Nail of the Day: Philly Loves Lacquer - 2 AM Coffee Run

Nothing to Disclose
*This product is Cruelty Free 

I'm excited to show you my first Philly Loves Lacquer polish that was my nail of the day today: 2 AM Coffee Run.

You know when people are contacting you to tell you about a polish because it seemed tailor-made for you, it must be good. And that's what happened with this one. Anyone who knows me or has been following me here for long knows I'm addicted to coffee, a subtle holo, browns and bacon. Well, there's no bacon in this, but it's definitely a trifecta!

And it's a cool-toned brown to boot! This one is part of Philly Loves Lacquer's Shopping Madness Trio.

Continued after the jump...

2 AM Coffee Run is a stunning cool-toned dark brown creme with a subtle holo and a one-coat formula, if you wish. I used two coats here, but if I had been in a hurry, I could have done one coat and it would have still been perfect. I prefer this exact finish for this type of dries to a semi-gloss rather than a high gloss, but I do have photos with top coat to show you as well. Two coats and no top coat for most of the photos (except where indicated). I'm sorry the sun didn't make an appearance, but it's gorgeous with or without the sun.

It's like a perfectly rich, dark roast coffee.

Artificial lighting, no top coat...

If I'd ordered a custom, I couldn't have gotten a more perfect polish for me - for my personal taste! What do you think? Does it call to you like it does to me?

Well if so, fear not! This one has been so popular that it will be coming back to Philly Loves Lacquer as part of the regular line-up!

Right now, it's only available as part of the Shopping Madness Trio in minis. (Speaking of which...I have swatches of the other two in the Shopping Madness Trio here, which are both currently available to purchase separately, in the next day or so, so stay tuned!) But as I said, the full sized 2 AM Coffee Run will be back soon!

Philly Loves Lacquer polishes are available at the shop here and retail for between $9.50 and $12 for full-sized polishes. You can also follow Philly Loves Lacquer at the links below:
