Market Street Soap Works Pearl Blue

Market Street Soap Works Pearl BlueI’m so excited to share this nail polish!

The end of last year I discovered Market Street Soap Works. Occasionally on Saturdays the boy and I go to the Charlotte 7th Street Public Market. It’s a great place to grab lunch and shop for local products. One Saturday I was looking for a Christmas present for my mom. The Market Street Soap Works table caught my eye. I picked up a bar of soap for her and one for myself. I was so impressed (as was my mother) by the soap I started researching the company a bit.

As it turns out, Market Street Soap Works is out of Fort Mill, SC (just a tad south of Charlotte). All their products are made by hand using all natural ingredients and not tested on animals. I followed their Facebook page and called it a day until several months later Joel, the owner/maker of MSSW products, posted he was working on nail lacquer. I more or less jumped out of my seat in excitement.

I realize none of you are shocked I decided to make Pearl Blue my first MSSW polish. I mean….it’s blue….and sparkly. Basically my two favorite qualities in any nail polish. Pearl Blue is a sheer pale blue packed with sparkle. While it walks the line of going into the frosted category it definitely avoids it and instead has a lovely glow. It’s such a refreshing polish for the warmer weather.

This polish does have a sheer formula but it is buildable. I used 4 coats in my swatches. I had no issues with bubbling or the polish being runny.

Overall I was very happy with this polish and definitely want to try others from MSSW. They have some really cool and unique polishes (um, Neon Yellow Hex Glitter….Chrome Hearts!? Yes please!).

For more info on Market Street Soap Works check out their website (they have free shipping on all their products if you live within the 48 contiguous states).

As always, there are more swatches below the jump 🙂

  1. What a beautiful shade – has all the things I love about the look of a white nail which is so hot today but has a blue I can even wear..I cannot wear powder blues but this iridescence in this lets me think I can do this one…I don’t buy many indies now – I got to the saturation and frustration point with them finding ones I like then out of stock no more coming – or dealing with the be there on release time or you won’t get it – then all the icky ones I got that were not worth the $.

    • I have a hard time with light blue and my skintone as well. Just a little off and the blue will make my skintone look very red. It’s so frustrating!

      I’m not really into Indie polish. There are so many brands and you just never know what you’re going to get. I’m always excited to see small companies I already trust get into the nail polish game, though:)

  2. Almost everything we carry is always available. I will note on the website if there is a limited quantity. Limited quantities are for our seasonal products. One thing we did not want to do was sell out and have nothing for two weeks. So many of the indie polish makers work that way. We are running a business. To be successful you must have items in stock, ship quickly and produce quality products. That’s what we focus on at Market Street Soap Works.
