Great Lakes Lacquer Bleeding Teal

Great Lakes Lacquer and Traci of Newsie Nail Novice have teamed up to make something amazing. Stunning. Crazy, brain-dazzling, breathtaking. Oh..and did I mention it was the perfect teal? Yeah...even if you aren't a sports fan, you'll be cheering for this shade.

Traci is actually an "in real life" pal of mine. She is the sweetest, nicest girl you could hope to meet. She is also a huge, raving, rabid San Jose Sharks fan. So it is no surprise to see this flawless teal as her shade.

This is a deep blue-green teal (duh) linear holo filled with gold and multichrome flakes. There is even a warm glow when you look at this in low light. The formula is totally goldilocks here. Not too thick, which can be a problem when you have this many flakes...but not too thin that it can't hold the flakes in their place. If Goldilocks was a Sharks fan, she'd be wearing this. 

I used two normal coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures. I bet if I tried, I could do a single coat...but you would lose some of that luminosity in the process.

This shade is available starting 01 November in the Great Lakes Etsy shop*. It is definitely worth bringing home, and it is a must-have for Sharks fans. Thanks, Traci and Mariah, for letting me share this shade. It definitely is going to get a lot of traction this season. My house is also a Sharks family.


*Update: Great Lakes Lacquer is moving! You can find the shiny new site Here.
