Octopus Party Nail Lacquer X Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Nordic Winter Duo

Two of my favorite indie polish makers, Octopus Party Nail Lacquer and Carpe Noctem Cosmetics, doing a collaboration duo? With holo? And flakies? I die. These are a couple of the best polishes I have from either brand and they are releasing on 11/26 at 1PM EST in the Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Etsy shop.

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Death + Taxes

Octopus Part Nail Lacquer Death + Taxes is a special edition polish launching on 11/30 at 1PM EST. Dave, the maker, and I have joked about our inevitable dread of accounting and taxes, so perhaps we fear Big Brother more that death itself. Since both are unavoidable, one might as well go out in style with holo on your tips, right? This version of death and taxes comes with a bonus, however, in the form of two nail jewels from Daily Charme, a triple spike and a skull. Check out more details after the break...

Marbles For Polish Legend Of Zelda Collection

Marbles For Polish is coming out with a quartet of new colors on November 14 and this time they are dedicated to the Legend Of Zelda. Sadly I never played the game as a kid (if it didn't come free on our family Macintosh, I was out of luck), but was certainly aware of it from my game-playing friends. Here Shannon has gotten her inspiration from the Triforce for the names and colors of the polishes. They are her signature, glowing but delicate linear holos. Nothing in-your-face, here. The holo seems to light up the base color and amplify it rather than graying it out. Lovely!  I bought these a while back when Shannon first put them into testing so I'm excited to finally be able to share! Check them out after the break...
