Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! It's the big the day and I'm still sharing a few more shades from the October run of the Polish Pickup. I will not be happy until your wallets are completely drained. Hey, I can't be in this alone. Polish addicts stick together... especially when it comes to enabling! Now this month the theme is Monsters & Mythical Creatures, which as you guys know has been the BEST THEME EVER. I may or may not have voted for that one, haha. So for today I'm sharing swatches for Great Lakes Lacquer contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration. Let's jump right into the swatches because this shade can do all the talking!

If you're not familiar with the concept, the Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. As I mentioned before, the theme that was voted for October was Monsters & Mythical Creatures!

R'lyeh is a fictional lost city that first appeared in the H. P. Lovecraft short story "The Call of Cthulhu". In the story, R'lyeh is a sunken city in the South Pacific and the prison of the entity called Cthulhu.

O R'lyeh can be described as a moss green linear holo filled with multi-chrome shifts of red to gold to green and in some lights, purple. Are you swooning? I certainly am! Mariah has a way with multi-chromes, she absolutely steals my breath away. I wish I could have captured it a bit better, but all the color shifts and sparkle were making my camera freak out haha.

The formula has a really opaque and smooth application. Definitely enough opacity to be a one coater, but I ended adding a second for more sparkle. It has a nice balanced consistency, not too thick or too thin. Also I experienced no staining on removal to my nail beds or cuticles. Dries down to a smooth high-shine finish on its own. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Overall this shade is without a doubt a must-have for any polish addict. While it doesn't come as a total surprise, I have to say I wasn't expecting the strong color shifts. Photos don't do the color shifts any justice, it's a sight to behold. Definitely a fantastic way to try out the brand if you have yet to make a purchase from this indie. Psst... I'll have another LE stunner to share with you guys on Monday so be sure you stay tuned for that.

To recap, O R'lyeh by Great Lakes Lacquer will be available for purchase through the Polish Pickup Shop October 6th at 11AM EST through October 9th. This full-size 15mL shade will retail for $12 each.
