Lavender Indies

I will never shut up about how much I love indie polishes and indie makers. They are the purest forces of light and goodness in this awful, wretched world and I will champion them until the day I die. Maybe. Anyways, here’s some cool indies.

Illyrian Polish Awaken Your Magic cleared my skin, flourished my crops, forgave all of my debts and brought light and prosperity into my home. I’m a fundamentally better human being for having it in my life.

Awaken Your Magic is a slightly sheer lavender base absolutely packed with pinky-copper shimmer and a scattering of silver holographic glitter. Pictured is two coats; I could possibly have used a third, but that shimmer is so strong that it covers any nail line outside of extremely harsh lighting conditions, like the flash of a camera.

Next I have Nine Zero Lacquer June 2016, a lavender linear holographic with some silver holo glitter scattered throughout.  I know I’ve said this before, but this is my favorite finish of holo polish, and Nine Zero has an entire collection of them (2016: A Year In Review) so I find myself reaching for them pretty often. This was opaque in two coats; it dries a tiny bit gritty, so topcoat should smooth things out and make it shiny.

… Heck, my next post is going to have another Nine Zero holo from the same collection… whoops.
