Hello lovelies,

today I want to show you more Cadillacquer polishes. Cadillacquer is a Switzerland indie brand and the person behind this brand is lovely Madeleine.

These look very unique to me, I don't have anything similar in my nail polish stash. You can check out review of four different shades here.

Lucy's Stash - Cadillacquer polishes

So It Begins - grey jelly base with purple shimmer, white, purple and grey glitter. This polish didn't 'stand out from the crowd' for me but once I've painted it I really like the result. The formula was easy-going..it applied nicely and dried quite fast. I've applied two thicker coats for full coverage. I needed a topcoat as it dried little bit gritty but nothing terrible.

Life's Too Short - blue-grey base with medium and dark blue glitter. Another very unusual mix that works very well together. It's all cool tones so I don't think it would go well with very tanned hands. The formula is good as with the other polishes - it applies well and two coats are enough for full coverage.

Tell It To The Frogs - blue-ish green jelly with blue shimmer and white glitter. This polish is a bit on the sheer side so I've layered it over Barielle Blue Cotton Candy which was very close to the base colour of Tell It To The Frogs. It applied easily and dried fast but I had to fish out the big white glitter.

Say The Word - greenish yellow jelly base with navy blue and silver glitter. I like this polish a lot, it somehow reminds me of Easter. The formula of the polish is thicker but ok to work with. I've applied two thicker coats. They dried fast and slightly gritty so I needed to apply topcoat.

As always, I was happy with these - formula is very good and the colours are unusual. Each bottle of Cadillacquer has 15ml and black ridged cap that makes opening the polishes easy.

You can purchase Cadillacquer polishes in Madeleine's Etsy store and they are also available at Harlow & Co. Polishes are priced between $12-14 and international shipping is available. Stay up to date at Cadillacquer Facebook page.

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're still not fed up with indie brands because I've got here another one - Cadillacquer! Most of indie brands are from US so it's not that easy to get them for folks from UK and the rest of the Europe. Well Cadillacquer is from Switzerland and the person behind this brand is lovely Madeleine. Today I will review first four shades but I have many more coming!

Have A Little Faith - mauve purple base with dark purple, silver and white glitter. Cute purple colour isn't it? It appears to be half-jelly base which gives nice effect of layered glitters. It applied well and I'm wearing two thicker coats. If I would be applying thin coats I would need three for full coverage. The polish dried fast enough and slightly gritty so I've applied topcoat.

Left Behind - grey base with green shimmer mixed with green and holographic glitter. I really like that the big green glitter is square-shaped, it makes it look unique to me. In certain angles the base shows the green shimmer very nicely otherwise the base looks grey. Formula on this one was slightly less pigmented so I've applied two thick coats to get the coverage in the pictures. It applied easily.

Now And Then - pale lavender base with purple and white glitter. There are like tiny shredded glitter particles in the mix which look really cool. They are more visible in the macro shot. This one has a very good pigmentation :) I'm wearing two regular coats which were enough for full coverage. It also dried fast but I still applied topcoat to smooth out the surface. Overall very pretty polish with good formula.

Serendipity - light blue base with magenta and purple glitter. I find this to be quite unusual colour combination. It applied easily and the pigmentation is good too. I've applied two thicker coats which caused slightly longer drying time. When the polish dried the finish was slightly gritty so I needed a topcoat.

Overall, I'm happy with these polishes. I never expect much from indies and I'm mostly pleasantly surprised. I like the unusual colour combinations and that the polish is easy to apply and is mostly opaque in two coats. I'm really looking forward to trying more Cadillacquer polishes so I hope you'll check back in for more soon ;)
