It is Polish Pickup time again. This is fast becoming my favorite part of the month. I try to limit myself to three or four...but this month is going to be difficult. The theme is Monsters & Myths, and you know that is right up my alley. Today I have a frightfully delightful shade to share! Spoiler alert: you're going to go batty over it!
(promotional samples ahead)
This is Banshee Scream from Night Owl Lacquer. She is a murky multichrome with a teal green face, covered with holo and filled with flakes. You see flashes of fuchsia and violet at the edges. The shifts are far more visible in natural light, but you'll just have to bring her home to see them all. It does apply a tiny bit on the sheer side, but not so sheer that you'd need undies. I used three thin coats here plus a layer of Seche Vite, and I think that is exactly right. It was enough to cover my agressively visible nail line, so you might even get away with two normal coats if you're in a hurry. I prefer more sheer layers as it lets the flakes glow.
I had to include three different images of the same pose this time. This is one of those polishes that changes with the slightest shift in angle and light. It is definitely lively.
The shop opens up tomorrow at 11am eastern. You should definitely check it out as early as you can, because there are some shades that are limited. You have all weekend to shop, but don't rest on your laurels! There are some amazing shades this month.
