Anchor & Heart Lacquer Through the Stone Collection Swatches and Review: I Was Born For You

Anchor & Heart I Was Born For You (3 coats)

Hi guys! I know, it's been awhile. I was in Denver for 4 days, but I think this should be the last weekend I will be traveling for work this year. As soon as I got home I had some in-laws at the house so I've been busy at the home front as well. Other than that, not much is going on with me. Tonight I have a new brand on the blog. I've been meaning to try Anchor & Heart for months, and after seeing bottle shots from the Through the Stone Collection, I knew I needed to bite the bullet and finally purchase. Multichrome polishes are still all the rage, but I've been trying to be a bit more selective on the polishes I buy because some are very similar. 

I Was Born For You is a blackened plum base with flashes of emerald and blue. It also has a sprinkling of iridescent holographic microglitter and a scattered holographic finish as seen in the last photo. It slightly reminds me Whooo Are Youuu from Vapid Lacquer, so if you weren't able to buy that one, you may want to purchase this one. It doesn't have the exact same shift, and Vapid's has the larger microflakes which isn't in Anchor & Heart. It applied perfectly in 3 coats. Depending on your application, you may be able to get away with just 2 coats. Even with the microglitter, not too much elbow grease was needed for removal. 

The Through the Stone Collection is currently not for sale, but good news, the pre-order starts on Oct. 13th and will continue through Oct. 16th. Each polish is $12 each, or you can purchase the whole collection for $77 (a saving of $1 per polish).  I've been really impressed with other polishes Taryn has released recently, so I will definitely be making another order. You can learn more about Anchor & Heart on their website, Instagram, Facebook, or Facebook Fan group page.

Thanks, Freshie! As a matter of fact, I never left my hotel! I was there for work and had really long days. I was able to catch the snow on Monday though. Yuck!
