Firecracker Lacquer – Candle Salad Collection

Press Release

 Oh my gawd….anxiety has started to kick in and I am on the verge of a panic attack! But instead of being a bad one, it’s a good one if there is such a thing. I leave for New York in 24 hours! I am a ball of nerves! I tried to pack my suitcase last night and umm….lets just say that was a major fail! I don’t even feel like I am bringing much! But apparently my suitcase says otherwise. I will be there until Monday night and then up bright and early for work Tuesday! But I don’t care. This is my first plane ride as an adult ( I don’t remember the one time I flew as a child) and my first time going to the Big Apple! I am super excited and can NOT wait to meet all my fellow indie polish lovers!

But enough about me! I was given the opportunity to work with a  new to me brand, Firecracker Lacquer, besides the fact that I absolutely LOVE the name, Kendahl is such a doll to work with. She communicated with me quickly and I just love her sense of humor. If you haven’t googled the collection name yet, you most certainly should. I will even make it easy for you, just click here and be prepared to laugh! More information on the release will be at the bottom as usual babes!:) Lets get this picfest rolling, shall we!?

Blow Me Raspberries is described as a bright berry pink, brimming with pink and holo microglitters in varying sizes. As y’all know, I ma not the biggest glitter fan, but I can get behind these! I was so very pleasantly surprised when this polish was completely opaque in 2 coats. The formula was great, it wasn’t thick like a lot of micro glitters can be sometimes. I didn’t need to sponge AT ALL! Say whaaaat! Now these microglitters are some thirsty chicas. So I would recommend 2 thin coats of top coat or one generous coat. I also want to add that for it being a glitter polish, clean up wasn’t crazy stupid hard! I mean it didn’t just slide off but I only needed a little elbow grease pose to having to soak them off!

Cherry Poppin’ is described as a raging red, filled to the rim with red and holo microglitters in varying sizes. I personally love this red! I feel like some of the reflection in it give it a scattered magenta color. Absolutely stunning! This one only needed 2 coats as well and no sponging. But the other 2 microglitters in this collection also only needed 2 coats and all 4 of the micro glitters are thirsty as all hell. So make sure to apply enough top coat But also make sure everything is dry in between coats. Also I wanted to say that in the matte photos I was a little trigger happy and took pictures before the matte top coat was completely dry. Totally my fault! So ignore my eff you finger..Haha <3

Eggplant Emoji is described as a pleasant purple, packed full of purple and holo microglitters in varying sizes. Same formula as the other two. Same need for top coat too. I like this purple, it really reminds me of the crayola purple. Oppmf..these are so much more sparkly in real life. I did 2 coats and a thick top coat.

Stick & (blue) Berries is described as a brilliant blue, bursting with blue and holo microglitters in varying sizes. I really love this blue because it’s a true darker blue. Not navy leaning or even indigo. Its simply blue! 2 coats and top coat! Dont you just love these names…if You havent looked it up yet, you should because well….the names would make more sense! Haha

Taste My Rainbow is described as a scintillating silver foil lacquer stuffed with shifting flakies and holo microglitters in varying sizes and colors. This one is my favorite! As much as I love the holo and opaqueness (new word?) I have been on a real flakies kick! This is such a cool polish. Because it isn’t heavily packed with micro glitters I really thought this one would be a thinner polish and I was right but the formula was still amazing. I was so pleased that it too only needed 2 coats. The only difference is that she’s not a thirsty girl like the other 4. Haha.

Well that brings this funny named collection to an end! It was a pleasure working with Kendahl and I hope we can again in the future. Firecracker Lacquer is an amazing brand and if you haven’t tried them out, I definitely recommend you do so now with the Candle Salad Collection! Each polish will be $11 and will release May 4th at 8:00pm EST. All 5 of these colors are so cohesive and you will need them all! I love polish collections you can use together! Haha I mean most are like that, but not all!

I am off to go try to find a jacket because now it’s saying it’s going to be in the 50s in New York, so I was not prepared! I live in FL -_- no need for jackets, just a light sweater a handful of times a year! Ha But anyways, make sure to join Kendahls Fan group on Facebook and follow on IG for all the latest happenings!
