What Kind of Party? Collection!

I'm a huge Buffy fan. Probably my favorite series ever. The inspiration behind the collection is a scene from an episode from season three, Dead Man's Party. 

Oz: "We should figure out what kinda deal this is. I mean, is it a gathering, a shindig, or a hootenanny?"

Cordelia: "What's the difference?"

Oz: "Well, a gathering is brie, mellow song stylings..."

Silver and aqua shimmer and iridescent micro glitter in a clear base. For those occasions where you want a little something extra but not over the top!

Oz: "...shindig: dip, less mellow song stylings, perhaps a large amount of malt beverage..."

Gold and white squares, tiny gold bars, and gold shimmer in a clear base. Stepping up the glitz just a notch!

Oz: "...hootenanny, well, it's chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny."

Did somebody say party?? Mostly gunmetal glitter with multiple colors of regular and holo glitters in the mix! This is a full-coverage glitter, but also looks great layered. PERFECT New Year's Eve party polish!

In the first four swatches I'm wearing two coats of Hootenanny (one thin, one medium-to-heavy) and two coats of topcoat. In the last pic I have one coat layered (index to pinkie) over A-England Bridal Veil (black holo), Zoya Tao (blue-gray frost), Nicole by OPI Positive Energy (silver metallic), and Chanel Distraction (white frost).

All polishes in the collection are $8/bottle. 

Thanks for looking!

  1. Ahh!! I saw this collection being reviewed on another blog and just had to find you, the creator, to confirm - I just knew this was homage to Oz as soon as I saw the names of the polishes. Excellent! Buffy foreverrr! ^^

  2. Yay! I'm glad someone got the reference...love Buffy!
