Purchase: Night Owl Lacquer
It was a normal day and I was doing what I normally do, interacting with other beauty bloggers/YouTubers posts and videos. I ran across some swatches of some Night Owl Lacquer polishes (which I of course purchased) and I decided to shop the site a bit and see if there was anything else I wanted to pick up. I’m glad I did because I stumbled across the BEST polish I’ve seen, the Night Owl Lacquer Radioactive Nail Polish is a polish I’ve been looking for for over 15 years! Let’s hope it holds up to that standard.

Night Owl Lacquer Radioactive Nail Polish Review
Per usual, let’s talk about the packaging before we get to the polish itself. As I said above, Night Owl Lacquers come in a glass bottle that is square shaped with a rounded lid/handle, and their logo on the front. I personally like the look of the bottle and feel that it looks good on display on a vanity, Helmer, or desk but they also store well inside of a Helmer. The only issues I’ve found with the shape of the bottles is that they don’t fit well in the nail polish carry case that I have which is no real loss to me. As for the brush, it’s not my favorite brush in all the land, that sadly goes to KL Polish. However, it isn’t my least favorite brush in all the land, that sadly goes to the original Zoya brushes. That basically means this is your average brush that does a pretty decent job of applying polish evenly without looking to streaky.
As for the polish itself, this is the exact color I’ve been looking for since I was 14. I went and got my nails done for the only time in my life at a nail salon and I picked this color. I’ve never been able to find the exact right duplicate for that manicure in retail, until now. This shade isn’t to yellow, making it look like a lighter, but it’s not to green either. It’s the perfect balance! As for application, Radioactive applied well, wasn’t streaky, dried down pretty fast, and didn’t chip for at least four days. As for top coats, the photo above the packaging review is Radioactive with glossy top coat and the photo right above this text is Radioactive with a matte top coat. They both applied the same over Radioactive and neither compromised the lasting power of it.
Final Thoughts on the Night Owl Lacquer Radioactive Nail Polish
If Radioactive is a color that you like then yes I think you should get it. However, if it isn’t then I suggest that you go and get another one of their polishes because this is my second and I’ve loved both. As a matter of fact I may have like four more Night Owl Lacquer polishes coming up in the next few weeks of Mani Monday posts! For around $7/each you can’t really beat picking up one of these polishes!
