OPNL Fall Collection, Part 1 and Giveaway!!

***Press Sample***

An Octopus Party Nail Lacquer giveaway?!?

On October 10th, 11 AM EST, Octopus Party Nail Lacquer is releasing Part 1 of the new Fall collection, and I'll be giving away a mini sized set!!  Before we get to that, let me show you some swatch photos of the goods!

First up in the collection is "But Not In Vein:"

But Not In Vein is a gorgeous deep blood red with a red shimmer that is almost impossible to capture on film (a common lament amongst all swatching this polish).  Shown above is two coats with no topcoat (it dried super shiny all on its own!).  This red also did NOT stain, as you can see around the cuticles, which I always *love* in a red.

Next up is "Fenrir:"

Fenrir is a beautiful silver micro glitter polish with a slight lavender shimmer.  This one can be built to opacity in 3 coats (shown on my middle and ring fingers) or as a topper (shown in 1 coat over But Not In Vein on my pointer and pinky).  This one is a definite stunner in the sunlight!  It did not dry to a texture, as I've found lots of micro glitters tend to do, but it did need a topcoat to bring out the sparkle a bit more.

Next is "Indikon:"

C'mon, you didn't think Dave would forget adding holos to his collection, did you?!  Indikon is a fantastic deep royal blue linear holo - and I am wearing it in ONE COAT in these photos!!  Ohhhh the gloriousness of it <3  No staining, smooth application (though it can get streaky, so be mindful of that), dried to a semi-shiny finish, so I added a topcoat in the photos above.  

(If you're looking for a comparison of Indikon to Go Deep, Nichole over at Bedlam Beauty did a great write-up about them here!)

And lastly is "Metaphysics:"

You know I always save what I think are the most stunning for last :D  Metaphysics is a very light lavender purple linear holographic with a silver shimmer.  Holy crap, guys, this one is a STUNNER!!!  While it could probably be a one-coater, I did two, because it applied like a dream and I used thinner coats.  Dried to a semi shiny finish, so I added a shiny topcoat to make it pop even more in the photos.

I am in looooooove with this part of the collection, and cannot WAIT for the second!!  Dave did a smashing job with these!  The official opening for pre-order is this Saturday at 11AM EST at the OPNL Etsy Shop. can try to win a mini-sized set!!

I've attached the Rafflecopter widget below.  The giveaway will be open for 1 week and will end next week on the 14th.  The only RULE is that you cannot use giveaway accounts - and yes, I do check, every time.

Good luck!!!

***Polish was purchased at a blogger discount for photography purposes.  All opinions and experiences with the polish are my own and remain 100% honest.
