Gloss, gloss and more gloss! Love lacquer! Glitzy and glamorous, sleek and sexy....give me some lacquer. Just like glass, a glint of that sheen on a surface adds a glimmer to any space....shimmer and shine!

  2. Beth, i loooove these glossy surfaces! they feel so grown up. I saw a great retail store recently in Buenos Aires using high gloss paint - Balthazar Men's Clothing in San Telmo. They had painted wide vertical stripes in maroon and a very soft lime green - sounds odd - but it looked great - very masculine.

    I always thought you needed perfectly smooth walls for super glossy paint but I read recently they don't have to be. What are your thoughts on that?

  3. Hi!

    I have used lacquer on not perfectly perfect walls, and it is usually ok....but I still prefer plenty of prep and polish. On wood trim it is imperative to really get the trim satiny smooth! The store in Buenos Aires sounds fabulous!
