Hey everyone and welcome to the middle of the week. I hope you all had a nice holiday with your family if you celebrate Thanksgiving and that everyone survived Black Friday shopping. I know I put a small but still noticeable dent in my wallet. In honor of the holiday season and my protest to the cooling temperatures I decided to share with you a nail polish released this past summer from Lollipop Passe Lacquer called The Get-Fresh Flow. I know I know this time of year I should be showing you glistening white or cream colored polishes, or maybe deep velvety greens sprinkled with Gold or even a Bright red that would make Rudolph jealous, but I'm a rebel and I pretty much do what I want with my blog.
So you remember that wonderful boyfriend I mentioned in my last post, you know the one featuring Nevermind's Hadephilia? Well, he's not only wonderful but also extremely supportive of my blog and when he found out that I wanted the Summer of '96 collection, which The Get-Fresh Flow is from he bought it for me. Now I normally don't get entire collections but this one was particularly special to me because now I'm going to date myself here, '96 was the year I graduated Highschool. Some of you are doing the math now aren't you, figuring out just how old that makes me... while you finish adding that up I'm going to go ahead and get to the polish.

The Get-Fresh Flow is a multi-chrome polish that shifts between blue and teal with a hint of green. This color really comes alive in direct sun, but still, has a playful color shift in regular lighting. I was lucky enough to have a bright sunny day to photograph in. I won't be getting those now that winter has started to hit Minnesota.
The Application was smooth and easy with the first coat being a bit on the thin side and slightly sheer, Full opacity and a nice even finish can be achieved with 2 coats. I've shown The Get-Fresh Flow here as 2 coats plus top coat. As you might notice there are a few brushstrokes visible but you really don't notice them unless you really look.
This color also makes a great base for nail art. I decided to go with just an accent nail because I didn't want to cover up all that gorgeous blue color. but also thought it needed something. Check it out...
This simple yet delicate design came from Uber Chic plate 10-2 which is the same plate I used for my Bling and swirls manicure. I may have gotten a bit excited when these plates showed up at my door and used them for a few manicures, so you'll be seeing a lot of them coming up on the blog. But don't worry there are a lot of images so you shouldn't see the same one twice.
The Get-Fresh Flow is still available for purchase if you'd like to pick up a bottle for yourself. The rest of the collection is also available if you want the whole set. And don't forget to check out Lollipop Posse Lacquer on Facebook for all the information about upcoming sales and new releases. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
