Great Lakes Lacquer - Hella Handmade Creations April Exclusive

Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! This is actually one of my last posts with.... my nails being this long. I know my fellow polish ladies will feel me on this tragedy *que the world's smallest violin*. I made sure to be SO careful during my vacation week and then went I sit to swatch is when I actually cracked a corner. Like right off. I guess my inner hulk came out when I was removing my polish, haha. Gotta laugh because I am over getting so down from a broken nail. I guess that's one side from them breaking so often, just keep on looking at that upside Rose. Anyway moving on I have a very exciting monthly collaboration event to fill you in on. Today I'm sharing swatches for Half As Well As You Deserve by Great Lakes Lacquer, which is part of the April Hella Handmade Creations collaboration. Each brand featured in HHC has signed up for a minimum of 4 months and chosen a theme/series they will follow over the next few months. Each brand will make one polish per month inspired by their chosen theme/series and the polish will be available for pre-order for a week only. Sound good? Okay, then let's head on to the swatches!

Half As Well As You Deserve can be described as a navy blue featuring a copperish red to gold to green shifting shimmer, swimming with holo micro flakes. Mariah has chosen to take her inspiration from the epic Lord Of The Rings series. This shade is based on Bilbo's going away party with the name being taken from his speech. And now I'm going to state the obvious here... this polish is freaking gorgeous! That feels like an understatement, this is such a unique combination and by far one of my favorites from this brand. The color shift is subtle, but definitely visible in person at even the slightest angle movements. There is so much depth in the finish, I could stare at it forever... Actually the hubs caught me once or twice last night just looking at my nails as I laid in bed haha.

The formula has a really opaque application although not quite a one coater. The coverage is flawless though and as smooth as butter. Consistency wise it's well balanced, not too thick or too thin. It dries down to a high shine and minimal gritty finish, but smooths out perfectly after topcoat. Best of all I experienced no staining whatsoever on removal to either my nail beds or cuticles. Definitely very impressive and it should also be noted that removal is fairy easy after a few days of wear time. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
