Great Lakes Lacquer Polishing Poetic 2.0 Collection

Press Sample of the Great Lakes Lacquer Polishing Poetic 2.0 Collection I had some plans today to get so much done.. and then the power went out. I have about an hour before I’ll be offline, so I’m trying to knock a few out before I go. First up this afternoon is the Great Lakes Lacquer Polishing Poetic 2.0 Collection! This collection is a follow up to the initial collection that launched in February of last year. This is a much softer version though! Usually I leave my lighting alone, but for these photos I used tissue paper to diffuse the light a bit. With my normal lighting it was darkening the polishes too much, so they were far from accurate. That’s why the polish looks “softer” – it’s because they are! Let’s jump in! Without Ever Having Felt Sorry For Itself Without Ever Having Felt Sorry For Itself is a…

Great Lakes Lacquer Water Colors Collection

Press Sample of the Great Lakes Lacquer Water Colors Collection Who’s ready for more Great Lakes Lacquer? For the 3rd Anniversary of Great Lakes Lacquer she created a collection that was inspired by her colorful logo. Here is the Great Lakes Lacquer Water Colors Collection! This is a 5 piece collection that consists of jellies and crellies loaded with shimmer and iridescent flakes. The colors are bright, yes slightly subdued at the same time so the shimmer and flakes pop out and the elements don’t overpower the color and vice versa. If you attended Polish Con, these shades debuted there – so you might have seen them or already purchased some or all. They will be launching on the Great Lakes Lacquer website on July 1st. Let’s take a look! Bottom Shoals Bottom Shoals is my must have shade from this collection. Bottom Shoals is a bright aqua crelly with a…

Great Lakes Lacquer To The Very Fires Of Mordor

Press Sample for Great Lakes Lacquer To The Very Fires Of Mordor I’m getting ready to head to bed, but I was hoping to get a post up today! I’m currently swatching more Great Lakes Lacquer shades – so it’s only fitting that I also do a post on Great Lakes Lacquer To The Very Fires Of Mordor! This shade is part of the June Hella Handmade Creations series. As I mentioned in my last series of posts, HHC changed things up and they are starting a new series. 12 makers are participating in the monthly customs and each brand has a theme they picked for themselves. Great Lakes Lacquer selected Lord Of The Rings as inspiration! Great Lakes Lacquer’s first polish in this series is based on Bilbo’s going away party. The name is taken from his speech. For her second polish,  we saw You Shall Not Pass which is…
