Another day, another swatch! This blogging from Starbucks thing is really working for me! I don’t know why I didn’t think to do this sooner. For today’s swatch, I have Bee’s Knees Lacquer‘s Don’t Open Dead Inside, which is another Indie Shop Atlanta event exclusive. I’m wearing three coats with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.
Don’t Open Dead Inside is a cool-toned brown polish with a strong green-to-gold shifting shimmer, iridescent flakies, and a smattering of holo. Application was great with this polish; I had an opaque first coat, and only used additional coats because I like the thickness of it. The polish dries with a glossy finish; I used top coat for shine and protection.
I have to say, I really dig this polish. I love the zombie-chic aesthetic it goes for, because it does it really well. It’s something unique in my collection; I don’t have anything like this. I also appreciate the kitchen sink approach to this polish, and this applies to all of the Bee’s Knees Atlanta exclusives; they’re so multi-faceted and complex. Zombie nails never looked so good!
Don’t Open Dead Inside was an Indie Shop Atlanta event exclusive; other Bee’s Knees Lacquers are sold on their website.
I like this kind of gray. Very pretty indeed
This is gorgeous and totally my kind of colour no matter what time of year!
This is so unusual. I see mostly green in the base with all those beautiful shimmers.
It looks like a combo of green and gray to me.
Haha I use that sign all the time in my marketing examples because I read it the same way you do. Neat polish! I hadn’t really seen a good zombie polish in awhile and this really was a great look, even with the kitchen sink thrown in!
The green shimmer is amazing. I plan to pick up a few from this brand at indie expo.
Haha I read it that way too! The brain automatically sees from left to right LOL. I love the green shimmer and the flakies in this polish.
That label! LOL! Its a pretty polish!
The iridescent goalies in this really bring it to life. I like.
Those iridescent flakes are everything!!! I love it!!
Beautiful swatch and polish. Also, I have a Starbucks near by and it never occurred to me to blog from there. I may give it a try!
