Nail Pattern Boldness: Slow Invasion
I decided to try Slow Invasion first. If you watch Doctor Who, you'll know that the Slow Invasion was a gradual invasion of Earth by the Shakri cubes, through which the Shakri intended to kill all humans on Earth. Fortunately, the Doctor saved the day, but I mention this because all the glitter in the nail polish Slow Invasion is - yep, you guessed it - square shaped like the cubes. Pretty clever, huh? Not only that, it's an awesome polish in its own right. I did a gradient over Revlon Royal, but you can get an idea of the dusty, teal color of Slow Invasion's base from the bottle shot above and to the left.
I absolutely love this polish! It has greenish yellow, blue, teal, orange, green, and purple square glitter, which all comes together to form a fantastic glitterfest. I realized after I took these pictures that some of the orange glitter looked more red than it actually was, which is because I was wearing a bright red shirt that day. Oops, sorry. Anyway, I love Slow Invasion and I can't wait to try it again!
P.S. If you watch Doctor Who and haven't seen the latest episode, go now! It's definitely in my top five favorite episodes, maybe top three. I kid you not. Go.
