Lollipop Posse Lacquer: Midwinter Midnights Collection and the Really Effing Brutal Trio


Black Friday is only four days away and guess who still has roughly 2,957 blogs left to write?  GAH!  After that decades-long post I did on the Indie Brand Collective sale, I accidentally took a one-day blog break and simultaneously gave myself about 17 Polish Emergencies. Well GREAT.  So looks like no sleep for me until the year 2037.  Cuz although the fitness app only has 252 steps on it, I guarantee the sweat bead mustache via a speed blogging frenzy will be at an all-time high.  I swear, if I’m not skinny after this, someone gets a karate chop.  SCIENCE, that means YOU.

Let’s focus, shall we?  Nail polish is happening and you’re first in line.  I’ve got new goodies from Karen with Lollipop Posse Lacquer to share with you today!  Get ready for a dire case of the Grabby Fingers, but try to stay a lady about it at least.


Just kidding.  Ladylike composure = officially out the dadgum window.

This is the Midwinter Midnights collection, a set of 5 sultry, sexy shades that you’re gonna need like a billion times over. Karen says each polish is inspired by a song that brings to mind frosty winter nights, which quite honestly is the only way I take my winter:  in nail polish form, possibly with some flakies on it.  All other forms – brown grass, snow covered in dirty tire tracks, leaving the house in a thousand pounds of sad, unattractive clothing – can not-so-kindly have a seat in the back.  Oh Winter, my evil friend.

But yeah.  These polishes.  They make winter look like not such a bad idea after all.  I mean, maybe by just half a point, but I’ll take 18,000 bottles anyway.  You know, FOR SAFETY.  Here’s your rundown interspersed with Karen’s music inspiration.  We’re about to set a mood, just so you know.


DESCRIPTION:  A metallic silver base packed with red to purple shifting shimmer, silver holographic pigment, flakies and microglitter and red to purple shifting chameleon chrome flakies

OPACITY:  Three coats for me

Roll the windows down / This cool night air is curious / Let the whole world look in / Who cares who sees anything

— Defttones ft. Maynard James Keenan, Passenger


DESCRIPTION:  A green/brown/gold holographic multichrome with sparkling taupe micro flakies

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

So pure / So rare / To witness such an earthly goddess / That I’ve lost my self control / Beyond compelled / To throw this dollar down / Before your holiest of altars

— A Perfect Circle, Magdalena


DESCRIPTION:  A darkened, juicy raspberry magenta holographic creme packed with teal shimmer

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

Venomous voice tempts me / Drains me / Bleeds me / Leaves me cracked and empty / Drags me down like some sweet gravity

— Tool, H


DESCRIPTION:  A dark blue/purple multichrome shifter packed with scattered holographic particles and a smattering of sapphire/purple/red shifting chameleon chrome flakies

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

I come along but I don’t know where you’re taking me / I shouldn’t go but you’re wrenching dragging shaking me / Turn off the sun pull the stars from the sky / The more I give to you the more I die

— Nine Inch Nails, The Perfect Drug


DESCRIPTION:  A rusty red/brown/gold multichrome shifter packed with holographic pigment

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

You move like I want to / To see like your eyes do / We are downstairs / Where no one can see / New life break away / Tonight I feel like more

— Deftones, Digital Bath

For real, y’all.  This collection has left me speechless.  First things first, formulas were perfection.  No issues of any kind, and for that fact alone, we lub them lots.  But those flakies!  DEAD.  That spectacular shiftiness!  MORE DEAD.  All five of these beauties is one very good example why we’ve all got a nail polish problem.  Karen has voodoo’ed everyone.  She done did.

Prices are $11 each except for Some Sweet Gravity – she retails for $10.

In addition to all that business up there, Karen has brought back a Black Friday tradition – the single pours!  These next three shades are ultra exclusive and even more ultra drool-y.  Each color has been mixed and poured one time only, and once they are gone they are gone for good.  AAACK!  Time to panic, in case you didn’t know.

Inspired by the show Metalocalypse from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, each of these polishes were named and themed by Mr. Lollipop himself.   Take a look at what else you’re buying:

Ooooooh!  More sexy!  More sultry!  More swoon-y scenarios!  This is the Really Effing Brutal Trio, three vampy shades for when you want to feel less sweatpants-y but also still be in sweatpants, which is all we ever want out of life anyway.  Although, maybe with some mashed potatoes on top.  I dunno.


DESCRIPTION:  A magenta-leaning crimson packed with blue shimmer and holo sparks

OPACITY:  Two coats, even though one coat covered really well


DESCRIPTION:  A blue/teal/purple multichrome holographic with purple microflakies

OPACITY:  Three coats for me


DESCRIPTION:  A dark grey with touch of steel blue, gold shimmer and blue and purple sparks and microflakies

OPACITY:  Two coats for me

Formulas on these three were consistently good once again, cuz I swear Karen’s got this nail polish thing on LOCK.  Pricing for each is $10, which might as well be free considering how much we’re buying.


Welp. Toss ’em all in the shopping cart. There is no other way.  Cuz getting out of this blog without a crap ton of nail polish?  WRONG times LAME divided by BRAIN MALFUCTION. In other words, God is watching.  Good decisioning is in order, or else.  The deets:

Both of these collections release on Thanksgiving night, November 23 at 11pm EST.  Remember, the single pours are extremely limited edition so don’t go waiting til 11pm and 1 second like a crazy person.  First in line, as previously decided.
