NerdLacquer: Cyance Friction

Hey!   I've got an oldie but a goodie for you guys today:  the very popular NerdLacquer Cyance Friction!  I'm so glad I scored this in the last restock because it truly lives up to the hype.

Cyance Friction is a bright teal creme loaded with vibrant, purpley-pink shimmer.  It also features several sizes of copper hex glitter and small teal square glitter.  The teal glitters appear to be curled, but I think it's just reflective curling, not physical curling.  It's a beautiful polish!  The formula was nice, though it's on the thinner side, so you'll want to be careful not to overload the brush and flood your cuticles.  Dry time was average.  I used 2 coats.

Also, I just want to say that I'm sorry about the quality of these photos.  I had a very hard time getting accurate pictures.  I don't know if it's me, my camera, the ridiculously intense sunlight, or what, but it just didn't go well  :-( .  Additionally, I tried making some slight color corrections (my photos were all very blue, while Cyance Friction is teal), but that didn't go perfectly, either.

NerdLacquer polishes cost $10 for 15mL and are sold on NerdLacquer's online store, Ninja Polish, and Harlow & Co.  To stay up-to-date on NerdLacquer, keep an eye on the brand's Google+ page.

  1. That's so gorge!

    I feel your camera frustrations. I am currently using a very old Fuji FinePix A500. It is a workhorse but it is eight years old and can't deliver the goods that we bloggers want, nowadays. I have a new point and shoot on the way, should get it soon. And I am still lusting after a DSLR, one day. :)

    1. Thanks!

      I'm using a Kodak EasyShare C140 purchased about 5 years ago lmao >.< . It has moments where it miraculously gets a nice shot (I think my swatches of Indigo Bananas Rez may have been its finest moment), but then it also has moments where it's just horrible. I'm planning to get a Canon Powershot SX50 HS before the end of the year. A DSLR would be nice, but I'm afraid I'd never be able to figure out all the settings and such!
