Inspiration: Jean-Michel Basquiat (December 22, 1960 – August 12, 1988) was an American Artist of Haitan and Puerto Rican descent. Basquiat’s art focused on suggestive dichotomies. His painting ‘Fishing’ was one of the most famous graffiti paintings by Basquiat. It was created in 1981.
This is honestly one of the most challenging polishes I have ever swatched. Tri-thermals can be tricky, but quad-thermals are crazy. Yes, you read that right. A quad-thermal! I knew almost immediately that my nails aren’t long enough to get all 4 shades on a nail, I’m guessing you would need very long nails to capture all 4 at once. I decided to split it up into warm to hot transitions, and then cool to cold transitions.
Jior Couture Lapech 1981
For my first swatch I’m showing the warm to hot shift, which is a soft periwinkle when warm to a cornflower when hot.
For my second swatch I’m showing the cool to cold shift, which is chartreuse when cool to sage when cold.
Below is how it wore most of the time for me, and you can totally see all those aurora pigments.
Lapech 1981 is described as a quad thermal that transitions between 4 unique colors; Cold – Chartreuse, Cool – Sage, Warm – Periwinkle, Hot – Cornflower. It is packed with 3 different aurora pigments that give it a unique look with each shift. All of my swatches show 3 coats with glossy top coat.
