Today I have an old indie polish to share with you. Now, I say old because it’s hardly a new release or anything. In fact, it’s in the old style bottles! I acquired this recently along with some of the other Super Mario Collection polishes by Dollish Polish.
This one is called The Koopa King and is a clear base, with a yellow gold microglitter, yellow gold bigger hex glitter, red hex, green hex, black bars and larger silver holo diamonds.
I love Dollish Polish, it was one of the first indie brands I got into as a baby nail polish addict. Unfortunately time (and funds, let’s be real) is no longer on my side and with an increased work load and social life, I don’t have as much time as I used to have to keep up with the fantastic nail blogs out there and the new collections (and brands!) coming out.
I’m not a huge gamer but I am partial to go a at Super Mario from time to time. I got The Koopa King polish along with about twelve others and whilst unwrapping them all, I was exclaiming, oohing and ahhing over each and every one. This particular one caught someone’s eye and lo and behold it’s on my nails now.
After a quick google search, I found that most people have swatched this over either a black or a yellow. Yellow doesn’t suit me (well I just haven’t found the right one) and I didn’t want to do just plain old black so I went with two coats of OPI Incognito on Sausalito with a coat of The Koopa King layered over it. I think the result is stunning!
Tell me polish addicts – which indie collections have I missed out on? What are your favourite brands?
Love and glitter
