Press it For Glory

Press it For Glory is a silver pigmented polish with black square glitter in two different sizes and loads of silver holo.

It's inspired by the awesome episode "Woooo!", in which Barney's firm (Goliath National Bank) chooses the architectual firm Sven to design their new head quarters instead of Ted's company, Mosbius Designs.

Or, actually Barney makes the decision - after this presentation from Sven:

Sorry about the quality, I couldn't find a better version on YouTube.

Anywho, if you watch the clip the inspiration pretty much gives, right?
Silver pigments because of the awesome Tyrannosaurus Rex! And black glitter because of the Svens' outfits. And microscopic, silver holo bar glitter that pops out whenever you turn the nails, giving them a sparkly, yet sophisticated look.

I do love this colour, but it has not been given the proper recognition it deserves ;)
It was worn by Lauristrodes Fun With Nails on the Robert Awards (the Danish version of the Emmy, I believe). That's pretty darn cool, right?

Here are some more shots of it. It's so hard to take a good picture of it's holographic loveliness!

Shade - still sparkly, but more refined.

How do you guys feel about it now?

Sort of looks like a... Blue French Horn!

Hi y'all,

I've been working on this polish ever since I started on this WellNails project. Actually, first of I did a franken to try to come up with this royal blue colour. It didn't sit just right.

So I shelfed the idea. Until I finally came about just the right pigment to make this beautiful, blue colour - my favourite colour. Royal blue. Mmm...

So it's with great pride I present to you:

Sort of looks like a Smurf Penis

As you can see I've given it two names. When running this name through a couple of my friends, I got unsure about if the penis part would offend anyone and be the reason for not wanting to wear it. And some of my friends said that they would never buy a penis named polish.

So I decided to also name it Blue French Horn. Hey, if ManGlaze can get away with double naming their polishes - so can I!

Whatever you prefer, it is still the same polish: A royal blue jelly based one filled with holographic blue glitter. In these pictures I'm wearing two layers, and it pretty much covers with only a little VNL. Three coats would do the trick completely :)

It's inspired by the very first episode of How I Met Your Mother, where Ted meets Robin. They go to a restaurant for their first date, that has a blue french horn hanging on the wall for decoration.

When Robin mentiones it, Ted says: "Yeah, it sort of looks like a Smurf penis..."

Older Ted later tells his children: "Son, a piece of advice: When you go on a first date, your really don't want to say "Smurf penis", girls don't ordinarily like that."

Luckily, Robin is no ordinary girl. And the blue french horn becomes a theme many times later in the show.
