Lantern & Wren Laughing at Clouds

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


Are you enjoying your summer?! I was in Costco yesterday, and saw they have the fall/winter jackets out already. Sorry, but it' mid-July and you're not snatching my summer from me yet!! Back off! I have a good month and a half yet!!!


Okay, sorry about that outburst, but somebody had to draw a line. Seriously.


Today we're going to take a look at the first August Polish Pick Up polish I have to share with you...August's theme is Musicals, which makes me super happy because I love a good musical, and there's so much awesome inspiration out there for the makers.


Lantern & Wren's inspiration was Singin' in the Rain, and here's the stormy-sky awesomeness she created, Laughing at Clouds:

Lantern & Wren Laughing at Clouds is a sparkly blackened teal shimmer with lashings of purple peeping in the shadows:

This is two easy coats of formula and application perfection. Carleigh just changed over to new bottles, and these are sleek and divine. The handle has a no-slip grip, and the brushes are wide and luscious--the kind that let you polish your nail in two swipes with no fuss.  Oh, and by the way? In every bottle, there's a little white umbrella glitter waiting to surprise you at random!


The polish itself is a bit more sparkly than your average shimmer, and has beautiful night-sky depth to it:






To further celebrate the 'Singin' in the Rain' theme,  the polish comes with some adorable purple umbrella glitters:




So of course you know I had to do some nail art with them! First I masked off the bottom portion of the nails, then I stamped with UberChic Beauty Texture-licious 03 and Hit The Bottle Polish Peacock Shimmer. I removed the mask, and stuck on my glitters, so it would look like they were blocking the rain:

I also matted this one:

I think this polish is very pretty matted, but in terms of the design, I think it's better shiny--because of the 'rain' theme, it needs to look wet. :)


You can get this polish during August's Polish Pickup, August 3-6th. In the meantime, check out the Polish Pickup Pack for sneak peek of August's polishes, and check out Lantern & Wren for all kinds of goodies!
