Octopus Party Nail Lacquer for Ella Ann Cosmetics Fall 2016

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer is a staple around these parts. Without Dave and his octopolishes, who knows where we would all be at this very second. Even though I missed the restock over at Ella Ann Cosmetics, I can still share my swatches and thoughts. These polishes are worth seeing more than once.

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer for Ella Ann Cosmetics Fall 2016

(promotional samples ahead)

Butch Gardens
This is a teal linear holo with gold flakes and a pinkish twinkle. It is deliciously mysterious and bright, though it definitely feels like something for Fall. And creepily...this one matches my current hair color. Dave has a knack for that. I used three coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.



Hocus Focus
This is a medium blue linear holo with a pink shift. It has a dusting of holo glitter and I swear I see silver flakes in there as well. It is a little metallic and a little sheer, but after three coats is is opaque and glowy. It reminds me of pulled candy, but I promise I didn't eat it. 



Prey For Me
Hello, my vampy little friend. This is a deep raisin linear holo with a soft gold shimmer. It is the perfect color for Halloween and I am excited to break it out again this Fall. It applied like magic, and I used three whisper-thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for the pictures below.



Suffocation
This stunner is a grayed out violet holo with a blushing flash. It has a bronzed quality at certain angles and it is filled with little fuchsia flakes. I used three coats here, but honestly I didn't see a huge difference between the second and third coats. It applied like liquid metal, though. That was neat.



So which one of these was your favorite? I think, obviously, I love the vampy shade that is Prey For Me. I can't wait to work that one into some nail art in the coming weeks.
