Great Lakes Lacquer Not for Consumption | Polish Pickup February 2018 | Sugar Rush!

Are you ready for the Polish Pickup Sugar Rush? I am excited to be sharing this stunning thermal from Great Lakes Lacquer. I've never been lucky enough to swatch one of her shades before PPU, and this is a great polish to start with...but yall, talk about setting the bar high.

In the cool state this is a cool toned medium purple holo with a coppery rose glow. It applies creamy and delightful, and for some reason I feel really sophisticated and grown-up while wearing it. I get this very velvety, Prince-like vibe...and I love it. I can't explain it, but the second I applied this baby I was in love. Because it has such a creamy formula, I only needed two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for the photos and video shown below.

Here is the inspiration, though I'm not sure where the name comes from. Looking at this picture makes me crave dessert. I think I need to grill some peaches. For science.


It has a soft almost scattered holo. I havent seen the sun in days tried it in daylight yet, but under a flash its a gently dazzling effect.


Once warmed up (thank you Mr. Hair Dryer) it is the prettiest muted rose. It is a little more coppery in natural light, but not too much more. I love it in both states. So much. I didn't realize I was getting to swatch this until the 11th hour, but this baby was on the top of my wish list. I may still buy another.

I'm still rocking the live swatches out! This may be among the last I do with this camera, I've noticed it...waggles a bit in the zoom. Still, you can see the subtle shifty goodness here.



The Polish Pickup starts at 11am eastern today! The first 100 orders get the traditional charm free. I'm excited. Are you excited?

  4. I like this one in both states and that there is such a contrast between colors. I really want to pick this one up but with it being so darn cold here right now with no sign of warming up anytime soon I'm hesitant to order thermal polishes.
