Today I have four beautiful polishes from Great Lakes Lacquer on the blog. Two are the December limited editions and will be available Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. CST, one is part of the recently released My Winter Survival Kit Collection and the last is one of the November LE, which is available until Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. CST. All these beauties are available at the Great Lakes Lacquer new Big Cartel site.
First up is one of the two December LE. This is Great Lakes Lacquer Rainbow! Right Here and Now! This is a gorgeous grey crelly polish packed with flakies of the rainbow and scattered holo to top it all off.
Mariah, the creator behind Great Lakes Lacquer, said "Inspired by a photo and named for a beloved character in a book. Every rainbow I see, I say in my head 'Right Here And Now!' Most times, I will add a Wolf onto the end as well."
This polish is slightly thick, but if you stick with thin coats, you'll have no problem with application. My swatches are two coats plus a top coat. I really just love this polish, beautiful in low light when the flakies are display and in the sun, this polish is perfect for any occasion.
This is the second December LE, Great Lakes Lacquer Winter Solstice Sunrise. This beauty made me gasp when I saw it, so stunning. This is a gorgeous faded sky blue polish filled with multichrome flake that shifts from violet to blu to purple and shimmer that brings out shift in the flake.
According to Mariah this polish was inspired by sunrises and the colors that inspire her the most.
The formula on this polish was perfection, opaque in two easy coats.
This is Great Lakes Lacquer Fuzzy Socks, part of the Winter Survival Kit Collection, which just released on Friday. This is a gorgeous fuchsia red with purple shimmer jelly polish packed with micro holo flake.
Mariah said, "Warm and soft and necessary. My favorite pair resemble this color, only this polish has added bling because feelings."
This polish was opaque in two super easy coats. I loooooved the depth of this polish, so much to love here. It's a great berry color and I have a lovely matching sweater which I broke out when I was wearing this one. Such a beautiful color for winter.
Last but not least I have some nail I art I did yesterday featuring the Great Lakes Lacquer November LE, which I just had to purchase because it is so beautiful and perfect for this time of year. On my thumb, middle and pinky fingers is Great Lakes Lacquer Thank Full. This is a gorgeous brown-leaning burgundy holo with orange leaning red flakies that flicker and bring this polish to live. A gorgeous almost one-coater – I am in love this polish.
I created the above look as my Thanksgiving nails, they should last me through at least Thursday! On the pointer and ring fingers is Different Dimension Armstrong (which I don't think is available anymore, sorry) with a fun leaf design from my UberChic Lovely Leaves plate using Painted Polish Stamped in Chocolate and Stamped in Sweet Potato.
If you like this fun fall look, stay tuned for tomorrow, I'm sharing six different looks (not including this one) using the Lovely Leaves plate because I'm obsessed with fall manis.
But back to Great Lakes Lacquer, as a reminder, the two December limited editions and will be available Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. CST. Fuzzy Socks is already available. Thank Full is a LE and is only available until Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. CST. All these beauties are available at the Great Lakes Lacquer new Big Cartel site.
So let me know, which of these are your favorite.
