Today, I am sharing a super duper special Takkito with you. This is the one that started it all! "Blushing Nude" was part of the inaugural collection from Takko Lacquer back in July 2012. I didn't even start my nail polish addiction until October 2012 but "Blushing Nude" was on my radar before Christmas. I needed it. Like NEEDED it! You could say that this polish was my very first lemming. After months and months of trying to snag this beauty at a Takko restock and failing, I bit the bullet and ordered internationally from MeiMei Signatures. So this polish was made in Florida, shipped to Singapore for me to buy it and have it shipped all the way back to Florida to me. Silly, right? But when you see this lovely polish...hopefully you will understand.
"Blushing Nude" is a nude based crelly with a bright pink/fuchsia iridescent shimmer. The shimmer peeks out at certain angles which gives your nails a blushing like quality. The base color is so close to my natural skin tone that is gives me that mannequin hand look but with a flash of pink blushing at an angle. I wore this polish today as an entire manicure and people thought I had on clear polish with a pink shimmer. It's so delicate, so subtle and is a perfectly work appropriate nail polish color. I used two coats with a glossy top coat for my mani. There is still a subtle visible nail line but that is what I like about it. My nails but better. :)
Do you remember those old Takko Lacquer bottles? I only have a handful for the older round bottles. I do prefer the current little rectangle bottles that Sheryl uses now. Wearing this polish today made me feel a little nostalgic for my early crazed excitement over indie polishes. What was your first lemming and have you gotten your hands on it yet? Tell me!
