Supermoon Lacquer - Polish Pick Up - December 2017

1 comment

Hiya guys! I’m still in the hospital and unfortunately had to undergo a second transfusion this afternoon. It’s not as bad as it sounds though... or maybe I’m just used to a lot of needles haha. Either way, I’m on the path to feeling better and that’s what counts in the long run. A girl needs her health in order to buy all the polish! Speaking of which, we are one day closer to the best time of the month. Today I'm sharing swatches for Supermoon Lacquer December contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration. The theme this month is Holiday's Around the World and Mardi has once again chosen a killer inspiration. Seriously this woman knows how to go after my heart each and every month, haha. But I'll let the photos talk for themselves, let's go ahead and get right to it!

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. As I mentioned before, the theme that was voted for December is Holiday's Around the World

For this month, Mardi found inspiration in this photo of Rihanna and her costume from 2017's Crop Over - a traditional harvest festival in Barbados. It takes place every year, starting in early June and ending on the first Monday of August. It began in the late 1600's and has evolved over time to be similar to other Carnival holidays held in the Caribbean as well as Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

Party Monarch can be described as an aqua-green/turquoise scattered holographic base filled with green/violet/red, green/teal, and turquoise/purple color shifting shimmer, blue, red, and white sparks, pink and rose pearl flakies, iridescent lime-gold micro-glitter, and holographic clear and gold micro-glitter.

This shade is as gorgeous as the inspiration, which is a tall feat considering it's Rihanna. *drool* In all seriousness, the hue is stunning and one of my favorites this month. The flecks of color in the shimmer are subtle and mesh well against the color of the base. It adds the right amount of pop without overwhelming the finish. And despite being on the warmer side, it ends up looking really good against my skin complexion.

The formula has a good opacity and a smooth application throughout. It self-levels nicely and is very easy to work with. Consistency wise it's well balanced and not too thick or too thin. The finish dries down to a minimal gritty feel that can be smoothed out after topcoat. I experienced no staining on removal to either my cuticles or nail bed. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
