Sorcery of Steel

Happy Thursday!  We're almost to the weekend!  And what a glorious weekend it shall be, with a preorder from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer!!  You all know how crazy I am for their lustrous lacquers, and with a preorder you can get some great colors with no stress! 

You may remember the awesome winter duos OPNL released last year - some of those colors are making a comeback!!  INCLUDING the most stunning polish I have ever seen, The Bumble, which satiated my lust for Chanel Holographic.  

Today I have for you one of the newest colors from this years' duos, a gorgeous soft gray holo, Steel Wolf.  It flashes a subtle burnt sienna which makes it more complex than your standard gray holo.  That's the octo magic that Dave sprinkles in each bottle.  

Starting tomorrow at 11am EDT, there is a preorder in the Octo Shop which ends Saturday at 5pm EDT - you do not want to miss out! OPNL is amazing and it's time you joined the addiction!!

For the Love of Lacquer

Hey everyone! Can't believe January is nearly over, seems like just yesterday was Christmas.  Time is sure flying this year so far.  Today I have for you a lemming and a custom!

I've talked about Hella Holo Customs before - the super rad Facebook group that hosts one or two indie polish makers each month to make custom polishes for the group members.  Just as I predicted, the group customs have called out to my wallet month after month, but I cannot. resist. the. pretties!!  The good news is that you can still join HHC and get your hands on the current polishes, there's also a really awesome group for people to rehome the past customs.  Feel free to contact me if you want info on how to join!

The first lacquer featured today is a longtime lemming of mine, Lilypad Lacquer's Illusionist.  It is nearly impossible to capture the magenta flash in this gorgeous polish, in person it is even more stunning than you see here.

The other polish is a special custom for HHC that was only available for a few weeks, Smitten Polish (now called Dreamland due to a trademark issue) made a gorgeous pinky lavender called One Heart.  It seems to photograph differently on everyone, no one can say for sure if it's pink or purple.  It's both!  In these shots it leans pink as it picks up that magenta flash from Illusionist.

Lilypad Lacquer is an Australia indie and is available here

Dreamland (formerly Smitten Polish) is available here and relaunches tomorrow!
