How about some Octopus Party Nail Lacquer spam? I've been trying to get my sea-legs back, so I have a lovely post for you guys today. It is filled to the brim with sparkly Octo-goodness.

This is as good a place to start as any! Multichrome is the name of the game here, and this shimmering siren is in top form. I was worried about the shimmer in this one leaving me with brush strokes, but the shimmer practically dissolved into itself to create the streak-free finish below. It is also deliciously opaque. I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for this pictures.
The 10th House
Dave does black holos like practically no one else. He has a deep, abiding love for them...and for that we should be forever grateful. This is a lovely example; full of bronze shimmer, iridescent flakes, and cobalt sparks. It is almost creamy in formula, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.
This is a muted, cool lavender jelly holo filled with iridescent flakes. I find this supremely wearable, and I have to admit that I love the OPNL purpley shades. Just letting my bias fly here. This one is surprisingly opaque, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
This lovely oceany aqua jelly holo is filled with iridescent hexes and shimmering aquatic flakes. If you ever felt like you needed to have a tropical sea on your fingers, well...this is your shade. It was a group custom for the Octosquad, as proof that Dave loves us. It applies slightly sheer but oh-so-pretty. I used three thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
This shade sings to me. It is a true, delightful fuchsia holo with a soft jelly finish. This shade. I loooove fuchsia, so yeah. But I do love it. It applies really nice and evenly, though I did use three coats here plus a layer of Seche Vite.
Does this shade remind anyone else of King Conch? Because it reminds me of King Conch (which was a shade I had commissioned. Go check out the above link). It is very similar...except this one is stuffed with iridescent hexes and flakes. It has a very typical OPNL holo formula, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.
Fun fact: the first time I heard the term "Maui Wowie" was actually on Maui. Some random dude was chanting it in downtown Lahaina. It was a million years ago, but I always thought it was so awkward. Like...dude, we get it. You're a drug dealer. Don't be a creep.
Cribbage and The Horse
If I'm honest, this one is not for me. I am historically not a fan of yellows. And this is yellow. It really doesn't suit my pasty skin at all. Go check The Shop for a much better representation of this shade. This is a very springy, bright, happy yellow filled with gold shimmer and iridescent flakes. It is definitely more on the creamy side, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
Oh look, I have a souvenir from PCNY! This brilliant Caribbean blue holo has a luscious shift that dances from gold to green. The pink flakes give it a dazzling life, and it would be the best base for a mermaid manicure. It does apply slightly sheer, and I used three coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
Whew! That post sure was a long time coming. I am still digging though my backlog of pictures from my protracted moving-related hiatus. Which one was your favorite? I think that I actually like Maui Wowie the best here. It has a mischievous twinkle to it that I think is really fun. Let me know below if you have a special shade here...and you might check the shop because there are always a few special bits hanging around in there.
