Danglefoot Nail Polish OUAT Duo - 'Swan' & 'Hook'

Hello! Today I have a very exciting post for you. Hayley over at Danglefoot Nail Polish has started a new monthly polish series. Each month she is going to collaborate with a blogger/swatcher to create a limited duo inspired by TV series Once Upon A Time. This months is based on Emma Swan and Captain Hook, and was created with Kirsty from FairyTales Nails. Read on for swatches and more info!

Before I start, I love Once Upon A Time! I was a bit late to the game, and was on season four when I started all over again with my boyfriend. In case someone else is like me and isn't caught up, I won't include any spoilers!

'Swan', inspired by Emma Swan's signature red jacket, is a red holographic with gold flakes. The formula on this was perfect - it was smooth and easy to apply and a definite one coater. This looks amazing on the nail, even better than I had expected. Below is just one coat and topcoat.

'Hook', inspired by Captain Hook's bright blue eyes, is a linear blue holographic with silver flakes. This has a similar formula to 'Swan' and is almost opaque in one coat, although I did add a second. In a rush you could easily get away with one thicker coat. Again I was caught off guard with how good this looks! Below is two coats and topcoat.

What do you think? I am completely in love with both of these! They are just perfect for Swan & Hook. If for whatever reason you missed this duo, you're in luck! Just this once Hayley will be making a second batch, hopefully releasing alongside next months duo - which I believe is Snow & Charming in collaboration with Sailor Nails.

You can find Danglefoot polish on etsy here, and on Instagram here.

Hope to see you in the next post!
