Polish Pickup: Urban Legends (part 2)

1850 Artisan Lacquer Earthquake Weather
A smokey, blackened burgundy that leans slightly toward dark brown and has shifts from golden to burgundy and purple. Topped with iridescent multichrome flakies shifting from gold to green and red.

This enigmatic color is inspired by the Earthquake Weather urban legend popular in Southern California which says that unusually warm weather without any wind is a sign that an earthquake is imminent.
Cap 150

This one is a morhper! In some lighting it looks burgundy and in others brown. I like the smokey effect of this polish! Shown is two coats with topcoat.

Great Lakes Lacquer Nessy
A sea green filled with a silvery green to blue shifting shimmer.
No Cap

The silvery shifting shimmer is super reflective! In some lighting this polish leans more teal and in others more blue. Shown is two coats with topcoat. One thick coat may suffice, as this is fairly opaque.

Literary Lacquers This Dish is Cheap Yet Tasty
Amy's inspiration is from her favorite urban legend which has a few variations. In the older version, a woman loved the Chinese characters on her menu so much that she knitted them into a sweater. In the newer version, it's a tattoo, but the end result is the same. The unsuspecting woman finds out much later that her sweater/tattoo says "This Dish is Cheap Yet Tasty." The color is inspired by Amy's best friend and her obsession with anything Magenta.
No cap

This hue is a favorite of mine, somewhere in between hot pink and purple, very berry and I am loving the linear holo rainbow! Shown is one coat with topcoat.
