Hello fellow polish people!  Today I have a new brand to show you by Messy Jessi Lacquer!    I’ve followed Jessica on Instagram for a while now and my interest was piqued when she said she was going to be starting her own brand of polish. These all had the same formula so I will do a wrap up of my thoughts at the end!  I also used 3 coats for all of the swatches except the last one.

“Easter Bunny” has a lilac base with black glitter ranging from medium sized hexes to micro glitter!

“Finch” has a mint green base with the same black glitter.

“House Wren” has a medium pink base with black glitter.  The base is a little more subdued than it shows here.

“Speckled” is the only one not in a colored base.  It’s a topcoat filled with the same black glitter used in all of these polishes but in a clear base so you can layer it over whatever color you want.  I used 2 coats over Deborah Lippmann “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” (pointer), Zoya “Pippa” (middle), OPI “Ogre The Top Blue” (ring) and Butter London “Squatter” (pinkie.)

Sometimes with new indie brands, I’m a little wary to try them.  Only because I tend to wonder how much thought they put into them.  Did they test glitter?  Did they just throw stuff together, bottle it, slap a label on and call it good?  I can tell you, this is NOT the case with these!  I am so impressed by this collection.  The formula was amazing.  Great coverage in 3 thin coats, glitter pickup was just perfect, and I loved the way they looked on my nails!  I also love that there was a glitter topcoat because I seriously want to layer “Speckled” over EVERY creme I own!  It looks like graffiti!  I am obsessed with it!  All of these polishes are truly a great addition to my stash!  Not to mention, she obviously spent time creating the label design, which I really appreciate.  It looks really professional.  The packaging was also great!  It was really cute and all the polishes were wrapped with care in sweet little rolls.  Sometimes it’s the little things that make a polish that much better.  You would think that Messy Jessi had been around for a while!

Messy Jessi Lacquer has a pre-order going on right now for this collection on their website.  If you don’t want to do the pre-order the polishes will be available in singles after the pre-order ends on 4/23.  Don’t forget to follow Messy Jessi Lacquer on Facebook and Instagram for shop news and updates!
