Random Chat

Unbelievably, it has been almost a year since we've posted one of these. Jess just never remembers to save the chats. She shall try to remedy that!

This conversation has been edited slightly, mostly to remove the excessive swearing that occurs when the two of us get together lol.

Dana (3:27:48 AM): hey
Jess (3:28:02 AM): hi
Dana (3:28:25 AM): what's up kiddo
Jess (3:29:04 AM): remember that lacquerous website, the one where you rent polish. did you ever get in?
Jess (3:29:09 AM): cause check your email if not
Dana (3:29:19 AM): no, i didn't. and lol ok
Dana (3:30:28 AM): i didn't get anything. why?
Jess (3:31:04 AM): I did. I'm in. And don't feel bad at all. Because there's only 66 polishes there. And a lot are not hard to find or expensive
Jess (3:31:11 AM): they got a bunch of OPI shatters ffs
Dana (3:31:13 AM): LOL ok. then I won't feel bad
Dana (3:31:29 AM): 15 dollars a month when they only have 66 polishes?!?
Jess (3:31:45 AM): Exactly. And that's the version where they send you what they wanna send you.
Dana (3:31:52 AM): ...eff that.
Jess (3:31:57 AM): If you actually want to choose your polishes, it's like three dollars more
Dana (3:32:00 AM): I could do better than that with my effing stash
Jess (3:32:10 AM): You can log in as me and look around if you want.
Jess (3:32:14 AM): but right now, totally not worth it
Dana (3:32:21 AM): thanks. I'll check it
Jess (3:32:47 AM): I also don't trust them. I read ONE blog post, from like a year ago, that has semi false advertisement.


Jess (3:32:56 AM): http://lacquerous.tumblr.com/post/26355943429/luxury-vs-drugstore
Jess (3:33:15 AM): scroll down between the two images
Jess (3:33:33 AM): see where they're saying about drugstore polish not being 3-free?
Jess (3:33:54 AM): china glaze is 3 free
Dana (3:33:56 AM): right. How many of them AREN'T 3 free anymore.
Dana (3:33:58 AM): right.
Jess (3:34:08 AM): Rimmel london is FIVE free
Dana (3:34:35 AM): like zoya, yeah. And I wouldn't exactly call China Glaze a drugstore brand anyway. Sally Hansen, sure.
Jess (3:35:07 AM): They're fakers. They got some polish I never heard of, a lot of stuff I own, and nothing I'd want to try first
Dana (3:35:30 AM): also, it's bull that the designer colors are more on-trend. Dior might match the Dior collection exactly, but I ain't exactly buying Dior clothes either.
Jess (3:35:53 AM): I feel a blog post coming on lol
Dana (3:36:01 AM): LOL DO IT DO IT DO IT
Dana (3:36:14 AM): they have Private Dancer and OPI White Shadow. I have both of those.
Dana (3:36:49 AM): i have bitches brew. you probably have book of shadows from cirque
Jess (3:37:01 AM): nope.
Jess (3:37:22 AM): I love them but don't buy there often because they're too expensive for my tastes most of the time. When she has a sale, sure
Dana (3:37:56 AM): lol this is totally not worth it. it's a brilliant idea, but you better have EVERYTHING Dior has put out. And everything that I refuse to buy just because of the price. Where's the Lynderella
Dana (3:38:32 AM): and all the OPIs are shatters except one. where's the san francisco collection?!?
Jess (3:38:38 AM): lol seriously
Dana (3:38:59 AM): Dude, you and I together could do better than this.
Jess (3:39:50 AM): LOL Hell, between us we could offer like over a thousand choices
Dana (3:40:00 AM): good. now I can put it out of my head and be done. AND THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING
Jess (3:40:42 AM): God, I was all excited when I saw the email, got there and went wait...I own most of these... lol
Dana (3:41:02 AM): LOL another good idea down the drain
Jess (3:42:20 AM): well. Yanno, I kinda hope not. Maybe they're in a transition. maybe they're only allowed to offer a polish for so long. who knows. I'm looking at other places and while it's cutting it close, older blogs say they had over 70 at one point. maybe it'll get better. one can hope
Dana (3:42:45 AM): yeah, maybe. and maybe they didn't buy enough of certain colors and once it's gone it's gone
Dana (3:43:05 AM): although I'd think you'd buy 4 or 5 of each one if it seemed popular
Jess (3:43:19 AM): You'd think
Dana (3:43:44 AM): I'm just sayin'. Don't promote yourself for being the most on-trend and then have OPI shatters from 3 years ago but none of their current collection
Dana (3:43:59 AM): not even any liquid sands from last year!
Jess (3:44:10 AM): lol
Jess (3:44:54 AM): I'm not even going to bother writing anything. I'm screenshotting the list of polishes, then putting this conversation in there lol
Dana (3:45:07 AM): LOL ok
Jess (3:46:30 AM): Maybe their stuff broke in shipping. Or got taken lol
Dana (3:46:38 AM): Good god, I just read back. And I swear a lot
Jess (3:46:44 AM): LOL I'll edit
Dana (3:46:47 AM): :D
Jess (3:47:57 AM): only one of them actually caught my interest and lol you can just make it for me so why bother
Dana (3:48:09 AM): which one is that?
Jess (3:49:25 AM): lol I can't find a swatch of it
Dana (3:49:35 AM): lol which polish. i'll look at the bottle
Jess (3:50:42 AM): Iconic is the brand. Midnight in paris is the name.
Dana (3:50:52 AM): it's pretty.
Jess (3:50:57 AM): Midnight In Paris is a black with silver and gold flecks of shimmer.
Jess (3:51:02 AM): that's the description
Jess (3:51:12 AM): simple. and not worth me paying a subscription lol
Dana (3:51:21 AM): god, no. not for one use
Jess (3:51:30 AM): I just can't find a swatch
Jess (3:52:07 AM): Although I just found a sinful colors I actually really want
Dana (3:52:19 AM): oh, nice. which one is that?
Jess (3:52:26 AM): leather loose?
Jess (3:52:33 AM): If I ever saw that in the store I went right by it
Dana (3:52:38 AM): that might be in the current collection that's out now.
Jess (3:57:30 AM): Regardless, I'm not tearing up anyone's brand. I just don't see why that is "luxury" polish
Jess (3:58:42 AM): Or even Nars. Or OPI
Dana (3:59:05 AM): no, I know. And it's not. I think someone just decided their personal pile of colors was a great place to start
Dana (4:04:52 AM): k. I was just going through my nail polishes from the other day. I didn't pick up any of the Leather Luxe collection although I did look at it
Jess (4:05:16 AM): eight times four plus 2
Dana (4:05:20 AM): 34
Jess (4:05:31 AM): that's how many are actually available to try right now on lacquerous lol
Jess (4:05:57 AM): I'm gonna hafta go look then. I think I need that. the first sinful colors I actually need lol
Dana (4:05:57 AM): so..that makes 32 of the 66 out for use? that's 11 whole subscribers
Jess (4:06:25 AM): I saw that display, too
Jess (4:06:40 AM): for some reason I thought it was a texture and didn't look
Dana (4:06:45 AM): they're matte finish, to look like leather.
Dana (4:07:07 AM): I wish I HAD looked at 'em. I love that Cold Leather, too
Dana (4:07:13 AM): and Get It On is nice
Jess (4:07:37 AM): guess I'm going back to walgreens lol
Dana (4:07:44 AM): LOL me too
Dana (4:07:53 AM): there's a tiny part of me that wants to climb in my car and go right now
Jess (4:08:00 AM): also, while I'm effing with this, can you find me those good pics of the fingrs display again please?
Jess (4:08:06 AM): I'm not. don't care that much lol
Dana (4:08:06 AM): sure
Dana (4:09:07 AM): they're that girl Oh Three Oh Four's
Jess (4:09:09 AM): ohhh
Jess (4:09:13 AM): thank you. I dunno why we don't have them here yet
Dana (4:09:24 AM): i dunno. maybe they haven't come out there, or maybe they're already gone

Dana (4:13:48 AM): who are some other polish blogger types. i'm trying to follow them so maybe they'll add us to their feed

Personal note from Jess,
Here is a screenshot of Lacquerous's current full inventory (click the link below each image if you want to then zoom in and see the names):



And the polishes available right now to try out:
In other words, all the "good" ones are gone. Wait list. I was really expecting a much better selection. It does say Beta on it, so I'm hopeful about where it goes. But after waiting this long to get in...yep, sad wabbit.

Are you a member of Lacquerous? What do you think of it so far? Still on the wait list? Anywhere near as disappointed as we were? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
