Hello Lovely Ladies,
It is always nice to see a nail-polish blogger dive into creating their own line of nail polish because the line is sure to reflect their own ‘style’. White Owl Lacquers are created by Mara, whom I met within the blogging community; I don’t recall the specifics of how we first started to chat on Twitter… but I do know that we quickly discovered that we are TWINS when it comes to our love for soft pastel shades (soft corals specificlaly) ;). So when I heard that my nail-polish twin was creating a line of lacquers, I knew that I WOULD LOVE THEM ALL.
The Whit Owl Lacquers “After All This Time” collection is composed of SIX amazing shades!
I love them all so much that I will show them to you two at a time… (I have a hard time limiting my photos, and I really wanted to focus in-depth on each one of these pretties).
Today I have Basilic Venom and Moony to show you:
* Basilisk Venom *
* Moony *
Basilisk Venom is described by Mara as “Dark and mysterious, inspired by the deadliest of creatures. Black glitter with a touch of red, yellow, orange and copper in a clear shimmery base.”
(one coat of Basilisk Venom over OPI Berlin There, Done That)
Black glitter really has been quite trendy lately, and here you have a mixture of large and small solid black bits, against some pretty yellow, orange and red glistening bits. But what kicks this polish up a notch is the copper/gold soft shimmer in the clear jelly base. So subtle, but soooo pretty!!!!
Both the colors of the glitter in this one, and the OWL in the name of this indie brand had me reaching for Bundle Monster plate BM-309. I added some Cult Nails rhinestones to accent the accent nail 😉

Moony is described by Mara as “Don’t leave home in a full moon without it! Silver, gunmetal and black glitter in different sizes and shapes. Subtle in one coat, but buildable to “glitter bomb” category. I love it for an accent nail!”

We have seen our share of silver glitters, but Moony, with the addition of black glitter, takes silver glitter from cool to HOT!!! This baby sparkles with one thin coat and because of the clear jelly base it can be layered over ANY shade you wish!
My nail-polish twin Mara got this one RIGHT on! I absolutely love it and it will be a pretty accent to my silver jewelry pieces 😉

The White Owl Lacquers apply with great ease and the clear jelly base is VERY easy to spread evenly over the nail without glitter clumps. You may however want to store the bottles upside-down (which is what I have been doing with all of my indie bottles) to keep the glitter from sinking to the bottom of the bottle 😉
Both Basilisk Venom and Moony (as well as the other four shades in the “After All This Time” collection) can be purchased on the White Owl Lacquers online site HERE!
I will be showing you the other four shades within the next week or so.

Do you like getting to know the person/creator behind indie brands? Does that influence whether you will buy their polish or not?
Is there one of these two that stands out to you more?
THANK YOU FOR READING!
