Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Spring 2016

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer is killing it this spring. Not only is there the Ella Ann exclusives, but there is a completely different quartet coming to the etsy shop!

(promotional samples ahead)

Bismuth Attire
This is a blackened bronze shimmer with warm and cool iridescent flakes. It reminds me of beetles and flies and spooky fairies and I love this idea for spring. It was a bit of a beast to photograph for me, so I recommend just buying it so you can see it for yourself. I used three thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite.

Easy Bake Coven
This soft, squishy iris purple is filled with scattered holo and microflakes. It is a decidedly feminine shade...but I still adore it. I have seen this on a decent variety of skintones, and so far it flatters everyone. I used three thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these photos.

Going Coastal
This is a creamy warm aqua with a fine microshimmer. If you've ever had the misfortune to wear seen OPI Amazon-Amazoff in person, this has a very similar subtle shimmer. It applied amazingly smooth and easy for a shade this pale, and I only used two coats plus Seche Vite for the photos below.

My Little Homie (over China Glaze White on White)
The rare OPNL glitter, this time sporting springtime colors! This flurry of white, pale citron, and pink glitters can be worn alone or layered over another color. It is so dense, I bet you could make it opaque in less than three coats. I used just one coat in the pictures below.

These are all stunners, but Easy Bake Coven is so ethereal I want to wear it everyday. I wonder what kind of art I can come up with here...

These shades usually go pretty quickly, so I would definitely join the Octosquad so you can hear about all of the pre-order goodness. And check out the Octoshop too!

  1. Great swatches! The lavender shade is my favorite, but I like the glitter, and I'd pick up the black one just out of curiosity. I bet it's stunning in person!

  12. I happened to be lucky that my friend couldn't find a date for an event so he generously took me with him, which happened to be one of the best experience for me in recent times. I was lucky enough to see this venue NYC. If you get a chance to check this out please do so.
