Lacquistry's HiddenTreasures.

I want to interrupt this 31 Day Challenge to show you something amazing.   First, let me give you the background story:
When Jenna from Lacquistry had closed her shop to make customs for a few months, I jumped in with both feet and ordered a lot of customs from her!  We did a lot of back and forth and I ordered quite a few. Unfortunately, some of those customs ended up bleeding or clumping, and Jenna was beside herself wondering what was going on!  I tried to help her pinpoint the issues so that she could get rid of the glitters that were giving us such a hard time.  All but one custom was fixed and Jenna asked me what we should do about that one. I told her that in her Facebook photo album, she had posted photos of polishes that did not make the cut in her store or as customs, but had been sitting around collecting dust and had hence, stood the test of time. I said, "Send me one of those!"  Several days later, I receive a HUGE package in the mail from Jenna with TEN of those very polishes!  I was floored and overwhelmed!  She told me that I had been patient and understanding and she wanted to thank me with polish.   WOW.
  For those of you who have not yet had the pleasure of buying from Lacquistry, I want to show you what you have in store for you-aside from outstanding customer service...  Below are two of the ten polishes she had sent me.  I will be posting about the others over time... To see bottle shots of the others, click HERE.
None of these came with names, so some friends of mine and I came up with names.  This first one was named by Amy from I'm Feeling Nail-venturous.  She named it, "I'm A 10!"
I'm A 10! is a foil-finish metallic purple that is somehow blackened around the edges.  It even has glimpse of pink in it! It was THIS CLOSE to being a one-coater!   I put two coats on just because there were a few bald spots here and there.
Before you start thinking these are the norm for Lacquistry, think again.  Lacquistry normally makes amazing glitter bombs!  Maybe it isn't really fair for me to show you these two, but I have a reason. I was so blown away by these that I wanted to get all of you on the band wagon with me to urge Jenna to start making something like these in addition to her amazing glitter bombs!  Are you with me on that? I don't know about you, but this polish is indeed a TEN!
Next, I have a polish that was named by my friend, Sheila, from Pointless Cafe.   She named it Raintree County.  This polish is stunning. Hands down. No if's, ands, or buts.  It is a deep, rich emerald green with blue and gold scattered holo!  It reminds me of A England's St. George somewhat.
In the lightbox, you can see the micro-fine glitter more prominently.  This is two coats.
Raintree County is part of what made me realize I had fallen for greens.  I held out for so long, but now I am an official green lover.
I had originally planned on showing these for Glitter Day on the 31 Day Challenge, but then realized I had chosen the only two Lacquistry's without any glitter in them!  Oops!
If you are new to Lacquistry, hopefully, you saw something you loved today!  I don't know when exactly she plans on reopening, but you can LIKE her Facebook page to get updates!  Also, BOOKMARK her Etsy shop for her restocks.

Love them! Jenna's so versatile, I agree she should do more than glitter bombs! :-)

YES! i love Jenna's store and her impeccable customer service. i fell in love with her shop when she had several different shred/shard polishes. i would LOVE if she started selling these type polishes in addition to the glitter bombs. and i want the shreds again! i'd love to give them as gifts to their friendly admirers! and maybe add new colors to my collection.
