Lucky 13 Lacquer: Softening the Bad Things

*Purchased by Me*

Greetings, and happy Friday!  I'm excited to share one of my absolute favorite polishes in my entire collection.  It's one of the few that I find myself reaching for time and time again - Softening the Bad Things from Lucky 13 Lacquer.

Softening the Bad Things was originally released to help raise awareness about depression.  I've dealt with depression for a number of years, and I know the personal impact that the disorder has, as well as the impact that it has on friends and family.  Softening the Bad Things was inspired a quote from one of my favorite Doctor Who episodes, Vincent and the Doctor. 

This quote, well it means so much to me.  I've had some really terrible things happen in my life, things that I still can't really talk about it very well.  But at the same time, I've had some absolutely amazing things.  All those experiences, good and bad, have made me the person that I am today,  

Now that I've gotten all mushy, on to the polish!

Softening the Bad Things is a light blue crelly with tiny bronze and larger gold glitters. The colors are reminiscent of Van Gogh's Sunflowers painting.

The formula of the polish was just a little on the thick side, but still easy to work with.  I used 2 coats for these photos, plus a top coat.

The original runs of Softening the Bad Things were limited in quantity, however for the best news is that it is back for a short time!  It's available right now for $8.50 at Lucky 13 Lacquer.  

Do you have a polish or color that you find yourself wearing when you're having a bad day?

Until next time,
