Great Lakes Lacquer Time is a Face on the Water | March 2018 Polish Pickup | Books

Great Lakes Lacquer is back for March's Polish Pickup! Let the people rejoice! The theme this month is Books, so all us nerdy girls and boys are freaking out. It doesn't hurt that the polishes are drop-deap gorgeous.


(promotional samples ahead)

This is a living, breathing icy cornflower shifter filled with tiny magical flakes and sprinkled with diffuse holo sparkle. It a little bit sheer, and I needed three coats for the swatches here. But it builds up without looking thick and weird, so I am a happy camper. It reminds me of mermaid skin.

Did you ever watch the show Charmed? There was an episode where Phoebie turned into a mermaid because...her heart was cold or something. I forget now. But this is what she should have painted her skin with in that episode. It would have been perfect. How dare Mariah not be making polish back in 2003 or whatever.

The inspiration for this stunner is The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. I have never read this series, but in general I like his shorter stories and serials. He tends to ramble less in the shorter books.

How about a wee bit of the old flash to see the pretty holo sparkle?

  1. Icy cornflower is the perfect description. This is soooo beautiful. Anything in the blue/lavander/purple family is my jam.

  2. I’m not really a big fan of cornflower blue, but the purple shift in this makes it extra special.
