Smokey Mountain Lacquers: 6 New Polishes!

*Press Samples
Hi everyone, welcome to Monday.  Hopefully you all had a great weekend!  Yesterday was pretty uneventful for me.  My husband and I went grocery shopping, we finished up our Spring cleaning, and I did some work from home.  It's back to being cold again here and we're supposed to get snow tonight.  The weather needs to knock it off, I remember one year it was so warm we planted our entire garden in April.  Somehow I don't think that's going to work this year ;) 

Today I am excited to show off six brand new polishes from Smokey Mountain Lacquers.  These polishes will be available today at 1pm EST.  Let's get right into it!  I also want to note that all swatches are without topcoat.

Before The Storm

Before the Storm is a light grey cream with a touch of brown.  I love grey polishes and this one is no exception!  I found this polish to be pretty sheer, but it did build up nicely in three thin coats.  I thought it was also important to note that each coat dried really quickly so three coats wasn't a problem.  This one is so sophisticated and chic on the nail and I love the color.

Sandy Shores

Sandy Shores is a tan cream polish like the color of sand when it gets wet.  I love that description :)  I'm definitely a beach bunny at heart!  This polish was the most sheer of the six, and even with three thin coats, there was still some visible nail line.

Below is a comparison between the first two polishes.  Sandy Shores is on the left (tan) and Before The Storm is on the right (grey).

Delicate Flower

Delicate Flower is a delicate violet blue cream.  This polish is exactly like a violet blue and it is so pretty on the nail.  This is like the season Spring in a polish!  This one was again on the sheer side but I used three thin coats to build up the color.  This one did end up being a little bit streaky on the nail. 

I'm Just Peachy

Next up is I'm Just Peachy, which is an orange cream with pink shimmer.  This one reminded me of a peach pie, it's all I could think of when I was swatching it.  I used two coats for my swatches below.  The first coat was a little bit sheer, but it built up nicely in two coats.

She Devil

She Devil is a pink/red cream.  This one was like applying a liquid strawberry on my nails, I loved it!  I used two coats below.

In Your Dreams

I saved my favorite for last.  In Your Dreams is a bold blue cream and I had a hard time trying to figure out what type of blue this was because I haven't seen anything like it.  It's kind of in between a sea blue and a cobalt blue.  Ugh, it's just so pretty!  This was the most opaque of the six and I used two coats below.

Overall, I am very happy with these polishes.  I love the originality of the colors, especially for Spring.  Some of the formulas were on the sheer side, but all but one were able to be built up easily.  My favorites are In Your Dreams, Before the Storm, and She Devil.  

These polishes will be available today starting at 1pm EST.  Full size bottles will retail for $7.45 and minis will retail for $3.95.  Smokey Mountain Lacquers can be found on their website here and on Etsy here.
