Launching today is the Winter 2015 Collection by Octopus Party Nail Lacquer, and I've got some swatches for ya!
First up: Ilex Vinum
*Disclaimer: I realize my skin looks jaundiced or mannequin-like in the below photos - my camera just would not capture the true color of this polish, so I made the executive decision to photoshop the polish to its true color, sacrificing my skintone in the process :P
Check out that blue flash!!! *drools*
Ilex Vinum is a gorgeous holly berry red with a holographic effect with a blue flash. It is a stunner! It is also *almost* a one-coater - depends on how thick you like to apply. I am wearing two thin coats in the photos above with no topcoat.
Next up: Kin Peaks
Kin Peaks is a lovely medium light blue with a subtle holographic effect. This one is opaque in 2-3 coats - I am wearing three thin ones in the photos above with a quick-dry topcoat.
Next: Menthol Nights
Last up: Crown of Queen Elizabeth
The sun decided to make an appearance for THIS beauty, so the pic to the right is a direct sun shot!
Crown of Queen Elizabeth is a gorgeous white/very light grey ultra holographic polish, opaque in 3 coats. There's really nothing bad I can say about this absolute stunner... You absolutely need this polish - you NEED this polish. Usually, when I get press samples in, I log them and set them aside to work on them when I'm ready to swatch them. When I got this one, I didn't wait. I still had the bubble wrap and package empty on my kitchen table when I immediately put this beauty on my nekked nails :D YOU NEED THIS.
