I’ll Wear It, Even If It’s Out of Style: Dollish Polish “What’s This? What’s This?” Swatch

Now I know it’s not Halloween anymore (thank the high heavens), but that doesn’t mean that polishes I bought that were themed around Halloween aren’t cool anymore.  Plus, this polish could be considered Halloween or Christmas.  😉

So I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite Halloween/Christmas movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas.  I’m obsessed with Tim Burton films because they are dark and hilarious, and the art is just so inspiring.  When I found out that Dollish Polish had an entire collection centered around this movie, I literally jumped out of my seat.  However, on a college budget, I couldn’t afford to buy every single polish like I wanted to, or even a couple.

Then…one magical day, Dollish Polish announced on Facebook that she was selling her Halloween polishes at discounted polishes until they ran out.  I was at work at the time, but I hopped on Facebook and tried to add the one I had my eye on into my cart…of course, there were none left.  Just like I did with “Team Salvatore”, I kept trying to add it to my cart until finally, I GOT ONE!  Yes!

So here I have for you is Dollish Polish “What’s This?  What’s This?” over Pomegranate Nail Lacquer’s Velvet Lounge, one of my favorite purples ever!  This is a complete glitter bomb full of tons of different colors and shapes of glitters: white hexes, white bars, orange hexes, green hexes, black hexes, black micro-glitters, purple hexes, purple squares, and black square glitters!  WOW!

I have seen this polish over black, but there are black glitters in this polish that I really wanted to try and show!
It took a little bit of dabbing and placement, but it was absolutely worth it!  I got so many complements on this glitter and when I told them it was Nightmare Before Christmas Inspired, they all were not surprised!

Dollish Polish did a really good job of creating her polishes to be themed around The Nightmare Before Christmas, and she has definitely created some one-of-a-kind polishes that you will never find anywhere else.  I don’t believe that she is selling them anymore, but if you were lucky enough to get one I’m interested to see which is your favorite!  Do you love Tim Burton movies as much as I do?

What’s on your nails right now?  Will you continue to wear your favorite Halloween polishes far after the holiday?
I know I will!

Vampire Diaries and Glitterbombs

Happy hump day!  Ahh, Wednesdays – the halfway point of the race to finish the work week as quickly as possible.

I personally hate Wednesdays.  I used to love them (because I just like the word ‘wednesday’) but not they are the most busy day of my week.  I get to sleep in until anytime before 12:30 p.m., but then I have class from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. and then 4:00 p.m. to 10 p.m.  Then I have to do homework and get to bed as quickly as possible, because I have to wake up at 6:30 a.m. on Thursdays.  Boo.

On a side note, I am excited for this day to be over and tomorrow to be halfway over, because then I get to go home!  The season premiere of Vampire Diaries is on Thursday (YAY YAY YAY) and I’m going home to watch it with my sister.  Over the summer, we used our Netflix account to it’s full potential and caught up on several seasons of shows ranging from Breaking Bad to Gossip Girl, and luckily many of the shows are still on TV now and starting up again this fall!

I am OBSESSED with Vampire Diaries.  I love the story and the characters – and every episode breaks my heart and makes me want to keep watching.  So when I discovered that Dollish Polish sold a polish called “Team Salvatore” I rushed over to her website and placed an order without any hesitation.

First I’d like to note how healthy my naked nails are looking right now.  I’ve been using Sally Hansen’s Triple Strong and it is working wonders on my nails.  They rarely break, they are so strong, and the yellowish tint from wearing polish so often is disappearing!  I absolutely love it – it’s definitely my favorite.

I started off with a coat of one of my go-to fall polishes, OPI’s Black Cherry Chutney.  It is a dark, deep vampy red with a little bit of shimmer in the sun.  I chose it because it kind of looks black without being black, because there are black glitters in Team Salvatore and I wanted to try and show them off as much as possible.

Here is the beauty – Dollish Polish’s Team Salvatore.  I spent thirty minutes on her website clicking the “add to cart” button until I had two bottles in there, because it kept telling me that they were sold old.  I knew it wasn’t true, so I kept trying and my dreams came true!

A little bit closer up – there are fine silver glitters, small silver hexes, small red hexes, small black squares, and small red square glitters in here!  It is a mish-mash of vampiric colors that totally go along with the TV show.

Me taking pictures of my nails in three different environments: my room, the Alpha Phi house, and in class.
No big deal.

This polish is absolutely gorgeous.  I like how shimmery it is, and I love the red squares the most!  I want to try putting it over a white polish base, so that way you can see the black glitters too!  But…it’s fall and I’m trying to transition to dark colors, so I thought Black Cherry Chutney would be perfect.  🙂

How do you feel about this polish?  More importantly, are you Team Stefan or Team Damon?

TEAM DAMON ALL THE WAY!  😉
