Octopus Party Nail Lacquer is, as we all know, one of my favorites. OctoDave took a chance on me many years ago, and it is his fault that I am here today. He isn't as prolific as some brands, so I always feel special when I have something fresh to post from him. Like today. Yay!

Heavy Medal is a slightly silvery bronzed metallic polish with a smattering of tiny gold flakes and a soft holo sparkle. I applied two normal coats, and then sponged the last coat on to bring the shimmer to life. It reminds me of aged brass hand rails in the turn-of-the-century public spaces.
It is a very metallic polish, and as such...you will have some mild brush strokes in the finish. Which is cool if you like that "actual metal" metallic look. I prefer the "spray painted" metallic finish. I also think that, for the purposes of photos, sponging is a good choice. It is a bit of a darky and moody girl, and sponging helps show all the nuances that are usually only obvious in real life.
