Hello readers! It's been a few days since I last posted and summer is dwindling! I head back to school in just a little over two weeks, boo! Life is about to get so much busier. But no worries, I have some fantastic nail polish related things coming up in the very near future if all goes as planned. I can't wait!

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Today, I have quite the polish to share. It's Gloss n' Sparkle Pink Cigarette.

All That Glitters Garden Party

Good afternoon, readers! We've had a couple of cool, breezy days and it is making me want fall to come so badly! I am not made for these Midwest heat waves! Anyways, the impending autumn weather got me all excited to start using my dark, vampy polishes, but since it's still summer, I had to brighten it up a bit with a glitter bomb polish! Today, I have All That Glitters Garden Party to share!

Jindie Nails Talk Nerdy to Me

Hi readers! Life has been a little hectic this week so I haven't had a chance to post! I was in a pretty crazy car accident with my boyfriend on Monday night and we are both so lucky to have very minor injuries! I'm still shaken up over it but I am very thankful to still have my life!

Anyways, I have a lovely polish from one of my favorite indie brands today - it's Jindie Nails Talk Nerdy to Me!

Good evening, readers! I may have a case of the Sunday blues but my nails are feeling rather luxurious since I'm sporting Mentality 24k Gold.

I Love NP Something About Merry

It's Christmas in July, folks. Or at least I'm going to pretend it is, because I've been wanting to wear this festive glitter ever since I got it in the middle of spring when Christmas polish is totally inappropriate. But Christmas in July IS completely acceptable, so I have I Love NP Something About Merry to share today.

Lyn B Designs Sassy Snow Pants

Hi readers! It's after midnight here so that means it's a new day and I can post another polish, right? I've been needing to sport some of my older untried indies, so today we are doing just that! This polish is Lyn B Designs Sassy Snow Pants.

Kunimitsu Nail Potions Went to Grover

Hello all! We are back in full indie force after yesterday's little detour, but we've gotta spread the love, right? I'm slightly proud of myself for not caving in and posting this yesterday because I REALLY love it and just want to share it all with the world! Today I have an awesome glitter bomb polish to share: Kunimitsu Nail Potions Went to Grover.

Color Club Eternal Beauty

Hi readers! So I know that here on Late Night Lacquer we're in the midst of an "indie"-an summer, but I've recently acquired some name brand mainstream polishes that are just WAY to pretty to not share. Maybe we will have a weekend edition so they don't feel so alone in this sea of indie love! Prize to whoever comes up with a good pun name for this special? ;)

If you follow LNL on Instagram (and if you don't, YOU SHOULD! @latenightlacquer), you may have already seen a sneak peek of today's polish: Color Club Eternal Beauty.

Nerd Lacquer Entirely Unlike Tea

Hello readers! :) Before I get into today's post, I have just a bit of housekeeping to share with you all. I spent some time sprucing up the blog a little bit last night to make it easier on the eyes, so we have a new banner and WAY less pictures crowding each page! I also figured out how to add more widgets, so if you look to your right, you might notice the new bloglovin' widget, the Facebook widget, AND the Instagram widget - oh yes, we're getting very high tech up in here.

ANYWAYS, I would LOVE for my readers to please follow Late Night Lacquer on bloglovin' since Google reader is going away at some point. In addition, like us on Facebook too and follow us on Instagram, @latenightlacquer! I'm trying to do better with social media for promoting this blog so please like and follow - the more, the merrier! I want to keep up with the awesome readers who peruse this blog. :)

Now that that's over with, I have Nerd Lacquer Entirely Unlike Tea to share with you all today!

Model City Polish MCP Thanks You!

Good evening, everyone! I have recently acquired a desire to own all the limited edition nail polishes that I can get my hands on, so that may explain why I have a special limited edition polish to share today. It's Model City Polish MCP Thanks You! This polish was released for Model City's first anniversary and only 28 were listed for sale. I happen to be lucky number 21!

Wing Dust Collections Sleepless Summer Nights

Hello, hello! Today I want to share a polish that I am completely in love with. It is one of my favorite indies ever. Not only is it perfectly named, but I think it also fits the name & theme of this blog ever so perfectly as well: Wing Dust Sleepless Summer Nights.

Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces

Hi readers! I have an amazing polish to share today. It is the ever-so-elusive Emily de Molly Cosmic Forces. I was super freaking lucky to snag this during my very first attempt at buying an Emily de Molly polish during a Llarowe restock. I refreshed the page for half an hour straight and my heart was palpitating the entire time. It was serious. But it all paid off, and both Cosmic Forces and it's equally gorgeous teal twin, Oceanic Forces, became mine!

Silly Bee's Chickadees Bring Us A Figgy Mango Cocktail

Hi readers! I have a fun indie polish to share to you today from a brand that's still quite new to me - Silly Bee's Chickadees Bring Us A Figgy Mango Cocktail. Now that's a mouthful! I had never heard of Silly Bee's polishes until I saw so many beautiful swatches of them over at Oh Three Oh Four, and I have been patiently (not really) waiting to get my fingers on them!

Model City Polish Orange Sherbert

Hello, dear readers! I'm back to swatch polish for another day, woohoo! My nails have finally grown back to the point where I feel comfortable sharing them again, so it's time to get back down to business. Yay!

It has been a long couple of weeks without blogging, and my indie stash has continued to grow and grow and grow because I am a bad kid with a nail polish addiction. And that's how I have this pretty little polish to share with you today: Model City Polish Orange Sherbert.

I'm still here!

Sorry that I haven't posted in a good week, readers! I have been busy juggling my new job plus my last couple of weeks at my other job. Not to mention that as a last laugh from my previous employer, the cash register decided that severing my three longest nails on my swatch hand would be the rightful goodbye gift. SIGH! So I am overdosing myself on Biotin and Nail Envy so these little nails will grow back to full capacity!

Give me just a couple more days here (my old job ends tomorrow!) and "indie"-an summer will be back in action! I just splurged on a ridiculous amount of indie polish so I'll have lots to swatch and share! :)

Lucky 13 Lacquer A 51st Century Guy

Hello lovelies! I've been in such better spirits lately - I put my two weeks' notice in for my job (June 11th is my last day, yay!), I have found a new job (double yay!), AND I finally found my digital camera (triple YAY)!

Also, I started a Facebook page for Late Night Lacquer, so I would love if you would like it! :)

So today, I have a fun polish to share with you - Lucky 13 Lacquer A 51st Century Guy. This was one of the first Lucky 13 polishes that caught my eye because it has heart glitter and I love heart glitter, okay?

HARE Polish The Teen Queen

Hi readers! I'm going to give you a disclaimer right now that this post is going to be picture-heavy. I have HARE Polish The Teen Queen gracing my nails today and I am sort of obsessed with this mani in the strangest possible way.

Emily de Molly Harmony

Hi readers! Today I have Emily de Molly Harmony to share with you all. I thought it was an appropriate time to share this polish, given that Emily de Molly is discontinuing quite a few of her polishes! Luckily, Harmony isn't one of them, but there's plenty of other pretties that will soon be gone forever! /sad face

Emerald & Ash Cuddle-butt

So, anyone who knows me knows that I love my dogs.


But for real, my pups are my babies. I have two - a sweet Pomeranian boy named Moose and a fiesty Shiba Inu girl named Layla. They are like my kids and I love them to bits!



So when I found out that Emerald & Ash was releasing two polishes in honor of her own puppies, I knew I HAD to snatch them up! I mean, come on - inspiration from doggies? They're polishes after my own heart! I love them both but I decided on this one, because crellies are one my weaknesses - meet Emerald & Ash Cuddle-butt!

Lucky 13 Lacquer Pumpkin King

Holiday-theme polishes. We all have them, right? I feel like all polish brands, mainstream and indie alike, do collections for every holiday. And how can you not love the festiveness?! But alas, what do you do with said polishes when the holidays are over? Must you wait a whole year to paint your nails with festive pretties?! The answer is NO! We CAN incorporate holiday-themed polishes into everyday, non-holiday manicures!

And today, I have Lucky 13 Lacquer Pumpkin King to do just that with. Pumpkin King? But... it's May! PUMPKINS? Damn right, we're doing pumpkins.

Jade Holographic Vermelho Surreal

Readers, I have a confession to make. Today's polish is not an indie. I know, I know - "indie"-an summer! All indies all the time! Yeah yeah yeah... BUT, I have had a rough few days and I feel very on the verge of quitting my job, so sometimes you have to put the glitter aside and bring out some rainbows. And rainbows are exactly what we are getting into today! This is Jade Holographic Vermelho Surreal, a brand from Brazil. And although it isn't an indie, I did buy it from Llarowe... so that must count for something, right?

Nail Pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-a-Dupe

I think it's safe to say that most nail polish lovers know about the elusive Clarins 230 polish, aka "Unicorn Pee." It's pretty much one of the most ridiculously awesome polishes in the world. It's also ridiculously expensive and very hard to find. You probably also know about one of the famed dupes for Clarins 230 - Max Factor Fantasy Fire! Equally gorgeous and also rather difficult to find, especially if you're in the United States!

But there is hope, my friends. Even more dupes are out there. Accessible dupes. Indie dupes. And so I present to you: Nail Pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-a-Dupe.

Candeo Colors Zef

Hello all! I have one of my favorite glitter topper indies to share today... Candeo Colors Zef!

I have a bit of a problem with perusing through the sale pages on Llarowe. Zef happened to be on the sale pages one day, and the first thing I said was HOW. Zef is a clear suspension base with a mix of black, pink, and blue microglitter, black and blue hexes, and pink square glitter - allllllll matte. swooooon

Model City You Blue Me Away

Hello, hello!

First and foremost, I want to extend a HUGE thank you to the lovely ladies over at redditpolish for being amazingly supportive and following my blog adventures through "INDIE"-AN SUMMER! You ladies are wonderful! :)

I think it is very appropriate that today I have an indie to share which I actually found out about via Reddit! It's Model City You Blue Me Away. Model City was the first indie brand I ever purchased, so it holds a special place in my little polish lovin' heart!

Sonnetarium Strawberry Smoothie

Hello! I am slightly obsessed with fruit-themed nail polish, so what the hell was expected of me when Sonnetarium released the fruitiest collection of polishes ever for their Spring 2013 line? I was picking up Cucumber Salad from the same collection for a good friend of mine's birthday when I caved and had to grab a mini of Sonnetarium Strawberry Smoothie.

Jindie Nails Princess Breath

Since it has taken me so long to start this blog up again, I shall begin with a polish that I have waited SO long to get my little fingers on: Jindie Nails Princess Breath.



"INDIE"-AN SUMMER BEGINS!


Hello, little corner of the nail polish blog world! I have disappeared for quite some time... school and work all caught up with me too quickly, so I have clearly not been so active.

But school has ended! Summer is upon us! Somehow, I've become a senior in college... sooo that's a little scary. BUT ALAS! I am back for now, at least until my final year of undergraduateness commences.

I've cleared out all the clutter of my past blog posts to make room for the new Late Night Lacquer. And if I'm only going to be around for the summer, I'm going to do it right... "INDIE"-AN SUMMER!

Okay, I know that an INDIAN summer wouldn't happen until it is nearly fall... but come on now. WE NEEDED A GOOD PLAY ON WORDS HERE. INDIE-AN. That's right. All indies, all the time, folks!

I'll have another post for my first featured polish so you aren't forced into reading a wall of text. HERE GOES!
