Nerd Lacquer, Viper. (Veteran's Day)

As you read this I will be on my way to Panamint Valley for our annual Veteran's Day Camping Weekend. How bizarre was it that Veteran's Day was observed on a Wednesday?!? Threw off our camping weekend and it will now be a short one.

To celebrate Veteran's Day I had to find a polish that encompassed the bad-assery and awesome-ness of our Vets; so I went with a Nerd!

*** Heads Up, this one's gonna be picture heavy ***

Nerd Lacquer, Viper is a dirty olive green that has been kicked into high gear by adding golden metallic sheen, bronze and gunmetal glitter, round gold sequins, and a bit of umber metallic shimmer. The little bronze glitters really jump out and look like a burnt orange. The gold sequins look like gold medallions buried in black gold sand. Such epic EPICNESS! Is that a word??? Who cares!!!

The formula is also pretty darn amazing; it applied very easily with a great brush that fanned out over the nail beautifully. 2 coats, gang, 2 freaking coats. My tips look a little sheer but in real life it wasn't even discernible. Nerds are one of my favorite glitters because they apply so well and the glitter combos are so unique.

Apparently, this polish is named after Battlestar Galactica which I know absolutely nothing about. But, I do know a kick-ass olive green polish when I see one and this is definitely KICK-ASS.

I switched up my base coat with this to help it survive camping; I went with a base coat of Gelous and also top coated the first time with Gelous as well. I added a final top coat of In A Hurry.

(I told you there were gonna be a lot of photos)

Do you have any plans for the weekend?


  1. Pretty nifty! Yeah the Vipers were their little starship fighters, that characters like Starbuck flew (female in the rebooted version but male in the original). We watched the reboot on Netflix, pretty good if you like sci fi stuff! The original is pretty cheesey 80s TV...we tried watching the pilot movie. :D

    1. Yea, those types of shows don't really appeal to me but there's nothing wrong with that! LOL My husband loves cheesy 80's TV though so I may have to give him a heads up. Plenty of people don't care for the zombie genre either... I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for a polish themed for my favorite shows/movies; you might need to add this beauty to your stash!
