Smokey Mountain Lacquers - Polish Pick Up September 2017

1 comment

Hiya guys! It's going to be quite the busy week around here with double posts every single day. Wallets everywhere are quaking, haha. Mine included. Especially so because we are less than one week away from the September run of the Polish Pickup. And that's exactly what we'll be starting off with today as I share swatches for Smokey Mountain Lacquers contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration.

If you're not familiar with the concept, the Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. This month the theme that was voted on was Fall Foliage and Fun! Every month I think, 'oh this is the one that's going to crush the rest' and then next month comes and it continues the hype train on high. I'm not complaining though! Now let's go ahead and get started with the swatches.

Here's the stock image that Kim chose to focus on as her inspiration for her shade this month.

Take It or Leaf can be described as a medium beige crelly with red/gold/orange UCC flakies, subtle gold shimmer and subtle fired red holo micro glitter. If there was thing I was hoping for above all else this month it was flakies. Just a whole lot of flakies. And this polish definitely did not disappoint when it came to that! Without a doubt it captures the essence of Fall whilst still having that nice subtle elegance to make it an easy wear year round.

The formula has a sheer application, but builds-up well for full coverage. The flakies have a even distribution across the nail without clumping together. Consistency wise it leans on the thin side, but it's manageable and doesn't run. No need to fish for any flakies or glitters, there is plenty per brush stroke. It dries down to a minimal gritty finish, but smooths out perfectly after topcoat. Shown in two to three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
