Octopus Party never disappoints. Not me, anyway. Dave dropped a lovely shade on us for the Black Friday weekend, all very hushhush. I was under strict orders not to post for several days. Well...it's been several days, so I can show you the Crown.
(promotional samples ahead)
I admit to being less than impressed when I unwrapped this gleaming little bottle. Really? A holo topper? I even told Dave as much, and he told me to have faith. I should really stop doubting the man. This searingly bright, icy violet-leaning silver is the perfect silvery holo. I slapped on three of the thinnest layers I could muster for these pictures, followed by my customary layer of Seche Vite. It was stunning. STUNNING. Are you stunned? I scrambled over cats and kids and piles of laundry for a peek at this glowing treasure in the sunshine...just as a bank of clouds rolled over my house.
Yeah. But it is so amazing, it hardly needs the sun.
I did, however, employ my sad little on-board flash. It is a pale shadow of the real rainbow this amazing polish holds. But if it looks this breathtaking in a dark corner of my garage with my pathetic flash...I can't imagine what it looks like in the sun. I only have to wait seven or eight months to see it!
Like I said above, this was limited edition for Black Friday...and it was only announced in The Octosquad. Which you should join. There are still two shades up in the etsy shop as of this writing, so you still have a chance to try an OPNL, or maybe just grab that creamy red before it disappears forever.
