Aphrodite Lacquers - Make a Wish

 Hello Everyone!  I'm excited because today is my "Friday" because I took off Friday and with Thanksgiving tomorrow, I will have a nice long weekend!  It will still be a busy one, with dinners, our friend's wedding, and maybe some Christmas shopping?  Anyway, I'm going to see the Breaking Dawn 2 tonight with my Mom & Sister!  Don't tell, but Mr. CC is coming along too :-)  Isn't that cute? hehe

Today I am excited to show you the upcoming Birthday Collection from Aphrodite Lacquer!  Rebecca, the owner, decided to do a Birthday themed collection instead of a Holiday one because her birthday is in December!  Happy Early Birthday, Rebecca!!

Since I am always so "picture happy", I am going to do two posts today!  This post is featuring Make a Wish!  Let me start by saying that I am in love with this formula.  The jelly white base with silver glitters practically floats onto the nail!!!

 
Here is Make a Wish with two coats.  If you would have told me a year ago that I would be such a fan of sheer polishes, I would have never believed you!  But this is stunning.  For me, white jelly bases camouflage any discoloring of the nails.  I am lucky to have fairly clear nails despite all the polish I wear, but I do notice sometimes that they aren't as white as I'd like.  When I wear polishes like this, I feel like it's simple, yet gives a nice clean look.


I was actually recommended to try Aphrodite Lacquers by The Obsessed, Aire, because she always had swatches that made me drool!  I recently won a contest of hers and was able to try my first one.  I am thrilled to review these because the creations are always so beautiful and now that I've tried the formula, I am hooked!  On The Obsessed, you can see some more beautiful creations of Aphrodite Lacquer HERE!!


The glitters are not overpacked in the polish for more of a delicate feel.  It compliments the white base very well.

 
For ordering, you can shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/AphroditeLacquers.  I must warn you - there are lots of polishes that are gorgeous, so please don't let your wallets yell at me!   To stay up to date on Aphrodite Lacquer, you can follow by Facebook and Twitter (@AphroditeLacque).


I also really like the subtle shimmer through the base.



Close up!



Now this is 3 coats, and it's really glossy without a top coat, so I didn't need one.  However, I recommend always using a top coat for prolonged wear :-)



I can't decide if I like it at 2 or 3 coats!  Both are beautiful to me, but if you don't like sheer, I'm sure this would look fantastic layered over pretty much anything!  I think with three coats, it's even creamier and just looks so elegant! 




And another close up, where you can see some of the gorgeous shimmer!


Make sure to check back!  I am going to post more from Aphrodite at 3:00 p.m. (Central Time)!!

Have a great day!!!

Much Love,
Crystal

  3. I LOVE this on you!!! And I'm so happy to have been able to introduce you to Aphrodite because not only are the polishes amazing, but Rebecca is so sweet and customer-focused. Love her!
    PS: I love it at both 2 and 3 coats. Two is more delicate, like a transparent white tutu skirt...Three is elegant and stunning. xoxoxo
