Smokey Mountain Lacquers 2014 Summer Collection Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Today I have 3 of the 6 polishes from the Smokey Mountain Lacquers Summer Collection.  I was really excited about this collection because Kim (owner of SML) mentioned they can be used for nail art!  I'll be sharing the swatches and art I created with the polishes.

Now let's get to some swatches!

First up is Lemon Tart, a shimmery yellow creme.  Lemon Tart is a crisp, fresh yellow which is perfect as a base for nail art, like stamping.  Formula was nice and easy to apply.  Photos show 2 coats for total opacity with shiny top coat and stamping with Winstonia and Mash Plates.

Next is Marshmallow Cream, a perfect white crelly.  This would work perfect for a jelly sandwich (layer of Marshmallow Cream followed by a layer of glitter and then another layer of Marshmallow Cream).  Added stamping with a Born Pretty Plate and Sheer Perfection Tints from Polish Pusher to add a pop of color.  Photos show 2 coats with a shiny top coat.

The last polish I have to share is called Refreshmint.  Refreshmint is a mint green holographic polish.  Mint + holo = HAPPY FACE!  Easy to work with because the formulas of Smokey Mountain Lacquer polishes are amazing.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.  I decided to water marble over the over Refreshmint using Lemon Tart, Marshmallow Cream and the shiny top coat.  Loved how it turned out.

Loves:  I love polishes that are easy to use for nail art!  All are water marble friendly and work perfect as bases for art.  I love the shimmer in Lemon Tart, I love the diversity that Marshmallow Cream can be used for and who doesn't love a holo?  Formula for all 3 were great and of course Smokey Mountain Lacquers are 5-free so they don't contain 5 of the nasty chemicals that an be in polish.

Wishes:  I wouldn't change anything - this collection is full of fun colors!

Additional colors of the collection include Plumtastic - deep purple holo, Berry Smoothie - hot pink holo and Creme de Menthe - teal green crelly.

Shiny Top Coat: Gem Glam Top Coat from www.dreampolish.com
Stamping Plates: Winstonia & Born Pretty Store (use code DGJ61 for 10% off)
