Nail Lacquer UK - Eat My Cake

I've got another new (to me) UK Indie to share tonight! This is Nail Lacquer UK Eat My Cake, a really pretty mix of red square glitter and small pink glitter in a creamy light yellow base. It makes me think of strawberries and custard (or maybe vanilla ice cream, that's a bit more seasonal!).

I used two coats of Eat My Cake over a base of Ilamasqua Load. I probably didn't need the base, but I tend to layer milky glitters out of habit so that I have something to wrap my tips with and I can paint a neat edge without getting glitter all over my cuticles. The application was very easy, the polish went on smoothly with plenty of glitter on every brushful. Yellows like this can be notoriously streaky so I approached this with a bit of care but there were no signs of streakiness. I finished the mani off with one coat of Gelous and a final coat of Seche Vite and as you can see in the pictures its glassy smooth.

I was in the mood for something light, fun and frothy on my nails tonight and this polish fits the bill perfectly! It really does look almost edible!

I'm really impressed with the quality of this polish - I'd certainly buy more from this brand! I purchased Eat My Cake from Nail Laquer Website; she also has a blog and facebook page with updates on stocking and upcoming colours (some of which I have my eye on already).
