Octopus Party Nail Lacquer The Cake is a Lye

How about some Octopus Party Nail Lacquer spam for this dreary Monday? It's been a heavy few days, and I just don't have it in me for something loud and brash. I need calm, serene, and soothing.

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer The Cake is a Lye

This is a soft, cloud-gray jellyish polish filled with twinkling iridescent flakes. It reminds me a lot of the faux snow my grandmother always had around her little Christmas village that I was not ever allowed to touch. The formula is classic OPNL: smooth and just thick enough to keep the fun bits properly dispersed. I used three thin coats plus Seche Vite for these pictures.

This was a limited edition color, so it is only occasionally available on the second-hand market. But there are some more lively shades available right this second in the Octoshop! Go check it out and report back!

And guys...be excellent to each other.
