Nine Zero Lacquer Spam

Hey howdy hey!

Today, I have some swatches from Nine Zero Lacquer. If you don't know, this is the new brand of nail polish brought to you by prolific nail vlogger, jessFACE90 from YouTube. After seeing all of the great swatches on Instagram of her Harvest Festival Fall Collection, I just had to check out her lovely polishes. I haven't yet gotten an entire collection from her, but I know at some point when the funds allow, I will, because she's done an amazing job with her polishes, and the quality is evident.

Over the past month, I've been grabbing just a few polishes from various collections. I've loved every single one I've tried, and you will, too!

First up, from the Harvest Festival Fall Collection is Pumpkin Everything. This is a nice muted orange linear holographic shade. It's such an interesting shade of orange, and it's perfect for the season. I've worn it alone and I've stamped designs over it. This is one of the few polishes that I swatched and wore again during the season just because I liked it so much. This had a very nice formula that was easy to work with, and it was opaque in two coats.

 Just look at that holo!

Also from the very same collection, is Cricket, which is a black linear holo. This one had a great formula as well, and I used two coats here. I love this polish. I got a lot of compliments on it, most surprisingly, from my mom who really isn't a fan of dark nail polish, but liked the pretty holo sparkle.

Jess also came out with a Halloween trio, which I liked, but as I was just dipping my toe into the Nine Zero pool, I ordered just one of the polishes, and I wish I'd gotten all three now. This is Holo-ween, which has orange holo glitter in an orange base. This dries with a texture, so if you want a smoother finish, you'll need a couple layers of top coat. The formula for this one was easy to work with. I used two coats for the photos below. I wish I could've truly captured just how beautiful this one is in person, but I'm working on the whole lighting thing.

Next up is an offering from the Thanksgiving 2015 Collection. You don't often see a Thanksgiving collection, and I, for one, love that Jess came out with this, because Thanksgiving is second to me after Halloween, and I feel like every year, it gets less and less love in favor of rushing right into the Christmas season. There were three polishes that came in this collection, but I only bought one. This is Stuffed, and I love this because this unique glitter reminds me of sparkly stuffing. It's so pretty! It has a clear base with warm yellow gold, cranberry, burnt orange holo glitters, and I'm sure another color or two I'm missing, but it is truly lovely. I used two coats for the photos, but I could've maybe done a third. The first coat was not super packed with glitter, so you actually could use this as a topper, but it can get opaque in two-three coats, and you can wear it on its own, too. Either way, it looks great.

Last, and certainly not least, we have what will probably be my favorite polish of the holiday season, Twinkle Lights. This is from the Holiday 2015 collection. This is a silver holo base with transparent multi-colored glitter. SO FREAKING GORGEOUS! I don't have anything like this, and I don't know that I've seen anything like this, but it is just amazing. This had a nice formula. Little sheer on the first coat, but it built up just fine. I used three coats for the photos below. 

Overall, I am really loving this brand so far, and I can definitely see myself buying more from Jess. Her polishes are stunning, well made, and customer service is great. This is polish made with love from someone who knows their polish, and knows what lacquerheads crave. Except for Holo-ween, the rest of these polishes are still available on the Nine Zero website. They retail for $9.50 each, with discounts if you buy the entire collections. She also offers different base coats and top coats, including a neat holo top coat to make any of your polishes sparkle and shine.
