Faeries & Folklore's Finding Nemo Inspired Collection, Part 1

***Press Sample***

It's Cinco de Mayo, a date to commemorate Mexico's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla!  Or, as most of America will celebrate it, another day to drink!

I kid...though there's sadly a lot of truth to that meme -_-  

But I digress - we're here for POLISH!!  New polish!!  EXCITING POLISH!!

Shameless baby bait:

And for those who don't care for baby bait:


...I got bored, okay?

Faeries & Folklore is releasing her Nemo inspired collection today, and I have some swatches for it!

First up - "A Sea Monkey Stole My Money"

A Sea Monkey Stole My Money is based off the character Dory and is a squishy royal blue jelly, perfect for stampwiches and regular jelly sandwiches (not the kind you eat, silly goose) :D  I am wearing three thin coats in the photos above.  Please note, there are some bubbles in some spots - that is not from the polish, but rather due to my very hot body temperature that causes almost every jelly to bubble on me.  It's rather annoying.

Next up - "Honorable Mentions"

Honorable Mentions (shown here over A Sea Monkey Stole My Money) represents all the other characters in the movie that did not have a polish created for them in this collection.  It's a nice glitter topper with lots of various shapes and sizes of metallic and holographic glitters.  It spread easily with even coverage.  I have it sponged over the tips and shown as a single layer on the ring finger.

Next up - "Takin' On The Jellies"

Takin' on the Jellies is based off the jellyfish jungle Dory and Marlin find themselves trapped in on their way to find Nemo.  It is a purple packed with rainbow flakies, subtle holo, and a blue shimmer.  It almost glows, the combination of goodness in this polish makes it really magical, very much like coming across a jelly forest underwater.  I am wearing two coats plus topcoat in the photos and an accent nail of freehand jellyfish.

Next - "Find A Happy Place"

Find a Happy Place was inspired by Peach, one of my favorite characters from the movie, and her iconic line when that brat Darla is tapping the crap out of the tank (don't be a Darla, folks).  This polish is packed with various sized and shaped holographic, matte, and neon glitters (including starfish shaped ones!) and a lovely sprinkling of scattered holographic pigment throughout.  I am wearing one layer over a nude polish in the photos above with a freehand accent nail of Peach.

And lastly is my personal favorite of the collection - "Dude!"

Dude! is inspired by Crush, the "righteous" sea turtle from the East Australian Current that saves Marlin and Dory after they fight their way out of the Jellyfish Jungle.  Dude is a gorgeous jewel-toned green subtle holographic with small green holographic glitters and a lovely bluish/green shimmer.  I am wearing two coats in the photos above with topcoat and a freehand nail of Crush.
