Good morningish!!! I received a polish the other day via mail that I have been wanting for a very long time now.
Every single blog that I have read, or at least a huge majority of them, there is one polish that connects them all. (Yes, that's a pun...you'll see.) The coveted Lynnderella Connect the Dots. It's on everyone's wish list. I didn't even include it on mine, mainly because it is nearly impossible to find it without having to spend about a billion dollars.
So I have been searching for dupes. I found one for $8.75 with $3.00 shipping, and it is fairly close. So without further ado: Wet n Wild On a Trip with Lush Lacquer's Salt n Peppa.
There is a TON of tiny little square, I think, holo glitters. There is also large square white and black glitter, smaller black and white squarish glitter, and white bar glitter.
1 coat Sally Hansen's Double Duty base coat
1 coat Orly's base coat
2 coats Wet n Wild On a Trip
2 coats Lush Lacquer Salt n Peppa
Wet n Wild's On a Trip is a fantastic color. The photos make it look much more blue than it actually is. It is a pastelish purple. The photos are SO close, but just imagine a little more red in the color to make it purple. It is a very nice color.
The application was great. It could have gone on in one coat, but I had a few bald spots. I think the bald spots could have been avoided if they hadn't included their awful Manicurve Pro Brush. Blegh. I DO NOT like the brush on this polish. And I've noticed while using this line of Wet n Wild, I have a huge problem with the cap. And it is a silly problem...so please, laugh at me. I feel like I have to turn it way to many times to open it. When I unscrew this line of polish, when I come to a point where I think it should be open now, I have like 1 or 2 more turns to turn before it is actually open. And every time this happens, I always say to myself, "Gah! I have to turn this so much to open it! It could use a few less turns. They forget how lazy some of us are...." Seriously. I say that verbatim to myself every single time.
Other than the stinkin brush and the too many turns cap, I love this polish.
Lush Lacquer's Salt n Peppa is a great idea. I DO like this polish...but I felt like there are too many holo glitters, and not enough black and white glitters. It is really lacking in the bar glitter. So I was just slightly disappointed. I've been searching and searching for a black and white glitter polish, and when I found this one, I was like "YES! I'M SO FREAKING STOKED!" and now...I'm happy I have it...I just have the small disappointment. It also was a pain to apply. Not that it was HARD, but I had a tough time controlling the glitter. It is a bit goopy, but their package included a disclaimer that said some people find it goopy, and to add polish thinner. So I'm not even upset about the goopy-ness. They knew it, and told me, the customer, about it. So that was awesome!! I will be adding a bit of thinner, and trying it again. I also felt like it dried CRAZY fast. Which is a huge win in my book! I really do love this polish...I just would have changed a few things had I been making it. I'm not going to go give them a bad feedback post, because I don't have anything BAD to say. They gave me the black and white glitter polish that I have been searching for! I'm one happy momma!!!
All in all, I really love this manicure. It really makes me think of a Jackson Pollock painting. And being a huge art nerd, it brings a smile to my face every time I look at my nails.
I will be buying more from Lush Lacquer. If you want to buy polishes from them, you can find their Etsy shop HERE!
I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY want the following polishes from them (which I will be adding to my wishlist ASAP!):
I accept gifts at any time. ;) HEHE.
What do you all think of this combo? Do you have any Lush Lacquer polishes? What do you think of Salt n Peppa?? Would you buy this polish?
Until next time...

given the polish for this review. I paid for the polish with my own
money. This is purely my own opinion, thoughts, and suggestions about
