Digital Nails – “The Walking Dad” Trio!

Nothing to Disclose

I have such a fun collection for you today readers!  We all know my love of Digital Nails, The Walking Dead, and nail polish.  What you may not know is that I love a good corny pun/joke as well.  There is a well-established internet meme phenomenon wherein Rick from The Walking Dead is featured in meme’s telling an apparently long-suffering “Coral” (seriously listen to the show sometime, when Rick is hollering for Carl it totally sounds like Coral!) some horrible and yet somehow hilarious “dad” jokes.

So, Digital Nails apparently also enjoys these because she released a gorgeous trio of coral (hahaha) polishes based on “The Walking Dad.”  When I saw them I knew I had to have them because of all of the reasons above.  Plus, they are just downright gorgeous.  You ready?  Let’s get started!

First up is Ten Tickles:

I know that you know it’s coming, an octopus joke!  The name of this polish is the punchline to the following “Walking Dad” joke:  “How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh, Coral? Ten, Coral! Ten tickles.”

Ten Tickles is a hot coral holographic polish with gorgeous rose-gold microflakies.  I am totally in love with this color and I wore it (with some nail art which I will show you later) and it was very well-received by my friends and family!

In this lighting you can see the flakies, so even if the sun isn’t out to play with all the holographic goodness there is still some stuff going on.  Plus, you all know that the more interesting and complex the holo, the better I like it!

The formula on this was perfection.  It went on very easily without any mishaps or issues whatsoever.  This is definitely a must-have for any collection.  Pictures show two coats plus topcoat.

Next up is He Doesn’t Carrot All:

This polish was originally debuted in an Easter-themed mega box of indies that came out around Easter time this year.  The joke for this polish is:  “How does emo bunny feel about Easter, Coral? He doesn’t care, Coral. He doesn’t carrot all.”

I’ll admit this one made me giggle but not as much as the next one!  He Doesn’t Carrot All is a pale coral creme with a lovely green flash of shimmer.

Formula on this one was utterly perfect.  I mean it’s everything I would expect from a creme-based polish.  No leveling issues, did not drag or streak.  Pictures show two coats plus topcoat.

Last but not least is my favorite of this trio.  They Can’t Even:

Just…oh.em.gee.  This polish is so stunning.  It’s my favorite because of the color and the name though!  This is more of an orangey-coral base packed to the brim with silver flakies.  The joke for this polish is:  “Why do teenaged girls walk in groups of three, Coral? Because they can’t even! They can’t even, Coral!”  I’m right there with those teenaged girls because I can’t even with this color!  I’m telling you this color has moved up into my top echelon of all time favorite polishes.

It just gets prettier and prettier every time I look at it!  I had no problems with application at all.  The only thing I will say is that those gorgeous flakies are very tenacious if they get on your cuticles so you’ll want to apply carefully to avoid too much clean up.  Pictures show two coats plus topcoat.

Seriously, look at that!  I can’t even.  I just can’t even!

OH I promised nail art didn’t I…well ok!

I started with Ten Tickles then did a little reverse stamping.  I used MoYou London – Pro 13 for the image and filled in the flowers with He Doesn’t Carrot All.

This is just simply They Can’t Even stamped with a cute swirly image from the Cici & Sisi Christmas 2015 plate.

Walker Bait – Dollish Polish

I know!  You are saying to yourself, “she knows that polish is discontinued, she knows it was limited edition…”  I do know, I do, but I couldn’t let another Sunday go by without declaring my love for this polish or the show that inspired it!

I apologize in advance, but my geek is going to show.

Let me give you a little perspective.  I would sit in my corner and pooh-pooh the whole Walking Dead mania with my Doctor Who and Sherlock filled fangirl Pinterest board.  I avoided the show like I would avoid a zombie!

Then, I finally gave in, two months ago.  I could no longer resist all of the wheedling and gushing floods of guts love that my friends were spilling all over their facebook pages and instant messages.  Two episodes in and I’m brandishing a machete in my backyard taking swings at my overgrown hedges to practice chopping down any zombie that crossed my path (Ok that all happened in my mind, I have an active imagination.  Forgive me.)

Ok previous foray into fantasy-land aside I did sit and watch first three seasons of The Walking Dead with all the rabid fascination of a 13-year old girl  who is in love with Justin Bieber.  Within two months I went from “ew, zombies.  I don’t like zombies, I like faeries and Doctor Who and Sherlock!” to “BRING ON THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, BISHES!!!”

Walker Bait by Dollish Polish was released in all of it’s gloriousness last month and I knew I had to have it!  A good friend of mine killed that lemming for me and I ran for my office to put it on as soon as I received it in the mail.  Yes we’re finally talking about nail polish now!

Look at that – isn’t it stunning?  It’s a beautiful olive green base with a hint of sparkle and the best part – it’s a linear holographic polish!  This baby just pops off rainbows of magnificence when you hit the sunlight (or a camera flash).  The picture above shows indirect natural lighting indoors and two coats topped by HK Girl Topcoat.

This picture shows indoors with flash – just look at that holo!  This reminds me, this is one of the things I love about HK Girl, it does not dull holos!  This polish lost none of its scintillating prism powers after applying the topcoat.  There were no application problems whatsoever and it was opaque in two coats.

Thank you for sticking with my long bout of fangirling!  The Walking Dead airs tonight!  You can find out about all the happenings about Dollish Polish on their facebook page (including their upcoming Limited Edition monthly polishes that are going to launch soon).  You can buy Dollish Polish here.

As always I want to know what you think and see those fingertips!  Go take a mani selfie of your Walking Dead inspired manis and post them on my facebook page!
