Nerd Lacquer's Cyance Friction is Genius!

I am so excited to retry Nerd Lacquer!  I had bought a couple awhile ago, and the colors just didn't click with me. I decided to buy some colors that were more my style and I am so glad I did!  First, a little bit about Nerd Lacquer. Nerd Lacquer is made by Amanda Collier, a self-proclaimed "sic-fi nerd."  She makes all of her polishes by hand and sells them out of her Etsy shop.  Each polish is named after something related to science fiction.  I know next to nothing about the sci-fi world other than having watched the Star Wars movies, however that hasn't stopped me from buying the polish! 
Today, I have one that she just posted on her shop, Cyance Friction!
Cyance Friction is a really interesting green. To me it seemed almost neon!  I put on three coats and still had VNL.  The color just pops on my skin though and when I put the first few brush strokes on, I gasped!  While you may not see it in the pictures, there is a dark lavender glimmer to it when it hits the light!  I have never seen anything quite like it!  
 I was really excited to get the glitters on my nails. The bottle shows gold and teal glitters that look great together.  Unfortunately, even with three coats,  I only got seven teal glitters and three gold ones. :o(  This polish would have been a slam dunk if more glitter would have come out!
 The wear of this polish is fantastic. By the end of the day, I had no tip wear, and I have had tip wear at the end of the day with EVERY nail polish!  This is like wearing fiberglass on my nails!
Hey! You can kind of see the lavender glimmer on the index and middle finger!
While there was a mix of good and bad with this polish, the good far outweighed the bad!  I think with practice, I could get more glitters to come out of the bottle and next time I will just wear a creme color as a base coat for no VNL.
Amanda's shop is on Etsy.  You can buy her polishes HERE.
