Takko Tuesday! - Dazed and Confused

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Today is another special Takko Tuesday because I am joined by my German polish sister, Lotte, again.  Yay!  It has been a hot minute that we can done TT together but we are showing some love to the same Takko Lacquer shade today.  "Dazed and Confused" is an older takkito but still very beautiful.  I was able to snag this shifter in a blog sale and was super happy about it.  I am still trying to complete by Takko Lacquer collection and always looking to fill in the holes when I can.

"Dazed and Confused" is a dark, royal blue multichrome with an awesome holographic shimmer.  The base is dark but bright at the same time with a slightly metallic effect.  It shifts from royal blue to deep purple to a coppery red as the angle of the light increases.  This in combination with e holographic sparkle makes it look like an instant galaxy on your nails.

I am showing you two coats with a glossy top coat in these swatches.  I am including shots with different angles and light sources to show off that shift as much as I can.  Photos don't do this one justice, you really need to see shifters like this in person.

As I said before, this shade is an older release but could very well come back in a restock in the future.  As far as I know, this is not a discontinued color.  Be sure to stalk Takko Lacquer's social media for all of the latest info on restocks and new releases.  And be sure to check out Lotte's Takko Tuesday post today.  She will likely show off this color beautifully as she does will all of here reviews.

Powder Perfect Halloween Duo 2016

Hi all!

One of my favorite holidays is coming up!  Halloween is always so much fun.  It is a huge holiday in the States but I don't know how popular it is in other countries.  It must be something of a big deal in Australia, because I have a cute little duo from Powder Perfect being released for Halloween.  This pair of polishes is inspired by the three witch's poem from Shakespeare's Macbeth.  They will be releasing later this week, so here is a little sneak peek for you!

Inspired by the Supernatural for the #31DC2016Weekly

Hi!

I know I am a little late on this week's prompt, but at least I have it for you now!  Being out of town on the weekends really messes with my blogging schedule.  For this prompt, I went with a classic supernatural being, the mermaid.  Everyone loves mermaids.  Mermaid nails, mermaid hair, mermaid fin blankets and pool gear...we see them all.  Who doesn't love The Little Mermaid?  Nobody because it's an awesome Disney classic.  For my mermaid inspired nails, I decided to go with a teal mermaid tail design.

Takko Tuesday! - Lemon Macaroon

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Sorry for falling short on posts this past week.  I was super busy with work and then went to Chicago for The Polish Convention aka PolishCon!  This was the inaugural event and it was a blast.  I met so many polish people and brought home a huge haul of exclusive indie polishes.  I sported a Takko Lacquer manicure to the event.  Gotta represent!

So, for Takko Tuesday today, we are looking at an oldie but a goodie.   I snagged "Lemon Macaroon" in a blog sale a little while ago.  It is an older, original takkito but still had a smooth formula.  The base is a pale yellow jelly with a touch of green.  There is a golden microfleck shimmer and shifty red/orange shimmer.  It is definitely yellow but can look more green in certain lights.   The formula is a little on the sheer side but not terribly streaky as most yellow polishes can be.  I am showing you three coats with a glossy top coat.  I dig it!

This color is not available at the moment.  It may make a return in the future as Sheryl likes to bring back older shades from time to time.  This week, Takko Lacquer is having a restock.  You can get the anniversary polishes and popular summer and fall shimmers.  Restock is Sept 23rd!

Takko Tuesday! - Ask Alice

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Today, I have a quick little takkito post to share with you.  "Ask Alice" is the last creme polish in the Curiosities and Exquisites Collection to share with you.  The collection started this summer and is an ongoing group of creme polishes and top coats from Takko Lacquer.  It will be added to over time with additional cremes/toppers as the months go on.  "Ask Alice" is a bright light blue creme polish with a great formula.  This light color is surprisingly opaque.  I applied two coats with a glossy top coat for this swatch.  Last month, I showed you this color underneath the 18k White Gold Top Coat.  It really is a beautiful blue.

This color is currently out of stock on the Takko Lacquer online store but feel free to check any of the stockist sites.  There is a restock planned for September  23rd with several fall and summer faves.  The Curiosities and Exquisites Collection should be restocked and be in stock more often as it is a continuous collection.
