Nerd Lacquer Warrior Ethos

     Ok, quick post today, but can I just say that Etsy nail polish sellers are really hitting it out of the park here lately with all of their amazingly unique concoctions? I will be showing some other new Etsy polish I have soon, but today I am going to show you Warrior Ethos. I ordered Warrior Ethos from Nerd Lacquer a few months ago before I knew how great their polish was, and now their shop on Etsy is closed at the moment, so I hope it reopens soon so I can check out their other polishes.
     Anyway, onto the polish...

     Nerd Lacquer's Warrior Ethos is described as, "a bright, blood red with black, iridescent, copper, and red glitter, plus medium black hexagonal glitter, and large copper hexagonal glitter." It is meant to be opaque in two coats, or used as a top coat over a red polish.
     This polish applies like a jelly, in that it becomes opaque, but still has a visible, "rock-candy" finish. I knew this polish was a jelly, but I wanted to see how it would look over a red creme polish, so I used two coats of Warrior Ethos over one coat of China Glaze Poinsettia. Can I just say that I love this combination???

     What really makes Warrior Ethos unique is the black glitter dispersed throughout. Black and red look great together, and the combination in this polish is no exception. 

     The only negative aspect of Warrior Ethos is that I did have trouble getting some of the larger glitter onto the brush and onto my nails. It did seem to want to stick to the sides of the bottle.

 But check out how pretty the glitter in the bottle

     What do you think about Warrior Ethos? Keep checking back to Nerd Lacquer's shop here to see when it reopens. Have you ever bought nail polish off of Etsy?
