Great Lakes Lacquer August 2017 Limited Editions

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have Great Lakes Lacquer's August 2017 Limited Editions to share with you. There are two regular limited editions plus a special charity polish limited edition in this set. This trio of beauties will go on sale on August 15th at 2 PM EST and will disappear from the Great Lakes Lacquer shop on September 2nd at 2 PM EST. 

Olive You is an olive grey-green creme with shimmer that shifts from blue/purple/red/orange. Formula applied smoothly and easily and I used 3 thin coats for full coverage. Because of the creamy base, the multichrome shimmer has a more scattered an unique look than your standard multichrome. It's a more subtle effect, but truly lovely. My photos mainly caught the blue/purple shifts in the shade, but you can definitely see the red and orange at more extreme angles.

High Five Hideout is a black jelly base filled with blue/purple shimmer, holo flakes, and pink and purple microflakes. Formula was very easy to apply and reached full opacity in 3 thin coats. This polish is very galaxy-esque...super pretty! This polish is a collaboration with Melissa of honeybee_nails on Instagram, and it is also a charity polish. High Five Hideout will benefit a local Michigan charity, so it is close to home for both Melissa and Mariah.
This polish will benefit High Five Hideout. The HighFive Hideout is a youth-focused Community Center in the city of Inkster, Michigan. The HighFive Hideout will offer access to educational and recreational activities to communities currently lacking these opportunities.  It also concentrates on creating a safe and positive environment for youth to learn and grow; teaching on crisis prevention and management; and overall serving the needs of the surrounding communities.  At this time, fundraising for a building to center their activities is happening.  You can visit HighFive here:

$5/polish will go to HighFive after sales have concluded.

Sliding Through Summer is a medium turquoise creme with subtle purple/pink shimmer and scattered holo. Formula was nice and opaque and easily reached opacity in 2 quick coats. This is a cool and soothing shade. The holo adds slightly velvety touch vs an in-your-face flame.

Great Lakes Lacquer is available from their new Big Cartel Shop. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram so you can keep up to date on release info. Thanks for looking everyone!
