Twinsie Tuesday: Lush Lacquer Clowning Around

Twinsie Tuesday is channeling "the greatest show on Earth" this week with circus-inspired manis! I really wasn't up to muddling my way through some misguided attempts to make poorly drawn circus animals, so it was indie polish to the rescue! Lush Lacquer Clowning Around not only has a circus-related name, but the bold neon pops of blue, pink, orange, purple and lime green remind me of the colorful costumes and sets that help create the circus' festive atmosphere. At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;) Ironically enough, I have never liked clowns and I was terrified of them as a little kid. Clowning Around has a clear base, so here it is over Illamasqua Scorch, a white creme.

The formula on this polish was so-so. The base is a bit thick and matte neon pieces don't spread very evenly. I had to do a third coat to try and cover up some bald patches. I would suggest leaving extra time between coats, as I wound up with some little ripple marks on my middle and ring finger where some of the polish got pulled off a bit when I applied the next coat.

Be sure to see what my other Twinsies are up to this Tuesday with their circus manis! :)
