CDB Lacquer - 2 Year Indie-Versary Duo

11 comments

Hiya guys! Today I am sharing a very special review with a brand that is near and dear to my heart, CDB Lacquer. Cheyenne was one of the first makers to give me a chance as a swatcher and blogger. She took a big leap of faith trusting her products to a complete novice and that's something I will always remember. I'm not normally this mushy, but CDB Lacquer is turning two and with that is releasing a special Indie-Versary Duo! Let's go ahead and get started with this review!


The 2 Year Indie-Versary Duo by CDB Lacquer will be available for purchase February 1st at noon EST. Each full-size bottle will retail for $8.50 each and the duo set will retail for $16.00.

Keep On Believing

Keep on Believing can be described as a dark purple jelly with numerous glitters in different sizes. So squishy! For a jelly polish this ends up having a much more opaque application than anticipated. The coats layer nicely and there is ample glitter in each brush stroke. There was a bit of dabbing here and there to make sure the glitters wouldn't clump up in certain areas. I could have probably got away with just one layer of topcoat, but I wanted a little extra shine with my squish. Shown here is two coats and double the topcoat.

Have Faith in Your Dreams can be described as a purple to pink scattered holo thermal. My big must with a thermal is that it has to have a noticeable transition and this one definitely hits that check-box.  For my swatches, I used hot and cold water to trigger the transitions shown. The formula has a good consistency, not too thick or thin and has an even opaque application. It dries to a semi-gritty finish, but a thick layer of topcoat easily smoothed it down. Shown here in two coats and a glossy topcoat.

Overall the Indie-Versary Duo is a fantastic representation of what Cheyenne does best, glitters and thermals. The formulas are as I have come to expect from CDB Lacquer over the years and have a great application with just two easy coats. I love the color selection for this duo as well (I mean who doesn't love some good purples, right?!!?) they are really fun shades to wear year-round. If you haven't tried out this brand yet, then this is definitely the duo to kick off your addiction with.

As I mentioned earlier, the 2 Year Indie-Versary Duo by CDB Lacquer will be available for purchase February 1st at noon EST. Each full-size bottle will retail for $8.50 each and the duo set will retail for $16.00.
