Review of Vivid Lacquer

 Good Evening!
I have 3 polishes from Anni at Vivid Lacquer that I was given to review. Here they are:
The 3 on the bottom. The top row was the Halloween collection in mini sizes, which I purchased because I thought it was a totally dead on Halloween collection, definitely the best out of all the indie ones I saw. I appreciate good polish artistry! Now I find that I only ever buy indie polishes if they are very unique because I have so many ingredients to make my own polishes now.

The ones I was given to review are called: Hivemind, Assemble and Sketchbook. Here's Hivemind first:
 As you can tell from the pictures, this was thick and lumpy. It was hard to work with, and some of the black hexagons were curled. This polish is great in concept, but the formula didn't work for it. The base was like trying to apply glitter glue.
1 coat over 2 coats of ORLY Lemonade, which is a great pale yellow creme and opaque in 2 coats.
Up next to bat is Assemble:
 Assemble is a very interesting black jelly polish, and not something I would typically go for. This is 2 coats. I feel like this is something best worn on its own, if you layered it over black I think alot of the effect of the glitter would be lost. This polish was a bit gooey as well, but nothing major.
Last is my favorite of the bunch, Sketchbook.

The formula in this one was the best out of the 3, and I love the glitter combination, it is so cool. Lots of tiny black and white glitters, with just a touch of holographic sparkle pigment. You can't see that very well in these pictures, I don't know why they turned out so blurry.
This is over only 1 coat of ORLY Snowcone. I have 4 polishes from the ORLY Sweet collection and the formula on them is impeccable. they are all great. The other 2 I have are Gumdrop and Lollipop.
It was just such a great collection of unique pastel colors. Really cool.

I have not worn the Halloween polishes yet, (I know, it's almost Christmas...) but I feel that the formula on them is less gooey. I'm not sure if it's just the base over time or what. What do you think of these polishes?
I would like to thank Anni at Vivid Lacquer for providing them for my review!

 Happy nails!☺
