DEVILED TIPS

Today I have for you all one of the great gifts I got from Nixxy - Dito Karpati Nail Lacquer. The name of the color is - Devilish. I just love this color name! I had a great idea for a collection of nail polishes - have white/sheers/light colors for the Angel Collection, of course all with really cute names like Cherub, Angelic, Angel's Wing, etc. And then have your dark/vampy colors for your Devil Collection with names like Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned, Devil's Demise, Devil in a Blue Dress, etc. I can even see the promotional poster now too, pretty girl looking very confused as to what color to paint her nails - with an angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. Wouldn't that be really cool? I wish I had more time on my hands - I would totally franken my own collection like that! Who knows, maybe I still will and reveal it to you all one day :)


Anyway - I got off there for a minute, lol. I think Devilish is a great name for this color though. It just seems so fitting. It is dark with gold and red shimmer to it. Just a really pretty color I think. When I first put this on, I thought it only had gold shimmer to it. After taking a much closer look though, there is some definite red shimmer in this polish too. I think that helps with the dark look that this has.


The bottle is a little hard to handle when painting your own nails, but it could be handy if I was painting some one elses. All in all, it's a great color - so great that today was my third day with it on! Thanks NIX!

What a bonkers bottle! I adore that colour though - utterly vampy and beautiful.

Loving your idea for the collection and the ad campaign. I really hope the powers that be are reading this and take you up on it!

What a totally wonderful vamp shade. Gorgeous! That bottle is a little intimidating though.

Busy indeed. Good luck with work!

Brooke said...

STEPHANIE - Sorry, but this came from Australia. Another blogger was kind enough to send this to me. Sorry I can't be of any more help to you on this.

I Love this colour! It looks great on you!

Nicole said...

Wow, that's a hot color! The bottle itself is so eye-catchingly different *lol* Of course, we don't have anything like this.
I love your idea, it's a totally cute one and I think it would sell like hotcakes!

Hi guys - if you're looking for these polishes, they're sold online in the UK here -

http://www.beautyexpert.co.uk/shop-karpati/

and have a website here -
http://www.karpati.com.au/nailcare/awareness

- that you *might* be able to order from.

I got this from a pharmacy in Oz (reduced from $20 to $10), as Brooke said. I have to say I was very disappointed as they make a HUGE fuss of being a safe brand, but the polishes still have formaldehyde resin in them - as I found out when my fingers swelled up painfully! No ingredients list anywhere on the bottle or website to be found, funnily enough! Sigh.

Love it so much. Perfect vampy colour! That bottle is awesome though, I'm going to have to hunt it down definitely now!

Kae said...

I absolutely love this color, so vampy and delicious!

Alexlyndra said...

That colour is absolutely stunning!

Nessa said...

That is a yummy, devilish color! I just love deep, shimmery reds!

I love your idea for a nail polish line. You should get together with Jen and put it together! I love this polish. Looks beautiful on you. What a pretty glow it has. The bottle looks like a pita though. Are you supposed to wear it while you do your nails?

Jenny said...

I love the idea for the nail polish idea. Lol Heaven could be duo chrome flashing pink and silver. There could be one called Paradise that could be a light green with gold undertones. And then Purgatory could be gray with a hint of purple. That would so awesome. I love thinking of stuff like that. The nail polish looks gorgeous.

I'm with Nessa (and many other commenters)- I love black-based shimmery reds, and I adore this color!

Sex toy bottle and all!
