Okay so first up, a confession: This isn’t actually Black Sheep Lacquer First Polish on the Moon. It’s a very similar polish I received in a free mini with my order, but Erin from Black Sheep Lacquer has said she’s willing to make this for anyone who is interested, and like I said it is quite similar to Black Sheep Lacquer First Polish on the Moon.
Anyway, I decided to swatch this polish in 4 different combinations again, by itself (3 coats), then over pink, white and black (2 coats each.) My personal favourite is over pink on my middle finger, but using it over white does bring out the neon aspect.
Like Black Sheep Lacquer First Polish on the Moon, this is a bright pink neon polish filled with small flecks of glitter, though it differs because of the large orange and white hexagons it contains.
This polish is a jelly but you can get it fairly opaque with 3 coats, although you still see a touch of VNL in my photos. I do think it pops better over a coloured base.
I think that I prefer Black Sheep Lacquer First Polish on the Moon (you can see photos of it here) to the similar mini I received because I don’t think the hexagons really add much to the polish and I’m generally not a fan of large glitter. Still, both are really pretty and the formula is really nice.
Some of the Black Sheep Lacquer glitters are a bit thicker but this one, probably because it’s not as fully loaded with glitter as Visions in Blue for example, isn’t and applies quite evenly and nicely although the placing of the large glitter is a bit random and inconsistent, I don’t mind that.
Overall, I’m glad that Erin sent me this little mini to test out and I’ve been really happy with all the Black Sheep Lacquer polishes I’ve tried. This may have been my first foray into indie polishes, but it definitely won’t be my last and I will definitely be picking up more polishes from this brand in the future.
