Before I get started on today's polish, I have something really important to say: Alzheimer's is real and is no joke. (If you haven't watched Seth Rogen's bit on this disease, please watch as he says it in a way that be understood how drastic and scary it is.) It affected my family in a way that I cannot even scrape the surface on without getting too emotional. Raphaelle from Digital Nails is currently raising funds to bring awareness and research to hopefully find an end to this disease. As an incentive, she is creating a custom nail polish to those who donate $35+ and send her an email (raphyax at gmail dot com) or show her the screenshot of the donation. (Although, fellow Canadians, we will have to chip in for shipping, mmmmkay?) You can donate here. Two days left! That's really awesome - go Raphaelle!!!!
OK onto today's polish - we are continuing the week with Bliss Polish and today I have Velvet Rope. (Remember, you can visit the shop here. You can also follow Bliss Polish on their Facebook page for more updates.
Now Velvet Rope is a little more different from the jellies I've been highlighting this week... Let's see if you can spot the difference!
From Bliss Polish: "A vivid purple with various flakies."
Well if you didn't spot the difference - this one is different because it has little flakes rather than a glitter mix. It's still a really lovely jelly. Perfect on its own or as an undie! Application was great and it had a nice natural shine to it too. Here's my swatch in two coats:
And for funsies, I added some Finger Paints Twisted on top. Kind of reminds me of one of my unicorns - Cult Nails Unicorn Puke / Clarivoyant - but not quite. Still might do the trick in the meantime!
Really love Velvet Rope, especially with the rainbow flakes of Finger Paints Twisted! I can definitely see this polish used as an all-season - could be fitting for summers as well as the winter!
What do you think of Bliss Polish Velvet Rope? Do you think I did an OK job at emulating the infamous Unicorn Puke?
