I was going to title this the Rave but not Rave collection as a joke for some of us in the fan group, who are set that this was turning out to be a Rave collection :P But then I thought people may not actually read this post and find out that's not the name of the polishes, then have a conniption fit when they couldn't find the Rave but not Rave collection :P
Dave of Octopus Party Nail Lacquer recently released four new colors for summer. So here's some swatch porn for you :D
Let's start with Disco Tech:
Blacklight Shot - BAM!
Disco Tech is an awesome purple jelly packed with various sized neon orange dots. It's packed, but it's not super thick, like oh so many other glitter-packed polishes. I am wearing 3 thin coats and a topcoat in the photos above over my nekkid nails. Yeah you can see my Visible Nail Line through it - I've got naughty nails, what can I say?
Next up: Sobriquet
Sobriquet is a vampy deep, dark blue (like, Midnight Zone blue) with a smattering of blue shimmer. It's so freakin' gorgeous, folks. I luffles it. My favorite of the four new polishes. I'm wearing 2 coats with a topcoat.
Here we have: Blessed Be The Tide That Binds
Blessed Be the Tide That Binds is a sparkletastic glitter topcoat packed with various sized green and blue holo glitters, as well as a turquoise flakie shimmer. It's glorious. I am wearing 1 coat over Sobriquet on all fingers but the ring finger - that one's doing a solo act with 2 coats. All nails are topcoated.
And lastly we have: Racqueteering
Racqueteering is a HOLY CRAP neon citron color - very reminiscent of a tennis ball. I just can't with this one - it's a perfect neon with incredibly smooth application, and opaque in 2 coats with no basecoat. You read that right, NO BASECOAT. *I die...and come back.*
You want these? Oh c'mon, yes you do! There will be a small re-stock this morning of the leftover bottles from the last launch. When? 11AM EST. Here are some linkages:
