Softening the Bad Things by Lucky 13 Lacquer

*Polish reviewed was self-purchased.*

Good morning all! I have a new to me polish brand today: Lucky 13 Lacquer. I first heard about this brand and in particular this polish from Accio Lacquer. Once I read Mish’s post about this polish, I knew I needed to have it. I won’t go into all gory details, but I have struggled with depression and anxiety over the past few years. It is such a hard thing to describe to someone who has never gone through either depression or anxiety but if you’d like to learn, I highly encourage you to read through these comics. I love all those, but this one really spoke to me:


I sometimes have a really hard time expressing what I’m really thinking/feeling, especially to my friends and family. When I read the above “comic”, I just wanted to shout, “YES! This! This is how I feel! Why can’t you see it?!”

After reading Accio Lacquer’s post about this polish, I had to buy it. Lucky 13 Lacquer made a polish, Softening the Bad Things, based off a certain Dr. Who episode with Vincent van Gogh (which I haven’t made it to yet!). It is $1 more than her other polishes because that $1 from each bottle will be donated to the NAMI – National Alliance on Mental Illness.

The polish itself is really gorgeous – a robin’s egg blue, with golden hexes and small black dots. I’ve left it mattified in the picture above – mainly because I didn’t feel like being in a “shiny” mood, if you know what I mean. It applied really nicely, and I had no troubles getting any of the glitters out.

The week that I wore this polish, was a week that I’ve been struggling more so than I usually have been, and every time I looked at my fingers, in some strange way, I felt less alone.

You can find Lucky 13 Lacquers at her shop, and on facebook.

If you struggle with anxiety or depression, please know you’re not alone. Please know that there is someone else who struggles too.

Until the next time,

Be Happy and Buy Polish

  1. It’s a beautiful polish. As someone who knows exactly what you’re going through, I just want to give you a big hug. I’ve come to accept the fact that I will always struggle to find the right balance in my life where I won’t let depression and anxiety take over my life. Some days are harder than others but we’re worth the fight.
