Urban Lacquer Chimney Burn with Lit Up Like The Tree

***press sample***


Just in time for the unexpected cold snap in Arizona - from the mid to high 70's during the day to the chilling 40's overnight - I present to you, Urban Lacquer's Chimney Burn. We have already used our Kiva 4 times and plan to buy our tree next week but my fingers are already Lit Up Like The Tree. Couldn't resist the silliness.

Urban Lacquer has a beautiful winter themed collection. The first polish I applied is Chimney Burn which happens to be her first foray into a multichrome. It is a taupey grey with purple/blue/turquoise flecks/flash/shimmer. It can appear purple, orange, blue, grey or any number of colors depending upon which angle you view it at.

I applied 4 thin coats over a base coat and a ridge filler. You must be patient when applying the coats, allowing each to fully dry before applying the next coat. The polish comes alive around the 3rd coat but I needed 4. All images were taken indoors using an OttLite.

I then decided to jazz it up with Lit Up Like The Tree - a killer glittah bomb containing stars, demilunes, circles, squares, hexes and various sizes of microglitter in gold, silver AND holographic finishes swirling around in a clear base. This polish gives Lynn a run for her money. It was so easy to apply. Nothing got caught on the sides of the bottle. Every brush stroke yielded a frenzy of glitter - perfection!

Notice how Chimney Burn really shines through the glitter topper. This is 2 applications of Lit Up Like The Tree over Chimney Burn and 1 coat of HKG top coat to smooth it all out.

I hope you enjoy the final effect. I am now officially ready for the Holidays ☼
