The one with NerdLacquer Shiny!

Good morning! As promised I have a second NerdLacquer today - Shiny! It's part of the Serenity/Firefly collection. The name stems from the word a lot of the characters use to describe something neat, something cool. They call the thing they like 'shiny.' :)

NerdLacquer's description of the color is:"SHINY is a clear sky blue with sapphire shift, silver and white microglitter, ultrafine opalescent blue glitter, multiple sizes of silver hex glitter, plus medium square white and silver glitter. It’s spacey, it’s cool, it’s synonymous with “fine,” and it’s very shiny indeed. Quite opaque in two coats, and surprisingly smooth with a single layer of top coat." The formula was a bit thin for me. I did use two coats, but after polishing I realized I could see some bald patches.

What do you think? I love the subtle, almost robin's egg, blue. I'm going to see about layering options with this one. :)

**DISCLAIMER**  I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these polishes myself or were given gifts as friends because I could not find the particular shade I wanted myself.  I am not a professional nail tech, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails :)
