Rogue Lacquer - VIP2
Polishcon Minneapolis was last Saturday and I am so grateful that I got the chance to go. I opened up a bit and talked with a few people that I didn't know and overall had a great time. My daughter was my plus one and ended up coming home with more than a few polishes of her own. In today's post, I will be sharing with you a Polishcon VIP bag polish but not one I got this weekend. I decided to reach into the VIP bag from the New York Polishcon last summer and ended up pulling out Rogue Lacquer VIP2.
For those of you who were wondering, no I wasn't able to attend the event in New York, but I was lucky enough to be able to purchase one of the leftover VIP bags. I'm not sure if there are any bags left from last weekends event but I'd suggest checking out the Polishcon Facebook group to find out.
VIP 2 is a medium silver grey polish with scattered holographic glitter in various sizes ranging from micro to shards.
The formula is very easy to work with. The polish covers evenly but is a bit sheer on the first coat. Normally I don't think a sheer first coat is a good thing but in this case, it allowed the holo glitters to really come through the polish and add visual interest. My pet peeve with polish is when the base color is so thick or opaque that it covers up the glitter from the previous coat.
VIP 2 builds up nicely reaching full opacity after two coats along with a balanced amount of holo glitter on each nail. There is a slightly gritty texture when the polish dries but it's nothing that a layer of top coat can't smooth out. Shown here is two coats plus glossy top coat.
So confession time, I actually wore this polish back in August but am just getting around to blogging it now. The reason I mention this is because I liked this polish so much as was impressed that I was able to get a full week's worth of wear with only a teeny tiny bit of tip wear on my pointer fingers. This is my first Rogue Lacquer polish but I had to buy three polishes from the new Wilds of Arizona collection while at the convention based on this experience.
Are you familiar with Rogue Lacquer? Do you have a favorite polish from them or one on your wishlist? Let me know in the comments and as always Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
