This is as close as I’m gonna get to Chicago this weekend and while my heart is a little broken that I won’t be able to make Polish Con 2017, Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer done sent me an early birthday present of her 3 limited edition Polish Convention shades!

Great Lakes Lacquer Chicago Shenanigans (above). So pretteh! So perfectly lovely! This almost cornflower lilac is stuffed with shifting shimmerz! It makes it glowy! And spectacularly shenaniganny! (Ha! New word!)
Great Lakes Lacquer Chicago Shenanigans with side salad (above). That’s 3 thin coats with top (yes, my beloved Revlon Quick Dry) and if I smack it in the butt with some grass, you can totally see the shifting flakie-shimmerz, right? It’s like a party hiding all up in there!
Great Lakes Lacquer Meet Me at Shedd (above). What’s Shedd, you ask? Uh, it’s the Chicago Aquarium. You know, Chicago? Where Polish Con 2017 is this weekend and I can’t go? Yeah, it’s that. But I did score this pretty exclusive shade and in 2 coats, indoors, it’s this! It’s kind of a muted seafoam aqua with a bunch of shifting flakies in it – sorta like the sea! I know, I’m excellent with all the descriptor things!
Great Lakes Lacquer Meet Me at Shedd on a bed of greens (above). If I put this Polish Con exclusive (that means it’s being made specifically for PC2017 and will not be remade) over a bed of salad and shoot it, there’s shimmer too! Whuuut? There’s so much to look at in here that you might just sit and stare at it for hours. And hours – like you would at a fish tank.
Great Lakes Lacquer Festival of Fantasies (above). That's 3 coats + my Revlon QDTC. I don’t have to say more, do I?
Great Lakes Lacquer Festival of Fantasies with side salad (above). If you’re going to The 2017 Polish Convention in Chicago, and don’t have this on your shopping list, there’s something wrong with you. For real.
And that’s it! The 3 Great Lakes Lacquer Polish Con shades for Chicago 2017! Now let me tell you about availability:
If you’re headed to Chicago, all 3 of these shades will be there until they’re gone.
Great Lakes Lacquer Mermaids of Lake Michigan Collection (above). These 3 September limited edition shades will be there too - but in limited quantities. Swatches are comin' - I swear it!
After the show, you’ll be able to get Chicago Shenanigans and Festival of Fantasies online at greatlakeslacquer.com for 1 week only, starting 2pm EST Saturday September 30th. Further, if Meet Me at Shedd doesn’t sell out in Chicago, you’ll be able to score one online starting 2pm Sept 30th as well. But, if it sells out, you ain’t gonna see it online because Mariah is only making it once for da big show. Ya dig?
Here, have some GLL linky things. (If you’re ordering online, as with all indie polishes, be sure to check the shipping info page so you know how long stuff will take).
