Octopus's Garden






"I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade."
(The Beatles - Octopus's Garden)





Octopus's Garden (Imagine Collection) is, as a lot of Enchanted Polish are, a multichrome scattered holo. It changes from a deep indigo over purple and dark pink to a orange-y red in extreme angles. I used three coats for opacity and had no issues with application.

For my accent nail I used a technique I've been admiring for a long time now, but never tried it before: water marbeling. I used Octopus's Garden and a England Camelot for the black marbeling pattern. My first try didn't end up very good, I had some huge bubbles in it, that's why I added a picture of my "Cinderella" ring finger, where I took the second attempt, that turned out a little better :-)

    1. Thank you so much, Christine. I miss the days' when EP were sold in the round bottle, you could put 4 polishes in your cart and actually check out with 4 bottles. Today you're lucky if the stock lasts for tree seconds instead of 1.5...
