The Howling Boutique's Supermoon Lacquer- #SorryNotSorry

Disclaimer: this collection was sent to me in exchange for swatches and a review.

Hear ye, hear ye! Today's swatches are of The Howling Boutique's Supermoon Lacquer's newest collection inspired by the Demi Lovato song and music video, "Sorry Not Sorry". I have to admit that I'm not a huge Demi Lovato fan, mostly because my music tastes are stuck in 2009: I'm still here listening to Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, and All Time Low, but the music video is a glorious blast of technicolor fun and I think this 5-piece collection does a great job of capturing its essence.

And Baby, I'm the Baddest

Let's start with a deep, sexy navy blue multichrome! And Baby, I'm the Baddest ($11) is "A blue tinted blackened base packed with various blue/purple/red/gold color shifting shimmers and iridescent blue pearl microflakies." It's a shifty, shimmery, badass of a polish. This was practically opaque in one coat and the second one was pretty much just to make sure it was all smooth. Shown is two coats and top.

Bright as Technicolor

Bright as Technicolor ($11) is "an electric violet holographic base with magenta and periwinkle, purple-to-red and magenta-to-gold color-shifting shimmer, violet sparks, and iridescent violet and rose pearl microflakies". I think violet is a really good descriptor for it, especially in person, although it tends to photograph more on the blue side. My first thought upon opening the swatcher package was "Oooh! Purple!", so it's pretty solidly purple, although it does lean bluer. This is on the sheerer side for Supermoons, which is to say I needed more than one coat for full opacity. Shown is 3 and top coat.

Out Here Lookin' Like Revenge

Pink lovers, rejoice! Out Here Lookin' Like Revenge ($11) is a sexy, juicy raspberry pink holographic. As with most Supermoon Lacquers, it's filled to the brim with all sorts of goodies. The official description is: "a bright raspberry red scattered holographic base filled with violet/red/orange color-shifting shimmer, red-to-gold color shifting aurora pigment, purple sparks, iridescent violet microflakies, hot pink microflakies, and holographic and metallic magenta microglitters." It's super opaque and I think most people could get away with one coat, but I did two and top coat.

Quick note about the top coat: I did notice in person that the top coat I used (Cuticula) slightly changed the color of the polish, making the pink tones come out more richly and vividly as well as dulling the holo effect just a touch. It's really hard to see in pictures, but I tried to take a comparison picture. The index and middle finger are top coated, and the rest are not.

Second Chance You'll Never Get

Second Chance You'll Never Get ($11) is "an aqua blue-ish turquoise base with pink-to-orange and red-to-yellow color-shifting shimmer, gold and red sparks, purple pearl microflakies, holographic microflakies, iridescent blue-to-purple color-shifting microglitter, and a subtle holographic finish". This is one of those aqua blues that's so difficult to photograph accurately; I did my best but I don't even know anymore. I would say that it's a sky blue or a robin's egg blue but it definitely leans blue. The finish is kind of a creme holographic with shimmer. This is quite opaque; you probably only need one coat, but I used two and top coat. 

Such a Bitter Pill

The final polish I have for you today is Such a Bitter Pill ($11) and it's a departure from most of the other Supermoon shades I own in that it's a nude! The official description is of "a light pink-ish nude base filled with blue-to-orange, turquoise-to-purple, and green-to-red color shifting shimmer, blue sparks, holographic microflakies, and silver and iridescent holographic microglitter." I'd describe it as a peachy blush nude with some holo and an interesting but subtle shimmer that you can't quite catch the color of. Although the polish is kind of opaque in one coat, you really need two to get it perfect. I used 3 and top coat.

That's it for pictures, folks! The #SorryNotSorry collection drops on Thursday, April 19th at 4pm Pacific. This will be the start of a 6 day preorder that will end on Tuesday, April 24th at 9:59pm Pacific. You'll be able to find these polishes from The Howling Boutique's website when the time comes.

To reiterate, #SorryNotSorry will be available between April 19th - April 24th. However, you should definitely try to order within the first 24 hours, as you can use the coupon code SORRYNOTSORRY while checking out during that time period in order to receive 10% off the new polishes. In addition to that, the full set will be discounted at $52 (rather than the $55 it would cost to buy each polish separately), so you could potentially get all five polishes for less than $9.50 each!

Although you can order anything else available in the store, the coupon code will not apply to them. Free shipping is available if you order above a certain threshold, which will vary by your country. Currently, THB's Supermoon Lacquer only ships to the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK, but if you live elsewhere and would like to make a purchase, be sure to contact the owner, Mardi, and she will do her best to accommodate.

Anyway, I think that's all of the information you need, so allow me to leave you with these links on where you can find more from The Howling Boutique (and Supermoon Lacquer!):

  1. Beautiful swatches as usual and how nice that a coupon is being offered!

    1. Thanks, Erika! And yeah, I think they usually do a 10% discount off new collections when they're first released, but this time they're doing it a little differently.

  2. I love this so much!! Thank you!
