Hello! I have lots to share with you this week so let's get right to it! First up is this duo from Anchor & Heart Lacquer and Lollipop Posse Lacquer. As they were tossing ideas around for their collaboration, Karen and Taryn found that they were both fans of the television show, "Vikings" and using that as a starting point as well as drawing inspiration from the significance of the ocean and feminine power in the Nordic culture, this is what they have created together.
To purchase the duo, visit Lollipop Posse Lacquers's shop Friday March 31st through April 7th.
The duo will retail for $22 plus $3.50 shipping within the US. International shipping will be calculated at cost.
25 sets will be available for immediate shipping. After the first 25 are claimed, the listing will be changed to reflect a pre-sale status. Pre-sale orders will ship within two weeks of receipt of payment.
Anchor & Heart Lacquer Clamber, With a Heart of Steel
Dark greige crelly with green shimmer, iridescent micro-glitter, plus green/purple/blue ultra-chrome flakes
Maker Inspiration Note:
"I drew inspiration from the legendary tales of Viking bravery, and the ferocity of the Viking woman as portrayed by the tv show, "Vikings". They are shown as tough-as-nails shield maidens, caring, devoted mothers and partners, hard working farmers and fishing folk, with no shortage of ambition and faith! The polish name is borrowed from a war chant used in the series. To me, it speaks to their relentless spirit and bravery."
I love how the iridescence and ultra-chrome flakes peek through the moody gray toned base. That flash of green is oh so tasty. It applies well, not quite opaque with two coats but a thin third coat makes it opaque.
Lollipop Posse Lacquer More, Give Me More
Magenta crelly with blue to green shifting shimmer and two sizes/shades of purple holographic micro-glitter
Maker Inspiration Note:
"I was inspired to create this shade by the theme song of the "Vikings" show, "If I Head a Heart" by Fever Ray. The feminine strength and power displayed throughout the shield maiden Lagertha's voyage over the course of the show is deeply empowering. She is a strong wife and mother, but then (no spoilers!), she becomes MORE."
Oh damn. So very gorgeous. I love how deeply magenta this color is and how the purple gives it a "glowing from within" quality. Slightly more jelly in formula but full opacity for me in two coats. You may need to do a double layer of topcoat due to the micro-glitter.
