California Lovin' July 2018 Indie Duo Collaboration: Mace Polish and 1850 Artisan Polish

*press samples*

Hi guys! This week has me all messed up. I swear that today is Sunday and not Thursday. I received 2 days off for the 4th, and was a much needed break. Tonight I have a special new collaboration from Stacy at Mace Polish (soon to be Static Lacquer). The California Lovin' set will be available bi-monthly (every other month, not twice a month) and will feature Mace Polish/Static Lacquer with a different special guest brand from the great state of California. The duos will be $20 + shipping in the Static Lacquer website

This month's guest is 1850 Artisan Polish which is a brand that has been on my radar since they started back in January. After trying them here for the first time, this won't be my last! The inspiration for this month's duo is a photo of the Painted Ladies of San Francisco at sunset. To be honest, I had to Google it ­čśČ I felt so foolish after I did so. 

They are amazing pieces of architecture and full of color. The duo is available now for pre-order through Tuesday, July 10th at 11:59 PM PST. Since it is a pre-order, it will take about 2-3 weeks after the pre-order ends for items to ship. Now that we've gotten through all the info, shall we get to the swatches? 

1850 Artisan Polish Ladies at Sunset (2 coats)

Up first is Ladies at Sunset from 1850 Artisan Polish which is a light lavender base with copper shimmer and purple and silver holo microflakes. What a lovely iridescent color! It's a soft purple without being pastel. Since this was my first time trying 1850 Artisan Polish, I couldn't wait to see how it applied. Good news, it was perfect. It was fully opaque in 2 coats, and dried with no texture at all. Removal was a breeze as well. 

Mace Polish All Dressed Up (3 coats)

Up next is All Dressed Up from Mace Polish. This one is a medium blue crelly base with copper and green shimmer, holo silver microflakes, and UCC flakes. Stacy does some beautiful blue polishes, and this is no exception. There's a perfect balance between the amount of UCC flakes and holo micoflakes. You can either use 3 thinner coats or 2 thicker, and I went for the former. If you have shorter nails, you could likely get away with just 2 thinner ones. Since there's no glitter in here, All Dressed Up dried with no texture and was easy to remove. Hooray! 

We've got 2 beauties here. These are exclusive to the collaboration duo, and you can get them for $20 + shipping. Don't forget, if you purchase the duo with the Mace Polish July Polish Pickup Rewind color Starlight Starbright, you'll receive 15% off with the code ILOVEPPU. That means you can get all three colors for $27.20 without shipping. The California Lovin' duo is only available for pre-order until Tuesday, July 10th at 11:59 PM PST so don't hesitate! You can learn more about Mace Polish on their websiteFacebook, and Instagram pages.
