Superchic Lacquer Deadpool

Like Rum-Billie, Deadpool was released towards the end of last month by California-based indie polish maker Superchic Lacquer as part of the Urban Dictionary collection. The name of this polish comes from the fictional antihero of Marvel Comics. Beyond that, I must refer you to the Deadpool page of the Urban Dictionary, but suffice to say that this is one angry guy who knows how to nurse a grudge.

Creator Jennifer describes Deadpool as an ocean blue. I'll add: specifically, the Atlantic Ocean. This is a rich, inky Atlantic blue, slightly more vibrant than a navy, with the perfect kiss of green to it that seals the deal on that deep seawater vibe. I wouldn't call it stormy, but it's definitely moody! Finely milled holographic pigment creates nuanced hues of ultramarine, indigo and misty olive within the base in ambient light, and in the sun there's a brilliant linear prismatic display predominated by glowing arcs indigo, bright azure and spring green with a trailing corona of fiery red sparks that surrounds a glistening underlay of heavily silvered deep blue-green. 

Application was marvelous. It is impossible to overstate the sheer luxurious splendor of this formula, it is superb! The consistency is fluid, ultra creamy and dense with a medium viscosity and a buttery smooth, self-leveling glide over the nail that has the tiniest bit of pull to it. It goes right where you put it and stays there, maintaining a perfectly fluent attitude long enough to allow for plenty of finessing. Pigmentation is outstanding. As with Rum-Billie, this is a true one-coat holo. I added a second to improve a few lines, but it is unnecessary in terms of coverage and holographic effects. Cleanup should be approached delicately due to pigment travel and trace staining, but it certainly isn't an impossible task. Deadpool dries naturally in good time to a smooth, slightly flat finish that wants a nice topcoat to look its glossy best. I did not notice any affects to the holographic properties with topcoat.

Photos show two coats of Deadpool over treatment and basecoat with a topcoat of Seche Vite.

I love this beautiful, moody deep blue! The color is dense and dark, but never so dark as to appear black in low light. There's a soft glow to it in ambient light and a bold holographic display in the sun. Sleek and striking on the nail, it is a graceful counterpoint to the earthy hues of fall. 

love,
Liz

    1. Thank you, Lara! I think this is actually a tiny bit darker in person than it looks in the photos. Still a gorgeous bold blue, though, with a bright prismatic display in the sun.
