Rogue Lacquer Heads Will Roll | Polish Pickup October 2019

If you're a spooky kid, then this month's Polish Pickup is for you. These brands are really getting in the spirit of the season, and this satiny cobalt shade from Rogue Lacquer is inspired by one of my favorite holiday stories: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

This pretty, super saturated blue is filled with shifty flakes and a mysterious fog of brilliant blue shimmer. It is super opaque and I only used two coats here, under a layer of qdtc. I always worry about flakes in super opaque bases, because often they refuse to lay nicely...but these stayed flat and didn't need to be smooshed or prodded. The color reminds me of a fancy satin negligee. It looks fluid and rippling, and the green shift of the flakes remind me of spooky eyes in the darkness.

Why yes, I am in the Halloween spirit already. Why do you ask?

The inspiration for this one is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It holds a special place in my heart because this is one of the first spooky stories I remember from my childhood. I remember being very young and sitting on the mildy sticky carpet of my...second grade classroom, staring raptly at my teacher as she read the story to the class. I was immediately hooked on the spooky. To this day, I still love a good gothic horror story and I lay all the blame for that squarely with Washington Irving and his ultrachilling story.
