Announcement: Fedoraharp Lacuer, first collection!

WELCOME TO A NEW ERA OF BLOGGING ON FEDORAHARP!!!! I have mentioned my indie brand before, but here I'm officially announcing it: As of next Sunday, I will be launching my Hanukkah collection in my Etsy shop! Very soon after that I'll be launching my second collection, and a duo (I planned them all simultaneously but Hanukkah gets a bump because of the date).

I've created six Hanukkah themed polishes, four glitter toppers, a jelly/glitter combo, and an opaque shimmer. The polishes in these pictures do not yet have sticker labels, but I will be getting those in a couple of days!

Not to worry though, I'll keep blogging like a regular blogger also. Nail art has always been my first nail polish love, and I won't easily abandon it! Also, there are other indies out there and I'm gonna keep buying from them and swatching them here as long as I have money to burn through spend.

Without further ado, the polishes! These are only partially edited- I slapped a watermark on them, but I haven't cleaned up any flaws around the edges of my nails digitally. For the site they'll be a little cleaner, but I couldn't wait to share these.

Topsy Turvy

I got the name idea from my friend Angie, I'd been trying and trying to think of an appropriately draidel-y name for this brightly colored polish, so thank you Angie! I used a combination of colorful geometric shapes to evoke the (kinda abstract) idea of the colorful fun of a draidel. This is one dabbed coat over a black cream.

Join The Macabbim! See The World!
My inspiration here is, of course, the blue and white shield symbol of the Macabbim, and since they don't make Magen David shaped particles, I decided to use triangles! (No sunlight picture for this one. Whoops!). This is two coats over Color Club Trippie Hippie

Since taking these pictures, I have actually tweaked the formula for this nail polish to make it considerably less bumpy and streaky. No flakies, either. I like their look but they're the big culprit for the bumps, sadly. Still, I wanted to show you the glowy shimmer of the base color! If anyone really wants, I've got a couple of the old formulation available upon request, but I'm putting the newer version online. Swatches of that version soon! This is three coats alone.

This is an inside-out sort of thing- usually the sufganiya color is on the outside, and the jelly color is on the inside, but admit it- the jelly color is wayyyyy prettier. So why not make it the main attraction? This is three thin coats.

Powdered Sugar
What's a good classic sufganiya without a powdery topping? Or topper, as the case may be. I love translucent white glitter, so of course I had to make a polish with some in it! This is one coat over China Glaze Custom Kicks

Chocolate Gold Rush
I have to admit, I did not expect this one to be my favorite when I came up for the idea for it, but I ended up liking it best of all! I knew I wanted to make a gelt-themed nail polish, but I think chocolate coins are the best kind of coins (chocolate anything is the best kind of thing, really), so I based the idea on that. This is one coat over Golden Rose Matte 20 (incidentally, my very favorite neutral polish color ever)

So what do you think? Will you be picking up any of these when the store opens? I'm going to dive right into the holiday spirit with a 10% off everything sale, and I will be making full sized (15ml) and mini (5ml) versions of each polish available.
