Takko Tuesday! - Kiss the Sky (plus one year anniversary giveaway!)

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Can you believe that I have been doing Takko Tuesday for an entire year now?!?!  This week is the One Year Anniversary of this series.  I have highlighted a different Takko Lacquer each Tuesday since June 23, 2015.  It all started with this post about Absinthe.  That's a lot of Takkitos!  For this special day, I wanted to share with the hands down, most coveted Takko Lacquer polish out there, "Kiss the Sky".  I have never featured this shade before because it is not in production anymore and had been sought after by many.  But I figured this momentous occasion was a great opportunity to share both of the bottle I have collected.  I have an original bottle sent to be by my honey muffin face, Indie500Nails, years ago.  Then a snagged a reformulated new bottle from a blog sale a year or so ago.  I needed them both for comparison, right?


Here is the original version of Kiss the Sky.  The base is a bright blue jelly and it is packed with shifty unicorn pee shimmer.  This color/shimmer combination was all the rage in 2012.  It was bright and bold and everyone wanted it.  The shimmer is mostly a glowing red on your nails that shifts to a bright green at an angle.  I have two coats with a glossy top coat on my nails here.

After a year or so, the pigments for Kiss the Sky became scarce and Takko Lacquer needed to reformulate the polish.  The new version was a little darker and deep blue than the original.  But the shimmer was still amazing.  So glowy and shifty!  I have a hard time picking a favorite of these two.  The original version is nostalgic but the new version is sexy.  I have two coats with a glossy top coat on my nails here.

Even though Kiss the Sky is gone, you still have a chance to recreate this same look!  Takko Lacquer released "Opal Dust" which can give you the same effect.  Check out my review here.  It is the same shimmer, just in a top coat.  Layering it over blue will give you an almost identical feel.  

To celebrate the anniversary of Takko Tuesday, Sheryl and I are giving away a bottle of Opal Dust and Irezumi from Takko Lacquer so you can recreate this classic takkito for yourself.  Just enter using the Rafflecopter form below!  Amazing right?!?  Winner will be announced in July.
