Raspberry Rainbow: Liquid Lacquer Tea For One

Hey everybody!  I hope you are having a great weekend so far...I'm getting ready to go off and spend a couple of days with my hubby. <3

I wanted to wear a low maintenance polish for my trip, and holos always seem to be very agreeable on me as far as chipping and tip wear all those annoying things that bedevil my nails.  So this was the perfect opportunity to try out a polish I got a couple of months ago during a big Liquid Lacquer sale, Tea For One.


Isn't this a lovely shade of purply pink?  The holo is not a crazy strong linear, but it's there.  And I just love the name.   But gosh, wouldn't you WANT company for tea whilst wearing this lovely polish?  I'd throw a whole tea party just to show off  :D


One thing I really like about holo polish is how indoors it looks sort of dusty, but then you turn your hand, and it bursts into a rainbow. :)  A split personality in a polish is so much more palatable than one in a human! :P


I used 3 coats of Tea For One for the photos.  The application was smooth with no dragging and no cleanup.

I hesitated about posting this today...some of you may have seen the drama going on about Liquid Lacquer.  Her shop is closed right now due to personal issues and her Facebook page is getting...uh...animated? :)  But...in the end I decided to post anyway because this polish is JUST SO PRETTY, and I am a big fan of Liquid Lacquer polishes period.


So I'm sure you can see that holding this one back would have been totally selfish of me.  I really hope Liquid Lacquer is up and running again soon!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely and safe weekend! <3

  2. Oh, it's this company all the drama's about? That's a bummer! This gorgeous hunk o' holo is part of a Led Zeppelin themed collection. Led Zeppelin has been my favorite band since high school. This particular song, Tea For One, is part of their sixth and most hard rock-styled album. This is a pink holo. YYYY THS COMPANY HAVING ISSUES?!! We needs this polish.

    1. I know what you mean! They do look so smooth, and sometimes they don't apply quite that way, but this one absolutely did! :)

    1. Wow...thanks! <3 I do rather obsess over my photos...maybe one day they WILL make a magazine! :) I will either wear a holo, a jelly glitter, or a foil if I need to wear it for more than 2 days. And this color of purple is one that I use as a neutral. :)
