Octopus Party and Literary Lacquers: New Years Duo & HPB Presents Nail art
The OPNL New Year's Collaboration Collection features 4 all new duos! I had the opportunity to review the set that includes OPNL and LitLaq - two fantastic companies - and I couldn't be happier about it!
You can see the other duos by visiting the OPNL facebook page, as Dave will be posting those as the photos are sent to him. The duos are launching 12.26.15 @ 11 AM Central @ www.opnlduos.bigcartel.com
Octopus Party Milk and Honey is a yellow toned neutral with blue interference shimmer. I wore three coats with topcoat in the images below. It's an unusual color and finish for sure - I have nothing like it in my collection and don't recall seeing anything similar before. Formula was fluid and not streaky or draggy at all.
Literary Lacquers Sky of the Sky is a beautifully done holo with gold flakie shimmers throughout. This is also reminiscent of one of Pantone's colors of the year for 2016, but better. :) I wore two coats and topcoat for photos. Formula is consistently excellent as all other LitLaqs.
The literary inspiration comes from a poem by E.E. Cummings called I Carry Your Heart With Me. I had not read it before, but it is definitely emotionally evocative and worth a read. I'm bookmarking it to read again and again, I just love that poem!
I did up some nail art all 'fancy' like with snowflakes - these are from the Vivid Lacquer plate number VL006, a must have for any stamping enthusiast. I stamped with MDU polishes over the duo.
I hope you all enjoyed the review and are able to pick these up if your heart desires! I wish you all a Merry Christmas and I'll see you in the New Year!!
