Top Shelf Lacquer is not only a brand new indie to us at MLC, but it’s a brand new indie altogether. When I came across some photos on Instagram, I knew I was going to have to try them out.
When the brand launched, it did not ship to Canada. I rely on a mule (polish term for a friend that will forward polish on) to get polish that isn’t available in Canada, so I tried to be responsible and only ordered a couple instead of the entire Adult Soda Shoppe collection like I wanted to. My choices were Watermelon Malibu Smurf and Tidal Wave.
Watermelon Malibu Smurf is by far my favourite of the collection. It’s a neon pastel pink but it really is unique to my collection. The name suits it perfectly.
Tidal Wave is a gorgeous pastel blue. It’s just a touch too pigmented to be a baby blue but it’s not non-pastel either. Follow that? 😉 As with Watermelon Malibu Smurf, it took two coats for coverage and I really am impressed with how nice they are for cremes.
For a little fun, I turned both these colours into a gradient. They worked perfectly and I am excited to add others so that I can try out some water marbles.
Since the launch, Top Shelf Lacquer has added international shipping to the store, so I will be headed back for the missing sisters of this collection. Top Shelf Lacquer can be found on Etsy
