Black Phoenix Trading Post: American Gods


Black Phoenix Trading Post (BPTP) has conspired with Neil Gaiman to create a series based on American Gods, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, SFX Magazine and Bram Stoker Awards for Best Novel, and now a Starz television series.
This is a charitable, not-for-profit venture: proceeds from every single bottle go to the CBLDF, which works to preserve and protect the First Amendment rights of the comics community.

The nail polish collection is quite large (17), and I have four of those to share with you in this review. I believe Ted will be sending more of the collection to me as he replenishes stock. They're quite beautiful, and the formula for each of them is fantastic! Photos show two coats, however; the flakie topper is just one coat. They were all buttery smooth, easy to apply and fun to wear.

    1. I enjoyed trying the flake topper over the other three polishes, it looks great. The matte look is wicked cool, no?
