GREAT LAKES LACQUER | THE TRUE NORTH COLLECTION

Good evening loves! I have a beautiful collection from Great Lakes Lacquer to share with you tonight! This is the True North Collection which is 8 gorgeous shades inspired by the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and captures some of Mariah's favorite places. In Michigan, there is 'Up North' and 'The True North' and to most, you don't reach the True North until you cross the bridge! Read on for more info!

*All photos are taken indoors under 30W Daylight Bulbs.
*I angle my hand in direct lighting as well as low lighting to capture as many of the shifts as I am able.
*All photos shown with a fast dry top coat unless otherwise stated.
