Guest Post time! Take it away, Natalie, from There is Beauty in Colour!
Hello everyone,For this guest post on Polish All the Nails (yay Canadian blog!), I thought I'd choose an amazing indie glitter polish that has been sitting in my drawer for a few weeks now - Dollish Polish Scarab. Chartreuse, turquoise, black, brown, and blue small and medium hex glitters blend beautifully in a clear base. The many colours in this polish make it versatile, as it can match and contrast many colours of underwear. I decided to wear it by itself, which was probably not the best idea. I started out with three coats and one coat of Nubar Diamont and it looked fine to me, but in the bright sunlight, you could see a few bald patches here and there. I then painted on a fourth coat of Scarab and one more of Diamont ~ 6 coats!! Needless to say, the polish on my left index finger chipped off in one sheet (!) a few hours later. Oh well, it was beautiful while it lasted. Turquoise, green (especially the shade chartreuse) and brown are my favourite colours, so the short-lived mani was well worth it.
Application was what you would expect from a well-made glitter bomb ~ a bit of glitter placement here and there, but mostly, normal brushstrokes sufficed.
I bought Scarab when Dollish Polish was still available at her Etsy shop. I believe it was $8.75 USD. It is part of the Valley of the Kings collection, which, unfortunately, I believe, is slated for Dolly's 'acetone vault', i.e. she is going to stop making them (or already has).
A quick look at Dolly's new shop shows that all her polishes are sold out. However, the Valley of the Kings collection is still listed, so perhaps she may stock it a few more times before officially retiring it.
If I've incited a new lemming for anyone, good luck in your Scarab search!
Thanks Natalie, looks amazing!
