Purchase: Lights Lacquer
For those of you who don’t know; a few years ago YouTuber Kathleen Lights created her own nail polish brand, KL Polish. I actually reviewed most of KL Polishes releases and was saddened when she decided to part ways with the company and they closed for business. Kathleen has moved on and created Lights Lacquer which I was a bit more hesitant to jump in on with how abruptly KL Polish ended. However, when Lights Lacquer Cold Turkey Nail Polish was released as a holiday limited edition, I had to jump on at least this polish. Let’s see how it holds up.
About Lights Lacquer Cold Turkey Nail Polish
The full-size Cold Turkey nail polish has 12 mL of product, has a rounded flat brush, is a dusty blue-grey, and retails for $9.50. The Cold Turkey Nail Polish can be purchased at Lights Lacquer.
Lights Lacquer claims that the Cold Turkey nail polish has a creme finish, is long lasting, and highly pigmented. They also claim that Cold Turkey is a self-leveling nail polish. Lights Lacquer polishes come in a rectangle bottle with a round handle.
Lights Lacquer Cold Turkey Nail Polish Review
I really liked the Cold Turkey nail polish. All of the claims were right on. This does dry down to a creme finish which works really well with a regular top coat (above) or a matte top coat (below). I found that this wore on me for almost a full week before chipping and that was with the Rapid Dry Top Coat and not a top coat made for performance. I think one of my favorite things about the formula of Cold Turkey is that it dries down super fast, which means less time for smearing. As you can see this was highly pigmented, it is mostly opaque in one coat and I only put on two to even out my strokes.
If you’ve seen any of my KL Polish reviews, if not they’re here, then you can probably tell that the packaging and wand for Lights Lacquer are pretty much the exact same as KL Polish. In all honesty it feels like Kathleen got in with a group of investors, they had a disagreement, she found another group of investors, they put out the EXACT same products under a different name. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that she’s back putting out polishes because the brush, handle, and formula are some of my favorites. However, I’m not a fan of how this was handled especially for those of us who bought just about everything even when we may not have been able to afford it. It just shows a level of monetary privilege that if it were someone else we’d be raging about *shrug*
Final Thoughts on the Lights Lacquer Cold Turkey Nail Polish
Ultimately if you should purchase this polish is going to come down to your personal feelings. If you like a good polish formula and you don’t care about the shenanigans of those behind the brand, then you’re going to want to pick up quite a few of the Lights Lacquer polishes. However, if you’re someone who doesn’t like to support a brand due to the things that the brand owner may say/do then you may want to skip Lights Lacquer, at least in my opinion. I will say though, they did get better about the shipping; this one was wrapped in two layers of bubble wrap instead of tissue paper before being put in a padded envelope instead of a paper padded envelope -.- :’)
