Takko Tuesday! - 2017 Sample #2

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Sorry for the short absence.  I was busy with the holidays and work and...just needed a little break.  But I am back with more little Takko Lacquer gems to share.  With no new Takkitos out to share, I am working through swatching some picks from the Black Friday sale and scores from destashes.  This week, we will look at a sample polish from the Black Friday sale.  During the sale this past Thanksgiving, there were mystery bags with 3 unreleased polishes available.  These polishes were batches of polishes that were made as precursors to shades that were later tweaked and released or from shade that just never made it to full production.  They are all still beautiful and worth sharing.  So let's take a look at 2017 Sample #2!

Takko Lacquer - 2017 Sample #2 - McPolish

2017 Sample #2 is a deep slate grey crelly base that is packed with fine shifting glass fleck microflakie shimmer.   The shimmer shifts from bright blue to purple to pink at an angle.  I like the combo of blue and grey here.  It is perfect for the stormy winter days we have been having all over the country lately.  The formula was quite nice and not too thick with all of the flakies.  I am showing you two coats with glossy top coat here.

The first three photos were taken under a single light source.  These next two photos were taken under two light sources at different angles to show off the shift of the microflakie shimmer.  In real life, the shift was quite apparent.

Since this was a sample shade, I do not know if this will be available again for purchase.  But I do not believe Takko Lacquer has released and similar shade of this.  So, it is possible that we could see this or something similar in the future.  If you want to snag this shade, be sure to scour destash sales.  In the meantime, pay attention to the Takko Lacquer social media for news on new releases and restocks.

Takko Tuesday! - To Infinity & Beyond

Happy Takko Tuesday!

I hope you all had a love holiday!  Mine was short and busy but still nice.  Today, I have another older Takko Lacquer shade that I scored in an awesome destash.  I am not exactly sure when "To Infinity & Beyond" originally released, but it has been a few years now.  I think it is a great color to wear in the winter.  It's a little grey and drab but has a nice duochrome effect.  You know I love grey polishes!

Takko Tuesday! - 2017 Sample #1

Happy Takko Tuesday!

I have something a little different to share with you all today.  For the Black Friday sale this year, Takko Lacquer had a limited number of sample bags for sale.  There were three random polishes in each bag that were previous samples or unreleased polishes from the year.  Some of the shades were never before seen polishes and some of the shades for prototypes for polishes that were released with different elements.  The selection was random for each package.  I was able to snag some sample shades and wanted to share them with you all!  "2017 Sample #1" is a shade that was nor previously released.  Hopefully, we will see something similar to this polish in the future!

KBShimmer - Holo-Day Collection 2017

Hello all!

Boy...December has been crazy busy for me.  I am sure you are all in the same boat, too.  The Holidays always seem to creep up quickly.  I just had to share this awesome new collection from KBShimmer with you though.  It is a holiday collection, but these shades are totally awesome for year round wear.  Plus, all of them have holographic bits of fun which are always appreciated.  Let's take a look at the Holo-Day Collection!

Takko Tuesday! - I Love Rock & Roll

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Sorry, I did not have any takkitos to share with you last week.  Not only was I completely out of new takkos to share but I was also on a little jaunt to NYC to see some music.  And I got to see our lovely Takko Lacquer mistress, Sheryl!  She's the sweetest :)  On my little trip to New York, I was witness to some epic rock and roll.  If you guys dig old school bluesy rock with amazing vocals, do yourself a favor and check out 'Greta van Fleet'.  They were phenomenal!  I came home to a much anticipated packed of a huge destash score.  I grabbed up some old Takkos that I have needed to completely my collection and I wanted to share one with you today.  Because I love rock and roll!
