The Dark Defender

For weeks, I have been excited about the opening of Rainbow Connection, UK’s premier stockist of top international independent nail lacquer brands, including Dollish Polish, Lush Lacquer, Polished by KPT, Lacquer Lust, Cadillacquer and Pahlish. I’ve been selling a lot of stuff on eBay recently, so every time I’d save a little to put towards some indie polish! Annette opened the store last weekend, and the first brands to go live were CadillacquerCrowsToesLiquid Sky Lacquer, and a pre-order for Polished by KPT. I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve been lusting after some Polished by KPT thermals, so I ordered a couple of those, as well as a couple of Cadillacquer polishes, and one Liquid Sky Lacquer. I’ve also ordered the Glisten and Go HK Girl Top Coat, because I’ve heard rave reviews about it!

My first order arrived three days after I placed it, and even came with a sweet! I love people who send sweets when I order things! (truffleshuffle do it too)


Liquid Sky Lacquer even came in a cute organza bag!



The two Cadillacquer polishes I chose were from the Dexter collection (I missed out on Have A Killer Day.) I love Dexter, and I’m gutted it’s finished, but pretty polish makes it a little better! The Dark Defender is my favourite of the two. It’s amazing, I’m in love with it! (I also had a fan girl moment when Cadillacquer liked my photo on instagram and followed me!

The Dark Defender is a flakie teal jelly polish, with hints of purple and green. Did I mention that I love it? The formula was great, I used three thin coats, but you could get away with two thick coats. My pictures show 3 coats with no top coat.

Cadillacquer also have a Breaking Bad collection, so I’m hoping Rainbow Connection have that soon!
