Takko Lacquer Heart Shaped Box

Nothing to Disclose

Today I have a little swatch of Takko Lacquer Heart Shaped Box. This polish came out as a mystery polish around Valentine's Day. I didn't get it then because I'm not into mysteries, but picked it up during her sale last month because, why not?

Let's talk about this polish. Pink, holo, flakies: I should love it. And I do! But only in the sunlight. In the sun, Heart Shaped Box is a vibrant pink polish with a tiny bit of holo and awesome multichrome flakes that mostly pull black.

Here is a close up of the flakes, they really are awesome.

Here's the polish in the shade where it completely transforms, and maybe not in the best way for my skin tone. It pulls super metallic/frost like and looks kind of "old lady" mauve on my skin. I'm glad I waited for sun, because this is not flattering on me in this way.

I can't decide. Do I keep a polish that looks great in the sunlight but meh in the shade? Not just meh, but kind of unflattering?
