Globe & Nail Meets LaCC

I've kind of been an awful blogger, but that's what I get with no concrete blogging schedule... I haven't posted since Thursday.  Oops.  At least I have one pretty awesome excuse among all the kerfuffle of this weekend!  

On Saturday afternoon, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Farima Hakkak, the founder and creative director of La Couleur Couture.  You may remember that I swatched and reviewed her whole first collection here, and we were so surprised when we found out we were in the same city!  

Of course I had to do my nails using her polishes for the occasion!  In my 1-Year Blogiversary Giveaway post, one of the extra entries is letting me know what you'd like to see more of on my blog; quite a few of you said water marbling (which I have done previously) but I hadn't done one in quite a while.  I decided to give it another go for the occasion.  :)

I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, then water-marbled in LaCC 1950 (pink) and 2011 (yellow).  They worked perfectly for marbling, and I think it came out pretty well!  

I topped the look off with some Seche Vite.  I would have used LaCC's fabulous 2013 top coat, but my bottle ran out.  Luckily, Farima very kindly gave me another one when me met!

I got a sneak-peek of a couple polishes she's working on for her fall/winter collection, and they are absolutely stunning!!  I'm warning you now, prepare your wallets.  Seriously.  GORGEOUS. 

Also... surprise!! Farima is so generous, along with donating polishes to so many good causes and organizations focusing on women helping women, she was so kind as to provide me with a few polishes for a giveaway!!  I know it's kind of cruel of me to announce it, but I'll set up the giveaway once my 1-Year Blogiversary Giveaway is over.  It's my first time using Rafflecopter, I don't want to further confuse things by having two going on at once!  Besides, I need to re-swatch most of the polishes before then: old camera pictures. *shudder*

For now, LaCC polishes are available directly through the LaCC website and through Llarowe, as well as at a few local salons.  She's working on getting her products into some pretty awesome retail stores too, but I can't say anything yet since things aren't concrete.  ;)  I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet this amazing woman, and rest assured I'll keep you up to date with news on her much-anticipated (by me) Fall/Winter collection!  :D
