It’s been a while since we’ve seen a new release from 1850 Artisan Polish, so get ready to get excited for this new trio of creams perfect for summer!
All three of these shades were very similar in formula, so I’ll address that right now! For all three polishes, I used three coats of polish. If you have shorter nails, these will probably be two-coaters for you. However, I needed one extra coat to even out some streaks and make sure the color was even throughout my entire nail. I found that application was easiest and looked the best when I waited for each coat to dry completely in between coats. The formulas are all really creamy, and I feel like if they were slime they’d be really fun to touch. Is that a weird comment to make about a nail polish formula? Does anyone else know what I mean?!
Additionally, I felt like my outdoor/natural lighting photos were more color-accurate for all three shades, so I will concentrate on my outdoor photos throughout this post. However, I really do try and make sure that I show each shade in different lighting settings, so I did decide to include my artificial lighting shots as well. I also paired each of these polishes with one of 1850’s beautiful flakie toppers! Keep scrolling to see how these shades look with flakies on top.
This trio will release Saturday, July 28th at 1 PM EST on the 1850 Artisan Polish website.
First up is my personal favorite, Lover’s Point, under artificial lighting.
Lover’s Point is a pale lavender cream that was inspired by a tiny shell that 1850’s maker found on Lover’s Point Beach near Pacific Grove, California.
Here’s a close-up shot of this shade also under natural lighting.
Here is Lover’s Point paired with 1850 Moon Jelly flakie topper. I absolutely love the opalescent effect this topper gives when paired over a lighter shade!
Next up is Pismo Beach, a beautiful nude cream, under artificial lighting.
Pismo Beach is a warm-toned neutral cream to match the boardwalk and sand of the beach. Here is Pismo Beach in natural, direct sunlight.

Paired with 1850 Lion’s Mane Jelly flakie topper.
The last polish in this trio is Marina del Rey.
Marina del Rey is a pale blue cream: the ideal shade to wear to a day by the sailboats in the Marina. The following swatch is under direct sunlight.
Here’s one last close-up in direct sunlight!
Finally, here is Marina del Rey paired with 1850 Crystal Jelly flakie topper in direct sunlight.
