Nerd Lacquer - Holy Grail: Swatch and Review

Sorry for the absence!  I was snowed in at my parents house and couldn't get to my camera or computer.

Yet another one where I'm not sure WHY I got it, but it sort of just jumped into my Nerd Lacquer order (I think I was in the "BUY ALL THE NERD LACQUER!" mentality... haha).

Anyway, I actually ended up wearing it for a few days because I loved it so much!

Nerd Lacquer - Holy Grail

Holy Grail is a whole bunch of different shapes/sizes of silver holo glitter in a dusty light teal holo AND glow-in-the-dark base! At first I thought the base color was a little bland, but after wearing it I realized that it toned down all of the crazy holo in this just enough to make a really pretty, classy polish. Not everyone may like it (and it actually took me a couple hours of wearing it for me to fully appreciate it), but I'm very happy I picked this one up.  I actually ended up being very pleased with EVERY Nerd Lacquer polish I got!  This only took two coats to be fully opaque (like all of the Nerd Lacquers I currently have), and the glitter lays nice and flat although it does need a couple coats of topcoat (Gelous and SV) to be smooth.

Again, Nerd Lacquers can be found in the NerdLacquer store on Etsy, on NinjaPolish, and Harlowe & Co, but are kinda of hard to catch in stock. All of these sites offer some way of being notified when it IS in stock, so sign up for the emails if you're really itching for some Nerdiness!


  1. WOW! That's all I can say! This is amazing!

  2. Wow, this is so amazing! I will have to order it asap!

  3. lovely, really lovely. And now i've got that image of that strange stick man shouting" buy all the NerdLacquer" in my mind ha ha xxx PS congrats on winning Sarah's contest, it was a GENIUS mani xxxx

  4. Wow, this looks very very cool and so gorgeous.

    I've been trying to order from Ninja Polish, but you're right, catching stuff in stock there is like trying to catch a unicorn by the tail using tweezers. Soooo hard.
    But I'm gonna do it someday, and I'm glad to see them be so wildly successful. :D

  5. Thank GOOSE you're BACK!

    Also, almost did a double-take at the words "snowed in". It's been so unseasonably warm here for months now, it's been in the upper 70s all week and spring only just started!
