Lights Lacquer Review


I used to be obsessed with nail polish. French nails, polka dots, stamp kits, water marbling…in high school, I tried it all. Nowadays I don’t have as much time for my nails, but I do like to paint them when I get the chance. I haven’t purchased any new nail polishes in a while, so when I found out that Kathleen Lights had a new nail polish brand called Lights Lacquer, I had to give it a try!

Her polishes do not contain any animal derived products, and they are “7-free,” which means they are free from harmful ingredients such as DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP, and Xylene.

I love the color options for the polishes! There’s not a huge selection, but the colors that she currently sells are amazing! There are quite a few darker shades, and there’s some metallic and glitter options as well. The names are cute, and there are quite a few named after crystals (the website includes a brief description of the healing properties of the crystal the polish takes after)! Keep reading to see which ones I picked up!

Disclaimer: I purchased these polishes and decided to review them on my own; I am not affiliated with Lights Lacquer in any way.

Black Friday Colourpop Haul


I wasn’t planning on participating in Black Friday this year, but when I saw that Colourpop was offering 30%, I figured it would be the perfect time to place an order. While I have received Colourpop products as gifts, I never purchased anything from them myself, so I was excited to pick out a few things!

Colourpop is a US-based brand that I have wanted to purchase from for a while. They are cruelty-free, and they even have quite a few vegan options. In addition to this, they offer some of the most affordable prices for their makeup! They also come out with collections with amazing themes like Disney and astrology.

Surprisingly, I ended up ordering small things instead of any of their popular palettes. Since I already own a few palettes from other brands that I’ve been neglecting to use regularly, I wanted to pick up products and colors that I would actually use. Plus, being a newbie to the brand, I wanted to try out a variety of things!
