Mckfresh Nail Attire: Part 2

Today I have 2 more polishes from Mckfresh Nail Attire's Labyrinth-inspired collection to show you. If you missed part 1 you can read it here.

'The Fireys'

The Fireys are the main reason I said that I'm glad that I never saw this movie as a child. Even seeing it as an adult was disturbing. For anyone who hasn't seen the movie, the only way that you'll truly understand the creepiness of these muppets is to watch the scene in which they appear in the movie. Just wait until they start dismembering themselves (in a 'child-friendly' manner of course)...

Mckresh's 'The Fireys' stays true to character (without the dismemberment of course), consisting of a pastel orange base with gold, red and white glitters of different shapes and sizes. This one will reach opacity on it's own, but you know how I love to layer things so I've layered two coats of 'The Fireys' over OPI 'Are We There Yet?'. Application was smooth with no fishing or glitter placement required.

'Sir Didymus'

In the movie, Sir Didymus is a fox (from what I can gather anyway) who believes he is a great and chivalrous knight. He rides a sheepdog named Ambrosius, and has the job of guarding the bridge that crosses over The Bog of Eternal Stench (and yes, Mckfresh also has polishes for Ambrosius and TBOES).

Sir Didymus

The 'Sir Didymus' polish captures his colourful character perfectly. It consists of small rainbow glitters and small white squares representing the emblems on his vest, and white bar glitters to represent his moustache in a clear base. The obvious layering option for this one is black, and while I played around with different combinations it really does look best over a darker colour. Instead of going for a straight black I've layered one coat over OPI 'Light My Sapphire', which is a shimmery almost-black navy. As you can see, this one is absolutely packed with glitter, and while I struggled a bit with glitter placement due to the mini brush (I really recommend buying a full size bottle of this one) it was workable and the bar glitters were very well behaved.

Mckfresh polishes are available from their etsy store for $5.50 for a 6ml mini bottle, or $10 for a full sized 12ml bottle. Unfortunately due to strict shipping laws Mckfresh polishes are only available within Australia at this time (sorry international ladies!). To stay up to date you can follow the facebook page.
