Nerd Lacquer - Hyperspace Bypass

Okay, guys. I have to start by letting you all know that I'm very, very sorry to do this to you. I'm going to show you something really shiny and cool, that you probably won't be able to find (unless you own it already, or buy it for astronomical prices on ebay). 

This is Nerd Lacquer Hyperspace Bypass. 


I LOVE this polish. I think it's insanely freaking cool. And not just because I'm a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This is A Really Neat Lacquer. It's yellow, and sparkly gold, and glittery black, and it's exactly what I'd imagine an galactic taxicab would look like.


It's not what I'd usually think of as a flattering polish, but I really liked how this looked on my nails. Here's a (vaguely related) picture of my galactic taxicab nails with a giant glass planetary-lookin' orb (okay, lawn ornament):


Also unrelated, but because I think it looks cool, here's another picture of the same orb. It glows in the dark! I think it's pretty neat, anyways. Looks like a big swirly planet. Or maybe a bunch of hyperspace bypasses. I'll let you decide.


One last thing to add: let's all hope that Nerd Lacquer returns someday and starts to make super awesome shiny pretty things for our nails again.

    1. I suppose this colour won't appeal to everyone... but I guess the orb does! ;) Haha/

  2. I join your hoping for the return of Nerd Lacquer, I sadly didn't get into my obsession until after she stopped so I've always had to drool from afar. Does that glowing orb on your lawn ever freak you out at night?

    1. Hah, I'm sure it would, but actually this is something I saw while visiting my parents at their house and my mom had only just purchased this but not put it out yet. Hmm. All things considered it might be a bit freaky to look out your window at night and see a hovering glow-in-the-dark globe. UFO? LOL.

    1. Nerd Lacquer was definitely my favourite indie brand- so many great concepts, and her execution was perfect. Just fantastic lacquers!
