About Me

I have long been interested in gorgeous nails, and just decided to start sharing photos of what I do! Please be kind! :) Also, if you just like mug and polish photos, check out the tumblr version! morningnailspiration.tumblr.com If you would be interested in having me review your products, send me an email at morningnailspiration (at) gmail (dot) com. When I review products, I usually do 1-2 polishes in a post and wear them for at least 24 hours (for wear tests) before snapping photos. My turn around time on polishes is currently under a week!

Liquid Sky Lacquer Caramel Apple

"Everybody sees me as this sullen and insecure little thing. Those are just the sides of me that I feel it's necessary to show because no one else seems to be showing them."

-Fiona Apple

Polish Information: This beauty is another thermo-holographic from Liquid Sky Lacquer called Caramel Apple. It changes from a tan color when cold to a lime-y green when warm. It really does bring to mind a caramel apple!! Once again, it came in a lovely color coordinated little bag. It's touches like these that are the reason one would buy from an indie company who loves their product!! It certainly shows and makes it that much more special to receive!!

Liquid Sky Lacquer Caramel Apple- I love how it comes in a matching bag!

Application: Like the others, this one glided on smoothly and easily- and it dried fast!! I did three thin coats here with Julep's top and base coats. I wish I had done a thick fourth, as in the outdoors with the warm color, I could definitely see some VNL (visible nail line), which I'm not too fond of. Thus, I would say this formula was a bit thin for my taste (3 coats should usually do it), but this is probably what made it glide on so smoothly from the start!

LSL Caramel Apple- lovely!

For pictures of the color shift, inside, outside, and inside with flash:

And for a couple more pictures of the holo and the subtle ombre of thermo polishes:

My hands were cold but the tips were getting warm at the office today!

And the holo comes out with some flash!

Final thoughts: Overall, I did like this, and the name was really perfect. It changed color easily, with no problems and the holo was definitely present. I wish the formula was a bit thicker, but I did like the fast dry time and smooth application. If I had to pick thickness or fast dry, I'd take the fast drying any time!

If you want your own, check out Liquid Sky Lacquer on facebook or buy it at her shop, here!  This one is a beauty!!

Please note: This polish was purchased by me at a discount for my honest review.


  1. I got the mini, I liked it, but was super sad to not have a natural gradient at the tips on my long nails

    1. First of all, thanks so much for reading and commenting!! Aw, that's too bad! I had a gradient about 25% of the time which makes me think this one must have had a low changing temp (so it stayed solid more of the time). Did you have any luck with any of the other ones? I found those to have a natural gradient 90-95% of time, so they would definitely be worth the effort if you haven't already gotten them (Fuchsia Illusion, Wine & Roses, Teal It Like It Is)! :)


All comments are much appreciated! I'd love to know what you think, but please keep it clean and respectful! Thank you! <3
