Liquidus Nail Gloss Review: Pyrite, Lapis, Peanut Wood

So today I get the chance to review three amazing polishes from a new Indie polish brand!

Liquidus Nail Gloss

Where nature meets nail polish.

Liquidus is where crystal meets liquid, where trends meet fashion, where nature meets nail polish. Geology runs in my family so all of our nail polishes are inspired by rocks, gems, and minerals. We hand mix and hand pour every bottle to ensure each one meets our standards. All of our nail polishes are 3-Free (free from Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde and Toluene). And all of our nail polishes ship in ecofriendly packages that can be composted and are 100% biodegradable.

Enjoy some fingernail fashion with a clear conscience!

Here is a photos of how her polishes come wrapped! Love it!
Let's take a look at the polishes:


First up is Liquidus Pyrite. I love Danielle's description of this: "Inspired by the metallic mineral Pyrite. Don't be fooled by this polishes seemingly gold color - the polish changes slightly in the light with hues of green and yellow shimmering through." Her description is spot on! I love this type of polish, the color is amazing!

Here is one coat of Liquidus Pyrite. A bit sheer. But look at the color and the shine! It is a bit streaky but that is normal for a metallic polish. I had no problems with the application of this polish! :)

Here is two coats of Liquidus Pyrite. Opaque in two coats. Look at the shimmer in it! Gorgeous! Love these gold-green polishes, my favorite color! :)

Next up is Lapis. A lovely blue jelly with flakies! "Inspired by the ultramarine blue of the gemstone Lapis. This polish has a jelly like wear and just like the gemstone has blue flakies that shimmer in the light." 

Here is one coat of Pyrite Lapis. A true jelly! You can see some of the flakies hitting the light. This polish applied perfectly, just like a normal jelly.

Here is two coats. Still a a sheer jelly! Can't wait to try this in a jelly sandwich! I love this blue, it is so bright and happy!

This is in indirect sun (kind of cloudy today) so show some of the flakies. Check out my index finger and the flakies that are glowing. In real life the flakies really did shine and glow. But they were a bit camera shy -- sad day! (took a ton of pictures and they just didn't want to play with my camera at all!)

Next we have Liquidus Peanut Wood. I love this one! Don't get me wrong, I love the others too, but something about this one......so unique in my collection! "Inspired by the brown and white speckled petrified wood, Peanut Wood, this polish is similar to its namesake; a brown matte with two sizes of white flakes."

Here is one coat of Liquid Peanut Wood. It is sheer but that's ok, let's bring on some more! :)

Bam! Two coats of Liquidus Peanut Wood. This is the money shot! Wow. I love this! A brown polish with white square glitter? What's not to love? :) Not only does it look like actual peanut wood, but it reminds me of hot chocolate and marshmallows! :)

This is a picture of peanut wood. Very cool huh!

I really love the theme of this brand. Geology theme-based is so awesome...think of all the possibilities! Can't wait to see what else Liquidus will create!
