Muse - Takko Lacquer

Hi folks!

I have an absolutely gorgeous polish to show you tonight (this morning?!). I have to start by saying that I am in love with this polish, but it has caused me some serious grief today! I could not photograph Takko Lacquer 'Muse' today at all. It was as though my camera settings had been completely changed. I couldn't get anything in focus and the polish was just looking crap. Long story short, I went and bought some new bulbs for my lamps, reset my camera, re-top coated my nails and finally everything was back to normal. What happened?

I am so glad that I sorted out whatever was wrong with my setup because that means that I could show you this beauty. This is 'Muse' and it is the purple cousin to one of my favourite polishes, 'The Electric Apple: NYC'. I think that there aren't many, if any, people out there that do a shimmer like this as well as Sheryl. 'Muse' is definitely one of those polishes that glows. As usual with Takko Lacquer beauties, the shimmer isn't shy and even glows a little in fairly low light.

The formula of 'Muse' was a bit different to what I've come to know of Takko Lacquers, but not at all in a bad way. It was a little thinner but so beautifully easy to work with. The first coat was a teeny bit sheer, but the second coat gave perfectly opaque coverage. It's also really nicely self-levelling and dries really fast.

Make sure you check out Sheryl's blog to find out about the inspiration behind the polishes in this collection. Also keep an eye on Takko Lacquer's twitter for info about restocks. Takko Lacquers are sold from their own shop, but only with US shipping. For us international ladies, Takko lacquers are stocked at LlaroweMei Mei's Signatures and Edgy Polish.

  1. Looks like a dupe for Chanel "Paradoxical"! Gorgeous pics, worth the effort :)

    1. Thank you! Hmm could be similar actually. I wonder how close it is...

  2. These pictures are beautiful. So worth the new bulbs and camera re-set. I adore this colour!!
