Howdy! I do apologize for being so radio-silent. I had a lot of personal family stuffs come up over the last two weeks that has been taking up some time. Now that that is all through and done, I can finally get back to polish shenanigans!!
Speaking of which - let's get down to today's polish topic of awesome!! Today we'll be looking at the "Ready to Launch" collection by Supermoon Lacquer - the polish brand of the Howling Boutique!
I am so stinkin' excited to share this collection with you, you have NO IDEA. So, a little back story for you...
The Howling Boutique started by selling handmade jewelry, most (if not all) of which is made with polish she created specifically for her craft. The owner decided to venture into making polish for the general public, and I gotta tell you, this inaugural collection? GORGEOUS.
Space was the inspiration for these polishes, and her interpretations are just spot on. Let's get to it!
*All photos are shown wearing 2 coats with topcoat; all art is freehand with matte topcoat.
First up: Stellar Stream
Stellar Stream is a coral-leaning (in some lighting) bubblegum pink with a brilliant blue shimmer. Applies smoothly and evenly and is opaque in 2 coats.
Next up: Rosette Nebula
Rosette Nebula is a berry pink/burgundy holo. This beauty could be opaque in 1 coat, though I have a very strong Visible Nail Line, so I did an extra coat.
Next: Cosmic Dust
Cosmic Dust is a stunning multi-chrome that shifts from a red/violet to magenta and then to a dark red/orange. Opaque in 2 coats, and applies like a dream! Apologies for the bubbles - those are from the topcoat I was using, NOT the polish.
Here we have: Galactic Halo
Galactic Halo is a beautiful dark purple with a scattered holo and strong violet/blue shimmer - it really makes this one quite a stunner in the sun, especially! Opaque in 2 coats.
Next up: Mystic Mountain
Mystic Mountain is a dusty multichrome that shifts from green to blue/purple to red. The red is much more subtle, but still present. This one was not only my favorite of the collection, it is the most unique of the collection! Opaque in 2 coats.
Next is: Pistol Star
Pistol Star is a holographic duochrome that shifts from a bright blue to a subtle purple. This one is another stunner in direct sunlight! Opaque in 1-2 coats, depending on how you apply it.
Here we have: Star Cloud
Star Cloud is a lovely aqua/medium blue with a gold/green shimmer. Definitely can be opaque in one coat, and I'm willing to bet money it also stamps... I'll have to try that - for science!
Next is: Tidal Disruption
Tidal Disruption is a beautiful deep teal green with a gold/green shimmer. Another that could very well be opaque in 1 coat!
And lastly we have: Polar Light
Polar Light is a gorgeous light green scattered holo with a brilliant gold/green shimmer and a subtle sprinkling of blue/green iridescent microglitters. This one is sooooooo stunning in sunlight - the gold really shines through. Opaque in 1-2 coats, depending on how you apply.
Overall, I am just blown away by this collection! The creator did a great job, and before she even created the official collection, she had several people test the polishes out for her to make sure there were no formula issues/wear issues/etc. She really did her homework! And it absolutely shows.
You can snag one or all of these beauties tonight at 6pm CST at the Howling Boutique shop, linked below along with her social media so you can stalk/follow the brand ;)

What do you think of this collection? Any one in particular strike your fancy the most? Let me know in the comments!!
And just for fun, here's a collage of all the space art I did ^_^
Polish was sent to me by the maker for photography purposes and an honest review. My opinions and experience with each polish are unique to me, and my review remains 100% honest with full disclosure.
All space images were found via Google Image search - I do NOT own any of those images.
