How are you?! Today I have the honor of showing you a new to me indie!! Literary Lacquers reached out to me to swatch a couple of colors for them and I could not have been more flattered! They have been around for a while so of course I knew I wanted to work with them!
Today I have the pleasure of showing you her contribution to the Mother’s Day Hella Holo Customs trio. You do know HHC right? If you don’t you need to run not walk to check them out on facebook (click here) they always have awesome ideas for their extremely exclusive customs so you need to be a part of that group, also, you need to be in there to be able to purchase the pretty I’m about to show you!
As commented in the group, Makuahine was created in honor of Stacy (one of the group admin’s beloved mother who died unexpectedly recently) is a metallic copper linear holo with copper flakies and a touch of pink and gold glass fleck. “The metallic finish represents the strength that our mother figures have in all that they do for those they hold dear. The warm earthy color represents the love and care they bring forth to us. The Hawaiian name, Makuahine (Ma-koo-ah-hee-nay) was chosen because Stacy spent so much of her life on the islands.”
Isn’t that beautiful? Amy did such an amazing job creating this baby.
This baby is a bit shifty so it shows more intense in some pics but the softer side shines through in others.. I find it to be more in the champagne side rather than copper. Beautiful nonetheless!!
The formula was superb, glided on effortlessly on my nail, dried quickly and only two-three coats are needed for opacity. You see three thin coats plus glossy top coat in the pics. Artificial lighting in the pics above and flash in the pic below.
For nail art I wanted to do something pretty to honor all moms and since my mother loves flowers it just seemed natural to stamp some black roses over this beauty. Hope you like it!
If you like this baby I highly recommend you purchase, the formula is wonderful. Do not forget that you need to be a part of HHC to purchase (they even have a discount code listed for you so goooooo). Also, hurry bc this will only be available to purchase until the 10th!
Thank you so much for reading and thank you so much Amy for allowing me to review this beauty!
