Hello Everyone!! It's Thursday already!! yay! I have two beauties from Nostalgic Lacquer today. First up we have Mad World. This is a gorgeous glitter mix!! Perfect for New Year's Eve!
I started with 2 coats of Chanel Vertigo and added one coat of Mad World then topped with Seche Vite. The glitter applied very nicely and gives great coverage for just one coat! The mix is fantastic, ensuring that every nail will look unique!
It was hard to capture, but the glitter also reflects beautifully. A few of the glitters are holographic, so they add extra sparkle!
The cool thing about this collection from Nostalgic, is that these are all based on songs. Here is the song/video from YouTube for Mad World, by Tears for Fears. I'm loving the 80's theme of the songs too :-) So fun! It makes me laugh, because I just remember listening to these songs with my Mom!
Nostalgic Lacquer is sold at http://nostalgicnaillacquer.bigcartel.com/ for $9.75 each. Both are in stock!!
She also sometimes adds stock to her shop on Etsy, Nostalgic Lacquer. You can also find polishes at Overall Beauty - Nostalgic for $10 each.

I love these two shots of the bottles where you can see how much variety you have with this glitter! I see squares, hexagons, diamonds, bar glitter, circle glitter, hearts, and that's just shapes! It's a rainbow of color in the bottle! Any color would look great as a base for this, as it adds that extra party/confetti feel!
Erin says: "Mad World is a part of the New Wave Winter collection and is a dazzling mixture of approximately 100 different glitters (and growing!). Hexes, squares, diamonds, shreds, hearts, stars, circles and bars! Each bottle is completely unique and different from the next. Layer this over your favorite base colors to create a totally original look."
Next we have Rock Me Amadeus!!
For this mani, I used 2 coats and topped with Seche Vite. In certain angles I can see my nail line, but in person it isn't as noticeable.
It applied extremely well! The glitters applied perfectly.
This color is based on the song Rock Me Amadeus by Falco. Here is a video from YouTube. At first I didn't think I knew it, but as it played, I do know the chorus! :-)
Here is a bottle shot! Isn't this such a great combo of glitters?!
Erin says: "Rock Me Amadeus is a part of the New Wave Winter collection and is a white base with burgundy, black, aqua and purple squares and hexes in multiple sizes. Perfect over your favorite white base color but very buildable on it's own!"
Close up!! So creamy and pretty! I love it in 2 coats, but you could easily layer as Erin suggested!
I really love the collection theme. I did a little more research to get some info on the New Wave music, and here a quick quote from Wikipedia:New Wave is a subgenre of rock music that emerged in the mid to late 1970s alongside punk rock. The term at first generally was synonymous with punk rock before being considered a genre in its own right that incorporated aspects of electronic and experimental music, mod subculture, disco and 1960s pop music. New Wave, as a term, has been used to describe all post-punk rock music, yet, it distances itself from other post-punk movements as it displays characteristics common to pop music, rather than the more "arty" post-punk.
As a genre, it incorporates much of the original punk rock sound and ethos yet it is characterized by greater complexity in both music and lyrics. Common characteristics of New Wave music, aside from its punk influences, include the use of synthesizers and electronic productions, the importance of styling and the arts, as well as a great amount of diversity. As a term, New Wave is often used to describe music which was quirky and eccentric, yet also catchy and pop at heart, incorporating clear melodious hooks. In such a way, its style varies greatly, ranging from 1950s and 60s rock revivalism, ska and reggae-styled music, to synthpop-oriented dance.
New Wave is seen as one of the definitive genres of the 1980s; at the time, it enjoyed commercial success as several of the major artists and groups of the time were labelled New Wave. The genre became a fixture on MTV, and the popularity of several New Wave artists has been partially attributed to the exposure that was given to them by the channel. In the mid 1980s differences between New Wave and other music genres began to blur. New Wave has enjoyed resurgences since the 1990s, after a "nostalgia" for New Wave swept across the music scene, influencing several artists. The revivals in the 1990s and early 2000s were small, but became popular by 2004; subsequently, the genre has influenced a variety of music genres.
