Takko Lacquer Absinthe

Hey y'all! Man what a whirl-wind week and weekend this has been! The kiddo was sick again, I finished an amazing book, spent a lovely day with my husband, played with some awesome nail polish, drank copious amounts of coffee, went bowling and tried to take a nap. I feel dizzy just thinking about all of that! I am very much a homebody, so it doesn't take a whole lot to overwhelm me, lol!

Today I have a (sort of) new Takkito to share. Absinthe was launched in December along with several other polishes, but it was mistakenly left out of my swatch package. And since Sheryl is super fantastic and so awesome, she sent it to me along with Heart Shaped Box and a few goodies for Valentine's Day. So now I get to do a proper review of this beauty for you guys!

Takko Lacquer Absinthe

Absinthe is a bright, bordering on neon, chartreuse green with golden shimmer. Ooooh, now this is one of those colors that just make me love polish! It is definitely a bold choice and not for everyone, but all you Takko fans will love it for sure! The formula is thinner than most other Takkitos, but it is still so smooth and glides on effortlessly. This is three coats for full opacity, and guess doesn't stain!!! I wore it for three days and had no stains what so ever afterwards. It does dry to a satin finish (which looks awesome) but I opted to top coat it for photos.


Ahhh, just look at that gold shimmer...isn't it swoon-worthy?! I cannot wait to use this for everything! I already have a couple of ideas in mind for nail art, in fact.

At this time, I don't have any info when Absinthe will be restocked, but Sheryl is awesome about letting everyone know when restocks happen, and what shades will be available. So be sure to follow Takko Lacquer Instagram for launch, restock and give away news!
