California Lovin Indies is a box conceptualized by Stacy, owner and creator, of Mace Polish (who is now known as Static Polish) celebrating all things California. This will be a quarterly collaboration and some pretty iconic photos are used as inspiration.
This is the first collab for 1850 Artisan Polish and they were inspired by the image the Painted Ladies of San Francisco at Sunset. The iconic architecture site of Victorian houses along Steiner street… Think Full house.
Let’s get to the Swatches:
Ladies at Sunset from 1850 is a beautiful lilac lavender silver chrome and scattered holo.
Ladies has a glow from within I can’t explain, it’s pastel but not really. The first coat is very sheer but it does build up nicely with 2 – 3 coats depending on nail length, I used 3.
Next up is All Dressed up from Mace Polish.
All dress up is a blue crelly with copper shimmer, green shimmer, holo flakies and UCC flakies.
The formula is very pigmented for a crelly, it applies smooth and evenly in 2-3 coats, I used 2 coats and saw some VNL under the lights, so a 3rd coat would have made the color deeper, but overall it’s a great color!
This is my first time using a Mace Polish and I am glad to have found them although the name is changing the maker isn’t and I look forward to what Static Lacquer comes up with.
This duo is no longer available for sale on the maker’s site.
