Finger Lickin' Lacquer

*Sent to me for the purpose of review.

A few months ago during the share the love fest that was all over Facebook I was introduced to Finger Lickin' Lacquer.  At the time she hadn't released any polishes but was working on her first collection. Fast forward to now and she has her first collection ready for sale.  It's based on Ru Paul's Drag Race. Now I've never seen the show, but it certainly sounds interesting.  The collection consists of 8 colors and 6 of them are scented.  I don't normally like scented polishes because they usually give me a migraine, but these were all really nicely scented. 

I've combined the two glitter toppers together in one manicure.  On the index and ring fingers I have May I Call You Jiggly? On my middle and pinkie fingers I have Category is...Cheesecake.

Both colors took four coats to get the coverage I got and the bigger glitters were hard to get out.  I've talked to the creator and she's working on adding more glitter and getting better base. Both colors looked great over this light pink, but I think they'd look great over any color. 

Next up is Good Luck and Don't F..K it Up i'm not really a fan of the name mostly because it's NSFW. Good Luck is a super sheer green crelly with green and gold glitters in different sizes and shapes.

I paired this with a very pale green creme to get full coverage.  This is one of two unscented polishes in the collection and you can tell the base is different.  It smells so chemically, and strangely the smell of this gave me a headache.  Once again, this is one of the polishes the creator is working on fixing.  She's going to make it more opaque and use a different base so it's not as strong.

On to Look How Orange You F****N' Look another NSFW polish, but this one is stunning.

It's a gorgeous shimmery orange and is full coverage in just two coats.  I think the best part about this polish is the smell.  I love orange scented things, and this is no exception.

On to this bronze shimmery awesome color called Peanut Butter!

Peanut Butter is a scattered holographic bronze color that smells divine.  I'm not sure if it really smells like peanut butter or caramel, but either way it smells delicious. I used three coats to get full coverage.

The companion to Peanut Butter is of course Jelly and it comes in the form of Must Be Jelly.

Must Be Jelly is a deep purple shimmery polish that has lots of glitters in different shapes and sizes. Some of the glitters were a bit hard to get out and there are large red hexes that just didn't want to leave the bottle.  

Fishy and Fierce is up next and let me just say the scent on this is to die for.

Fishy and Fierce is a SWEDISH FISH scented polish. Swedish Fish are my all time favorite candy and I love the smell of them. This polish reminded me of childhood.  It's a super bright shimmery blue that is loaded with all sorts of glitters. I used three coats to get full coverage.

Lastly we have Drop Dead Orchid. As much as I loved the entire collection this color is spectacular.

Another scattered holographic color Drop Dead Orchid is the perfect mauvey color and because it's a more jelly consistency the holo shows up better. This is the other unscented polish and has the same base as the other unscented color. Once again, she's working on changing bases so this beauty won't be so strongly scented. 

Overall, I'm really pleased with her first collection and I can't wait to see what else she comes up with.  I'm really impressed. You can find all the info you need about Finger Lickin' Lacquer at her website.
