Smokey Mountain Lacquers "Oh My Eyes!" Collection

***Press Sample***

I'm back with more neon goodness!!  Cutting right to the chase with this post - one of my eyes is half-swollen from allergies O_o

Smokey Mountain Lacquers just released the gorgeous "Oh My Eyes!" collection comprised of 7 neon holographic polishes.  I've got swatches of each to show you today!  All the polishes are shown in two coats, topped with HK Girl Glisten & Glow topcoat, and they all dried to a shiny finish in under 5 minutes.

First up: Sinful Lime

Sinful Lime is a bright lime green linear holographic polish.

Next up: Butter Me Up

Butter Me Up is a bright yellow polish with a subtle linear holographic effect.

Next: Too Hot To Handle

Too Hot To Handle is a bright orange polish with a subtle linear holographic effect.

Here is Orchid You Not

Orchid You Not is a bright hot pink linear holographic polish.

Grape Expectations is a bright purple linear holographic polish.

Next: Twilight Twist

Twilight Twist is a bright blue linear holographic polish.

Last but not least: My Cup of Teal

My Cup of Teal is a bright peacock/teal green linear holographic polish.

The Ups: These polishes are absolutely gorgeous!  No matter what pictures say, these polishes are sooooo bright in real-life!  They are definite stunners and real eye-catchers.  I love that they are opaque with two coats, and that they are holographic without being overwhelmingly so.  The fast dry time is also always a huge plus for me :)

The Downs:  Because hot weather is approaching, be sure to do your nails in a cool area devoid of excessive humidity and blowing fans.  In Phoenix, is has been in the high 80's the past few weeks, and when I tried doing these polishes during the day on one of those days, the polish became very thick, and created huge bubbles.  NOT the fault of the polish, but the fault of my environment - just something to keep in mind when applying :)

Overall:  I found no fault in these polishes!  This is a beautiful collection that satisfies the neon freak and the holo addict in me :D  Perfect!!

You can purchase each of these polishes individually for $10 per bottle for full size, $6 for 8ml mini size.  You can also purchase the collection in full for a discounted price of $65.80 for full size and $39.90 for 8ml mini size.  Here are some store and social media links for you:

So what do you think of this collection?  Which color is your favorite?


Polishes sent to me by the maker for photography and review.  Opinions are 100% honest.


  1. I love all of these. Did you have problems with brush strokes showing at all?

    1. There were a few, like Sinful Lime and Butter Me Up, that required a more mindful application due to brush strokes, but for the most part I didn't have issues - though I instinctively apply in the same direction every time :P

  2. I love the way you do your swatches with an accent nail art added!
    I can hear you about allergies, mine haven't started yet, but I am closer to my "black area" which is end of April/start of May.

  3. Oh, these are lovely! I love that the holo is subtle.

  4. These are really nice! My Cup of Teal is a fantastic color.

  7. IDK why, but these make me think of the 90's. Possibly the finish? IDK. I love them, though!
