Ninja Polish NerdLacquer Exclusives Swatches and Reviews
As most of you know by now, NerdLacquer is BACK! I am finally getting ahold of some major lemmings that I missed out on a year ago and I’m so giddy it’s ridiculous!
Ninja Polish carries 3 NerdLacquer polishes that are exclusive to her store – Acid of 1000 Fangs, Eight Gates and Smoke Dragon!
As part of my Birthday present, my boyfriend bought me a ton of NerdLacquers. I got 12 from the actual NerdLacquer restock (on NerdLacquer.com) and then another 3 on the NinjaPolish restock!
I took the explanation of each name from the Ninja Polish website and put it under each photo so get a better understanding of the names!
Ok enough rambling – lets see the photos!
Acid of 1000 Fangs:
The Acid of One Thousand Fangs technique (Zeshi Nensan) empowers its user to breathe forth a gout of highly caustic acid at a target. The acid burns flesh, and can melt rock and metal.
Acid of 1000 Fangs is a yellow-green with white microglitter, large and medium chartreuse hexagonal glitter, and neon yellow hexagonal glitter. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for this photo!
The Eight Gates are eight specific points on a person’s chakra circulatory system. They limit the overall flow of chakra (Ki/Chi) within a person’s body. The basis for the idea of the chakra gates comes from the body’s limits on the functions within it. This makes the body much weaker, but it keeps the body from expiring too soon. By opening these gates, the user can surpass their own physical limits at the cost of extreme damage to their own bodies. The eight gates, in order, are: the Release Gate (Kaimon, also “Initial Gate”), the Energy Gate (Kyuumon, also known as the Heal Gate, as releasing it triggers fast healing in the body), the Life Gate (Semon), the Wound Gate (Shomon, also known as the Pain Gate), the Forest Gate (Tomon, also known as the Limit Gate), the View Gate (Keimon),the Insanity Gate (Kyōmon), and the Death Gate (Shinmon). Opening the final gate will grant the user enough strength to surpass a Kage; however, the result of opening the final gate is that all the energy from the openers cells is used up, resulting in the user’s death.The state where all eight gates are opened is called Hachimon Tonk.
Eight Gates is an orchid purple creme with silver microglitter, medium white hexagonal and silver square glitter, plus extra large square black glitter. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for this photo!
The Smoke Dragon (Enryuu) technique allows the user to form smoke into the shape of one or more dragons that engulf a target or targets at the user’s direction. While the smoke dragon has no solid substance, it’s purpose is to cause suffocation from smoke inhalation. The only requirement for the technique is that the user have a source of smoke to manipulate.
This is the one I’ve been dying for all year! Smoke Dragon is a matte deep charcoal with silver, purple and black microglitter, gunmetal medium and large hexagonal glitter, and large black hex glitter. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat, but if you leave the top coat off, it is a matte glitter polish! I just prefer it with a glossy finish!
I understand a lot of people were frustrated with the previous Ninja Polish restock, and honestly – I don’t want to hear any drama about it. I don’t do the whole drama thing. It took me a long time to get on the site and through checkout, just like a lot of other people dealt with. I actually had more in my cart but only was able to check out with these 3. Ninja Polish IS working on it so their next restock should be smoother.
All 3 of these polishes were $10.00 each
Hope you liked these swatches – and with that, I’m off to bed!
