Takko Physical Graffiti and Jabberwocky
There are some indie brands you come across that have such gorgeous polishes but for some reason you just never pull the trigger on ordering them, Takko is that brand for me. I’ve seen bottle shots and swatches of Takko for a while now and everytime I think, that is just stunning and I need, but then I’m kindly reminded by my husband that I need to stop buying stuff (hehe). So when Gloss48 contacted me about doing a review for the upcoming Takko pre-launch event I quickly jumped on the opportunity. And I have to say these are worth the hype!
Jabberwocky is a gorgeous seafoam green/aqua teal crelly with strong copper to green shifting shimmer. Oh my! How I love this! On it’s own it’s a tad sheer, 3-4 coats will give you full coverage (see below, 3 coats by itself), so I applied two coats over Jessica Surfer Boyz ‘n Berry. This color is stunning, the shimmer is definitely not hidden on this one! It does dry to a semi-matte finish so I applied a top coat to make it glossy, which helps the shimmer really pop.
(hey look! it’s righty 😉 )
Physical Graffiti is a taupe-ish grey crelly with sterling silver flakies. The color reminds me of a rainstorm (not that I remember what that looks like because it’s been forever since we’ve had rain!), it’s a warm grey which goes well with my skintone, it doesn’t make me look sickly and I love the addition of the silver flakies. This one was also sheer 3-4 coats alone will give you full coverage (see below), I applied 2 coats over Barielle Taupe Notch to give it a nice rich, deep look.
Overall: I really like these colors and the overall formula, guess it’s time to start saving up for some Takko haulage! 😉
