Introducing Lumina Lacquer Eternal Winter!

Hi everyone! Today's post is very special for me, and one that's been in the works for months. Awhile back I was contacted by Tatiana of Lumina Lacquer to create a collaboration polish with her. I love what Tatiana is doing with her brand, and I've enjoyed reviewing Lumina Lacquer on this blog, so of course I said yes! Then of course was the hard part of coming up with an idea and keeping it a secret (I'm not good at secrets).

About Eternal Winter: I mulled over several ideas, none of them really jumping out at me in any way. Then suddenly the perfect idea came to me, and I knew exactly what I wanted my collaboration polish to look like. I love white crellies with a mixture of pale blue glitter. I have a few by different indie makers, but I wanted to make something that essentially would be my dream polish.

Such mix of colours really suggests winter. Also, I'm from Canada, aka "The Great White North," so the name had to in some way relate to winter. I suggested a few names to Tatiana, including Eternal Winter, and that was the name she chose. I love how the polish and the name look and sound ethereal. The name Eternal Winter, to me, suggests a feeling of stillness and solitude, and the look of a fresh blanket of snow - of course enjoyed from the view of a nice big picture window, while inside sipping hot cocoa and sitting by the fire, because at heart I'm a chicken when it comes to very cold weather. ;)

Description and formula: Eternal Winter is a white crelly base with a gold shimmer, and different shades of blue, as well as teal, lavender, periwinkle, silver holo and iridescent glitter. There is also tiny iridescent flakies.

The formula is good, but I think it's been improved upon since I got my bottle. Because it's packed with glitter it's a bit difficult to spread - something that's easily fixed with some nail polish thinner and shaking. I used three careful coats here.

Skittlette: I also decided to do some simple nail art. For this skittlette I used Pure Ice Bikini and China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets for the gradient, and OPI Solitaire (one of the Liquid Sands) on the pinky. The studs are from the Born Pretty Store (use my code MSL91 for 10% off your order).

  2. It's so weird seeing something that is exactly what you dream, my all time favourite nail colour is pure white and i see Blogger collaboration polishes all the time and i think jelly white with pale blue hex glitter sandwiched in, so for me, this is my dream polish too. It's absolutely gorgeous :-D
