Misfits Manicure with Black Cat Lacquer's Static Age

This is my favorite manicure I've ever done! I was checking out Black Cat Lacquer's Etsy page and I saw a nail polish named after a Misfits song and I started geeking out. Static Age has various sizes and shapes of holographic, black and white glitter in a clear base.

I had been looking for an alternative to all the black and white indie glitters I see and this one is beautiful and applies with ease. I have two coats of Static Age over three coats of Butter London Disco Biscuit.

I decided I needed a little Crimson Ghost on my thumb. The nail is painted white first then I drew the design with a black nail art pen.

This was sad to take off! I highly recommend trying Static Age.  You can follow Black Cat Lacquer on facebook.  A new Clubbing Collection just came out and I will be posting a blog on a great Tetris polish soon.

Dollish Polish Super Mario Bros Part Two

Here are the next three colors I've swatched from the Dollish Polish Super Mario Bros collection: Toad-ally Awesome, A Peachy Princess and It's A Me, Mario!.

Two coats of Toad-ally Awesome over one coat of Nails Inc Heathrow and theBalm Hot Ticket That's Red-iculous tips 

Toad-ally Awesome has a clear base with matte white glitter in different shapes and sizes combined with yellow, blue and red glitters.  The formula was great and I was able to get a variety of glitters without having to hunt for them.  I wanted to mimic Toad's fleshtone and some of the red spots in his cap with the undercoats here.

Two coats of A Peachy Princess over two coats of China Glaze Sun-Kissed (As you can see my bottle reads "Preachy", but the Dollish Polish site does show "Peachy")

Above is with a matte topcoat

A Peachy Princess has a sheer pink base filled with tons of matte, holographic and metallic pink glitters in lots of different sizes and hues.  I put it over the yellow to reflect Peach's hair.  I love pink glitters and this is one of my favorites in the collection.

 Two coats of It's A Me, Mario! over two coats of Sally Hansen White On

It's A Me Mario has red and blue glitters in different shapes and sizes and holographic stars.  I generally am not a fan of glitter combinations that have stars, hearts or flowers in them, but I wish there were more stars in this polish!  So far that is my only complaint with the collection.  I only fished out one for this manicure.  It's so Nintendo to have the stars so they work great with this and the Luigi polish that you will see soon in the final installment of my Super Mario Bros swatches.

Here is Part One of the Super Mario Bros review with more Dollish Polish information for following and purchasing.
