We all have those favorite summer jams that put us in a nostalgic mood, when we used to play in the street until the lights came on, chase fireflies or lay the grass making shapes with clouds. Whatever you did as a child, I guarantee there are a few summer time anthems that if you heard right not would flood your thoughts with the good old days.
The playlist that Karen of Lollipop Posse Lacquer conjured up will set your summer days and nights into overdrive. This 7-piece collection was created in collaboration with Mr. Lollipop (the Lollipop hubs), and inspired by their mutual love for the alternarive rock scene of the late ’90’s and early 2000’s.
Let’s press play…
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid, Tonic Topper by Tonic Nail Polish (shiny) and Matte Me topcoat by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
Help Me Burn Out Bright
A firey glitter topper that consist of two sizes of color changing, iridescent hex glitters and a sprinkling of holographic sparkle. The glitters are packed in there, so one coat over a dark shade is plenty to show off the red/green/gold shift! Swatch shown in 2 coats over a purple base.
But My Hands are Busy in the Air
A turquoise/aqua crelly that is filled with purple shimmer and a smattering of holographic sparkles.
I Remember When I Lost My Mind
A royal purple crelly with ocean blue shimmer and iridescent sparkle
She Lives on the Borderline
A multichrome crelly that shifts between green, red, copper, and even blue at extreme angles. Borderline also features the red/green/gold shifting iridescent glitters in various sizes, as well as micro holographic sparkles.
My Heart’s in Overdrive
A hot pink crelly that is packed with blue shimmer, holographic micro flakies, micro holo sparkle, and silver flakies.
The Future is Coming On
A steel-colored, chrome base that suspends multiple sizes of red/green/gold shifting iridescent glitters, as well as a healthy dose of iridescent sparkle. The first coat applies rather lightly, but further coats will build to opacity.
Pleasantly Caving In
An ocean-blue crelly that leans towards cobalt. She features red and violet shimmer and a scattering of holographic sparkle.
