Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Croquet

Nail polish inspired by Croquet scent from BPAL's Mad Tea Party collection (Alice in Wonderland anyone?). =)

Polish first, scents comes in later. =) I think I'm in love with this one. I've always appreciated nice barbie pink shades. And most important - it's creme! The application isn't as flawless as with Bordello, but the second coat evens it all out.
I never liked Alice in Wonderland story... I found it way to creepy (like clowns). Beetlejuice and vampires are OK... but no Alice for me please! But (!) I did do a research and this shade appears to be inspired by flamingos (and Croquet scent of course). I don't care, really. It's a nice shade and that's enough for me.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, Croquet, 2 coats

I appreciate my Crappy but when there's sunshine outside... Sorry, I gotta cheat on him a little. =) More outdoors photos for you today.

This one was shot in my Crappy...

... and these outdoors. I thought it would be cool to dip my fingers in snow. Yeah, it seemed like a cool idea at the moment... and then my fingers almost froze and fell off! Gotta think before act.

You can find this (and other BPAL nail polishes) on their site in the navigation bar under ''trading post''.

Thanks for looking!

    Ooo, I'm not usually a big pink fan but there's something about this one that I just love! So pretty!! Crappy's making me laugh :)

  2. This one is ok, but I really loved Mme Moriarty

  3. I think that the polish looks really cool wet, I wish that they could be kept that way!

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is beautiful!! Kind of reminds me of Zoya Sweet, but a little warmer. Gorgeous!

  5. Tudi meni ni bila nikoli vsec Alice nel paese delle meraviglie.. mislim v cudezni dezeli. Creepy shit!

    Tudi Dorothy v Ozu ali kako se ze klice mi ni bila nikoli vsec, do... filma!
    Ne vem kdaj je izsel, ampak ne more biti tako star, ker igra duplikat Katy Perry (ista je!!). Je ful psiholoski in se nisem mogla odlepit od ekrana, ampak se mi je mudilo na zurko uffff!! Ampak res, sedaj mi je postala ta zgodba vsec :).

    Alice pa.. bomo videli kaksen bo film.

  6. Gorgeous. I get all *squeek* when I see this color on others, but when I put it on, I feel like a giant candy bar. It is so pretty, and your really pull it off. The drop-pics was a good idea (for us to watch.) :D

  7. The things you do for art... LOL Gorgeous pics!

    I love the pictures with the water drops on your nails!
    The nail polish looks pretty too. I have looked at the website but when I put one nail polish in the basket it only showed US shipping. Do they ship international?

  9. I liked this from Polish Mayhem's swatch, but now I love it from yours.

    I love the shot with the water drops. I always like to look at my nails in the shower when the water would sit on top of them. It looks so cool.

  10. I didn't know that at the time...but they only send their polishes to US addresses. Maybe there's a US resident who could buy it for you and resend... Don't know what else to do.

  11. luv this! p.s. I can see your nails have grown back after these falsies, they look healthy now

    Oh your poor little frozen fingers! I keep picturing blue fingers with barbie pink nails. lol
    This color looks great on you.

  13. i love this color !!!

  14. This looks wonderful on you Sasha!
    I'm *still* trying to find my perfect (neutral to warm but not coral) medium pink. :(

  15. I like it on you, but find it too pink for me. Love the photo with watter drops. :)

    Aww. :( But maybe they will ship international at some point.
    Every nail polish brand should ship international. Nail polish addicted paws don't care about borders! :D

  17. Not entirely. =) Not yet.

  18. wow your nails look so cute in pink! adorable :)

  19. My hands are freezing as I type. My desk is by the patio door which leaks air like mad. I can't imagine sticking my hands in snow. Well maybe I could! Lovely pink on you. I've never used this brand. I love the Alice in Wonderland story. Very imaginative. I hope this movie does the book justice. I don't like clowns either.
