Twinsie Tuesdays: Fierce Frankens Amandalandish

After a few weeks of torturous Twinsie Tuesdays, I'm back with something I looove.


And I should, since today's challenge is our favorite polish.  Under normal circumstances, I struggle with this question.  I have a love affair with OPI DS Extravagance and a weakness for red polishes, but in the end, I knew the right polish for this week.


As I'm sure a number of you know, Nory from Fierce Makeup and Nails has become a really close friend.  I won't get all flubbery on you, but I can tell you how beyond touched I was when she texted to let me know that she had created a polish named after me.  Her Fierce Frankens (buy them here!) are gorgeous polishes that balance girliness and edginess in a way that I personally love.  In Amandalandish, the polish she created for me, Nory captured those aspects just as beautifully.


Amandalandish is a thick buttery royal purple creme that is flushed with silver flakie shimmer.  Since purple is my favorite color and shimmer-cremes are my favorite finish, clearly I adore this color already.  Beyond that though, this polish is just magical.  The base color is so rich, it makes the flakie shimmer look like stars in some ethereal, purple sky.  Funnily enough, I was just thinking the other day that all my polishes that have this quality are blues (Essie Smooth Sailing, Milani Beach Front) and I can happily say that Amandalandish is purple's answer to these amazing finishes that blues seem to dominate.


This is 3 coats.



Even from the bottle shot, you can see how present the flakie shimmer is.  Thankfully that translated exactly as it looks on the nail and one of the many reasons I love this so much.


While I still have a hard time naming a favorite polish, I can honestly say that Amandalandish is the polish that means the most to me.  The thought that went into this is clear from how well it represents me and what I love.  Plus, how many girls can say they have a polish named after them?  (Scrangie, if you're miraculously reading this, please don't answer.)


It goes without saying that I'm eternally grateful to Nory for such a beautiful polish.
