Polish Post/Press Sample: "Chimera" by Octopus Party Nail Lacquer

*Giveaway prize, upgraded to full size for swatches*

Hiya!  Long time no post I know - I've been such a slacker >.<  This weekend my family and I went to our property in Flagstaff to relax and celebrate my dad's upcoming birthday ^_^  It was lovely!  Gorgeous view of the Painted Desert:


Today I wanted to share with you the beautiful "Chimera" by Octopus Party Nail Lacquer!  I recently won the mini size in a giveaway in the fan group on Facebook, and Dave (owner and alchemist) was so awesome that he sent me a full size instead and asked if I'd like to swatch it for him.

I am no fool, I (over-zealously) said YES!  And here they are!

BEHOLD - Chimera:



Direct Sunlight




Indoors





Chimera was created as Dave's birthday polish :)  It is a beautiful shaded olive-colored holographic polish with some amazing multichrome flakies that pack a real sparkly punch!!  Application was amazing - very smooth, and this polish was nearly opaque with just one coat!  I am wearing two in the photos above.  It dried in under 5 minutes to a shine, though an added topcoat really made that linear holographic effect pop!  It's an all-around gorgeous polish :D  I added a 15 second video to my Instagram account of the amazing holographic and sparkly goodness of Chimera in the sunlight, if you wanna check it out!

Currently the OPNL shop is out of stock, but I know Dave's working on lots of upcoming goodies, and will be re-stocking soon, so make sure you check back frequently- better yet, "like" the Facebook page so you won't miss ANY re-stock and new polish announcements!

Hope you all enjoy/survive your Monday!  See you soon <3

  3. "Alchemist" is really a perfect name for polish creators- they turn piles of glitter and pigment into gorgeous bottles worth their weight in gold! This is such a pretty polish!
