Tryst Lacquers is a Canadian indie. I forget just now how she came to my attention; it was probably either Facebook or Instagram...but despite the prettiness of her offerings, I was thrown off by the shipping costs from here to the U.S.

But such gorgeous swatches kept showing up on my time line; eventually my resistance wore down and I decided to give her a try. I purchased one full size polish and three minis (one of which I haven't tried yet, so no pics of that one).

In general, I found the formula of her polishes to be really easy to work with, even though they're pretty glitter intensive. I didn't have to dab or finesse any of these, the glitter all laid pretty flat, they weren't especially top coat hungry. The downsides were leveling: they didn't self-level especially well, so you have to make sure you're laying it down evenly yourself; and the smell.

Tryst Lacquers have a very strong, chemical smell; stronger than most nail polishes I'm used to, definitely stronger than Kleancolor polishes. In terms of migraine factor, it wasn't nearly as bad as Lurudana's perfumed polish and it didn't linger nearly as long, but I did feel slightly headachy while painting my nails (while the bottle was open).

It's difficult, because the polishes are exceptionally gorgeous...but I suspect the smell is what's keeping me from really wanting to try out the fourth polish I bought. *shrugs*

Anyway. The pics.

Really, my only serious problem with any of these polishes was the smell and, for that reason, I don't know if I'd buy another Tryst Lacquers polish. I'd definitely recommend them to people who have a less sensitive sense of smell than I do, though.
