Great Lakes Lacquer – Hella Handmade Creations (HHC) February 2021

Hiya guys! We are almost half way through the month and it again just feels like time is flying. Even though I had made so many promises to myself I feel like I am not doing much of anything these days. Being at home should have given me more time to do things like swatch or nail art, but instead it has sucked the life out of me. Granted I have probably swatched more these past two months than I did all of last year and I am grateful for all the brands that continue to want to work with me. Especially after such an  One of which being the wonderful and amazing Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer. Today I’m sharing swatches for the gorgeous contribution Love Is Brightest In The Dark from Great Lakes Lacquer created for the February edition of Hella Handmade Creations. This month again takes inspiration from the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and specifically the episode where this inscription is recited.

Love Is Brightest In The Dark can be described as a mega multichrome holographic featuring shifts from black to red to orange to a tawny gold. There are really no words to described how much I fell in love with this polish… like the bucket of drool was unreal. Okay, ew haha. But in all seriousness, this brand has come into 2021 straight-up killing it and this polish knocks the rest out of the water so far. And that says a lot because so far I have been absolutely gushing over each and every new release. This polish in particular has ‘go-to’ written all over it and I can see myself coming back to this again and again. It’s one of those perfect shades that you can get away with wearing everywhere for any occasion. And not only that but it compliments every skin-tone I have seen it up against including my own. Just look at the beautiful glow it gives me! It actually looks like I get some sun instead of being the attic dweller that I am, haha.

The formula has a very opaque application and can be considered a one coat wonder in my book. As a personal preference though I did add a thin second coat in order to have more flame and sparkle to the finish. It has a well balanced consistency, not too thick or too thin. All in all it’s a dream to work with in every regard. The holographic flame is so strong even under a lightbox like my photos showcase. It dries down to a smooth high-shine on it’s own and I experienced no staining on removal to either my cuticles or nail beds. Very impressive for such an opaque polish. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
