Valentine's Day is over - thus begins the time leading up to my favorite holiday of the year: St. Patrick's Day!!! I'm super excited, and even more so than usual because my best friend of 10+ years is coming to visit and will be here to celebrate with me!! Squee!!!
Speaking of St. Pat's, I have a freakin' AMAZING duo to show you by Smokey Mountain Lacquers!! Let me pre-empt the swatch porn by saying that SML recently reformulated and changed an ingredient in her polish, and now it is even more smooth than before, and not as thick. It's a noticeable improvement from the old formula, even though I was one of the people that didn't run into any problems with it in the past.
Huzzah for new formula!! Let's check it out in action!
First up: 2 Sheets To The Wind - first two photos are with regular topcoat, the second two are with a matte topcoat.
2 Sheets to the Wind is a fantastically bright green crelly with a green/lime shimmer, shown in the photos above in 2 easy breasy coats. I *love* this one, but I especially love it mattified!!!! The best part about 2 Sheets is that I can wear it year-round, and it's definitely suitable for summer flip flop months :D
And the second polish is: Fool's Gold (again, first 3 are regular topcoat, last 2 are matte)
Fool's Gold is a STUNNING multichrome shifting from a brown to gold to green with hints of blue. Again, ridiculously smooth application, opaque in 2 coats. I love me a good shifty chrome, and this one does so in every kind of lighting. And I kinda dig the matte look - gives it a nice earthy tone :)
But wait, there's more!!
If you are not a member of the Smokey Mountain Lacquers Fan Group yet, you really should join. Why? Well besides the fact we are a fun bunch with a weekly contest for a gift code prize, you could win a dragon egg made by yours truly using the St. Patrick's Day Duo!!
One of the reasons I've been a bit radio silent lately is that I've started my own business selling Dragon Eggs, and it's been very successful so far!! So I thought I'd donate one to get some more interaction and good people into a group that supports such a great polish brand!!
The long and short of how you can win this can all be found in the fan group! :D
Getting back to the Duo, it goes live TODAY at 7pm CST!!! The first 10 orders will receive a bonus gold and rhinestone nail charm <3 Here's all the links to the most important places:
What do you all think of the duo? Let me know in the comments!!
