Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Crepuscular

 promotional sample ahead

I've been sitting on these swatches for a while. I didn't want to post them before everyone got their bottles because spoilers...but I think they've all gone out, and people are even beginning to swap things. I wish this hadn't been a holiday special, because it is amazing.


Before you ask, this goofy name is actually perfect for this color. This is exactly the color of the sky as the sun sinks below the ocean, complete with glitter and holo flare...or is that just here? I don't know that I have ever had a polish be so aptly named.



Like all of Dave's polish, this applied like magic. There was some...discussion about whether or not to treat this like a topper. I decided to go my own way, and layered three thin layers without any fancy base or undies. I LOVE IT. It has a depth and life in person that will catch your eye immediately. I mean, you totally could use this as a topper...but I wouldn't. 









In the picture below, I applied two thin coats over black on my index, middle, and pinky fingers. On my ring is Crepuscular in three layers alone. It looks ok layered...but loses some of the magic when you use a different color underneath. Maybe I'm a purist? I took the picture in the sun...and look at that flare!
