Great Lakes Lacquer Water Colors Collection Swatches and Review

Polish Con is coming right up and I will be sharing collections and releases that will be available there on Saturday, June 16. Great Lakes Lacquer is celebrating their third anniversary and will be launching the Water Colors Collection, inspired by things that can change the color of water. This is a fantastic and innovative collection - let's check it out!

Great Lakes Lacquer Bottom Shoals is an aqua jelly with red-to-green multichrome shimmers and iridescent flakes, along with scattered holo shimmer. I wore it in three thin coats and it had a great, quick-drying formula.

Price: $12 at Polish Con, $12.50 online later

This collection launches at Polish Con on Saturday at $12 each or $58 for the set, then online July 1 at $12.50 each or $60 for the set. Also available on July 1 will be the second chance at the Polish Pickup shade Glass on Fire. What flakie heaven! Pastel polishes are not always easy to do. They can be streaky, harsh-looking, or have difficulty with self-leveling or drying and the Water Colors Collection had none of those issues. There was a perfect balance between the opacity of the jelly finish and the effect pigments, so they are flattering, non-streaky, and glow without looking harsh against the skin. Wonderful execution and a great collection for pastel lovers! Do you have a favorite?
