Hiya guys! It's time for a nice long weekend because of Memorial Day. Along with that comes a lot of sales and new releases. Today I'm sharing the launch of a new indie in our community, Super Moon Lacquer, which is stemming from the shop The Howling Boutique. The debut collection is appropriately titled Ready to Launch and consists of nine polishes inspired by outer space.
The Ready to Launch collection from Super Moon Lacquer is available for pre-sale now. Each full-size bottle (12mL) retails for $8.00-$10.00. The full collection (9 bottles) is also available to purchase as a set for $75.00. Don't miss out on grabbing these for less because today through May 31st the prices are listed at a discounted rate. On the official launch, June 6th at 6PM CST, prices will be listed as normal.
Super Moon Lacquer - Cosmic Dust
Cosmic Dust can be described as a subtle multichrome with a shimmer that shifts from red-violet to magenta to dark red-orange. There is a lot of depth to this polish than first meets the eye and I think the macro really captures that aspect of it well. Formula was surprisingly opaque to the point of almost being a one coater. Honestly if I hadn't used such a light hand it probably would have been just one coat. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Super Moon Lacquer - Galactic Holo
Galactic Holo can be described as a orchid-purple scattered holographic with blue undertones and a violet-to-blue color shifting shimmer. You guys know me and my love for anything in the purple range. Instant nail boner, haha. The formula has a bit of a thin consistency, but it's doesn't run on the sides. The first coat is on the sheer side so it will need at least one more layer for an opaque finish. I ended up experiencing some minimal staining to my nail bed (sans basecoat) on removal after 24 hours of wear time. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
** This one is sold out at the moment, but will be making a return when the shop reopens on June 6th **
Super Moon Lacquer - Mystic Mountain
Super Moon Lacquer - Pistol Star
Pistol Star can be described as a holographic duochrome with a strong color shift from bright blue to vibrant purple. One of my favorites, it's such a rich color full of depth and sparkle. Mind you these photos are taken in a lightbox and the holo is showing up so strongly. Formula has a smooth application like many of the others here and I experienced no issues with it at all. I also didn't have any problems with staining, which honestly surprised me considering I didn't wear a topcoat. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Super Moon Lacquer - Polar Light
Super Moon Lacquer - Rosette Nebula
Rosette Nebula can be described as a holographic duochrome with a subtle color shift from bright pink to red-orange. One of the more 'toned-down' shades in this collection, I feel like this one hits that mark between bright and vampy for me. There's a very classic feel to the shade. The formula does apply really sheer and will need a few layers to have an opaque finish. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Super Moon Lacquer - Star Cloud
Super Moon Lacquer - Stellar Stream
Stellar Stream can be described as a bright bubblegum pink with a strong turquoise-to-purple color-shifting shimmer. Usually I'm not one for pinks in this color range, but there is something about this one that I'm having a hard time resisting. The color can appear a little more coral in the bottle, but it definitely pink as intended. The formula has a good smooth application with an even consistency between thick and thin. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Super Moon Lacquer - Tidal Disruption
Overall this is one heck of a strong debut collection, probably one of the best I have seen so far this year. For a new indie, the formulas are beyond impressive and it can rival some of my veteran favorites. Usually in a collection this size I end up finding just one or two that are like must-haves while the others are sub-par. Not the case here by far. During my swatching notes I felt like I was gushing over every single of the shades, but really I think the photos speak for themselves. Please note that the labels for my bottles are a little wonky due to a printing issue that occurred, these are not what the final labels will look like.
To recap, the Ready to Launch collection from Super Moon Lacquer is available for pre-sale now. Each full-size bottle (12mL) retails for $8.00-$10.00. The full collection (9 bottles) is also available to purchase as a set for $75.00.
