Takko Lacquer - Créateur

Another delicious Takko for you all!

Well...I just can't get enough of Takko Lacquer.  I love every single bottle I own.  This stunner, Créateur, was sent to me from the creator to review and swatch.  I has been eyeing this one since it's release and was never able to get my grabby hands on it.  It's soooooooo gorgeous!  It has a black base with a stunning golden shimmer along with a moderate linear holographic effect.  The gold shimmer really softens the black base and so it looks more dark brown on the nail (which I really love).  I used two coats with a glossy top coat for these photos.

Stunning right?!?!  And perfect for fall.  You can get Takko Lacquers from the main site and from Llarowe.  Restocks are tricky, so be sure to set your alarms.  These takkitos move fast!  I hear there is going to be a restock and release of new colors at the end of the month.  I am not sure which polishes are going to be restocked...but you pretty much need them all so just grab what you can.  Ha!

Much Love!

Takko Lacquer - Aphrodisiac

More Takkitos for you!

Today I have another gorgeous shimmer from Takko Lacquers to share with you all.  Takko Lacquers have some of the greatest shimmers out there and this polish is no exception.  So here is Aphrodisiac!  It's a gorgeous salmon coral with a golden shimmer throughout.  An extra bonus is a scattering of delicate gold flakies!  So pretty and delicate!  I used two coats with top coat for this manicure.

Morgan Taylor 2014 Summer Neon Collection

I'm really excited to share these Summer neons with you. If you aren't familiar with Morgan Taylor yet, be prepared to be blown away by these awesome pops of color!

Watt Yel-looking At?
The perfect neon yellow that is brighter than the sun! Great formula for being a neon. Dried to a satin finish. This is three coats, no undies and with top coat. Color makes me look super tan. 

Pink Flame-ingo
Pink Flame-ingo is a gorgeous bubble gum pink neon. Seen here is three coats, no undies and with top coat. I do not have a polish like this in my collection. 

Don't Worry, Be Brilliant
My favorite from the collection. It is a gorgeous neon coral that screams summer! It is not a dupe for China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. My original FFF is a tad more pink. The formula for this color was amazing! I did not have any problems with the formula. My skin is usually not this dark but I did not want to retouch my photos. I care more about the polish color be true. Seen here is three think coats, no undies and with top coat.

Go For The Glow
This is highlighter green if I have ever seen one. It is my least favorite from the group. I don't hate it. It is a really fun color, I just didn't like the way it looked on me. It will also be a great color come Halloween time. 
This is three thin coats. No undies and with top coat. 

Don't Touch Me, I'm Radioactive
I would call this one a dusty neon? It really is a great color. But it is not as bright as the others. I love blue and have no other color like this in my collection. It's a keeper anyway. Seen here is three coats. No undies and with top coat.

It's Electric
Last but certainly not least. This is my other favorite from these neons. It is super opaque electric purple. Probably the most neon purple I have seen. Formula was fantastic and almost a one coater. Seen here is two coats, no undies and with top coat. 

Overall this collection is so awesome! I love that none of these colors need an undie. Formula was great with all of them and the wide brush makes it easy to achieve a tidy paint job. 

Morgan Taylor is 3 Free and Cruelty Free. 

I will be posting these on my Instagram as well. Make sure you are following me there! Thanks for looking!! And let me know what you think of these.

This is part of my personal collection and purchased by me.

Takko Lacquer - Babycakes

Hello lovelies!

Today, I have a quick little swatch for you from one of my most coveted Indie brands, Takko Lacquer.  I have been pining over Takkos and stalking restocks like a crazed addict since I started this whole crazy nail polish journey.  These polishes go so quickly at restocks that I have had to refrain from throwing my laptop across the room in frustration of not getting any polishes.  (yes...addiction at it's finest!).  But over the year I have grown my little Takkito army and they are still some of my most favorite polishes.  So you can imagine my sheer delight when Sheryl contacted to review some of her polishes.  I think I might have peed my pants a little with excitement.  (wow...I just got a little excited typing that out!  Is this real life?)

So here is the first of many Takko Lacquer beauties to share with you all!  Say hello to "Babycakes".  This is one of Sheryl's newest colors.  It is a dusty rose pink creme with a gorgeous golden shimmer.  There is also a subtle linear holographic shimmer as well which really helps to give this polish dimension.  I used two coats for this swatch but I probably could have gotten away with one.  I am usually drawn to warmer dusty pinks, so you know I just love this!

Gorgeous right??!?!  "Babycakes" sells for $13 from the Takko Lacquer store.  You can also get takkitos from MeiMei Signatures and Llarowe.  Be sure to keep up with restock info to get your hands on these babies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Loaded Lacquer - Sushi Bar Collection

 Happy Friday!
Do you love Loaded Lacquer polishes?  I love Loaded Lacquer polishes.  Apparently everyone else does too because when the Sushi Bar Collection launched it sold out instantly.  Lucky for you, Heather has been working on a huge restock which goes live today at 6pm CST.  The Sushi Bar Collection showcases two jelly polishes and two glitter toppers, plus lots of shifty holo goodness.  Lots of photos and macros after the jump!
