Octopus Party Nail Lacquer Spring Preview

Monday, March 03, 2014

It is my pleasure to bring you another review from the Octopus Party Nail Lacquer nail line. Today's review includes a few colors from the Spring collection.

Twice As Ice



Twice As Ice is a light blue, non-linear holo. Shown above is two coats with no base color. This appears more silver with typical house lighting or under overcast skies. If you are able to stand under a halogen light or find sunlight in your area the holo effect really pops and brings out the subtle blue. I haven't had the opportunity to try to stamp with this, but based on the consistency, I think it would stamp nicely.

Polishes used: Octopus Party Nail Lacquer- Twice As Ice, Revlon- Quick Dry Top Coat

Peach Buzz



Peach Buzz is a super light peach cream. It looks off-white when worn alone, but appears more peach-like when topped with a glitter in the pink family. Shown above is two coats with no base color. I was rather surprised at how evenly this applied. I don't own a single nude, white or off white that applies smoothly and dries completely. This would be an excellent choice if you need a more professional looking color.

Sex With My Ex



Sex With My Ex is a pink and black holo glitter topper. Shown above is one coat over Peach Buzz. The application was smooth, but I had difficulty getting the larger black glitters out of the bottle. It wasn't impossible, but I did have to hunt for them. While the name is quirky, I feel like it didn't really suit this color. I feel like a color named "Sex With My Ex" should be more of a dirty, sexy color rather than one that contains several shades of pink. Regardless of the name, I like the color composition. I wore it over Peach Buzz, which does a nice job of showing off the glitter, but I personally think it would look gorgeous over a gray.

I was pleased with the composition of each color I reviewed. Peach Buzz was the front runner for me because of its consistency and dry time. While I enjoyed the color, I didn't feel as though Sex With My Ex accurately portrayed the thoughts/feelings that go along with the name.

  1. Great shades here! I really like Twice as Ice since I have a weak spot for holographic colors.

  2. Twice as Ice is super pretty! I really appreciate your swatches - I feel like I can buy something based off of them and have it actually look like yours look in the post. I love Sex With My Ex but agree, if I were to guess sight-unseen on what a color with that name would look like, it'd be a dark burgundy holo. Definitely not a glitter topper! Still pretty though.
