Aquanet is Charged Up!

Today I have a fantastical polish from Hot Mess Lacquers (the name alone is full of win) called Aquanet.  Being a child of the 80s, I'm deeply familiar with the brand Aquanet, the only hair spray able to allow my hair to defy gravity on a daily basis.

I started off with 2 coats of Orly Charged Up.  Now this was a mini and it blew.  I assume it was because it was a mini polish?  I don't know, but what a giant pita.  Streaky, hard to be opaque, etc.  If I had been home I would have gone with a different base, but I was limited to the polishes I brought with.

I put one coat of Aquanet over top (at least I think it was one, it may have been two, being a beach bum has fried my brain). What a beauty this baby is, look at those large squares and hexes.  It is suspended in a purple jelly base, but I wanted some underwear to conserve this beautiful polish.

I had no application issues with Aquanet.

I'm definitely a fan of Hot Mess Lacquers!  I plan on more of their polishes being part of my polish family very soon.

Close up!

Hot Mess Lacquers can be purchased at their Etsy store.  I have also seen a few of them on Copious! Orly can be purchased at Ulta or Sally Beauty Supply.

  1. Since I love purple, I am obviously a fan of this manicure:) ...and I used my fair share of Aquanet too! I had some pretty awesome bangs and wings going on. lol, OMG.

  2. Very pretty! The smell of Aquanet smells like purple, if purple has a smell ;-)
