Morgan Taylor Lacquer – First Look

self purchased



Ah, well…I wish I had great news today regarding the interview I told you about yesterday but things didn’t quite work out the way I was expecting. I’m really frustrated and disappointed right now but, you know what? I just need to continue to move forward. The more I dwell on things, the worse I feel so I’m just going to put it behind me. Something funny just happened to me. I went to the supermarket because I needed some groceries. If you don’t know this about me, I love to sing. Like I seriously love to sing and enjoy karaoke despite not having a good signing voice. Singing in my car is one of the things that I love to do and I usually don’t care if people look at me weird. So today I was singing Sublime’s Santeria at the top of my lungs when it came on the radio. Do you remember that song?



So right when I was in the middle of this, a car of stoner looking teens drove up next to me and they were like: “Awww yeahhh!!!” And they started singing with me. That made me crack up inside and kind of brightened my afternoon a bit.  I was planning to do my nails to kind of distract me, but instead I decided to show you my swatches of a few polishes that I purchased last week. If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for new polish brands to try it. One of the owners of the handful of beauty supply stores that I frequent is always keeping me in the loop about new brands or releases. He had mentioned Morgan Taylor Lacquer a few months ago so I was super excited to see that they had gotten them in. I went a little gaga when I saw the full display but I held back by just purchasing 3 polishes instead of the 20 I wanted. Are you ready to see my swatches of the three Morgan Taylor Lacquer beauties I purchased?








Hot Hot Tamale is one of those really bright red orange colors that make your nails look like they are on fire!  The formula on this polish was spectacular: super pigmented, smooth and glossy. I applied two regular coats for full coverage. I kept thinking of Hot Tamales the whole time. I may like this color even more since tamales are like my favorite holiday food of ALL TIME.








I don’t know if you remember the craze that Sephora by OPI Metro Chic caused when it first came out. Ever since then, I have been in love with smoky purple/taupe polishes. Met My Match is a smoky purple–definitely not very taupe-y. Again, the formula was perfection in a bottle and I only needed two coats for full opacity.








And lastly, here is Gotta Have Hue. Yes, I love this super hard. The color is gorgeous and the application was flawless. This was nearly a one coater but 2 coats are ideal here.


So what do I think of Morgan Taylor so far? Uhm, home run! Any time I try a new brand, I always go for their creme polishes first because that is my favorite finish. If a brand can’t make excellent creme polishes, I usually walk away. I am so happy with the formula, application and brush of these polishes which is good and bad; good because I didn’t waste my money and bad because I will now be wasting A LOT of my money on these. ha! If you can get your hands on these polishes, I highly recommend them. I’ll be picking up some new colors soon with different finishes to see how those perform.

I so appreciate all the wonderful comments you all left in my last post. I read every single comment, and I can’t tell you how much it means to me that some of you publicly or privately share your stories and words of encouragement. Never in a million years did I think I would find so many wonderful people in this lovely community–thank you all for taking the time to interact with me here, twitter and facebook.

Much love,
