Foxy Paws - Before The Parade Passes By

Hello lovely people! I'm so excited today to show you this brand new polish from the Danish indie brand Foxy Paws. It's called Before The Parade Passes By, and it's a part of the new Holo, Dolly! Collection. Before The Parade Passes By is a sky blue holographic lacquer. In the shade it's so elegant with a very delicate shimmer and glow, and as soon as the sun meets the surface it just transforms into this amazing holographic glitter ball. The formula is really nice, it only took 3 thin coats on top of my regular OPI Nail Envy base coat (it doesn't require an aqua base - yay!). You could definitely wear it without a top coat, but I just put on Chanel's Extreme Shine top coat like I use to, as it doesn't reduce the holo effect. Speaking of Chanel - the brush that came with this reminds me so much of Chanel's nail polish brushes, and luckily they're my favorite. You get that extra bit of control during application, which lacks with much bigger brushes.

I have to admit that this is my first time trying out indie polish. I know right? About time! :) I'm so impressed - I can't believe that this cool Danish chick made these! Like a friend of mine said; it's crazy how indie polishes can be better than store brands and such - she's so right! I put on Before The Parade Passes By on saturday around lunch, and today tuesday, there's not even a single chip. I haven't reapplied top coat plus it survived shampooing. I don't think I've ever experienced that with any Essie or OPI. I only have with Chanel and Dior! And now this! :) Okay, on to the photos! These first 2 are taken inside in the shadow, and the rest outside in direct sunlight. I bet you can tell the difference yourself anyway though ;) Read on below les photos for the final verdict and buying information! :)

It's like a whole new world (resisting the urge to sing) has opened up to me! Indie polish, aww yeah! I'm so ready for more! And guys, sorry about the long post, but this was a "first" to me, so deal with it okay? Haha. Anyway! I highly recommend you check out this brand, especially if you're into long lasting nail polish that is unique, handmade and 4-free, which means free from DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde resin - and never tested on animals.

Foxy Paws - Before The Parade Passes By is available on www.foxyfingertips.dk next week which is from monday July 29. Check out Foxy Paws on facebook at www.facebook.com/FoxyPawsPolish! I'm looking super duper forward to trying out more of the nail polishes I received from Foxy Paws and WellNails. WellNails is, like Foxy Paws, an indie brand launched by the amazing Charlotte. You'll see what that's about very soon here on my blog. Until then guys! See ya!

  1. Skal SÅ meget på listen! Hvis du er sulten efter mere indie-lak, så anbefaler jeg A-England. Fantastiske farver og superb kvalitet. Det er definitivt mit yndlingsmærke, og der skulle eddermame noget til at slå Chanel af topppen! ;)
