Schiaparelli - Takko Lacquer


Long time, no... blog? I've been sick and unfortunately that has made painting my nails difficult. But, last night I managed to stop sneezing long enough to put on 'Schiaparelli' from Takko Lacquer's latest collection.

'Schiaparelli' is a vibrant bubblegum pink and is exactly what I needed to cheer me up when I'm feeling sick. It's one of those colours where you can't help but feel lifted when you look at it (and wear it!). Also can I just say that I LOVE the new bottles!

There is an insane amount of shimmer in 'Schiaparelli' and it really makes the polish come alive. The shimmer is a sort of iridescent green colour and it is not at all shy. Even in lower light, the polish appears to have a glow happening.

'Schiaparelli' was easy to work with, though was ever so slightly on the thicker side (not a problem). 2 coats was all that was needed for opacity. This polish does dry to a slightly matte finish, so a good slurp of top coat is recommended.

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 Llarowe, Mei Mei's Signatures and Edgy Polish.
