Takko Lacquer Winter 2012 Collection

 Hey everyone! Today I have the newest two colors from my fav indie brand, Takko Lacquer. These two colors have actually been out for about a month but they have sold out in minutes every time Sheryl restocks. I was lucky enough to grab them this last time and I completely understand why they sold out so quickly, they are gorgeous!


 
Takko Lacquer - We're All Mad Here
 
We're All Mad Here is a deep royal blue jelly with a bright orange shimmer and blue/green flakies. I DIE. This is, hands down, the BEST FRICKIN POLISH I have ever seen/worn/owned. Each and every time I am completely astounded at the awesome creations Sheryl comes up with, but this is pure genius. I tried soooooo hard to capture the beauty and complexity of WAMH, but damn, it's near impossible. Just trust me when I tell you, get it now. Formula was a dream, thick and smooth, just the way I like it. 2 coats, for perfect coverage (from a jelly! what!). It dries matte because of the pigments, so shiny top coat is a must. Ugh. Just look at that shimmer.


 
 
 
 
Takko Lacquer - Va Va Voom
 
Va Va Voom is a rich red metallic with a strong scattered holo, almost linear in some lighting. Sexy, sultry, definitely befitting the name. Let start off by saying, I do not like red polish. This one makes, number 5. If you count the blue polish, I have, it's closer to triple that number. There is something different about this shade of red. It's warm, and even shifting to an orangey red on occasion. I like it. A lot. This is also the strongest holo out of the entire Takko line. Formula was identical to the other holos, 2 coats, smooth and flowly, perfect consistency.


 
 
It's no secret I get all fan girl over Takko. But can you blame me? The only bad thing, is that more people are catching the Takko fever. Like I said, it took me about a month to get these two colors, they kept selling out that fast! But I couldn't be happier for Sheryl. She is the sweetest lady & I adore her to bits. All this love is totally deserved! XOXOXOXO!
Takko Lacquer is available on line via Etsy.

  3. Okay so now that I have a Christmas bonus I feel like it may be spent on polishes you have made me drool over... the newest one being We're All Mad Here. =) I don't own any Takko Lacquer but I feel like it will have a spot in my heart err collection soon enough. And they both look great on you!
