I have a very special takkito to share with you all tonight. Takko Lacquer has teamed up with osasisXchange to create a special polish for their beauty section of the shop. oasisXchange is an online shop that sells beauty and home goods from companies that are eco-friendly, whether that is vegan, organic, renewable, recyclable, non-toxic, or sustainably produced. Not only are the products eco-friendly but oasisXchange donates 10% of the proceeds to chairy:water which provides clean drinking water to people in devolving nations. Since Takko Lacquer is 5-free and PETA certified 100% cruelty free and vegan, they fit right into oasisXchange's ideals. Sherly created a polish shade that is exclusive to the oasisXchange shop and inspired by the vision of clean drinking water for all.
"La Sirena" is a deep teal blue polish that is packed with green iridescent shimmer. It applies like a dream and was very smooth despite all of the shimmer. With the new Vitamin E infused vegan formula of Takkos, this does dry to a satin matte finish. I topped it with a glossy top coat to bring out the shimmer and shine. Two coats and it was completely opaque for me. I also did not have any staining at all with this deep teal which is something many people expect with polishes in this color family. My camera wanted to make this polish much lighter and bluer than it is in real life. I would say the bottle shot photo is the most color accurate of them all. It is a litter darker and more saturated in real life.
This is the last Takko Lacquer to be released in the beloved square bottle as the manufacturer has discontinued the bottle size. Sheryl has procured new square bottles that are very similar but are a little bit small in volume. Takkos have been $13 (as is this one) but in the future will be $12 due to the slightly smaller volume (11ml vs 12ml). Just an FYI.
As I said before, this polish is only available from the oasisXchange site. You can learn more about Takko Lacquer in general and learn about upcoming restocks and releases on their online store.
Thanks for stopping by!
