All right stop: collaborate and listen...

8:00 AM


I'm so excited to be able to finally share this with you all!! Awhile back I was contacted by a fellow blogger, Carrie, who is starting up her own line of polishes called Sassy Lacquer.  I was asked to collaborate on a polish for her "Inspirational Bloggers Collection" along with a few other lucky ladies!  Today is the first reveal's mine!!  It was a real uphill battle creating my polish! Not because Carrie isn't amazing but because SO much work goes into making these.  I can honestly say, Carrie puts a TON of thought and work into these bad boys and they're completely worth the wait (and the price!)  The polish I collaborated on is called Nacozari.  So here we go...


This is the swatch I did of my polish.  It was taken in natural, outdoor light on an overcast day.  It's a pale blue leaning turquoise with a subtle copper shimmer.  The original inspiration for my polish was my kitty, Aoife's, eye color.  She has these GORGEOUS blue/green eyes which glint copper when the sun hits them. If you've been on my other blog then you'll no doubt have seen my lovely kitty but for those of you who haven't, here's a pic!

I think this polish hit the nail pretty squarely on the head.  Similar to Catrice's Am I Blue or Green? Nacozari leans blue and green depending on the light.  I had a difficult time capturing it on my camera because for some reason everytime I get a minute to swatch it's overcast. But the macro shot below shows the copper flecks.

The color on this is off a bit.  It's much less murky but you can really see all the shimmery goodness in this shot.  It's taken in artificial lights indoors.  Because Carrie sent me some amazing swatches of it while we were collaborating, I'm including them below so you can get a better idea of the color and also the way it shifts from blue to green and shimmers in the sunlight!

From the pinky to index we have one coat all the way up to three.  I think two coats is nice but the formula is a bit more jelly than creme so three is ideal for full opacity.  You can see here how it's more of a bright turquoise color.

Two more for good measure!!

I hope you all loved this polish as much as I loved making it!! You can enter the giveaway below to be one of the first to own my collaboration, Nacozari, from Sassy Lacquer!
