(promotional samples ahead)
Today's offering a brief respite from the spook and spiders of Halloween. I am comparing the Summer surprise shade Go Deep and the Fall Sneakypeek Indikon from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer. They are similar, but not the same. The tl;dr is that even a muggle can spy the difference! But keep reading to see them side-by-side.
Dave seems to have the knack for making blues. Aqua, indigo, navy...oh Dave. I adore you. These two shades fall right in line with the amazing holo and impeccable formula that we all expect from OPNL at this point.
Once you look at these two colors side-by-side, the difference is immediately visible.
I applied Indikon to my index and middle fingers. It is a metallic denim blue holo. Depending on the light, it leans back and forth between cornflower and denim. The metallic-ish finish gives it a dusty/soft finish that is feminine without being frou-frou girly.
Go Deep is on my ring and pinky. It is a true glowing cobalt. There is no metallic shimmer beneath the rainbow...this one is all fury and shine and awesome. If you want a better description, you can hop over to my original post.
In macromode, you can see that Idikon is a little softer and more diffuse than Go Deep. But they share that majestic rainbow and the wonderfully smooth application...
Indikon will be back on October 10th, along with a few other magical shades. I think Go Deep might be gone forever, but I do see it popping up in sale/swap groups now and again. You might get lucky!
