I love how I have posted one product in honor of Earth Day on April 1st and now it's halfway through the month and I am only featuring the second brand. I feel like I am letting down Mother Earth. I feel like this shorter week has left me scrambling with trying to get things done as I am working my day job the long weekend, but no one else is so much of what I need to get done is going to have to wait until next week.
Anyway, I digress so let's get back to prettier things "at hand" with this simple, but fun manicure featuring one of the BEST healthy polishes I have come across - La Couleur Couture aka LACC Nail Lacquer! Based in Vancouver with the polishes made in New York, this brand is vegan and 10-free meaning there is absolutely no formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens, phthalates, fragrance or animal by-products! Owner and founder, Farima Hakkak, is so passionate about her brand and polishes and also one of the most down to earth and NICEST people I have ever met so I wear her polishes with pride!
I wanted to do a super girly, spring manicure so I pulled out LACC 1973*, a gloriously deep purple, and LACC 1953*, a bright creme pink, and came up with this! I applied two coats of 1973 to my middle and index nails and then dotted on 1953. If you like purple polishes, 1973 has a WONDERFUL formula and is one that I will wear again FOR SURE. It was perfectly opaque and was nicely self-leveling.
For my pointer and pinky nails, I applied three coats of 1953, sponged on 1973 to the tips and painted a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust to even out the gradient. 1953 needed three coats to even out patchiness, but I feel like this is often the case with pinks like this whether they are 10-free or 5-free. Once everything was semi-dry, I applied a shiny top coat.
I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter weekend!
