Aliquid Lacquer Two Pleasant Peninsula's Collection!

Hey guys!
Nothing To Disclose

Well since I'm from Michigan, I obviously had to have the Aliquid Lacquer Two Pleasant Peninsulas collection! The descriptions I will be using are from the Aliquid Lacquer website.

The formula's on all of these were very good; Wolverine Loves Spartan was a little thick but it's also packed with glitters in a crelly base.

Do you like my beautiful nail polishing mat? LOL! 

Wolverines Love Spartan - 3 coats. This was a little thick due to the glitters and my impatience in waiting between coats :-) I did use a top coat with this polish.
This polish combines the colors of Michigan's two largest universities, Michigan State and the University of Michigan. They may be rivals in real life, but they work together in perfect harmony on your nails!

Wolverine Loves Spartan is a white crelly with matte green, blue and yellow hexes.

Petoskey Stone - 2 coats
Inspired by Michigan's state stone!
Petoskey Stone is a warm grey with green, gold and brown shimmers, plus holographic sparkle. 

People of Three Fires - 2 coats
This polish is named for the alliance of three closely related Algonquian tribes native to Michigan and neighboring areas: the Ojibwe, Ottawa and Potawatomi. These peoples developed a pictographic writing system to record their history, myths, and medicinal recipes, which continue to be passed on to the next generation.

People of the Three Fires is a brick red polish with sparkles of blue, purple and red.

Cherry Festival - 2 coats
Michigan produces more sour cherries than any other U.S. state (sour cherries are the kind used in pies and preserves). Every July, Traverse City holds a cherry festival that attracts over 500,000 visitors! 
Cherry Festival is a bubblegum pink crelly with red and silver-green hexes, plus gold shimmer and flecks.

I'm Heading Strait to Mackinac - 2 coats
The two peninsulas of Michigan are separated by the narrow Straits of Mackinac, where Lakes Michigan and Huron meet. The Mackinac Bridge, one of the longest suspension bridges in the world, connects the two halves of the state. One of Michigan's top tourist attractions, Mackinac Island, lies just a few miles from the bridge. Also... fudge! SO much delicious fudge in Mackinaw City and on Mackinac Island!
I'm Heading Strait to Mackinac is a serene blue polish with a soft holographic effect and flecks of green, blue and silver.

Yooper - 3 coats
Inspired by the wild forests, cold lakes and mountains of the Upper Peninsula. "Yooper" is an affectionate term for residents of "the U.P."
Yooper is a dark green jelly full of flecks of green, blue, gold and brown, plus holographic sparkle.

Lake Michigan Sunset - 3 coats
Lake Michigan Sunset is a sheer slate grey polish with flecks of gold, orange and pink. This polish was inspired by a photograph Alison took on a family vacation.

Motor City - 3 coats
An homage to Detroit, home of the automobile and Motown music!
Motor City is a black jelly with lots of metallic and holographic circles and squares in various sizes, plus silver flakes.

I really loved this collection. As I get older, I am loving my state and appreciating it more than I used to. Michigan sometimes gets a bad reputation (particularly Flint and Detroit) but it truly is a beautiful state to live, visit, or vacation in! So yay Aliquid Lacquer/Alison for creating a lovely collection to showcase the beauty and history of my state :-)

Talk to you soon!
