Smokey Mountain Lacquers Pacific Dreaming June 2017 Polish Pickup

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Another first on the blog today thanks to the Polish Pickup... Smokey Mountain Lacquers! Just as with the Ellagee I shared the other day, the Polish Pickup has been an amazing and innovative way for me to try new brands and the shipping is only $3 no matter how many polishes you buy (to Canada or the USA). Count me in!

Smokey Mountain Lacquers Pacific Dreaming

This pretty polish is Smokey Mountain Lacquers Pacific Dreaming is described as a light blue with a green leaning base, a gorgeous rose gold shimmer and scattered holo. I am wearing two coats plus top coat as it dries to a satin finish. This looks a bit more green in regular daylight than my pictures show, very close to YSL Green Peace but the shimmer appears more purple whereas the YSL is more pink. Also, this SML has added scattered holo which is very delicate and pretty.

My thoughts on the formula: it's quite thin but covers well in two coats. The first coat was extremely patchy and I worried for a second but after applying another coat, all was well. It dries to a satin finish so top coat is a must as it brings out the shimmer and holo.

This is a well-executed polish and I'm impressed with my first time trying SML. My only quip is that my vertical nail ridges really show through when wearing this polish but that might be due more to the base coat and top coat though my base coat was supposedly ridge filling. Bleh! I still love it!
