NOTD: Vastra from Bigmouth Lacquer ~ a New Indy Company

Posted on: March 1, 2013

I wrote last week about my first Indy polish from Bigmouth Lacquer which I’ll show a picture of below. My friend Erica started making this polish so I bought my first Indy, ever. She also sent me a couple of mini bottles, Vastra and Cutie Mark.

Vastra by Bigmouth Lacquer. This is one of the mini bottles she sent to me in Vastra. I asked her about the name because I’d never heard it and she sent me a picture of a lizard looking woman who was green and scaly on the outside, but Erica says she really has a heart of gold. Which is a great definition of this polish. It is the most beautiful color of green with gold glitter. It is what I would describe as a “spring green”, very light, not too light, not too green.

I have a hard time with green, orange, and yellow nail polish. They don’t look good on my skin, so I tried several base coats with this polish. I liked it with the baby blue base, I like blue and green together. I also liked it with WnW Sugar Coat which is a pink based beige. But then I got to looking at just Vastra by itself, and it is really pretty and I think it looks nice with my skin tone.

This is 2 and a half coats of Vastra, no base coat. Erica calls this a crelly polish, which I think is a mixture of cream and jelly, which is exactly what it is. There is a small bit of VNL, but with this polish it didn’t bother me. Bigmouth Lacquers are all 3 free and they hand made by Erica. She said she wanted to make polish that she wanted to wear and she is inspired by geeky things.

These are the 3 polishes I have from Bigmouth Lacquer. It was really hard to edit this photo, with a blue on one side and a green on the other but I think I came pretty close to what they look like. The blue on the left is the one I bought in full size from Erica.

You Can’t Take the Sky from Me from Bigmouth Lacquer. This is my favorite of the 3, this is a beautiful blue with so much dimension. I hope you will check out her store on etsy, she has a few polishes on the site and I know she is working like crazy to get some more up.
As a surprise, Erica is offering a deal not to be passed up! When you go to her etsy store and buy 1 polish at regular price ($9 + $4 shipping) you will get your 2nd bottle at Half Off. Use the code FACEBOOK5. This code is only good for a week and she posted on Tuesday. (I have been working all week on this post, I wanted you to see it before the coupon code expires.)
Also, please visit Bigmouth Lacquer on Facebook. Erica has been working hard and she has some great photos up of her new colors. She has the prettiest raspberry pink that was just posted.
For my first experience with “Indy” polish I was very pleased. I really like the YCTTSFM (blue) one, and I was surprised by how good Vastra looks with my skin tone, being such a pretty green. Cutie Mark will be a great topper, it has blue and purple glitter, one of my favorite combinations. I will tell you there was an odor to the Vastra. The other 2 of course have a smell, it’s nail polish after all, but Vastra was quite a bit stronger. It might just be me, or it might be the green coloring, but I wanted to tell you about it.

This is my friend Erica. She used to make videos on You Tube, which were awesome! But now you can find her on twitter @SugarandBrine, she also tweets using @BigmouthLacquer and she is on Facebook, link above, for Bigmouth Lacquer. If anyone knows a thing about nail polish it is Erica. She has a collection of over 300 polishes and she does some great nail art. I honestly hope you check out her etsy store.
Which polish did you pick up from Bigmouth Lacquer?

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
