Lemming CONQUERED! I had been searching for a polish by the no-longer-in-business company Alta Costura, but found a perfect dupe, thanks to my friend Tia, called Safety Stick, made by 2 Chix.
I was able to get a mini bottle from her, and my first mani looked like this:
Love this! The accent nail is CG's Unrefined, by the way. I knew I needed another bottle, so I started to look around.
Turns out, 2 Chix was also Out Of Business!!!!!
However, being the super sleuth (or raging stalker, whatever) that I am, I found a contact for 2 Chix and sent a message (desperately) hoping that the maker would have one (or 14) bottles left to sell me.
*Heaven's Gates Opens, cue Angel's singing*
Well, turns out - SHE DID!
And, in even better news, 2 Chix is now Liquid Lacquer and she is IN business!!!!!
Safety Stick is not one of her current polishes but she had the glitter mix left to make me a full size bottle! Hooray!
Here is what I received:
From right to left:
- Starlight, Starbright (coming soon!)
- What Happens In Vegas...(available now)
- Damn, It's Cold
- Safety Stick
- Only I Remain (available now)
Of course, my first mani was with Safety Stick again! This is SS over Orly Boho Bonnet:
I loved these minis though, too, especially the orange!
What Happens In Vegas and Only I Remain are currently in her store, but def ask about the others if you're interested! Let me show you the two available ones first:
Only I Remain has blue and green glitters in a clear base. It's shown here as two coats over butterLONDON Fiver:
The other polish that is currently available is called What Happens In Vegas... and is a mix of gold, magenta, brown, black, and cyan blue glitters in a clear base:
This is two coats of WHIV... over butterLONDON Fruit Machine. Apparently I was in a butterLONDON mood.
The others are not currently in the shop, but you should contact her via Facebook and ask if you like them.
Check out my personal fave among the minis, Kablam! It has an orange base with green and teal glitters and it is super cool:
I really own nothing like that! Kablam is shown in 3 coats alone because I don't even have a base close to the color, nevermind an indie like it. I love a unique polish!
Next, Starlight Starbright is an UPCOMING polish that will be released soon! It's a blueberry colored jelly with iridescent hex and some bigger circles, which I didn't pick up in my mani. I think the mini bottle is to blame. This is 3 coats alone:
Last but not least is Damn, It's Cold, which has a variety of blue and silver mini hexes and super mini hexes throughout. Here is two coats over Barry M Turquoise, my current favorite blue polish. Am I turning into a blue polish convert or what!!?!?!
Between Barry M's Turquoise, Pluto from Cosmos Lacquer, and the blues in Damn, It's Cold and Only I Remain, I am loving blues lately!
Let me give you one last look at the GORGEOUS polish of my dreams, Safety Stick - over a blue (shocker) from Orly:
You can find Liquid Lacquer on Facebook HERE and on her store page HERE.
Tell her Lacey from My Boyfriend Hates Makeup sent you - and tell her to bring back Safety Stick! LOL. Thanks for stopping by!
