'Allo! Today is Friday so that means it is TGIF: Thank Goodness,
I hope you all know either by the name of the polish or by the cute/freaky worm guy what movie this is inspired by..........Labyrinth! Ah-yeah! Jim Henson creatures and David Bowie (in tights!)! What's not to like!? The little worm guy is one of my favorite characters from the movie so I figured I would count him as an animal! :)
I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (two coats) as my base for my first two nails. I then used acrylic paints to draw him. I dipped my nails into blue flocking powder to create his fuzziness! How perfect! :) Next we have The Lady Varnishes: Castle Beyond the Goblin City (one coat) over China Glaze Concrete Catwalk and HK Girl Top Coat. And finally we have three coats of Castle Beyond the Goblin City with HK Girl Top Coat.
This was before I put on the 'Allo and the HK Girl Top Coat. As you can see, Castle Beyond the Goblin City dries a bit plastic looking. The truth beauty of it shines through with a top coat.
The Lady Varnishes: Castle Beyond the Goblin City is a grey jelly with green micro glitter and iridescent and grey hex glitter. I have come to find out that a lot of polishes from The Lady Varnishes are thicker, this one is. So I bought my first polish thinner from Sallys and added some. It made the the application normal. So, yes it is thick, but it can be fixed! Yes! Which is fab because I love this polish and she has so many other awesome looking ones!
