I have decided to split the box into two posts, my reason being that completely coincidentally two of the polishes this month mesh so well together, although it is not exclusively the only way you want to go with it. Pure case of serendipity, that’s all. Plus, I can show you more photo’s this way, everybody wins!

For tonight’s post I am going to show you the Peita’s Polish and the Lilypad Lacquer.

Lilypad’s Superheroes and Villians creation is entitled, “Names Hades, Lord of the Dead, how ya doin?”. That name is way to long for me, so let’s call it Hades for right now. Based on Disney’s Hercules bad guy, Lilypad Lacquer has definitely got the colouring a match to the onscreen lord. I’m not sure if the inspiration for this polish had some ‘good’ about him, but this polish portrays a feel of lightness and air, and guess what, I don’t even care if it doesn’t match the dark under lord of death precisely, because its so darn beautiful.

Hades is a lovely creamy blue, opaque in two even coats. The polish has two hidden effects, a stunning blue glassfleck shimmer, and a subtle warm holo effect. The shimmer was quite prominent for my camera, however I found the holo quite hard to capture, but it’s definitely there.

Next up, from Peita’s Polish, is “Keep Calm I’m Wonder Woman”, based on *surprise* Wonder Woman. I LOVE this topper. It is like Peita put Wonder Woman’s outfit into a blender, added polish base, and bottled it. It feels so American-y, and patriotic too.

The base is clear, and packed with red, blue, silver and gold square and hex glitters. It also has stars, a necessity for Wonder Woman, and a generous dusting of tiny white micro glitters and holo shimmer. The viscosity of the polish was perfect, it applied so easily, and the glitters came out of the bottle with ease, and in a plentiful manner. I didn’t have to spread any of them around the nail, they just seemed to go right where they were wanted, even the stars.

I swatched two thin coats over a grey base, which I loved the combination of. I thought I’d add a black feature nail with the topper, but I didn’t like the look of it at all on the black. I think the base was too harsh for the micro white glitters and holo dust. My favourite two looks so far with this topper are over the grey, and over the Lilypad from the box. Id love to try it over a white too, I just didn’t want to ‘lose’ the tiny white glitters for my photos.
