I love David Bowie.
No, I mean like I LOVE David Bowie.
So I’m sure that you all can just imagine how stoked I was that I found out Scofflaw had a polish called David Bowie’s Bulge.
Oh my God, are you kidding me?! Of course I had to have it.
I laughed so hard when I saw the name. My husband still shakes his head at me when I wear it because I giggle every time I look at my nails.
I knew I wanted something to spruce up this mani, and I remembered that I still had my amazing nail decals from Cha Cha Covers. Let me tell you, I hoard these things. They are quality decals, photo realistic details and just an all around great product (I first used them here so I knew they were going to be good).
The decals are on an opaque white background, which is why there is a slight line around him, but that could be easily fixed if I had cut it out better.
Here are macro shots of this beauty:
And of the Aladdin Sane decal:
What do you think?
I haven’t exactly kept it a secret that I really like the new indie maker Scofflaw Nail Varnish, so when her Etsy opened up last Sunday for the first time I was eagerly awaiting (and refreshing like a mad woman) the chance to grab some.
As soon as her shop opened up I snagged five of them (five?! I know! I haven’t gotten indies like that since NerdLacquer!), but by the time I logged into PayPal I got cart jacked (NOOOO) and was only able to buy this one.
While heartbroken that I didn’t get my hands on David Bowie’s Bulge (pun intended) I am really pleased I snagged Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
WTF is a lovely teal jelly- here let Scofflaw tell you:
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a teal jelly base packed with red, white, gold and brown glitters of various shapes and sizes.
Factoid: the term comes from scientists studying foxes in Alaska that had eaten saw grass, which acts like a heavy drug. The foxes lose motor control and move in a jittery way that almost appears like drunken dancing (LIES LIES my pants are on fire. We all know what whiskey tango foxtrot means).
The glitters work so well together, and I’m a sucker for teals anyway, and I think the tiny square glitter don’t take away from the polish like I see most square glitters doing.
I cannot say more good things about Scofflaw, and I really wish great success for her in the future.
YAY, more new indie polishes to show off!!
This is the first in a set that I got from a new indie maker, Paper Heart Productions.
This is Sugar and Spice, a beautifully unique polish, and I honestly don’t have anything like it in my stash.
It’s got tiny holographic pink glitters, then large gold and silver holographic squares. The squares were what drew me to the polish at first, I don’t see it used often and it’s so neat. I am actually blown away at how beautiful the squares are, these things are beyond breathtaking, when they hit sunlight (or really any type of light), they just explode with color. I had a time trying to decide what to layer this with, so I went with OPI’s Who the Shrek are You? and Andrea’s Choice Tightrope.
I seriously cannot say enough good things about this polish (or Kelley the owner), and here is the best news- if you’d like to try it yourself, Paper Heart Nails is only $4.50 for a full sized bottle and $3.00 for a mini!! Shazam that’s a deal! Not only that, but she has a great indie starter kit that ships internationally if you’d like to make your own.
Disclosure- Products were provided to me by the manufacturer for my opinion and honest review. See here for more information.
It’s still Halloween here; I can post this without feeling bad!
This beauty is Spectral Pup by Dollish Polish, and it’s a humdinger. I caught the restock sale of them recently so I was able to snag a few of her Halloween Nightmare Before Christmas polishes at a steal.
This is based on Zero, the adorable ghost dog from the movie, it’s a glow-in-the-dark glitter bomb, with a clear(ish) base with large and small orange and white hexes, and large and small white squares. It also seems to have smaller blue/green flashes to it. I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls from the Spider-Man collection as the undies.
Now onto the part you’re waiting for, a night shot!
