Lacquistry - Oh Yes I Did: Swatches and Review

If you haven't yet gotten into the Etsy/indie nail polish craze, you NEED to check it out (especially if you love unique glitter polishes)! This is one I picked up from Lacquistry's Etsy shop a week or so ago.

When I first swatched it on a stick, I thought it was incredibly unique and very pretty, but I didn't really understand how GORGEOUS it was until I put it on!

Lacquistry - Oh Yes I Did (shade)

Lacquistry - Oh Yes I Did (sun)

Oh Yes I Did is a combo of small brown and blue glitter with larger brown holo and blue holo hexes in a lightly tinted brown base. It took only two coats to get nice and opaque, but took a couple layers of Gelous and Seche Vite to get it perfectly glossy smooth (even a day later after fully drying).

This is one of those rare glitters that looks amazing both in the shade AND in the sun. I walked around the Arizona Renaissance Faire on Saturday and couldn't stop staring at my fingers all day. The brown in this is such a rich auburn brown and it's perfect paired with the bright sky blue holo glitter. I had no idea how much I LOVE brown glitter until I tried this beauty - now I'm HOOKED!

Lacquistry's Etsy's shop has been pretty busy lately so she's taking a break to fill orders, but you can sign up to be notified when she returns.  Oh Yes I Did sells for $7.50 (plus shipping) for 0.5oz (15 mL).


  1. This is really pretty!!! So unique. I love it! I love the name too ;0).

  2. Yes, it is indeed a very unique shade and it looks gorgeous too! You just altered my opinions on brown polish ;)

  3. Wow... sooo pretty! And such a funny name for a polish! :)

  4. Ha, that's a really interesting combination of glitters, looks really cool.

  5. I'm not a fan of browns but this one has totally swayed me!

  6. Gorgeous! It's a shame UK shipping for these is so expensive :(

  7. Oh my gosh! This is unbelievable! I love it! Thanks for swatching!

  8. I'm not always a big fan of huge glitters, but her polishes are really pretty! I really like this one.

  9. I love this! I believe this is one of the ones I overlooked when I was making my purchase :-/ Just goes to show that you need to look two and maybe three times before ruling out a lacquer. Great swatches.

  10. That's it. I totally need this one!
