Pomegranate Lacquer Midnight Satellite and Autumnesque

Hiya!

Sorry this post is much later than I typically put up, but because of Yom Kippur and a particularly bad fasting experience, my days have completely gone off kilter.  That being said, I will happily try to win you fabulous readers back by showing you two gorgeous new shades from the Fall 2012 Collection just released from Pomegranate Nail Lacquers.

If you haven't heard of Pomegranate, that's because they are what I would call semi-indie. While not yet a mainstream drugstore/beauty supply store brand, Pomegranate polishes are quickly hitting the blogosphere.  And I must say that Tina, the Pomegranate creator, has done a great job professionalizing her website, bottles, and general PR.

Moving on to the colors.  First up, we have Midnight Satellite.  A true green teal, the color of this shimmery creme borders on the darker side and looks almost hunter in most lights.  What I love about this is that while a creme, Midnight Satellite has a jellyish quality in that each layer of polish brings a new depth of color (this mani is three coats).  Infused with tiny silver glass fleck shimmer, this baby shines.  I wore this for three days with minimal tip wear. 


Next up is the aptly named Autumnesque.  A buttery rust-colored creme, Autumnesque is swimming in rose gold shimmer, much finer and smooth than that in Midnight Satellite.  The formula on this was a bit thin and required three coats for me to finally be satisfied.  While I typically shy away from brown-based pinks and reds, the gold undertones in this are truly flattering and look very sophisticated on.  My boss already requested this for her next pedicure!



My only complaint with these polishes is the thinness in the formula coupled with the thinness of the brush.  I think a wider brush might apply the polish a bit better but that's really my only complaint.  The colors and staying power of these were really remarkable.  I think the fact that I kept Midnight Satellite on for three days says something since I typically do my nails daily because I just hate chips.  That just doesn't seem to be a problem with these polishes!

Pomegranate polishes retail for $8 USD.  If you are interested in purchasing Pomegranate Nail Lacquer, please visit their website here.  Please note that they are also having a clearance sale here with polishes going for $4.50 USD.

  9. Can't wait to see your swatches of Curator...that was one of the ones I was debating on getting but was concerned it was going to be gritty.

  10. Haha! So true. Is it weird that 3-day manis are considered long to us?

  14. I'm cool with three coats for a good color that applies well. Better than one thick coat that applies horribly and looks terrible on.
