Moore Swatches: Great Lakes Lacquer – Polishing Poetic v2 Collection and Love Letter To Duo with Scofflaw Varnish


Hey Sugas!!! They were so good the first time around, Great Lakes Lacquer (GLL) decided to bring them back for a version 2. That’s right, the highly sought after Polishing Poetic Collection is back! All of the polishes had to be reformulated due to finding new pigment with the same shifts and therefore almost all of the polishes are re-named with ‘v2’. The only one not coming back is ‘Leaves No Step Had Trodden Black’ and it’s being replaced with ‘I Have Been Her Kind’.

In addition to the fan favorite collection, a new duo from Great Lakes and Scofflaw is releasing. Mariah of Great Lakes, along with Lauri Salzman (whom we lost this year), created the Love Letter to Scofflaw Facebook Fan Group a year or so before she started her brand.

“I couldn’t think of a better way (or person) to celebrate GLL’s 4th Birthday than Finch,” says Mariah. The duo will launch on July 12th thru August 3rd at 9pm et. Please note, these will not be restocked at a later date and will not be available individually. 



**All swatches are done using liquid latex peel off base coat, glossy QDTC and matte topcoat. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
