Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Grimes and Logan Swatch and Review

10:46 AM

I'm super excited about today's post. I was contacted by Dave, the man behind Octopus Party Nail Lacquer and just the coolest guy ever, to work with some of his upcoming products. Ummmmmm DUH!! I fell in love with Octopus Party Nail Lacquer after I was forced by Jen to buy some of his polish at PolishCon NYC. He has a knack for color combos and this is one man who knows his way to a woman's heart...SPARKLE! These will be available to pre-order in just a few days so we are going to jump right into things.

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer is going to be introducing a new monthly series to the mix. The Holo of the Month series will draw inspiration from and focus on women in music. You'll only be able to pre-order these during the last weekend of the month.

Per the maker: Grimes is inspired by "Grimes, a Canadian born recording artist who writes, produces, mixes and engineers the vast majority of her own music. From shoegaze bedroom pop to darkly textured club beats her music is wholly representative of her personality and processes. A rarity in any genre, her independence and self-sufficiency has led to some of the most assured releases of the past decade. Her work is a thrilling pastiche of genres rooted in impeccable knowledge, craft, and at times, startling authenticity."

Grimes is a smooth merlot jelly with UCC flakies that dance in a beautiful cloud of holo sparkle.

Per the maker: "Logan is a custom created for Melissa Lopez that was commissioned to honor of her first child, her son Logan."
Logan is a polish that is going to mess with you in the best way possible. It had me feeling like it was a blackened olive base, but no...it's a deep, almost black, charcoal base that is packed with an insane amount of linear holo with beautiful blue flakes that pop out at random moments, and I swear there is a flash of copper in there when the light hits it just right.

YOU GUYS!!!! I have no words. Both of these were perfect! From the formula to the application to the colors...and all that sparkle! Dave knows what he is doing, and you see why people commission him to make customs for them. Absolutely beautiful! Both of these will be available to preorder at www.etsy.com/shop/OctopusPartyNL from July 28th at 11 am EST through July 30th at 12 pm EST. Both of them will be $12, and believe you me...you need them both! 

Now, this next polish was originally going to be available with the other two, but the flakies aren't available at the moment...and they won't be until September. So, the pre-order for it is being pushed back, but he gave me permission to tease you all with it in the mean time. 

Favourite Worst Nightmare
Per the maker: "Favourite Worst Nightmare is a custom created for Trina Edwards and is inspired by the Arctic Monkeys album of the same name."
Favourite Worst Nightmare is the perfect deep navy blue jelly filled to the brim with silver holo micro flakies.

Go ahead and add Favourite Worst Nightmare to your wish list and set a reminder for the last weekend in September. It will be $11 and it is STUNNING!! Make sure you are following Octopus Party Nail Lacquer on all of their social media platforms (links below) to stay updated on news, releases, and sales.

So...are you getting both or both this weekend? I love these dark, vampy polishes he creates. They make my heart sing for joy! Which one(s) is calling your name?
