Pretty Nails: Tequila Sunrise by Black Sheep Lacquer

I keep showing off Black Sheep Lacquer polishes, but it’s with good reason: because they’re awesome. Erin is pretty incredible herself, and when she asked me at the end of last year if I had any ideas for color combinations for a thermal polish, I fired a few off to her not thinking that any of them would be possible, because hey, what the heck do I know about making nail polish?

Lo and behold, Erin came through for me. I mentioned an orange-to-red-or-pink polish, reminiscent of a sunset. And I cannot even believe this beauty she sent me.

When it’s warm, it’s a cream light orange color with a gold shimmer.

As it’s exposed to cold, the color deepens to a rosy, peachy, coral, perfectly matching a brilliant sunrise or sunset.

This polish is so warm, bright, and cheerful that it’s the perfect antidote to the blustery, snowy misery that’s currently outside my front door.

I used three coats for these pictures, though I could have stopped at two. It’s got a lovely sort of satin finish that I promptly covered up with top coat because it’s a hard habit to break. And as the final touch, I followed Rachael’s stamping tutorial to put a little bit of an accent on my ring finger! Not bad for a first attempt.
