Great Lakes Lacquer Freshly Fallen Snow 
Two coats
Silver metallic with holo micro-flakes and pigment
Maker notes:
I'm not much of an outside person in the winter but I will admit the sun shining on freshly fallen snow is about the most captivating sight ever.  The twinkle and glints are one of winter's redeeming qualities.
There are moments in winter time, that I wish I lived in an area where I would get to see freshly fallen snow but nope, not in Texas, where it snows every decade, maybe, and even then it's more icy sludge than snow. Well, I will take this polish inspiration as a consolation, its silver sparkle is crisp and lovely. Thicker formula, with the addition of flakes and holo but goes on smoothly in two thinner style coats. 




Great Lakes Lacquer Fuzzy Socks
Two coats
 Fuchsia red with purple shimmer and holo micro-flakes
Maker notes:
Warm and soft and necessary.  My favorite pair resemble this color, only this polish has added bling because feelings.
I do love socks, my sock drawer is filled with all sorts of colorful and bright ones and there is nothing quite like putting on a pair of cozy socks during the winter months. I may need to hunt down a pair that looks like this polish, it's simply stunning with its rich berry shade and that shimmer, mmmm. C/P formula notes: Thicker formula, with the addition of flakes and holo but goes on smoothly in two thinner style coats. 



Great Lakes Lacquer Thick Ice
Two coats
Deep watery blue with pink and purple shimmer plus holo micro-flakes and pigment
Maker notes:
This one is more about getting my husband out of the house and ice fishing, which saves my sanity.  Because if I have to listen to tales about the big one that got away last year one more time, I may have to throw some freshly fallen snow at him.
Mariah makes some amazing blue shades and this is not exception. Deeply blue and lots of sparkle. 
C/P formula notes: Thicker formula, with the addition of flakes and holo but goes on smoothly in two thinner style coats. 




Great Lakes Lacquer Cuddly Soft Covers
Two coats
Midnight violet with sparks of blue plus holo micro-flakes and pigment
Maker notes:
Are you noticing a trend?  Warmth is comfort during the cold months, and there is nothing better than cuddling up in a soft, thick cover when it's especially cold outside.
Purple lovers, you have not been forgotten, here is a beautiful purple, just for you.
C/P formula notes: Thicker formula, with the addition of flakes and holo but goes on smoothly in two thinner style coats.
