July 2018 Polish Pickup Rewind: Mace Polish's Starlight Starbright

*press sample*

Hi guys! I'm finally back from my work trip. Tomorrow happens to be the 4th of July, so I get to rest up a little bit. Well, that and watch some fireworks! I've had the chance to review a few Polish Pickup colors in the past, and instead of a regular month, PPU is taking July off. Each brand is permitted to re-release a polish of their choice in their respective storefronts. Mace Polish (soon to be Static Lacquer), has chosen Starlight Starbright from the January Crystals & Gemstones to bring back, and it's available now for $12 through July 31st with a cap of 150 bottles. All orders with Starlight Starbright will receive 15% off their entire purchase with code ILOVEPPU. It seems like most brands are running sales for a percentage off or free shipping to offset the shipping you have to pay. Keep reading for more pics and the full review. 

Mace Polish Starlight Starbright (3 coats)

You can see the inspiration for Starlight Starbright in the collage above. The rocks/gemstones are a beautiful blurple color with an opal glow and iron deposits that resemble flakies. Starlight Starbright is a blue-toned purple crelly with UCC flakies and chameleon glitters. The formula was on the thick side, but not enough to warrant any polish thinner (never use acetone to thin polish). I went ahead and used 3 thin coats for my swatches, but you'd likely be able to get away with 2 coats, depending on your application style. It dried with a little bit of texture, so make sure to use a topcoat. 

Starlight Starbright is such a rich color that perfectly fits the inspiration. I am not surprised that the Mace Polish Fan group voted to have this one return. It's for sale until July 31st, or until 150 bottles are sold. Make sure you get yours while you still can! Again, all orders with Starlight Starbright will receive 15% off their entire purchase with code ILOVEPPU. You can learn more about Mace Polish on their website, Facebook, and Instagram pages.
