Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer: Shiny New Things

Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer is one of those brands that I love, but I don't think enough people know about yet. The formulas are silky smooth and wonderful, the colors are fun, and the maker is a just a doll. As this trying year for indie polish draws to a close, I think we should turn away from the awful among us, and pay more attention to those who deserve it. And also shiny things. Because shiny.

(promotional samples ahead)

Deluxe
Deluxe is a super-rich cadet blue syrupy shade with silver flecks floating within. I think it would make an excellent TARDIS blue, and I think any Whovian would be glad to catch this in their stocking this Christmas. I used two medium coats + Seche Vite below, and I had no troubles at all.

Frisky
Frisky is an electric violet neon jelly-ish filled with silvery blue shifting shimmers. It is the best neon I have worn in a long time, and I was definitely sad to take it off. I used three whisper-thin coats + SV for the pictures below.

Kiss My Sass
Kiss My Sass is a searingly bright cool-toned neon pink with a fine gold pearl. Like a true neon, it dries slightly matte, so I used a nice layer of SV for these pictures. It is happily UV reactive as well. I used two normal coats below.

Posh
Posh is my favorite. I really try not to pick a favorite before I am finished swatching, but I could stop here and be totally happy. This cool violet cream is filled with rose-gold shimmer and it glows like magic. I could wear this every day and never tire of it. I used two normal coats + SV here, and that pearly glow makes it look a million miles deep.

Brazen
Brazen is a rosy warm blush holo with a metallic undercurrent. It is a great SFW shade and is very likely universally flattering. I used two normal coats + SV for the pictures here.

Brash
Brash is a warm, plummy violet holo with quite likely some coppery gold flakes hiding here and there. The linear holo is so strong it is hard to tell what else might be lurking. I am definitely not complaining about that. I used two normal coats + SV here and it was as smooth as glass.

Divine
Divine is a emerald teal superholo. It is glowy and magical and I love it. I was initially afraid of it because teals tend to stain me...but it left without a trace once I was done. I used two thin coats + SV here and it glowed like fire.

This isn't a proper collection, though I feel like there is enough of a cohesive vibe that it could have been one. This is more of a "hahaha lets gtfo of etsy!" celebration. Check out her shiny new shop, and keep your eyes peeled for sales.
