Wacie Wednesday: Deli-Style

While Wacie Wednesday is usually reserved for promoting new Wacie Nail Company products, I’ve decided to share a nail fail this week instead. Deli-Style is a product I promise to never unleash on the public. Except for right now.





Deli-Style is a yellow jelly with fine iridescent glitter and metallic gold dots. It’s the failed result of an attempt at a beer-inspired polish. I was trying to make something that captured the fizzy, wheaty appearance of hefeweizen. Instead I got something that looks like it was meant to be squirted onto a sandwich.




It’s actually not that bad in some lighting. In my office, it looks a bit more like a lemon yellow than a mustard relish. I was actually thinking of renaming it until I went into the studio and saw them under the softbox. It’s still as gross as ever. If there’s anyone who would actually want this polish for themselves, I’d happily make it for you, but I’d also be concerned.

Wacie Wednesday: White Noise

This week on Wacie Wednesday, we’re taking the black and white glitter topper a little farther. I told you I would. White Noise is the newest Wacie Nail Company polish; I’m wearing two coats of it over China Glaze’s Recycle and For Audrey, and Essie’s Check-Up.




White Noise is a glitter topper with black and white shreds and tiny gray hexes. It was designed to evoke an earlier time in technology, a time when you were more likely to encounter it on your TV instead of the black, quiet HDMI mode screen. Originally called “Static”, it was inspired by the sound that greeted us after we turned off the Nintendo to change games. It was sometimes alarmingly loud, always unpleasant to hear. Despite that, turning off the Nintendo to change games and hearing silence isn’t the same.



As you can see, I went a little overboard with the glitter. I probably didn’t need two coats of it, because it covered up the color more than I wanted it to. I believe that’s a fault in my application, not the polish. I wanted to demonstrate the versatility of it by putting it over the light blue and pink. It looks right at home over gray, but it can do so much more over other colors. I’m really pleased with how it turned out.



I’m still looking at labelling samples, and then I’ll start figuring out shipping logistics. I hope that if you like White Noise or some of the other Wacie Nail shades, you’ll be able to purchase them soon.

Wacie Wednesday: Bleeding Heart

It’s Wacie Wednesday! I got a bunch of new glitters and another bottle of lacquer base, so I finished up some prototypes I was working on last week. I’m really excited about these. Let’s do it!





Bleeding Heart is a deep red jelly laden with iridescent and holo glitter hearts. I’m wearing three coats with no undies, and three coats of Seche Vite. As shiny as it looks here, it’s even shinier in person. The glitter shines through beautifully, the jelly is squishy and clear. The hearts blend in more than I thought they would, but they add to the look without overpowering it. I’m in love with this polish. I don’t think I can do any better than this.





I’m getting ever closer to an actual Wacie Nail Company launch. I have a few more prototypes I’ll be sharing with you in the coming weeks; I’m aiming for eight finished polishes as an initial product line. I’m still looking to labelling ideas and a means of producing things in batches, and then I’ll be ready to go. I’m really excited.

Wacie Wednesday: Bridal Bouquet

It’s the first-ever Wacie Wednesday! This is the part of the week where, if I have a new product to share, you’ll get to see it. Yeah, I told you I was serious about making my own polish. This first entry is a little rough, since I’m still missing things like branding, labelling, and a way for you to actually buy it. I’ll get on that soon, I promise. In the meantime, have a look at the very first Wacie Nail Company polish, Bridal Bouquet. It’s awesome, but don’t take my word for it.




Bridal Bouquet is a glitter toppper in a clear base; it contains pink flowers, green shreds, and iridescent hexes. I’m wearing one coat over The New Black’s Black, Essie’s Fiji and Navigate Her. It dries quickly and is easily smoothed down by top coat. I don’t really know what to say about it, other than it’s awesome and I love it. I can’t stop staring at it. The green-to-gold iridescent glitters really stand out on the black polish, and the flowers look great over the green. The light pink flowers blend in a little, but I think that’s okay. I think it still evokes the image of its namesake: soft petals, soft colors, fragrance and beauty. I think I started a nail company just to make this polish.




It’s really exciting to be one step closer, you know? I had the time of my life making this, and I hope I’ll be able to keep doing it for a long while. It would be amazing to have a career where I get to sit in a room with glitter and sparkles and just create things. I almost don’t even care if I make my investment back, just the satisfaction of doing it was, to me, worth the money.




I did a test to see what it looked like over blue. The verdict: awesome! From left to right: Sinful Colors’s Midnight Blue, Essie’s After School Boy Blazer, Julep’s Bess, Color Club’s Chelsea Girl, China Glaze’s For Audrey, Essie’s Turquoise & Caicos, and Bridal Bouquet worn alone.

Yeah, this is the best thing I ever did. If you’re interested in buying a bottle, or just interested in reviewing it, I’ll get the store and press form ready soon. I am absolutely dying to share this with everyone.
