Nailventurous Swamp Princess

I'm taking it back, old school. When indies started exploding in 2012, Nailventurous was one of the top show runners in the indie game. Remember the days of Etsy refreshing and cartjacking (before people discovered Big Cartel). I was lucky enough to know the maker of the infamous Floam (which has been copied to death) and was able to set up a swap for some of the most amazing polishes. I had been holding off wearing this one, because I didn't want to admit that I will have no more new Nailventurous polishes to try, but it's just too pretty. I only have Shimmer Effect left to try.

Swamp Princess is a gorgeous green jelly packed with a variety of glitter. I love the mix of giant hexes with smaller glitters. It seems indies don't use giant hexes anymore and I miss those! The combination of holographic gold, copper, red, and pink work so well with the green base. I only needed two coats! Be sure to enlarge the pictures to see the glitters.

I then added accents nails of OPI L.A.M.B. Two coats and top coat because I didn't care for the contrast of jelly and satin.

What do you think of this one? Are there any older indie brands that you miss these days? Unfortunately Nailventurous no longer makes nail polish, but you can sometimes find them pop up in sales groups.
