Thank Goodness, Indie Friday - Sassy Lacquer Pumpkin Spice Review


So I have a special addition of TGIF: Thank Goodness, Indy Indie Friday! Today I get to review a fantastic polish by Sassy Lacquer called Pumpkin Spice (new version). I am totally excited about this! **Warning - Picture Heavy!**

Carrie (the mastermind behind the indie brand) started off as a blogger for Reflections, Sassy Nails, and Silly Diversions. Sassy Lacquer was created by Carrie as a result of her love for pretty lacquer (which she creates wonderfully!), earlier in 2012 with her first collection that launched in April. Carrie makes all her polishes by hand in her home in sunny Florida, and each are made with raw ingredients and are "3 Free"! Since April she has been releasing a new "line" of lacquers every few months. 

The polish that I am review today, Pumpkin Spice, is from her Fall 2012 line and is currently available through her Sassy Lacquer store. So, let's take a closer look....

This, my dear readers is Pumpkin Spice.  I will give you a minute to pick your jaw up off the floor. This is a stunning polish! I have shown you it here alone without anything under it but a base coat. Starting with my index finger is 4 coats, 3 coats on my middle finger, 2 coats on my ring finger, and 1 coat on my pinky finger. 

This picture is a bit blurry to show you all the glitter aspects of this polish. This polish contains a clear base with ultra fine brass glitter, a touch of ultra fine red glitter, a smidgen of ultra fine black glitter, a pinch of burning leaves glitter, fine white glitter, small orange matte glitter, small orange metallic glitter, and small brown glitter. Look at that shimmer! 

Since I have helped Carrie in the past with naming her polishes she approached me again to help her with her Fall and Winter lines. So she sent me some images of her swatches and I saw this polish and knew right away this needed to be called Pumpkin Spice. (actually this is a new version of the polish and this looks so much more that pumpkin spice than the original!). What's more fall than pumpkin spice? I add it to everything this time of year! :)

So let's take a look of it over some colors. Here, starting with my thumb and working l-r are: OPI Skull & Glossbones, OPI Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI?, Nails Inc Hampstead Gardens, China Glaze Custom Kicks, and Finger Paints Black Expressionism. Isn't it just perfect over any color!? And look at that ultra fine glitter shimmer away!

Now, let's talk about the formula of Pumpkin Spice. It is perfect! Seriously! It applied like a glitter dream with the perfect mixture of glitters! In the bottle it looked like it would be gloopy but it's not! And the shine! Wow!

Here is a macro bottle shot of Sassy Lacquer Pumpkin Spice. Ah-mazing!

Now, your mission, if you choose to accept it (and you should) is to go over to her store and purchase your own wonderful bottle of Pumpkin Spice so you can make all your manis this fall just a bit spicier! :)

Oh and guess what? Carrie loves to make custom lacquer's! So if you have a polish that you wish existed go and talk to her! :)
