.
