Night Owl Lacquer August Polish Pickup (Old Hollywood)



 

Today I will be sharing swatches and review of Night Owl Lacquer August Polish Pickup (Old Hollywood). I had the honor of swatching an amazing polish inspired by an amazing woman.
This month's theme for Polish Pickup is Old Hollywood and Night Owl Lacquer has chosen to pull inspiration from the iconic Katharine Hepburn. 

❤ Press Sample ❤

Night Owl Lacquer August Polish Pickup (Old Hollywood)




Lindsay of Night Owl Lacquer chose Katharine Hepburn as her inspiration because she was a strong & outspoken woman that refused to conform to what was expected of females in her time.  She wasn't the typical glamorous classic Hollywood actress and still holds the record for the most Oscar wins (4) in Academy Awards history.  In 1999 she was named by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema.

Let's see the swatches of this purple goddess.

'Fierce and Feisty'




Fierce & Feisty  is described as a deep plum purple linear holographic polish with copper shimmer and reddish pink iridescent flakies. This polish is so deep and gorgeous. The formula on this was amazing and nicely pigmented to where I could have even, dare I say, got away with just one easy coat. The cleanup around my nails was a breeze as well. Swatch shown in 2 coats plus glossy top coat.



Isn't she amazing? Night Owl Lacquer August Polish Pickup (Old Hollywood) 'Fierce and Feisty' will be priced at $10.50 and will release on August 4th at 11 AM EST through August 7th on the Polish Pickup website.



Cast A Spell Collaboration Box




Seven amazing makers bring you a magical Harry Potter inspired Box in Celebration of a special birthday!

❤ Press Sample ❤

That's right! We are celebrating the amazing Harry Potter's birthday indie style. Seven incredibly talented makers got together to make this fantastic box full of goodies. Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer, Cupcake Polish, Night Owl Lacquer, Stached Polish, Nvr Enuff Polish, Ribbits Stickits, and Lilly Anne's Garden all took part in this amazing collaboration. Each polish is named and inspired by a spell from the series.

I know you are all anxious to see these up close and personal so let's get to the swatches.

'Fianto Duri'


★ a charm that was created to be combined with protective spells ★


Fianto Duri is Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer's contribution and is described as an icy blue crelly with fine green shimmer and medium copper shimmer. This is a lovely soft subtle shade perfect for any occasion. The formula had a slight problem with leveling, but by that third coat, everything was perfectly even and leveled.
Swatch shown in 3 coats plus glossy top coat.
Let's take a look at some more angles of this delicate beauty.





'Expecto Patronum'


★ Used for protection or even to send a message, a fully formed Patronus will take the shape of an animal or magical creature and act as a shield against dark magic, specifically Dementors. ★


Expecto Patronum is Cupcake Polish's contribution and is described as an almost denim blue color holo with heavy silver shimmers and silver flakies. The holo in this is gorgeous and I love those almost reflective sterling silver flakes against the blue. The formula was fantastic and applied nice and smooth. Swatch shown in 2 coats plus glossy top coat. 



'Legilimens'


★ A Legilimens, one proficient in the art of Legilimency, can absorb emotions, feelings, thoughts, memories, and analyze them to figure out what a person is thinking. ★



Legilimens is Night Owl Lacquer's contribution and is described as a dark purple with chameleon shimmer that shifts red/violet/blue, silver holo shreds and crystal rainbow flakies. This polish is squishy jelly perfection. Formula was smooth and on the thinner side, but built up quick. Swatch shown in 3 thin coats plus glossy top coat. 



'Avada Kedavra'


★ Known as the killing curse is a tool of the Dark Arts and one of the three Unforgivable Curses. It is one of the most powerful and sinister spells known to wizardkind ★


Avada Kedavra is Stached Polish's contribution and I describe this as an olive green holo base with gold glitters throughout. This olive is so perfect and deep and that gold sparkle really makes this a must have. This is my first time trying Stached Polish and I have to say the formula was pretty impressive. The formula was smooth, easy to apply, and very pigmented. Even though this is a deep pigmented shade, the cleanup was a breeze. Swatch shown in 2 coats plus glossy top coat.




'Sectumsempra'


 ★ a curse invented by Professor Severus Snape, during his childhood, when he was known as "The Half-Blood Prince". He created it with the intention of using it against his enemies, likely including the Marauders and it became one of his specialties ★


Sectumsempra is Nvr Enuff Polish's contribution and is described as a blood red holo with red sparkle and a red shift! This is the perfect shade of red and I'm loving that holo sparkle throughout. The formula on this was fantastic and applied like a dream thanks to their signature brush. Swatch shown in 2 coats plus glossy top coat.




We aren't done just yet so hang in there. Now we move onto the goodies!

'Ribbits Stickits'


The lovely Kristi of Ribbits Stickits has contributed some awesome water slide decals for this box. Silly me didn't photograph the decal sheet before cutting from it, but it's full of a huge variety of Harry Potter characters, spells, and sayings. She even included a logo water slide decal for each maker..so cute! 


I think this might be my very first time using water slide decals. These are great and they did exactly what they were supposed to do. I cut the design I wanted, placed the decal into water for 5-10 seconds and the image slid right off the backing. I then placed the image on my nail let dry for a few seconds and apply a glossy top coat. These decals showed up best over a plain white polish.

Ribbits Stickits also included a vinyl sticker, but I'll let that be a little surprise for you. There will be 5 different vinyls total so the one you get may not be the one that others get.

'Lilly Anne's Garden'


Misty of Lilly Anne's Garden also contributed with an amazingly yummy butter beer scented cuticle oil. I was so excited to see this in the box since my other Lilly Anne's Garden cuticle oil was running extremely low. The cuticle oils are extremely moisturizing, soak in really fast, and don't feel too greasy like some others tend to do. I can't recommend their oils enough. Let's take a look at my naked nails after the oil sinks in.


Phew! Now wasn't that an epic box? It's a little overwhelming at how amazing this entire box really is.

This box releases next Monday 7/31 (Harry Potter's Birthday) at 1PM MDT
The box is priced at $53 + shipping at
