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.

Since the nail polish collection is quite large (17), this is my second review for the series. In case you missed it, check out the first 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 glitter topper, Coin Trick, is just one coat. They were all buttery smooth, easy to apply and fun to wear.

Coin Trick
Lime-gold microglitter floating among gold flake. Can be used as a lucky topcoat, or slather on two coats for an opaque treasure chest of gold.
