The polishes in this post were provided for my honest review.
In today’s Polish Con post I have a couple of exclusive polishes from one of our very own local Minnesota brands, Leesha’s Lacquer. Alicia sent me an exclusive and a limited edition polish, both of which will be available at Polish Con Minneapolis this Saturday. I’ll start off with the exclusive shade, Yeah Sure, You Betcha. A truly Minnesotan turn of phrase! Yeah, Sure, You Betcha will be exclusive to Polish Con and will not be available online. There are only 40 bottles available, so if you want this polish, you’d better head to the Leesha’s Lacquer table early! Yeah, Sure, You Betcha is a light grey base with magenta-blue shimmer and magenta-green flakies. The official description is a light grey jelly with purple/blue flakies and a purple/blue shimmer. Here I am showing two coats plus top coat. The formula was great and easy to work with, the flakies spread themselves out just right. This shade will be priced at $10 for a 15 ml bottle. I think it’s a lovely option whether you’re looking for an introduction to Leesha’s Lacquer, or you’re already a fan. Grey polish is so versatile and the shimmer and flakies are lovely! The macro shot shows a bit more of that shimmer, especially the blue shade in the shimmer.
The second polish I received from Leesha’s Lacquer is actually one part of a duo with Sassy Pants polish. I should have the second half of the duo to share with you later this week. For now, here’s Purify Yourself in the Waters of Lake Minnetonka.
Purify Yourself in the Waters of Lake Minnetonka is a pale blue with blue-white colour shifting microflakies. The official description is a gorgeous baby blue with blue and purple flakies and shimmer, reminiscent of a gorgeous sunset over lake Minnetonka. This shade is also photochromic, meaning it changes colours in the sun. Perfect for a day out at the lake! In the sun, the pale blue base shifts to a light purple.
This polish is part of a mini duo so it comes in a 7.5 ml mini bottle. Here I am showing 3 coats plus top coat. The polish applied well, but did need three coats to reach this smooth opaque look. I completely forgot that this polish was photochromic when I was swatching it, so I just went back and got a macro of the sun colour: The one pathetic little ray of sun that made it into my apartment was taking forever to shift the colour, so I actually used my UV lamp for gel polish to quickly get this picture. This is the first photochromic polish I’ve tried, so I think it’s pretty cool! I like how the blue glitters match the ‘shade’ base, then provide a complementary tone in the ‘sun’ base.This pretty blue will be available as part of a duo with Sassy Pants Polish (the Sassy Bunny Duo) and will be priced a $16 for the two polishes.
Do you plan on picking either of these up?
