Hey guys! Sorry for the unintended absence! My kiddo got super sick over the weekend and I was on Mom duty for a few days. But I am still here and I have a fun review to share!
Me.Lissa Lacquer is an Indie polish that has a lot of really great glitter bombs - which I received six of and will be reviewing for you lovelies today! Four from the Beach Boardwalk collection and two from the Social Media collection.

Me.Lissa Lacquer - On The Carousel (Beach Boardwalk) over Julep - Lexi
On The Carousel is a neon glitter topper with a rainbow of neon glitters in various shapes and sizes. How awesome is this? Super fun and I love it over yellow! Totally bright and crazy! I got lots of compliments when I wore this after swatching. I left it on all day because it made me so happy to look it. Formula was a little on the thicker side since it is a glitter suspension base. I had to use the dab/spread method for application. But it is loaded with glitter, and this is only one coat!
Me.Lissa Lacquer - Seaside Aquarium (Beach Boardwalk) over Color Club - Wild Cactus
Seaside Aquarium is a neon glitter topper with a rainbow of neon glitters in various shapes and sizes. Mostly smaller pieces with a few larger hexes thrown in for contrast. The smaller pieces are predominantly square, again adding to the visual contrast. I love how this isn't your typical neon glitter. There is a lot going on! Same consistency as before, using the dab/spread method. I used one and a half coats for this, filling in any empty spaces on the second go.
Me.Lissa Lacquer - Top Of The Ferris Wheel (Beach Boardwalk) over Revlon - Urban
Top Of The Ferris Wheel is a glitter topper with red. blue. yellow and silver glitters in various shapes and sizes. OMG look at the giant circle glitters! I may have let out an "Ooooh" when I unwrapped this one from the package. It is an easy favorite from the collection, and over a darker base it totally looks like Ferris Wheel lights! Again, it had the same thicker base, but if it is an issue, a little bit of thinner works wonders! I did one dab/spread coat and had to fish for the bigger circle pieces, but oh so worth it. It is amazing!
Me.Lissa Lacquer - Bike Rental (Beach Boardwalk) over China Glaze - Tart-y For The Party
Bike Rental is a neon glitter topper with blue holo square and bar glitters, red, yellow, black and grey circle glitters, as well as neon glitters in various shapes and sizes. There is a lot going on in the bottle! But it works so well together. I love the contrast of the circle glitters against the neons and the surprise squares! I also really don't mind the bars, because I think they go well, and there isn't a whole lot of them. I know I am sounding, repetitive, but same consistency and dab/spread application, as well as having to fish for those dang circles!
Me.Lissa Lacquer - Internet Stardom (Social Media) over O.P.I. - My Vampire Is Buff
Internet Stardom is a glitter topper with teal and orange hex glitters, gold holo micro glitter, and gold and white star glitters. I really like this one a lot. The color combos are great and the stars!!! So awesome. I don't think I picked a good base to layer it over, tho. Something darker would have made the stars really pop. Same as the others, dab/spread & fish. You get the idea! Although it's not intended, I think this would be a great fall glitter. The colors are totally seasonal!
Me.Lissa Lacquer - QR Code (Social Media) over Wet n Wild - Teal Slowly And See
QR Code is a black and white glitter topper with square, rectangle, micro hex, and micro bar glitters. The shapes really capture the feel of a QR Code so perfectly. If you are a fan of black and white glitter, then this is a definite requirement! I did have a bit more issue with this one than the others, however. It seemed thicker, even with thinner added, and spreading out the glitters was a bit more challenging. Nice payoff, tho. I really dig the squares and rectangles! Oh, and your eyes are not crazy, I had a pretty bad break on my ring finger (trying to wrangle my dog) and had to nubbinize my nails. Oh so sad! But they grow out rather quickly.
You should definitely check out Me.Lissa Laquer for some awesome toppers. I am in love with the neons and Top Of The Ferris Wheel is a must have!
