Today I have a special polish for Fancy Friday. This polish is near and dear to my heart because last year when I got my Pinterest account and starting stalking nail blogs and building my stash, Nerd Lacquer was the first indie seller I came across. I thought it would be a good fit for Fancy Friday considering how rare and awesome it is and timely with all the Nerd Lacquer "drama" going on. Whatever is going on with Amanda and whatever her reason for taking a break from the nail polish world, let's all cut her some slack. Because I mean, come on, it's the nail polish world. And in the scheme of worlds, sparkle glitter polish not that important. Nerd Lacquer f-ing rules and let's all pray to the nail polish gods that she makes a major comeback.
So, back to my story about Largo. I knew I needed some of her polishes. So I pinned a few and checked out her Etsy. This was back when you could actually think about the indie polishes you wanted and take your time ordering them. Remember those days, girls? I ordered a custom three pack: Regeneration, Don't Blink and Pinin for the Fjords. Maybe a day later, I get a note from Amanda saying that the package will take a few extra days so she was sending me something extra for being patient. Um, the package was at my house in 5 days, maybe 6. No big deal. And the something special? A bottle of polish she was still testing out! A color that was never released! A limited edition, hard to find, never seen before Nerd Lacquer!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm usually too lazy to think up my own color description so I take it off the seller's website but there is no description of Largo so here goes...Largo is a muted grayish green base with small round silver and yellow gold glitter, pale blue hexes, black square glitter and color shifting green to blue square glitter. This polish is sick. Picture time.

Nerd Lacquer is not currently available for purchase. Let's all cross our fingers and send good vibes and hopefully soon we'll get some good news!
