Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Summer 2016

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer is back, now with 100% more neons! I know, right!? Who doesn't love a good neon polish? I mean yeah...there are those other two stunners...but neons! Keep on reading to see what I'm blathering on about.

Disco Tech
This is an electric fuchsia pink with neon orange circle glitter. Ok, I'm done. Let's all go home. I love circle glitter to a ridiculous degree, and when paired with my favorite color...well, let us just say that my objectivity is a bit iffy on this shade. It applies wonderfully, though I think medium coats would be better for a quicker dispersal of glittery goodness. I used three thin coats here plus a layer of Seche Vite. I think it would also be a great shade to layer over a richer fuchsia base...like Zoya Charisma.

Sobriquet
This is an inky simmering pot of stars in liquid form. Really. This polish is so dark blue that I swear Dave scraped the night sky into the bottle. The damned thing gave my camera fits, regardless of settings. It is a super dark teal-leaning navy filled with glitter, flakes, and shimmers. I only needed two coats plus Seche Vite for these pictures. (also, I did wear this shade as a full manicure for over a week with nary a chip. Gotta love that.

Racqueteering
That elusive creamy citron. This searing shade is the official neon of 2016. I need all of the neon greens, pleaseandthankyou. It is smooth and delicious in two medium coats. It even kinda stamps, though I took no pictures because I'm an idiot. This shade is also UV reactive...which I also forgot to take a picture of...again with the aforementioned idiocy.

Blest Be the Tide That Binds feat. OPNL Spirit Mint
Finally, an OPNL glitter. I love Dave's glitter bombs. He has such a solid, floaty formula. They can usually be built up fairly easily, but can also layer smoothly over pretty much whatever you want. I layered one this coat over Spirit Mint, but it also looks awesome over the other shades in this collection. Check out the post by my favorite of all the pathologists, she nails it.

This glitter has so very much going on that I decided to check it out over a few more things.  I love how different aspects pop up over different colors. I even kinda love it over nothing. It definitely has a more beachy vibe that way.

One coat over China Glaze Liquid Leather • three coats over clear base • one coat over B Polished Friends by Choice


I think my favorite is definitely Disco Tech...but then those other three work so well together. I have some art coming up that will knock your socks right off, guys. Don't choose a favorite until you see what I have in store...

These were available via preorder in the Octoshop, but there are still some other goodies hiding in there for you to bring home! And you should definitely join the Octosquad. It is the best place to catch polish on the second-hand market and hear about restocks/new collections.
