ALIQUID Lacquer: A Pun On Teal

Hi everyone!  Are those of you in cold parts of the world holding up okay?  I normally don't mind winter, but after all these highly inconvenient snowstorms, I'm really looking forward to spring!  Beautiful, brightly-colored polishes are starting to make an appearance, and this colorful offering from ALIQUID Lacquer is not to be missed!

A Pun On Teal features matte white, blue, purple, pink, green, and red glitters in a teal crelly base.  This is a very bright, happy, and unique polish!  For the most part, the formula was good, though I occasionally had trouble with the glitters wanting to bunch up together (a quick "smoosh and spread" with the brush fixed them right up).  It reaches full opacity in 2-3 coats.  Dry time was average.

Please note that this polish tends to photograph bluer than it actually is.  The first photo seems to be more color-accurate.
