Polishes were sent for review


Hi everyone! I am excited to share FIVE of Charlie's Rad Lacquer nail polishes *squeals* with you. The stars of today's post are: That Flaming Hair, Irish Blood, Luckiest Shamrock, Peace Ain't Easy and Fat Tuesday. What are you waiting for? Let's get started with this ultra long post!

That Flaming Hair


As quoted from Charlie's Rad Lacquer, this polish is "a bright orange shimmery color with red holographic glitters in in that dries to a textured finish".


The formula for this polish was a little thick, however still manageable. I had no problems with the brush although this was a mini sized bottle (which is great) and the application was good. It dries matte with a textured finish that is to my liking as it was not "overly" textured.

The bright orange instantly reminded me of fresh-squeezed orange citrus, mmm delicious. Adding on, there are also bright red, green, and gold glitters when shone in different lighting! I kept moving my fingers to catch the light and looking out for those gorgeous glitter.

After applying a layer of Seche Vite topcoat, I relised that I could still see the textured finish and it was less gritty to the touch. Personally, I would rather have it textured.  If you're a bold and orange girl, you should definitely go for That Flaming Hair!


Irish Blood


Irish Blood is described as a "soft metallic green", quoted from Charlie's Rad Lacquer website.


The formula of Irish Blood is nice and thin. The application was easy and two coats was all that was needed. Brush strokes are a little visible but otherwise I do like this shade of green-teal colour. There are blue, green, hints of red and silver micro glitters that are very subtle.



Swatches of Irish Blood are in two coats with Seche Vite topcoat.



Although I used a top coat, the polish itself after letting it dry is already very shiny and glossy. This color may be seen quite often but I think that the micro glitters are what makes Irish Blood different from the rest.

Luckiest Shamrock 



Luckiest Shamrock is described as a "deep green holographic" by Charlies Rad Lacquer.


The formula of Luckiest Shamrock is the same as Irish Blood. It was easy to work with and the coverage was good in two coats. This dark forest green is unlike any in my stash. The contrasting bright red and light green glitter gives the whole dark based green a different dimension. It also reminds me of Christmas actually. I can foresee using Luckiest Shamrock for the coming season!

I must say that in real life, the green is a much muted and deeper green than pictured above but I do like it this way as it does go well with the glitters which aren't that loud either (:

Peace Ain't Easy

Described as "a super sparkly white that dries to a soft textured finish"


When I first saw the bottle, I thought that Peace Ain't Easy was going to be a pretty silver elegant pearl finish. I was wrong. It surprisingly dried to a matte textured finish!


The formula was similar to That Flaming Hair, slightly gloopy but manageable application. The best part of this polish is that it's sparkle is so so shimmery! Plus, the sparkles are of lighter shades of red, green and blue. Pretty, my favorite of all the polishes seen today!!

Fat Tuesday


Fat Tuesday is described as "a creamy gold metallic"



I was very eager to try out Fat Tuesday because I find gold really nice on the nails. However, I was dissapointed with the formula. Unlike the other nail polishes, I find it much thicker and harder to apply.


Nonetheless, this unique shade of gold compliments my skintone and I instantly felt like a Greek god for some reason LOL.
