I've got 4 beautiful polishes that Dave, the alchemist of Octopus Party Nail Lacquers, created as exclusives for Ella Ann Cosmetics. No, they are not available anymore. Yes, I am a Lamesaur for not posting this before the window to purchase was closed. Shame on me. A million mosquito bites on my foot.
But I wanted to at least share some photos with you, in case you did not purchase because you thought, "Meh, it's just polish."
It is so much more though...
We'll start with Butch Gardens:
Butch Gardens is a gorgeous tealy green with an amazing purple shimmer and a strong holographic effect. I luffles it ^_^
Next in line is Suffocation:
I don't know what to call Suffocation, as it seemed to change colors constantly in different lighting, which was awesome!! I guess if I had to label it, I'd take is as a steel grey with dusty purple undertones and shimmer, and a very strong linear holo effect.
Here we have Prey for Me:
Chocolate. Brown. HOLO. Prey For Me is my dream brown holo polish - it's the perfect vampy, yet cozy shade and it's holo. This polish has my Fall name written all over it!
And finally we have my personal favorite - Hocus Focus:
Hocus Focus is another shifty lady - purple in some lighting, periwinkle in others, and full on vibrant bright blue in the sunlight with a more subtle holograhic effect. It's really, really gorgeous and the shifts and effects in in remind me of Sleeping Beauty's dress that changed colors - make it pink! make it blue!!
Overall Dave knocked these out of the park. Can't say I'm surprised as I have yet to stumble across an OPNL that is garbage. I don't think that's possible...
So anyway! I know the Fall Part 1 collection *should* be coming up for a second round of pre-orders this Saturday, but don't quote me on that... If so, I'll have a blog post for you on that collection BEFORE it re-releases. In the mean time, make sure you are following Octopus Party Nail Lacquer where you can - here are the links:
Whatcha think? Any of these you like the best? Any of you snag these while they were available??
Polishes were provided at a special blogger discount in exchange for photography and an honest review.
