Nothing to Disclose
My dearest readers this post is going to conclude my mini-series on my Black Friday purchases! Today we’re going to probably have some sad and happy feels and there will definitely be pretty polish. Let’s look at some Spellbound Nails shall we?
First up I have Zombie Guts!
I was excited to try this polish. It’s just the sort of thing that I really love, jelly based? CHECK! Glitter? CHECK! Geeky/Nerdy/Zombie references? CHECK! I think that if I was imagining Zombie Guts as a nail polish that this is just the kind of thing I would come up with! This polish is a true green jelly-based glitter polish filled with small metallic red square and dot glitters, medium matte white dots, and iridescent lime (or light) green micro-glitter.
This polish is just as squishy as you would expect from a jelly polish! Application was good, though I did have to fish just a bit for the bigger glitters. I’m no stranger to this however and I didn’t find it to be a problem at all. The polish dries to a satiny finish but I shined it right on up with a glossy topcoat! On these pictures it appears that there is an ever so slight VNL however that was not apparent to me in person. Picture shows three coats plus topcoat!
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; Spellbound Nails – Zombie Guts; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl Topcoat
Next up we have a polish inspired by the 11th Doctor (remember me mentioning the sad feels?) Let’s all take a moment and remember how awkward and wonderful he really was. I can’t wait to see what Capaldi does as the 12th Doctor but I really will truly miss 11 far more than I thought I would back when he was crashing into little girls’ yards and getting them to cook up everything in the kitchen to find out what he wanted to eat.
There’s this moment when the Doctor swoops in to pick up River early on in his travels with Amy and River lands the TARDIS and says “we’ve landed” and 11 is indignant and states that of COURSE they haven’t landed and she proves it and then he becomes distressed and wants to know why it didn’t make the sound. The sound that EVERY Doctor Who fan knows. River’s response is that it’s not supposed to make that sound but that the Doctor…Leaves the Brakes On!
I sort of, but not really, feel bad for that lengthy introduction. But, that’s what you get when you get me going about Doctor Who! This is Leave the Brakes On, a beautiful TARDIS blue jelly/crelly holo! This blue may actually be the closest to TARDIS blue that I have in my collection or that I’ve seen in general. I knew as soon as I saw it that I was going to have to have it.
I say that it’s a jelly/crelly holo because the base is not a creme base but more in line with a jelly or crelly base. It has a bit of squishiness that you don’t get from a true creme base. The holo is evident but not so strong that it blinds you while driving down the road. Application was lovely and pictures show two coats plus top coat.
Here’s a picture with flash so you can see the holo effect! So sparkly! This is a Limited Edition polish and she’s said that once it’s gone it may not be remade due to a particular pigment that she used being discontinued so I definitely think you should snag it up!
