NerdLacquer Cyance Friction

Do you ever get really excited for a nail polish and end up disappointed? That's how I felt about NerdLacquer Cyance Friction. I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with the nail polish, it's very pretty, just not what I imagined!

When I originally saw swatches of Cyance Friction it was one of those must-have polishes for me. Cyance Friction is a beautiful bright blue base with silvery pink shimmer, and bronze (at least I think that color would be called bronze) hexagonal glitter in two different sizes.

The formula is a bit sheer (like most NerdLacquers) but was opaque in three coats, and it dries to an incredibly smooth finish. The photos below are three coats with one coat of Seche Vite topcoat after 3 or 4 days of wear.

I'm not sure why this polish fell flat for me, but I just didn't like how it looked on me. Have you ever been disappointed with one of your must-have polishes?


  1. I'm glad to hear, actually, I missed out on this one in a blog sale...

  2. This is the only Nerd Lacquer I own. I got mine through a blog sale. Now I'm excited to wear it because it's really pretty.

  3. It looks gorgeous on you! Sorry it wasn't what you had hoped for that stinks. I love it on you though very pretty color.

  4. I love it! Just saying, if you ever want to get rid of it, I'll be glad to give it a new home, it's a huge lemming of mine! I also have Hyperspace Bypass and TDBSLWCHSHITD should you prefer to swap :)
