It has been a week. We’re finally all over our various bugs in the house, and man.. that was a pain. Jacob came home with a cold, then a few days later I got hit hard with it. Same day I woke up with it, Nick woke up with a stomach bug. Jacob got better, then I took a day off due to a fever… only to get a call from Jacob’s school to pick him up because he got Nick’s stomach bug. We were trying so hard to not cross contaminate, but failed.
It’s always something.
On the bright side, I did get a lot of swatching done, and … I’m scrambling. I won’t lie at all, I’m rushing around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. Being sick set me back a little, but overall I’m keeping up. Polish Pickup is around the corner, and it hits right after Black Friday – and I have a LOT of Black Friday posts to share… including this post here.
We’re going to be looking at the Great Lakes Lacquer Westworld Collection!
The Westworld Collection will be releasing on December 28th at 9pm EST and will have special pricing for that weekend. The collection will remain available after the Black Friday weekend, but the price will go to normal if you purchase after that time frame. You’ll also receive one of these polishes free if you purchase the entire collection.
This collection is inspired by the HBO show Westworld, which I’ve seen a little bit of. I know Nick has seen a lot of it, but he usually would watch it while I was swatching.. so yeah – I haven’t seen a ton of it. Whether you’ve seen the show or not though – you’re gonna love this collection.

Great Lakes Lacquer | Bring Yourself Back Online
Bring Yourself Back Online is a sheer, pale aqua jelly based pastel multichrome with strong shimmery shifts of icy blue to teal to pink to lilac to magenta to orange to gold. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Some VNL is still visible, so you can also use as a topper, or do slightly thicker coats.
This is slightly softer and shiftier in person.
Great Lakes Lacquer | Freeze All Motor Functions
Freeze All Motor Functions is a white crelly base loaded with teal to blue to purple to magenta to orange multichrome flakes, as well as a teal to blue to purple shimmer that gives a nice glowy effect when the light hits. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Great Lakes Lacquer | Time To Write My Own F’ing Story
Time To Write My Own F’ing Story (yes I’m censoring it… we can get dinged for certain words but the actual name has the full F word) is a berry red multichrome that shifts to a magenta to orange to gold. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Great Lakes Lacquer | I’m Well Off My Knees

Great Lakes Lacquers | It Doesn’t Look Like Anything To Me
It Doesn’t Look Like Anything To Me is a slate blue-grey creme with strong red to orange to gold multichrome shimmer mixed in. The shimmer gives the polish an almost lavender tinge. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
