Takko Electric Apple NYC

Takko Lacquer has the kind of culty following that means you better be on their mailing list or else ready to pounce swiftly when Llarowe restocks.  Suzy says e-battles like this satisfies our primordial hunter-gatherer urges, and I think she may be right.  Regardless of how you feel about restock frenzy, it's undeniable that Takko's creator has an eye for color that's the cause of all the craziness.

Electric Apple NYC is her ode to the city, and it's utterly sophisticated enough to cut it in the big apple.  The base is an aaaaaalmost too-thick flat, concrete grey crème (i'll be thinning it just a very small amount before using it again).  The concrete can pick up a slightly bluish to olive tint, but it's overall an edgy version of neutral.  The starkness of concrete-colored nails is brightened right on up by gold shimmer.

It dries a little satiny, so I think a super glossy topcoat is a must.

Rating:  3 out of 5 stars.  The shimmer is a bit more subtle indoors, but this is an interesting update to standard neutrals.

Where to buy:  like I said, stalk the restocks.  Llarowe carries Takkos on a regular basis, and of course, there's always the option to buy direct from Takko.
