The Lacquer Ring – Fuchsia

You guys, I am so happy that I got a chance to post today. As you may have heard, Southern California is in the midst of rainmaggeddon and all hell has broken loose. The state is going down in flames–er, water? Yes, I’m kidding. We’ve had sporadic showers in the last two days, but people act like it’s the new biblical deluge. Everyone forgets how to drive, which causes tons of accidents, people fight each other Hunger Games style for parking spots close to the entrance of the store and it’s just general mayhem all around. I sit back in my car wondering what would happen if we had real horrible weather like some places back east–I guess we would all die instantly. For reals. So today The Lacquer Ring is bringing you the color fuchsia per Lesley’s choice. I pretty much love the color so I am very happy with Lesley’s choice. When it came to deciding which polish to use, I went with the obvious: Sation Fan The Flames Fuchsia.

Sation Fan the Flames Fuchsia 1Sation Fan the Flames Fuchsia 2Sation Fan the Flames Fuchsia is a super vibrant neon that dries to a satin finish. I adore this polish because he formula is perfection. Even though it dries kinda of satiny, it’s not difficult to apply, and it’s super opaque. I’ve been wondering what happened to Sation/Miss Professional Nail because I haven’t seen a collection from them in over a year and their FB page basically has no activity. I loved their collections so I’m sad that they fell off the face of the earth.

Shimmer Polish Alice 1Shimmer Polish Alice 2To finish everything off, I did a sort of sloppy glitter gradient with Shimmer Polish Alice (press sample) which is probably my favorite Shimmer beauty. I top coated the whole thing which gave my whole mani some shine–I kind of miss the satin look of the polish so maybe next time I’ll use a matte top coat.

What do you think of this mani? Is it to blinged out for you? I personally love it even though I wish I had done a better job with my glitter gradient. Don’t forget to check out the other fuchsia manis below. Our next prompt is all about stars so I need to start figuring out what I will do. Anyway, I hope you liked today’s post, and I will talk to you soon!

  1. Pretty! But yeah, I was wondering whatever happened to Sation. I have a few of their polishes that I’ve found at Marshalls/TJX and they’re all great; color and formula wise. Hope they’re not gone for good.

    1. Sadly, it seems that they are gone. I feel like they put out so much so fast once they rebranded that maybe it harmed them? I haven’t seen anything new from them in forever, but I also hope maybe it’s just a hiatus.

  2. “I guess we would all die instantly.” True story.
    I got all happy when I read that you approved of my color choice. 🙂 I’m glad it’s one that looks good on ya, too. 🙂
    We picked similar colors…neons with great opacity that dry satin. I will miss Sation if they are gone…their crèmes in particular, since I’ve had the best experience with those.
    I love the final result and don’t see anything sloppy about the gradient. You top-coated it in my honor, haha.
