Aphrodite Lacquers RumRunner

In honor of today’s launch of the Aphrodite Lacquers Friday Night Glitter Bombs collection, here’s a look at one of Rebecca’s older polishes, RumRunner.

Aphrodite Lacquers RumRunner

Aphrodite Lacquers RumRunner

Aphrodite Lacquers RumRunner was actually the second-ever addition to my ever-growing collection of indie nail polishes, but for some reason I hadn’t swatched it yet.

RumRunner is part of Aphrodite’s The SandBar Collection, which celebrates summer-y cocktails. Genius!

The polish is a berry-colored jelly with dark pink and silver glitter.

RumRunner was a dream polish for me. It went on smooth with great application; the formula was perfect for me and it was easily removed, no staining. Plus not too many stray glitters left stranded on my skin, which is often a problem with glitter polish after removal.

This is a base coat of Gelous, two coats of RumRunner, another coat of Gelous and a coat of Poshe.

RumRunner is currently available via the Aphrodite Lacquers shop on Etsy, along with the new Friday Night Glitter Bombs. And check out my weekly Restock Radar blog post for more indie polish launches coming this week.

Recent Haul

Sorry for the long absence, life got in the way! Rest assured, just because I wasn’t blogging about nail polish doesn’t mean I wasn’t buying nail polish. Here’s a quick look at a recent haul, meaning you can expect a closer look at several of these soon.

A collection of nail polishes from Revlon, Essie and others

From left to right:

Essie Matte About You: a mattifying top coat that I’m very eager to try out over a glitter polish. I’ve seen that on several blogs and really love the look,especially over a black base.

Revlon Whimsical: probably best known as a dupe of Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter In The Air, it’s a fun shade for summer, very light and soothing.

Lush Lemony Flutter: I’ve seen rave reviews of this cuticle butter on several of my favorite blogs, so I wanted to give it a whirl.

Revlon Fashionista: an intriguing blue, which I thought might pair well with Whimsical.

Aphrodite Lacquers RumRunner: Rebecca is now making waves in the indie polish world with her new Evil Indie Polish Queen line, but this one is from her earlier SandBar collection, which is still available on Etsy.

Essie Set In Stones: from Essie’s luxeffects top coat collection, this one is described by the company as “disco mirror ball chaos.” Yes, please!
