Daily Lacquer Swirly Twirly Gumdrops + Zoya Storm

Hey guys! Starting from today, expect lots of Christmas and winter manis! Hope you're excited, because I sure am! This is definitely my favorite time of the year, and I am thrilled to display that on my nails :) Today I have for you a super cute polish from a new indie brand Daily Lacquer. When I saw Daily Lacquer pop up on Etsy I knew I had to have them on my nails -- all the colors are so bright and adorable, just the way I like it! The owner Maggy was sweet enough to include a couple minis from her holiday collection to share with you guys -- today I have for you Swirly Twirly Gumdrops. This title makes me laugh, because if anyone has seen Elf, the movie this collection is based on, you will remember the story of Buddy's journey that he tells over and over and over again... :) a really cute movie, I definitely recommend it! Swirly Twirly Gumdrops is full of red, blue, teal, and lavender medium hexes, large white hexes, and tons of teal/gold iridescent microglitter. It's really bright and colorful, so I wanted to layer it over something dark to really show it off. I picked Zoya Storm, the black holo from the new holiday collection, and hands down the best black holo I own. I adore both these polishes and love the way they looked together, check it out!

On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off Base coat
2 coats Zoya Storm
1 coat Seche Vite
2 coats Daily Lacquer Swirly Twirly Gumdrops
2 coats Seche Vite

I actually wore Storm for awhile before I put on the glitter because it is so lovely by itself (hence the extra middle coat of Seche), but I wasn't able to get any pictures unfortunately. I was worried that the microglitter of Swirly Twirly Gumdrops might overpower the holo of Storm, but it still pops nicely in the sun I think! Swirly Twirly Gumdrops itself was pretty nice to apply -- I didn't get any white hexes the first coat, but they came out easily, no fishing require the second one! They all laid pretty flat and while I did dab a little to place the glitter the way I wanted, it applied pretty well. A little bumpy, but with so many large glitters that is to be expected, so it didn't bother me too much -- just use your extra topcoat, and all is well. I loved both these polishes and I am so excited to try more of both -- the rest of the Zoya holiday collection as well as more Daily Lacquer polishes! Can't wait! :)
