Supermoon Lacquer - Polish Pick Up - May 2018

Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! I don't know about you, but I am enjoying some gorgeous sunshine here in Jersey. It has been way overdue and honestly feels like heaven. And that's coming from someone who usually hates the summer time. It's also making the sick feeling go away a little quicker, so I am all for it haha. Anyway here we are continuing to live in sweet 90s Pop Culture as we countdown to Polish Pickup. For today I'm sharing swatches for In West Philadelphia by Supermoon Lacquer, which is the May contribution to the Polish Pickup Collaboration. It's one of my favorites this month and that comes as no surprise since Mardi is one of my favorite creators. The girl has a true talent for polish making, especially when it comes to certain hues. But I'll let the polish do the talking, let's get to the swatches.

Supermoon Lacquer - Polish Pick Up - May 2018

In West Philadelphia by Supermoon Lacquer will be available for purchase through the Polish Pickup Shop Friday, May 4th at 11AM EST through May 7th. The full-size 12mL shade will retail for $12.50 each and there is no cap this month.

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 May is
90s Pop Culture. This month Mardi got her inspiration from the ultimate 90's sitcom - Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The color itself is inspired by Will Smith's colorful outfits he wears throughout the course of the show - specifically the yellow tank top worn over the bright purple t-shirt with matching baseball cap combo he sports in one of the early episodes.

In West Philadelphia can be described as as a bright electric purple based holographic filled with purple/copper/green aurora color shifting pigment; gold-to-green and purple-to-green color shifting shimmer; violet, lavender, and gold microflakies; holographic silver microflakies; and holographic gold and iridescent microglitters. I have always been a sucker for a purple shade especially one with such rich pigmentation. It's a stunner and it's not all that surprising since it's coming from Mardi, the girl does complex rich finishes like no one else. Like always, my photos don't do the sparkle any justice. The hue is gorgeous and works so well against any skin-tone for any occasion.

This month Mardi and Karen from Lollipop Posse Lacquer created sister polishes centered around the same inspiration - Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I'll have the shade from Karen to share with you guys tomorrow!

The formula has a fantastic opacity and feels almost like a one coater. I opted for that second thin coat just to add a bit more sparkle and shimmer to the end result. It has a perfectly balanced consistency, not too thick or too thin. It dries down to a high-shine, but minimal gritty finish that smooths out after topcoat. And despite it's rich pigmentation, I experienced no staining on removal to either my nail beds or cuticles. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
