Hiya nail nerd friends! It’s me! With more Great Lakes Lacquers! These are September 2017 limited editions. There are 3 shades, each named for one of the three little water-lovers in Mariah’s life; two daughters + her BFF’s kidlet.

I could write my own descriptors (which I’m famously not amazing at) or, I can just tell you what Mariah says about these pretties. Yes, that’s what I’ll do!

Great Lakes Lacquer Bristol _ Great Lakes Mermaids of Lake Michigan September 2017

Great Lakes Lacquer Bristol

Great Lakes Lacquer Bristol – September 2017 LE (above). Bristol is the spitfire. Her polish is a rich deep teal shot through with red, gold, green shifting shimmer and a scattering of holo. Indoors under natural light, she’s deep, deep water.

Great Lakes Lacquer Helena _ Great Lakes Mermaids of Lake Michigan September 2017

Great Lakes Lacquer Helena

Great Lakes Lacquer Helena – September 2017 LE (above). It’s Helena, the leader. Inside at my desk, she shows like a lit-from-within kind of glowy emerald.

Great Lakes Lacquer Sophia _ Great Lakes Mermaids of Lake Michigan September 2017

Great Lakes Lacquer Sophia

Great Lakes Lacquer Sophia – September 2017 LE (above). Sophia is the healer and most adaptable. Her polish is a blue-leaning teal filled with glowing blue-to-purple shifting shimmer and scattered holo.

Great Lakes Lacquer Sophia w side salad (above). When paired with grass and a whack of light, the skittery-scattery holo comes out to play. There’s also this wicked kind of teal haze over the whole confection that I find hugely appealing.

Oh! I almost forgot! How many coats? You might be able to get away with 2 but I needed maximum saturation for photo-takin’, so these are all 3 coats + my Revlon QDTC.

I tell ya what, Mariah sho nuff can make a teal! She’s like a teal-y magician!

Availability: September 2017 limited editions are available now until October 2. They’ll run you $30 for the set or $11 each. Mariah says “buy your favourite or buy them all!” Ha! And she’ll have some with her in Chicago this weekend, so if you’ve got a Polish Con ticket, you know what to do. You saw the GLL Polish Con 2017 limiteds, right?
