Static Lacquer Summer 2018 Neon Collection Swatches & Reviews

*press samples*

Hi guys, TGIF! I'm back yet again this week to show you another new collection releasing this weekend. Mace Polish has changed names to Static Lacquer, and they are starting things off with a bang. It's a 6-piece set of neons that are black light reactive and also watermarble. Also releasing at the same time is their Crystalline (fast-drying 5-free topcoat, $7) and Overcast (10-free matte topcoat, $7) which I used for the swatches below. The names for each polish is inspired by the song The Afterglow from the band Silverstein. If you are interested, you can check out the song here:

The collection will release this Sunday, July 29th in the Static Lacquer site for $10 each or $46 for the whole collection. Neons are notoriously hard to capture, but I did my very best to show these as color accurate as possible. Without further ado, let's do this! 

Formula and Application:
 I usually mention this on each individual polish, but since these applied the same, I figured I'd just mention it here. I used 3 thin coats for every polish with Tropic Like It's Hot being the sheerest (the orange one). I didn't need to use undies for any of these, and if you see any visible nail line, it's from the bright lights. Stacy calls them creams, but they look at a bit squishy like a jelly polish to my eye. I found it best not to overwork these, otherwise you'll make it look streak. Just have a healthy amount on the brush and let it glide across the nail and they'll look perfect. They dry with a bit of a satin finish due to the neon pigment, so make sure to add a topcoat for that shiny finish. Love it! 

Static Lacquer Freeways Like Paradise (3 coats)

 Up first we've got Freeways Like Paradise which is a neon fuchsia purple cream. This one is most difficult to photograph, and it's definitely more purple in real life. 

Static Lacquer Caught in the Undertow (3 coats)

Caught in the Undertow is a neon blue cream with a hint of purple in there. 

Static Lacquer Stars & Satellites (3 coats)

Stars & Satellites is a green-based highlighter yellow cream. Eye searing and I love everything about it. 

Static Lacquer I Can See the Sunset (3 coats)

I Can See the Sunset is a neon coral cream. A perfect color for any skintone! 

Static Lacquer The Afterglow (3 coats)

Static Lacquer The Afterglow (3 coats, matte)

You guys know I love orange! SQUEE!! The bottom photo shows it with the Overcast matte topcoat which gives it a whole new look. 

Static Lacquer Time Won't Change It (3 coats)

And last but not least we have Time Won't Change It which is a blue-toned green cream. 

I am terrible at nail art, so I didn't get to watermarble with them, but Manna's Manis did an awesome job with hers. What an exciting set of colors! My top recommendations are Stars & Satellites, The Afterglow, and I Can See the Sunset. You can't go wrong with any of them, and if you buy the whole set for $46, you'll save a whopping $14! Set your alarms for this Sunday to get your set. You can learn more about Static Lacquer on their website, FacebookGroup, and Instagram pages.
