Hiya guys! I always feel the first few months of the year are so exciting. Holiday after holiday fun aka holiday inspired collections galore. Today I'm sharing swatches for the Anti-Valentine's Day Duo by Smokey Mountain Lacquers and Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer. Yes, it's that time of the year again when love is in the air! Or not if you're so over that scene like I am, haha. In either case though a girl needs her polish and these are stunners! So let's get right into the swatches.
The Anti-Valentine's Day Duo will be available for pre-order on January 11th at 8AM CST through smokeymountainlacquers.com. Pre-order will run through January 18th at 9 pm CST. These will only be sold as a duo, not individually, for $17 (plus shipping).
Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer - Be My Anti-Valentine
Be My Anti-Valentine can be described as a neon pink creme with subtle shimmer. My camera could not handle the level of neon this beautiful shade was bringing to the table. It is notably much more hot neon pink in person and in direct sunlight.
The formula was very opaque and was almost a one coater, perhaps if I didn't have a light hand during application. However the consistency is a bit thick, but manageable enough to layer. The coats initially seem patchy and streaky, but after topcoat they seemed to level out perfectly. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Smokey Mountain Lacquer - Treat Yourself
Treat Yourself can be described as a turquoise and silver holo micro glitter bomb. Perfect name for the perfect sparkly polish. Seriously! What could be a better way to deck yourself out than with some sparkle and shine. And remember guys, my photos are taken indoors so the holo glitters sparkle so much more in direct sunlight.
The formula has a thick consistency as expected for a glitter bomb, but it did feel a bit unmanageable. I ended up adding a bit of thinner and that helped tremendously. I was able to layer the coats without the need to dab for full coverage. It does dry on the textured side, so I ended up doubling up on the topcoat for a smooth finish. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Overall despite the minor formula issues, I really love these shades. They are such a breath of fresh air as we transition away from the more traditional winter and holiday collections. I really cannot wait to use them in some nail art together next week! What do you guys think? Did these pretty shades make you fall in love?
To recap, the Anti-Valentine's Day Duo will be available for pre-order on January 11th at 8AM CST through smokeymountainlacquers.com. Pre-order will run through January 18th at 9 pm CST. These will only be sold as a duo, not individually, for $17 (plus shipping).
