My First Indie - Gumball by Lush Lacquer

24 comments

Hiya guys! I have about five days left before the day I am dreading and stressful about. Doing my best not to think about it, but we all know how that is. So I'm keeping myself busy participating in as many things as I can and swatching my nights away. Nail girl logic, haha. Now for today's post I have a heck of a throwback! It's time to show you guys my first ever indie polish... from three years ago!

Lush Lacquer - Gumball

This is Gumball by the former Lush Lacquer. I believe it was two years ago at this point, but Lush Lacquer had a name change to Polish Me Silly. I'm sure that's a name you guys might be more familiar with.

Hard to believe this polish is almost three years old, isn't it?

It still had an amazingly smooth formula and opaque in two coats. The one thing that has happened over time, however, is the yellow glitters ended up bleeding out. Because of this, the color of the base changed slightly to a peachy pink instead of a lighter pink it was originally. Regardless, I'm still really impressed! Especially considering one of my other polishes from around that time frame was completely thick to the point of no return.

I seriously got so many flashbacks of when I first discovered the nail and indie community on Instagram. Heck you can still even find my first swatch of it on Instagram! I was completely in awe and wanted to spend my whole paycheck in one shot. That much really hasn't changed though, haha. It's so nice that I still had the one that started it all in my collection and that it was still wearable.

So tell me guys, what was your first indie polish?

    1. I've always wanted a Lynnderella but still don't own one. I think I just want it for the sake of the name though haha.
