Good morning lovelies! I'm finally feeling better today, so it's going to be a two post day! I'm anxious to catch up on swatches and I have a veritable TON of awesome polish to share with you.
I'm also excited because I pampered myself a bit yesterday and had my hair cut and colored. It's completely different and I am loving it! I went from my natural color - a very odd ash blonde/brown/grey color to champagne blonde, and cut my hair into a sleek, short, inverted bob with Bettie Page Bangs. My stylist is amazing, and I haven't been this happy with my hair in a long time. If you're near ABQ, you need to visit Katie at ABQ Hair Studio!
I have a really gorgeous new polish from Laquerlicious to share with you this morning (ABC Challenge post will be up later this afternoon). I'm always so excited when Michelle creates new glitters! I have a total of 5 new Laquerlicious beauties to share with you, but I really could not wait to try this one out.
Sea Grass is a mix of multiple shades of teal, green and light green hex, square and micro bar glitter in a clear base with green shimmer.
Another versatile polish, Sea Grass looks great on her own, but I
really wanted to layer this over a mint color to play up the teal a
All photos are 1 coat of Sea Grass over Orly Gumdrop:
I really love this combo. I'm a big fan of teal and green together, and Sea Grass has a perfect balance of each. I apologize for the random bottles in these shots - my nails were getting a bit too long and holding that mini bottle was rough! I actually took down my length after I took these. Normally that would make me sad, but I had this weird curve in one of my nails and filing them down seems to be taking care of that little pest! But, let's talk more about Sea Grass.....
As usual with Laquerlicious, the formula on Sea Grass was flawless. Usable straight from the bottle , I have yet to need a sigle drop of thinner with Laquerlicious polishes.Sea Grass is thick enough to carry the glitter, but not too thick to work with, and no thickening up during use.
Easy Peasy! Sea Grass goes on smooth and the glitter is evenly distributed on the nail. Coverage is excellent- I needed a single coat for this mani. Worn alone, Sea Grass needs 2 coats for full coverage. Dry time was fast, and despite being packed with glitter, I did not need anything other than my usual topcoat for a smooth surface.
Do I even need to say it? I love Sea Grass, and I adore Laquerlicious. Michelle creates some of the best glitters around! You can check out everything Laquerlicious has to offer by visiting LaquerliciousUnity on Etsy. All Laquerlicious creations are 3-free and cruelty-free. Full size bottles retail for $8.50 and there are usually several polishes on sale. Laquerlicious is also the creator of Polish For Pitbulls! You can pick up Hug-A-Bull and Kiss-A-Bull for $15 each and $10 from every polish is donated to Fresno Bully Rescue.
