First off... happy birthday to me! I am turning 39 for the very first time this year (because I will not be going through the door marked "40"), so that's pretty momentous. I'll be giving you a recap of the birthday festivities on Monday, but today is all about the swatching. Last fall, I bought several of Octopus Party Nail Lacquer's Halloween line, and I've already swatched all the full-size bottles I bought, but I also grabbed some minis because I wasn't sure if I would love them or not. Unfortunately they've been sitting in my untrieds for 6 months now, so I figured it was time to show a little love. The first one I have to show you is Witches Get Stitches.
Witches Get Stitches is a fuchsia-leaning purple with red and purple glitters (maybe some blue?), gold shimmer and some kind of holo sparkle. It's really quite lovely with a lot of depth and a bit of magic bottled inside. These swatches all show 3 coats, no top coat.
Application was a bit on the thick side compared to other polishes I've tried from Dave, but that may just be because it's been sitting for 6 months. It was very workable and even the first coat went on pretty smoothly. It dries to a fairly glossy, slightly bumpy finish, but top coat will smooth it out.
It's actually pretty well-packed with gold shimmer that I had the hardest time photographing, unfortunately, but thankfully I was able to capture the flashes of holo microglitter/shimmer throughout. Unfortunately none of my macros came out, so sad panda is me. If you dig this jelly like I dig this jelly, come back on Wednesday to see what I did with it!
Hope you're all enjoying your Easter weekend (and maybe tipping a glass back in honor of my birthday - tag me on social media in a pic if you are!)! I'll see you Monday!
