1 comment

Hiya guys! I'm still here reporting in from the hospital, but keeping strong. It's honestly not too bad being here except for missing my dogs. Especially my little Sophia. Just a few more days and I'll be out of here though. But enough about that.... let's talk polish! For today I'm sharing swatches for Great Lakes Lacquer December contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration. This month the theme that was voted on was Holiday's Around the World. Perfect for the holiday season while still bringing us the creativeness we love every month. Time to take out your shopping list and get ready to add one more. Let's go ahead and get to the swatches!

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 December is Holiday's Around the World. This month Mariah found her inspiration in New Years Eve as inspired by the story The Little Match Girl.

The Last Evening Of The Year can be described as a taupe-like purple teaming with red and gold shimmer. You know how sometimes a polish just stuns you from the word go? Yeah... me with this one right here! I was honestly just not expecting to love it, but once I put it on I felt myself fall head over heels. The hue is really gorgeous and pleasantly stunning against my skin complexion. The shimmer gives the finish depth without being overbearing so that it keeps that classic regal look.

The formula has a really opaque application, though not enough to be a one coater. Consistency wise it leans a little on the thick side, but it's manageable and easy to work with. Very creamy and smooth throughout. It's absolutely jam-packed with shimmer, but it gave me no trouble during removal. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
