Pirate Polish Radioactive & Mint Milkshake

 Don't Forget to scroll to the bottom of the page for a chance to win a bottle of Radioactive!

Today I've got a look at what for a lot of you is an unknown Indie Brand. I love finding new brands with interesting polishes and this Brand has a lot of exciting creations. I came across this brand by chance. One of my readers was upset she couldn't get the Lime Crimes shipped to her so I offered to help. Turns out she was a pleasure to interact with and she had recently launched a New Polish line. Tara has a blog of her own you can find her over at The Lacquer Tracker. After a few emails back and forth She sent me these two to review and I had her throw in an extra so I could pass it on to one lucky follower. Hah I've got amazing persuasive skills, you guys don't even know!  Anyway feast your eyes on these two beauties!!

Radioactive:
I've never been a big fan of loud and crazy in your face polishes but this one screams WEAR ME, and I can't help but obey! It's a microglitter mix of Neon Green and Neon Yellow, they are blended so well that they just create this stunningly drool worth shade of green. Radioactive is really the perfect name for it! Outside it sorta reminded me of a Tennis ball. Really Crazy color! This one takes a little time and patience to apply. I recommend several thin coats and letting the coats dry before applying the next. I don't remember how many coats it took because I stopped counting at 4. It can be layered over an opaque color but I didn't like it. I felt like it changed the color too much. I really wanted the color of the glitter to speak for itself. When you're done it will be a little thick looking but I actually liked that because it made me feel like I went and got fancy fake nails put on... hah I guess it just gave me a different experience than I'm used to. I really love love love this one. If I didn't have to swatch the other one this would be a polish I could wear for several days and not get tired of!

Mint Milkshake:
While I did like this one, I did not have the same love affair with this one as I did with Radioactive. It's a minty polish with two glitter sizes a medium and large hex glitter suspended in a milky base. The base is sheer and has to be built up. I believe I used 3 coats in the pictures below. For this one I'd recommended layering it over a white. The main reason is that each brush stroke delivers a lot of glitter and it can be hard to try to build up your base if you start having an abundance on glitter piling on top of each other. That's pretty much what happened to me. One side note about this polish is that some of the larger glitter hex did have a slight curl to them, Nothing that really poked through or that a layer or two of top coat didn't calm down. I also really think this would have been less of an issue for me had I layered this over a good base that way the glitters would have more room to lay flat on the nail instead of on top of each other. This polish makes me want a nice giant minty bowl of ice cream!

  13. Oh my - I wouldn't know where to start if I were to make my own polish. I think it would involve matte glitter, maybe with contrasting colours (like pink + green, or blue + red).

    I love this shade of radioactive green - it's so bright and cheerful :D

  41. I would create a whole Alice in Wonderland themed collection but no creams like OPI did--I'd do complex glitters with a mix of different shapes, holo glitters, holographic pigment... I'd do an entire collection based on characters and events because I LOVE Alice in Wonderland!

  42. My own custom polish would actually be glitter free. A multichrome with a green base that flashes all the colors of the rainbow. Or the perfect purple with blue, pink, green and orange shimmer.
