Swatch & Review: Great Lakes Lacquer – July Release and Revamped Group Custom Trio


Hey y’all and welcome back! I hope that you had an amazing weekend. You all have heard the phase ‘the terrible twos’, well I’m here today to set the record straight, it’s not as bad as it seems. In fact, in the case of Great Lakes Lacquer, it’s the complete opposite.

This month, Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer celebrates 2 years of business. That’s 24 months, 104 weeks or 730 days…give or take, of her amazing polish. Oh how I’d love to be fly on the wall of Mariah’s polish lab, she never ceases to amaze me with her creativity and insanely gorgeous polishes. 

*chant* Mariah is so awesome! 

*response chant* How awesome is she?

She is so awesome that she found time in her busy Polish Con schedule to not create one but 2 indie-versary polishes AND a group custom trio in remembrance of Chris Cornell. 

The indie-versary polishes are 2 Year Love and Fluidly Flowing. There will also be small batch polishes and samples available including Running Like A River.

The Revamped Group Customs Trio honoring Chris Cornell, his influence and presence in Mariah’s and Elena’s (admin of Polish Revamped FB Group) lives. Chris was a huge proponent of helping children in need. Mariah chosen to help Ele’s Place, a non-profit providing counseling to children and teens grieving in Lansing, MI, where Mariah currently resides.

You can read more about Ele’s Place here. Please note, the trio will ONLY be available to members of the Facebook group.
