Takko Tuesday! - Absinthe

Are you hungry for some Takkitos?

I have decided to start something new here at PolishEtc.com!  As you can probably tell, I am not the most consistent blogger.  I post daily on my Instagram account but I don't get as much content posted here as I would like to.   So, I have thought of a way to get you all new blog posts at least once a week by highlighting one of my favorite brands every Tuesday.  Takko Lacquer has been one of my most coveted brands of indie polish since I started this crazy addiction.  I pined over them and stalked restocks for months before ever scoring one.  I have accumulated quite a collection of them not only from my own purchases but also from press samples sent by Sheryl.  I can't wait to share them all with you!  Mmmm...Takkos.

For our first installment of "Takko Tuesday", let's take a look at "Absinthe"!  This is a lovely chartreuse green creme that is packed to the brim with golden microflakies.  The formula was a little thin and I used three coats for this manicure.  But the extra layers added to the depth of the polish and I loved it.  Super bright and bold colors like this may not be for everyone, but they are right up my alley.  I wore this for a whole day and I did notice a little bit of staining when I took it off.  But it faded away by the next day.

Here is where you can get your Takko fix.  Be sure to follow the restocks on social media on the website.  These polishes fly off the virtual shelf and you will need to set an alarm for restocks. :)

Tell me if you dig the idea of Takko Tuesday!  And feel free to request any of your favorite Takkitos to be featured on a future post.  If I have it, I will try and get it posted.
