You know how sometimes you find an indie brand that you love so much but can never get your hands on? Well that was the case for sometime for me with Takko Lacquer. Their stock was just too low for me to ever succeed in the restocks but their polishes were just so unique I needed to have them in my collection. A few months back everything changed and I managed to snag a few colors. The next day Sheryl, the creator behind it all, emailed me with astonishment that I even knew about her brand and insisted on sending me some samples. So many smiles graced my face when I read her kind words. She even let me choose which ones I wanted and of course I had to go with this beautiful thermal polish ‘Cheshire Cat’.
Alright so you may be thinking as you come to this post, “Isn’t it supposed to be day purple of the 31 day challenge Corynn?” and yes that is very true. But there isn’t any pink day so I figured lets combine the two forces. In my mind I wanted to attempt a cheshire cat of some sort but I realized that I could never pull it off so I used Zoya ‘Mira’ and ‘Charisma’ for some cheshire stripes. Pretty snazzy right?! HA! I know this isn’t very much for the challenge but I hope I get another wave of motivation going thru me. The golden shimmer in this polish really makes it pop and stand out amongst the rest. I used three coats to achieve full opacity.
Wasn’t able to get any good photos of the cold stage of this polish which is the darker purple so here’s a little video to show you all the transition that happens! Find it HERE on my instagram!
