Ohhh yes. Yes good. It is time. For Game of Throne-y goodness. I just. I took the day off (HELLUR MIGRAINE YOU SUCK) and I’ve just come out of bedcave because the world needs to know about these. All of these. Seriously. I’ve gone around shoving the bottles in the faces of my poor boyfriend and roommates (and also folks that hang out at the LAN center he works at) because holyfucksticksgameofthronesnailpolish. Also, to help soothe the brain, I’ve got one of the tracks from Legion’s soundtrack playing, Choir and Crickets, by Jeff Russo. I fell in love with it as soon as I heard it on the show, and honestly, it kinda fits with the theme of the lacquers. I’m not sure how. But it does. Probably.
Alright alright alright alright alright. So. This trio, started off as one polish, created as a custom for Emmalee of Liquor & Lacquer and Dave, the octo-wizard behind Octopus Party Nail Lacquer created two more polishes to go with it. And damn, he did gud.
We’ll start with I Drink and I Know Things, which is Emmalee’s custom. It’s described as a dark green to purple duochrome with pink, gold, and olive iridescent flakies. This one was nearly a one-coater for me, but I added a second because why not? But I mean. Forreal. This one, this one is delicious. It’s got this gorgeous finish from the flakies that make the shift so much more BAM. Naturally, my light pulled more green BUT in person, the purple seriously comes out to play. It’s just delicious. I think you’ll find yourself in love with it as soon as you see it.
Sweet Summer Child; a deep purple to blue duochrome with multichromatic flakies. MY DUDES. THIS ONE. The flakies, ho. lee. she. it. This one was a two-coater and those flakies were visible in ALLLL different types of lighting. Sweet baby jesus, be still my vampy heart. OH! And I stamped a little over it using Why Does The Air Hurt My Face? by Great Lakes Lacquer, which was a custom for the Multichrome Madness group on facebook. They just look so gorgeous together, and it stamped SO well!
And last but not least is Stoneheart; a bright fuchsia to pink duochrome with a strong blue shimmer. This one is opaque in two coats on everyone but me. It’s my damn VNL. It’s beautifully opaque, but with how stained my nails are, I needed that third coat. But in all seriousness, this one may just be my favorite. The blue shift in it is friggen B E A U T I F U L. Oh, and the second photo? YEAH THAT’S A DRAGON EGG, Y’ALL. My bestie Kaylyna made it for me back in October and now she’s got her very own shop over at KK’s Magical Creations. ANDANDANDAND. That last photo has a bit of stamping with The Centre Cannot Hold from Great Lakes Lacquers’ Polishing Poetic Collection. I mean, holy shit dudes. This multichrome holo stamped like a BOSS.
Now. I know y’all are sitting at your screens like
