Octopus Party Nail Lacquer : Arctis Tor


Guys, I am the legit worst. I took a wee break and then got out of the habit of swatching and editing and posting and then I started a new position at work and said position is INSANELY BUSY (but I'm really enjoying it) and..... that's all I got. My husband calls it "Courtney's Book of Excuses" and, man, I have got a ton of them.

Anywho, late last year Dave of OPNL released many glorious winter duo collaborations and I ordered several. I waited and stalked and waited some more. Dave and I chatted. We both fretted about the status of my parcel and, after a month of hoping, we gave up. He scrounged together what he could of what was left over and sent me a new parcel along with Arctis Tor which he asked if I could review. Uhhhh, yeah I can. Have you *seen* swatches of that thing? It's glorious! So, I got that package in record time, I drooled over the pretties, took pictures, sent Dave a sample and then.... I think you can see where this is going.

So, Dave, I am officially throwing myself on your mercy. You can send your horrid weather westward (actually, please don't) or strike me from your friends list. But, better late than never, right? Right? RIGHT?! ;) i<3udave

On to the swatches!

The formula on this is stellar. No issues to report and I got amazing opacity with two coats. This polish has amazing purple flakes that are super tough to capture on camera but I think the macros did a decent job. What think you?

Shown here is two coats with top coat.
