Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... turned FOUR! Celebrating with a Too Fancy Lacquer exclusive custom giveaway

Hi loves! A while back this blog turned four years old already, and while I already had 2 giveaways to celebrate, I knew there was one more prize to arrive and be given away.. A special made, custom shade from Too Fancy Lacquer! As you might know I work with Charlene a lot, and I thought it would be great to have something created especially for this blog and giveaway. She made up 2 bottles of this shade, 1 for me and 1 for a lucky winner out there!



Now, the name is really really awesome (at least I think so ;-)): Too Fancy Lacquer Keep Calm and Love Varnish. How adorable is that :D? 



It's a very deep dark teal leaning green, with a holographic finish and filled with golden/copper flakes. The flakes don't really show up in the finish though, but in more dim lighting you'll notice it a bit. 



Application was easy though you might find the shade to be a tad thick. Nothing a little thinner won't solve, and because of the thickness it's very opaque too, so you barely need 2 coats. Finish with a shiny top coat and it looks perfect!

Charlene couldn't have created a better custom for me and to celebrate, and I really hope you like it as much as I do. If you want a chance at winning this shade, please enter the giveaway down below.



What do you think of this custom shade? And have you ever had an indie create a custom shade for you?

  7. The photo of this polish on my feed captured my attention before I even had the time to read the title of the post. OMG it'd be great to have such a gorgeous shade! You did a very good job. I love teals so I'm crossing fingers.
    I've never had a custom polish created and if I think about it many shades come to my mind! I hope I'll have one one day!

  13. What an awesome color! I've never had my own custom shade, I guess it would be blue and probably glittery :-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I only tried a few times to do something by myself but they were all fails ;-)

  17. I tried to have Charlene make me one for my Bday this year but unfortunately she is too busy. This one is absolutely stunning - it is a shame that there are only 2 bottles to go around. The one that wins this is a truly lucky gal (or guy).

  18. This is gorgeous. And yes, I have a lovely polish from The Nail Junkie called Nosferatu - awesome and so me :)

  20. How exciting! In fact I did have a pair of custom TFLs made last year for me and the blogger Schette - it was very fun.

  21. Thanks for the giveaway!! I have never had a custom polish made, but it is something I have always thought about doing...

  22. No, I haven't. I have been waiting for something to 'speak' to me so that I can get inspired. Was thinking of having a polish made to match my Dad's eyes who passed in 2009. Its still emotional so I haven't taken the jump yet.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm an indie maker, so I get to make custom polishes for other people! I love it when they're happy with their polishes!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have never had a custom shade. There are so many shades available, I can't see that I'd need one. Especially with all the nail art ideas for combining shades.

  44. I have had a custom shade created, one that I've won in a giveaway. I created a glitter polish called Snow Cone with tropical colored glitters because I was born in Hawaii.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Breathtaking isn't even enough to describe this polish! WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would love to have a custom color created for myself, i never even though about such a thing!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've never been lucky enough to have one made for me ~ Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm still pretty new in the polish world (not that you'd guess it from my Helmer contents), and really really new in the indie world, so no, I've never had a custom polish made. I must admit though, that I was daydreaming about a LemonLacquer collection last night and what would have to be included. :) Obviously a yellow and teal, but also an orange and a deep burgundy. It would be so hard to choose!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is such a pretty color !

    ReplyDelete
  50. Not yet, but it's been on my to-do list for way too long! (LOVE this color!)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Nope - I don't think I'd ever manage to narrow it down to one shade.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've never had a custom shade made and honestly, I don't even know how I'd begin narrowing down what I wanted!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Yes from too fancy lacquer! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. No I haven't. But I wish I did!

    ReplyDelete
  55. YES!! Charlene created the most beautiful red holo polish for me, she is so very talented!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I do have a custom Happy Hands - it's still one of my prized polishes! :D Congrats on your blogiversary!!

  64. I have had a few customs created, by a Indie in my country - Australia & 1 in the USA. They are both gorgeous, but i would die for a custom by TFL!!! I suppose having a polish named by me is a fantastic runner up though ;)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Congrats on 4 years! No I have not but have always wanted to have one created! Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  73. I have, buuuut..I won a custom polish made by this one indie maker, had it made to remind me of my daughter and named it after her; but the lady used white pigment that turned the polish mostly white and not purple(hopefully no more indies have that certain white pigment). Gawh, lol. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  74. no, I have not, :(

    ReplyDelete
  75. Yes, but not for me, for a friend who was expecting a baby! Ms. Sparkle created it for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I havent, but Ive always wanted to!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I have! It was a custom created by Cameo Colours Lacquers, and it was named "More Than All the Stars in the Sky." It's a beautiful navy blue colors with lots of holographic glitter. I'm a sucker for blue & holo polishes :)
