Nails For Breast Cancer Awareness: Elixir Lacquers With a K

Hello lovelies!

As most of you are aware October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. To help show my support I decided to do some pink manis for you this month! I don't have a ton of pink nail polishes because I am picky but I will do my best to use them all!

The first one I have for you is Elixir Lacquers With a K. This is one of the first indie polishes I purchased and is one that I have almost gotten rid of several times but haven't been able to do it. It is just so gorgeous! With a K is described as:

Silver and electric violet holographic micro glitter with red-violet prismatic hexagon glitter, suspended in a red-violet jelly base

Ok so I realize nothing in that description says pink. I'm not sure if there was a change in formula but the one I have is definitely pink! Check it out!

Shown is 2 coats of With a K over Julep Nail Therapy. All but the last two photos are shown with HK Girl top coat. I love the textured finish that it has before top coat but I also love how the holo sparkle shines once you add it. I didn't realize that it was going to be so sheer otherwise I would have used an extra coat or maybe layered it. My nails are still stained from a few weeks ago and that kind of messed with the color. I'm thinking it's about time I use some baking soda and lemon juice and scrub them. Overall this is a gorgeous color but one that will go in my purge pile as I just don't like it with my skin.

What is your favorite pink? Do you have any tips to get rid of staining?

  1. I think I prefer it with top coat, but either way it's very pretty! I love the color pink but I'm not super in love with it when it comes to polish for some reason, but I would totally wear this. The first polish I bought when I started my collection happened to be China Glaze Naked, which is another great pink if you're ever looking for one. I like it so much that I've worn it a few times.

    1. I'll have to check it out! I agree, I think it is prettier with topcoat added! The holo glitter is beautiful!
