NerdLacquer Smoke Dragon from the exclusive Ninja Polish Ninja Trio

Buckle up guys, today I have some really cool things to show you!

First of all, I would like to share a new shop with you - Ninja Polish!

Ninja Polish was created by a couple of dear polish friends of mine, Rhonni from Polish Ninja and Stephanie from Packer Lacquer. This brand new shop carries Nail-venturous Nail Lacquer, A-England, Ludurana, HITS, Jessica, NerdLacquer, Glitter Gal, Ozotic, piCture pOlish, Rivka and more. The main goal of the site is to offer a place where people can go to get hard to find or international polishes at incredibly reasonable prices. I'm really excited and know I will be shopping there frequently. :)

Okay, on to the polish! NerdLacquer created the Ninja Trio, a set exclusive to the Ninja Polish store, and I have one of them to show you today. Information about the other two, Eight Gates and Acid of One Thousand Fangs, can be found on the shop page.

From the site:
Smoke Dragon is a matte deep charcoal with silver, purple and black microglitter, gunmetal medium and large hexagonal glitter, and large black hex glitter. A mystic beauty in its native matte form, and equally magical with a gloss top coat...which will bring out an extra bit of violet shimmer.
YOU HEAR THAT!? BLACK GLITTER! All photos show two coats with topcoat -- sorry I'm not sorry, I just love that even look and the shine! :) These first four pics are in direct lamp lighting to mimic sunlight.

And here are some photos of it in diffused lamp lighting -- this is closer to what it looks like indoors.

Finally, I'm no Fashion Polish, but I tried to get a nice macro of this for you guys because it's just so cool. P.S. My pointer nail isn't way shorter, it's just tilted upwards!

Smoke Dragon was super easy to apply and had nice, even coverage. The only thing I struggled with a little bit was getting the bigger glitter pieces out to show you guys. It did dry semi-matte, but I think topcoat is the only way to go with this, as the purple shimmer is practically invisible otherwise.

I would also like to note that this polish has a lovely green shimmer in certain lighting, but no matter what I tried I could not get it to show up in pictures like I wanted it to. You can see glimpses of it at times, but it is much more visible than my pictures would lead you to believe.

NerdLacquer Smoke Dragon sells for $10 on the Ninja Polish website. It is currently sold out (whoa) but you can sign up to be notified when it is restocked on the product listing page.

This product was sent to me for review.

  8. Amazing color and how awesome that you get to show off one of her new polishes!! Of course now I will be stalking that site and her on Google+!!! I must say this is a MUST have polish for me, the color the name just perfection. I wonder if the other sites will be getting it to like her etsy store, thinkgeek and llarowe.

  9. hmmm I did some reading on Ninja Polish about Smoke Dragon and 2 other colors that are exclusive to them. So I answered my own question >_<

  14. Yaaay black glitter! It looks like granite. Awesome. I was so bummed when I read that "Ninja" Polish was a blogger shop -- there's a cheap-ish jewelry/accessory store here called Ninja, and I thought for a second that I could get this shade locally! :C No such luck. :P

  15. Hardly anything left at Ninja, but I got some goodies.

  16. This is gorgeous, and I will be ordering it for sure.
