Lacquistry: Midnight in Schuman Forest

Whoops, spent a few days away and forgot to schedule any posts! No worries, though. Fun was had at HK Disneyland, and I'm back in the swing with Midnight in Schuman Forest, from Lacquistry.

Midnight in Schuman Forest caught my eye with its pretty, jewel-toned colours. I'm usually into brighter shades, but I really like this combination--its rich, deep colour scheme still has plenty of sparkle and shine! It includes large, medium, and small hexes of navy, green, silver, and brown, all in a clear base. Here, I'm wearing about a coat and a half over Essie Going Incognito (a dusty forest-green with a hint of teal). The glitter applied easily enough with a mix of stroking and some dabbing to fill a couple of spots, lying flat and looking glassy-smooth with a coat of SV on top.

Midnight in Schuman Forest isn't currently listed at Lacquistry's etsy shop (was it a Limited Edition?), but after a good first experience with this brand, I'll be ordering a couple more in 3...2...1...

    It's a very interesting, kind of mysterious layering, you have accomplished - looks great!

    1. Thank you so much, Maria! I'm never sure about choosing the right undies, whether I should be trying to match the glitter or give it more contrast. I actually got out a paper plate and dabbed this one over about 6 different polishes to pick the one I liked the best, and I'm still second-guessing! >_<

    1. Thank you, Kelly! Husband and I are such suckers for Disney that it's almost dangerous having one in the same city as us--I think we'd live inside the park if they let us! :P

    1. Aw, thank you, ChiChi! We ended up not doing much of the park because it was much more crowded than usual, but it was still nice just to veg in the hotel, chow at the awesome buffet, and enjoy not being in the noisy, bustling city for a couple of days. ;)

  6. Gorgeous as always! One question though, do you have indie polishes shipped to Hong Kong? Around how much would shipping cost? thanks! :)

    1. Thanks, Louise! Yes, I do get the majority of the indies I've tried shipped here to HK, so I'm limited to the ones who offer int'l shipping. It can get expensive, around $6 or $7 US for just one bottle, but then it's only maybe .50 or a buck for each one after that. I usually wait until I see 3 or 4 from the same maker to order at once.

  8. I love how this is both dark and dusky, yet really lively at the same time.
