Back to the real reason you're here, the polish! Back in July, Erin from Black Sheep Lacquer ran a contest where people got to come up with their own idea for a polish and the winner got their polish made and a complimentary bottle. I believe two or three people were chosen and one of them was my idea for a polish based off of Hermoine from Harry Potter. Harry always gets the spotlight and I wanted to feature Hermoine for a change. I grew up reading Harry Potter and it has stuck with me ever since. I've always had a soft spot for the bookish Hermoine, mostly because I was obsessed with reading as a kid and still love to read to this day.
Here is my idea for this polish, actually taken from the original email that I sent to Erin:
It's inspired by Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. It's a mix of brown (for her hair), maroon (for Gryffindor), black (for her robes), and micro glitters in browns and tans to represent books.
She also added a splash of gold and copper, which I think was perfect. I really loved how this polish turned out, and even more proud that it came from my idea. I layered one easy coat over Zoya Jacqueline.
Below is a macro of all the glitter components. You'll see my swatch doesn't have the large black glitters. I didn't actually realize they were there until I was editing this picture. I don't anticipate any problems getting them out in the future, I'll just turn the bottle upside down for about five minutes before I use it.
So what do you think of this polish creation? Is it something you would wear? I know that I absolutely love it and I want to thank Erin again for creating this polish.
This polish retails for $10.00 for a full-sized polish and can be found on Etsy here.
