Too Cute-icle Apocalypse Party!

Absolutely ridiculous confession incoming...

When I was in 8th grade (shout out to Crystal Middle School class of 1998!) we watched a video about the ancient Mayans in my history class which ended with THE CALENDAR. While I am not typically a conspiracy theory kind of person, for some reason the date 12/21/2012 stuck with me and I had this odd sense of urgency to accomplish certain things prior to that date...just in case! (LOL yeah laugh at me, I laugh at me too!) IN MY DEFENSE THOUGH, 2012 was also the 'decade' mark from high school graduation so its kind of good timeline marker to reflect on the things I thought I'd have done by now, and the things I've actually done. All in all, I wasn't nervous about the world ending (I don't have a basement full of water and non-perishable food, or a bunker under the backyard patio), just anxious to see how far I've come.

When Jess at Too Cute-icle decided to release a limited edition 12/21/2012 themed polish I knew I had to have! Only 21 bottles were released and I was ecstatic to be able to snag my favorite number, #3!

Apocalypse Party is a gorgeous glitter bomb of blue, gold, and red hex glitters, and teeny tiny green and orange hexes. One of the things I love about this polish is that it is super colorful without being a traditional rainbow (not that I have anything against rainbows, call off the Calvary people!) Another thing I love is that even though its 'busy' with the variety of colors, it still maintains a really nice balance and uniformity because the majority of the glitters are the same size.

I did 2 mani's with this polish because I love it so much! The first is Apocalypse Party over Zoya's Trixie. With the flash you can see that Trixie is a gorgeous silver foil, but in person (and without flash) it looks a bit gold with AP over it. Either way, its super fun! (Click to enlarge any photo)

The 2nd mani is a 'backwards' gradient of Apocalypse Party over ORLY Shockwave.

I can see myself wearing Apocalypse Party a bunch! It would be perfect for any kind of party, and you can put it over so many different colors and it would still look amazing! While Apocalypse Party is no longer available on her Etsy shop, keep your eyes peeled for some gorgeous new creations coming very soon!

  1. love it over Trixie! I'm not laughing at you.. I personally felt really anxious about that date. Not because of the Mayan stuff necessarily, but because I know that other people DID believe in it so I was kind of scared some people might freak out or use it as an excuse to do something rotten. My 15 year school reunion is this year, so I totally get the whole looking back at what I've accomplished thing..
