Takko Mani-Bomb-omb!

Ok so what exactly is a "Takko Mani-Bomb" It's the same concept of a bath fizzy or bath bomb but for your hands! The Mani-Bomb is packed with Vitamin E, it helps strengthen nails and helps peeling nails. It's also really great for your skin!  It is also infused with Aloe Vera, to soften skin and help fight bacteria. Inside the Mani-Bomb there is a bit of sugar & shea butter scrub. It's to scrub away dead skin cells, moisturize and soften skin and cuticles.  okie dokie! So lets begin...

You are going to need... 
A bowl or container large enough you can dip both hands in
A towel or paper towels (regular napkins can get messy)

1. Fill the container half way up with water at your preferred temp, some like it hot some like it cold ;) Then lay the container on a flat surface. 
2. Now drop the bomb into the water and dive your hands right in! The bomb will start dissolving and releasing the Vitamin E and Aloe Vera in the water. Let your nails, cuticles, and skin absorb the goodies from the infused water!
3. After the fizzy-fying action stops it will leave behind a bit of sugar, cocoa butter & shea butter scrub. Use it to exfoliate your hands (You can dip your forearms and elbows too and exfoliate away)
4. After you're done scrubbing dip your hands one more time in the infused water and remove all the scrub residue left out. 
5. Once you're done your hands may feel a little oily. Don't rinse off! Massage your hands, then use a towel or paper towel to wipe down your hands (forearms & elbows too) Then just let your skin absorb the rest of the nutrients.

Tah-Dah!! You have baby butt soft hands now ^_^ I came up with this because I suffer from winter hands (even in Florida were it barely gets cold and don't let me get started on how bad it gets when I go to NY) Also I'm allergic to most dish detergents, after doing dishes my skin gets red dry and irritated badly. Aaannnddd I have also suffered a bad case of the peelies before =( I had to trim down my nails and massage them with Vitamin E and had to go without polish for a week! ::GASP::

Hasta la pasta!

Takko Lacquer Winter Collection 2012 & Takko Mani-Bombs!!!

Good Day Lacquer-heads!! I have some new news for you guys that I'm so stoked to share!!
First of all I have two new colors coming out Nov 16th!

This is a very sensual red, that oozes sexiness. It's for those bombshells who turn heads and light up a room walking in.  "Va Va Voom" is a deep wine metallic crimson red with linear and scattered holo <3

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise: what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You See? Makes sense? Nonsense! "We're All Mad Here" yup we kinda are and it's great! This one is a deep sea blue with orange shimmer and green flakies!

Nextttt it's a new invention of mine called a Takko Mani-Bomb!
So what is it exactly... it's a spa treatment, moisturizer and exfoliator for your hands rolled up in one! If your familiar with bath fizzies or bath bombs this is the same concept but for your hands (arms and elbows included ^_^) Though only white ones are pictured these will come in various colors ^_^ And these will be FREE yup FREE! Who doesn't like free stuff? As a token of my appreciation to you all!! It will be one per customer with purchase starting Nov 16th to the end of the year! Instructions on how to use it will be coming up on the blog next week since they're a little more complicated then reg bath bombs. They are packed with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera and are filled with a Shea Butter Sugar Scrub, also they are fragrance-free so it won't clash with perfumes and lotions ^_^

Hope you guys all love it!! <3

Feeling Grateful!

So I'm a fairly new indie brand in the scene of this crazy lacquer world. I have been reflecting on my journey so far with you lacquer-heads and I must say I have so much to be grateful for! First of all I have over 100, 100% positive feedback on Etsy! I cried when I saw that!! Then I opened a blog to keep  up with you guys and now I have over 2,000 views (^0^) Some more happy tears were shed, lol. And now I have over 60 followers on Twitter ^_^ Ok so those numbers may not seem like a lot compare to other indie brands who have been at this way longer, but to me they were very very very important and meaningful miles stones. And I have all you guys to thank! 

Takko Lacquer's intro to the nail polish world didn't start off smoothly, there was bumps on the road, some cyber-bullying and intimidation, and negativity. But my motto "Peace, Love & Polish!" and all you amazing ladies gave me the strength to continue on and continue working hard to give you guys the best product and customer service with the ethics and beliefs I can provide! This journey has also taken me to meet some really amazing bloggers like Rie from Nails and Noms Anneke from Pinpoint Polish and Bridget from Painted Nail just to name a few. All the bloggers I have encountered have been incredibly encouraging, hilarious, amazing, awesome, lacquerlicious, beautiful, comedic, delightful, I can just go on and on.... 

So starting Nov 16th, I have a free gift with purchase to thank everyone. It's something I worked hard to "invent" and make for you guys, it's just to thank you all! Tomorrow I will post up what it is along with two new colors that will come out this month ^_^ So to you all beautiful people you...
