This post is all about Warrior Ethos, from Nerd Lacquer’s ‘Where No Lacquer Has Gone Before’ series. The polish is a saturated red with small black, iridescent, copper, and red glitter, plus black and copper hexagonal glitter. Make no mistake, there is a lot going on in the bottle… but it all works together, creating something really amazing.
The formula is quite good. It’s a slightly sheer jelly, so it can be layered over red (or another color) to intensify the look, but it’s still opaque and true-to-bottle in two coats. I topped it with a layer of Seche Vite, since there is a little texture from the various glitters when dry.
