Lilypad Lacquer True Blood…. At Last!

June 3, 2015

Let me tell you a little story.

When I ‘discovered’ Australian indies it was around May 2013. Yup, American indies were on my radar first, believe it or not, Aussie’s were my first purchase. I dove in pretty hard. It was a swift love affair.

Some time around then, Lilypad Lacquer released True Blood as part of their Colour My World collection. It was mentally added to my list of polishes I would probably love, only later to discover it was gone. Yes it had been replaced with other versions. But the one I wanted was gone. GONE!

I bought other versions but I wasn’t satisfied. I’m not sure I ever would’ve been satisfied. Isn’t it funny how that works?

Lesson #1- If you think you’ll like a polish, a lot, grab it, own it.

There was a whole heap of shenanigans. And then the hype. The hype-causing inflation. Heck! I just wanted the damn pretty polish already.

Fast forward two years, and I was lucky enough to finally, at long last, get my lucky little hands on a bottle. Relief. Appetite satiated. And was it worth the patience and perserverance?

I have…


Squishy. Jelly. Vampy. Berry. Holo. Iridescense. Depth. Flaming. Rainbow. Dark. Soul Shattering Love. Yes!

Oh yes!

Worth every minute I waited. All (approximately) 1,051,200 minutes.

  • Gorgeous, Chris, and it looks amazing on your nails. I’ve finally done another mani, and I’m over the moon. I was sooooo chuffed when I finally got to post it on my blog. I’ve also had an amazing nail mail and prize-winning day that I can’t believe, but I’ll tell you about everything on my next blog. Thanks for sharing your joy with us. Good things come to those who wait!

    Oh man, that’s the best feeling! I distinctly remember the maniacal shriek I let out when I found OPI Absolutely Alice. I must have looked crazy.

  • Wow, I can’t believe how stunning this is! I’m so glad that your years of waiting was actually worth it and that you now own this beauty for yourself!

  • hahaha – loved the story behind this one. I always get things at the right now, ’cause I know, just know things will somehow get messed up and I’ll go crazy 😉
    That being said, it sure is a gorgeous shade, but I’d have to wear it in the sun all the time (don’t much like the shade look).

    • Yeah holo’s in the shade are a bit meh right?
      I have learnt my lesson well!

  • Oh my gosh! This polish is incredible! I can totally see why you lusted after it for so long. Must feel amazing to finally own it!!

  • This is so gorgeous! I’ve seen so much craziness surrounding this polish that I’ve never gone to the trouble to find it, but man, it is a stunner! I’m glad you were able to kill your lemming!
