Who knows what tonight is?!?! That’s right, the premiere of The Vampire Diaries! Woo hoo!
So it’s only appropriate to bust out Dollish Polish Team Salvatore, an indie polish inspired by the show. In case you missed my supernatural nails post from the 30-Day Challenge where I professed my love for all things vampire, here’s my vampire-themed manicure from last month.
If for some reason you don’t watch, then all you need to know is that it’s a show full of beautiful people, nearly all of whom are either vampires, witches, werewolves or somehow otherwise touched by the supernatural. It focuses on a love triangle between a girl (maybe now a vampire?) and two vampire brothers whose last name is Salvatore. Hence, Team Salvatore — why should we have to choose? (But who’s kidding who: Damon, Damon, Damon.)
Back to the polish, I bought it back in August but have been saving it for today. It’s got a mix of red, black and silver glitter, some square, some hex, some micro, all in a clear base. Honestly it’s not a polish that I was in love with from bottle shots and swatches, but I really wanted it anyway. But seeing it now on my nails, I really love it.
I saw a lot of swatches of it over black and over red, and some over white. I considered gray, which I still think would look great, but at the last minute, my bottle of A-England Morgan Le Fay called to me. I liked the idea of using white but not having to deal with annoying white polish application problems. A-England goes on like a dream, plus Morgan Le Fay has a beautiful shimmer that I thought would complement the glitter.
So this is two coats of A-England Morgan Le Fay, and then two coats of Dollish Polish Team Salvatore. I topped it off with one coat of Gelous to help smooth out the glitter and then one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat.
Dollish Polish is available via Dolly’s store on Big Cartel.
Hope you like this manicure, and go Team Salvatore!
