Polish Con New Orleans 2019 Show Specials and Limited Editions from Leesha's Lacquer

*press samples*

Hi guys! Polish Con NOLA is less than a week away, and I have the show specials and limited editions from Leesha's Lacquer to share with you. All of these have limited availability at the show and on the Polish Con Fairy site. Check out the site now to put any of these that interest on your wishlist so you can purchase them at 1 PM central time on Saturday, April 6th. I'm sad to say I won't be attending the show, but hopefully one of these days I'll be able to take a weekend off to go. 

Event Exclusive

Leesha's Lacquer Happy to be Bayou (2 coats)
Price: $12
Cap: 40 bottles-full-size only

Happy to be Bayou is a deep violet base with gold shimmer/flakes and pink/green aurora shimmer. The aurora shimmer really stands out in this one! It needed just 2 coats for full opacity, and had a nice thicker consistency with no texture. 

Limited Edition

pouvior, foi, justice (1 coat) over a black creme base 
Price: $12
Cap: 35 bottles-full-size only

Pourvior, foi, justice is a flakie topper with the 3 colors of Mardi Gras with purple, gold, and green flakes and a touch of holo shimmer. This one is chock full of flakies, and just one thin coat laid down plenty of flakes. It dried with no texture and a perfect consistency. 

Show Specials ($11 each)
Only 15 bottles of each will be made (full-size only) and no more will be available after the show. 

Leesha's Lacquer Bayou a Beignet (3 coats)

Bayou a Beignet is my top pick of the show specials. I know, no surprise there. This is a light cream crelly base with a rainbow of ucc flakies. I'm used to seeing flakies with grey or white bases, but I've never seen anything like this one. It was a bit sheer, to really make the flakes pop, but it fully covered in 3 thin coats (and dried with minimal texture). 

Leesha's Lacquer Crawfish, Crayfish, Crawdad (2 coats)

What a great name for a polish! What do you call them in your neck of the woods? I think we used crawfish and crayfish interchangeably in Ohio. Anyway, this one is a bright red shimmer with iridescent blue flakes in the background. This one was very pigmented and needed just 2 coats for full coverage. It dried with no texture and was easy to remove. 

Leesha's Lacquer Down the MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI (2 coats)

Down the MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI is an eye-searing neon orange with green contrasting shimmer and various ucc flakes. You know I love contrasting shimmers, so this is another top pick for me. This would also make for a great pedicure. I used 2 coats for my photos, and the formula was slightly thicker, but not problematic. Love it! 

Leesha's Lacquer Fais Do Do (3 coats)

Fais Do Do is a flakie-filled multichrome that shifts from blue to purple. Pictures really don't do this one justice. You can either use 3 thinner coats (as I did above), or use it as a topper over your favorite base. It dried with some texture due to the amount of flakes, but had a really good formula. You can use either 1 coat of a thicker topcoat to smooth it out, or 2 coats of a thin one. 

Leesha's Lacquer From MLPS to LA (2 coats)

From MLPS to LA is a neon blue base with small iridescent glitters and larger iridescent flakes with a scattered holo finish. Spring is the perfect time for these iridescent flakes, and I'm so happy to see them in more polishes. This one was opaque in 2 coats, and dried with just a little texture. 

Leesha's Lacquer Who Dat? (2 coats)

Who Dat? is another top pick for me. It's a bright raspberry purple base with iridescent flakes and aurora shimmer. Not only do we have those beautiful flakes again, but this time it comes with aurora shimmer! This one applied like From MLPS to LA, so check that out above. 

Leesha's Lacquer Who Do? VOODOO (2 coats)

I apologize I took so many picture of Who Do? VOODOO, but I wanted to really capture the complexity here. It's a deep blurple holo with a blue/pink/gold/multichrome effect. The holo is strong with this one, and the multichrome effect adds interest in low light. It applied perfectly in just 2 coats, and dried with no texture. Love it! 

There you have it! If you aren't able to make it to the show, head on over to the Polish Con Fairy site to put these exclusives on your wish list before they sell out (site opens for purchasing at 1 PM central time on Saturday, April 6th). All polishes will be available until 11:59 PM ET Monday, April 8th, or until sold out. Some of these are very limited, so get there right at 1 PM. My top picks are Happy to be Bayou, Bayou a Beignet, Down the MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI, Who Dat?, and Who Do? VOODOO. I know, it's a long list. I'm not done with Leesha's Lacquer, because I have their Spring Collection to show you tomorrow (which will also debut at Polish Con). You can find out more about Leesha's Lacquer on their website, Facebook Group, and Instagram pages.
