Today, for your viewing joy, I have a new polish from Paint Shop Polish called Wolf Boy*. It is from her upcoming collection, Vampire Diaries. Candi (the lovely lady behind Paint Shop Polish) asked me to do some nail art with her polishes, so here we go!
First off, Wolf Boy. This polish is a heady mixture of gold, copper, and brown glitters (bar glitter, large and small hexes, holographic moons, and best of all large golden squares!) in a clear base. I chose to layer it over a medium purple, to bring out all the colors.
Wolf Boy went on fairly well in two coats. I did have to dig a little to get at the squares, but it was worth it! All the other glitters came out easily. The base is a bit thick, but was surprisingly easy to work with (with the dab and spread method) given the amount of glitter. The polish dried quickly, and only needed one layer of top coat to lie smooth.
I just freehanded a V-shape into most of my nails with a sparkly border (my accent nail also got some striping tape) and decided to call it a night. The polish is so varied that adding anything else would have been insane! My boyfriend ended up grabbing my hand and staring at it when I was done, assuring me that it looked like a “golden widow into chaos” and opening a discussion on entropy and the expanding universe. I love science (I know, not relevant!) But anyway, that is how this post got its name 🙂
- Purple: Zoya – Malia
- Chunky gold glitter: Paint Shop Polish – Wolf Boy
- Copper: Pure Ice – Magic
- Fine gold glitter: Zoya – Faye
Wolf Boy can be purchased from Paint Shop Polish for $4 for a mini bottle (what I have shown in the photo) or $8 for a full-size bottle. If you are in the mood for some shiny crazy fun, this is a good polish to go for! Did I mention SQUARE GLITTERS?
