NOTW - NerdLacquer Don't Blink

This week I've been wearing Don't Blink by NerdLacquer - this is the one I was most excited about trying out of the four I chose. (Again - apologies for the rubbish photos)
The name Don't Blink is a reference to one of my favourite Doctor Who episodes with the terrifying weeping angels. If you haven't seen it, it's one to watch! I love that the colour is a very pale grey, similar to the colour of the angels (which are made of stone - of you aren't a Who geek like I am!).
As with all the NerdLacquer polishes I've tried so far, this one has very very fine silver glitters that shimmer and catch the light as well as slightly larger silver glitters, small silver hex glitters and large silver hex glitters! So much glitter!! It kind of looks like snow! :) I hope you can see in the photos!
The formula of this polish was a little disappointing compared to the others - it was quite weak and I had to stand the bottle upside down for a while so I could get some of the larger hex glitters which have settled near the bottom. I think this one may have worked better with a pale coloured base underneath too, as you can still see my nail even after 2/3 coats.
Overall this is another colour that comes highly recommended from me! It looks SO pretty in real life - I'd never thought to try a colour like grey before but it look surprisingly pretty! Also the last two I used lasted over a week with no chips so I'm positive this colour will have similar staying power. Super impressive!

(I will try to replace these photos with good quality ones as soon as I can twist either Tony or my mums arm for a new camera!!)
