I’ve been busy over here getting so many early July release posts together, and this afternoon I have another one ready! Gunpowder Lacquer is a new indie brand and their debut collection is the Sunshine and Whiskey collection!
Gunpowder Lacquer has a country western flare and is all about being strong, but feminine. This collection is all about fun! Whether you’re on the beach, fishing in a boat or driving down a dirt road singing your favorite songs.
Let’s take a look at this 7 piece debut collection!
Gunpowder Lacquer Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a barbie pink creme holo with very subtle gold shimmer. I used 2 easy coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.
Gunpowder Lacquer Drivin Me Paisley
Gunpowder Lacquer Sunshine and Whiskey Collection Drivin Me Paisley Swatch
Drivin Me Paisley is a pink toned neon lilac with blue shimmers and subtle holo. I am in love with this shade of pink! I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Gunpowder Lacquer Floatin Trailer Park

Floatin Trailer Park is an aqua blue holo creme with a slight blue iridescence. This is my favorite of the collection. If you can only grab 1 polish from the Sunshine and Whiskey collection – this one should be it. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Til I Sea You Again is a vibrant blue holographic. The base is more of a crelly type base that reached full opacity in just 2 coats.
Gunpowder Lacquer Sunshine and Whiskey Collection Overview
This is quite the debut collection! All 7 shades are beautifully done and the formulas were good.
Originally I did have slight thickness issues with Meet Me In Margaritaville and Sundaze. I emailed the maker to let her know and so far the ladies from California found Sundaze to be a little thick and MMIM was ok until their 3rd coat. After several emails back and forth (which I will say she was incredibly receptive to and not at all defensive!) she will be thinning those 2 shades out just a little – but we both think it’s the heat we’ve been experiencing here (high 90’s to low 100’s) messing with my polishes. To accommodate higher temps though she is thinning them a bit before they go out. I did want to add this in for full disclosure though and to let you all know she was incredibly sweet to deal with and completely open to listening to me regarding those 2 bottles.
I personally added just a few drops of thinner to my bottles of Meet Me In Margaritaville and Sundaze and they went on perfectly fine after doing so. I had no formula issues with the other 5 shades, and once thinner was added to MMIM and Sundaze, they went on beautifully as well.
