Great Lakes Lacquer A Nude Awakening Collection Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Hi everyone!  Today I have Great Lakes Lacquer's fall offerings to show you, the A Nude Awakening Collection.  If you can't already tell by the name, this is a collection of nudes a neutrals.  But just because they're nudes and neutrals doesn't mean they have to be boring!

Let's take a look!



Great Lakes Lacquer Make Mine a Grande.  This is a creamy taupe nude with a hint of purple undertones.  It has a subtle amount of holo shimmer and bronze shimmer as well as some holo micro flake.  The formula is easy to work with and applies perfectly.

This is 2 coats.

As always, Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer has done a great job with these neutrals with a twist.  If I had to pick favorites, I'd definitley have to go with Make Mine a Grande and Don't Forget the Whip, but you really can't go wrong with any of these.

The A Nude Awakening Collection will be making it's debut at Polish Con (If you're in Chicago this Saturday, September 17th, check it out!  Click the link for details.) and will debut on GreatLakesLacquer.com September 21st at 3pm EST.  Don't forget to check out Great Lakes Lacquer at the following spots!
