Takko Tuesday - Starships

Happy Takko Tuesday!

It is the last Tuesday of the month and Lotte is joining me one more time to share in Takko Tuesday.  My German nail polish love has been featuring Takko Lacquer all month on her blog.  I am so glad she was able to get all of those lovely takkitos swatched!  Today, we are taking a look at another shade from the recent Fall collection.  "Starships" is a gorgeous polish!  I think it is just perfect for fall and winter.  The base is a green to slate duochrome that is packed with shimmer and sprinkled with holographic flecks.  The finish leans more metallic and can show some brush strokes, so apply carefully.  It is pretty darn opaque, too.  Not one of those sheer duochromes you need to layer over black for the best effect.  I am showing you two coats with a glossy top coat in these photos.  The first shot is with straight on light but the last two are with two light sources to show off the duochrome shift better.

Top Shelf Lacquer - Holiday Flake Out Collection

Hi friends!

Today, I have a fun flakie collection from a fairly new to me brand.  I first got acquainted with Top Shelf Lacquer at PolishCon.  Not only do they have wonderful polishes but also very nice bath and body products.  I love the soap!  For the holidays, Top Shelf Lacquer has created a collection a delicious ultrachrome flakie polishes.  There are 12 shades in this collection, 8 jellies and 4 toppers.  They all look different from each other and the jellies shades look amazing.  So capture all of the shifty goodness of these flakies, I took my swatch photos using two different light sources.  I have them at opposing angles to help show off the shifting colors in one shot.  I hope you like them!

Takko Tuesday! - Queen of Hearts

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Today, we are taking a look at another new shade from Takko Lacquer.  And when I say we, I mean me and my German polish love, Lotte!  She has been featuring takkitos on her blog all month long and joining me on Takko Tuesdays.  We are showcasing "Queen of Hearts" which is from the most recent fall collection.  This is not a typical Takko Lacquer shimmer shade.  It has a deep cherry red jelly base and is packed with iridescent, shell like microflakes.  I love a nice jelly polish and am very excited whenever Takko Lacquer creates one.  This application was nice a smooth but slightly sheer with the jelly formula.  I used three thinner coats for these swatches to get a nice cherry finish.  I am showing you what it looks like with both a glossy and matte top coat.  Matte macros are so much fun :)
