Anchor & Heart Lacquer Polish Pickup Weather Phenomena June 2019 Swatches and Review

Whew! Blogger was having issues loading photos earlier but now I am finally able to start the fun for June's Polish Pickup! This month, the theme is Weather Phenomena and the shop is open June 7 at 11AM EDT to June 9 at 11:59PM EDT. The Polish Pickup is a Facebook group and pop-up shop that offers monthly pre-orders of indie polish made to themes voted on by members of the group. I am starting off with the two products offered by Anchor & Heart Lacquer.

Anchor & Heart Lacquer Polish Pickup Weather Phenomena June 2019


Anchor & Heart Lacquer Hazy Bit of Light is a clear polish with a matte finish, copper shimmer, and orange-to-gold duochrome iridescent flakes. It is intended as a matte topper, but I wore it both on its own in four coats and over Anchor & Heart Lacquer Sea Smoke, the brands other Polish Pickup polish this month. This had a really nice formula and quick dry time. The wear on it was good. I'd say the matte has a satiny quality. It makes a nice product to use over bare nails for a subtle effect. 

Price: $10.50

Capped at 180 bottles in the US shop, 20 in the UK shop

Anchor & Heart Lacquer Sea Smoke is the regular polish for the month. It is a battleship gray creme-jelly with orange to gold duochrome iridescent flakes, blue microflakes, and white, yellow, blue, brown, gray, and black matte microglitters. I wore it in three thin coats and it had a good formula. It has a little texture due to the glitter, but will smooth out with top coat. I wore it as a pedi over a regular base and it did take some effort to remove, but I didn't have to soak it off. It is inspired by sea smoke, the haze that forms over water when it is much warmer than the air.

Price: $12.50
