Hello polish friends. I have one last Alanna Renee Magical World nail polish to show you and this one is dark and sinister! If you missed my last couple posts you can see Patronus HERE and Golden Snitch HERE. Alanna Renee is based in Australia and she opened up shop in January 2013. The Magical World collection was inspired by Harry Potter and really, who doesn't love Harry Potter?! Genius to combine the love for HP and nail polish. This collection does a great job capturing all the polish namesakes. For all the international buyers (non-Australian residents) Alanna Renee is available through Color4Nails. You can contact Color4Nails on Facebook, IG (color4nails) or just send Sisi an email with your order inquiry: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Horcrux is a creepy polish. Not itself but it's inspiration and meaning in the movies. If you are unfamiliar Alanna explains that a Horcrux is "inspired by the fragment of soul that a dark wizard or witch hides inside a powerful object for the purpose of immortality. A Horcrux gives one the ability to resurrect oneself if the body is destroyed." When I opened this polish I immediately thought of Harry and Dumbledore in the Horcrux Cave with the black lake - I will tell no more in fear of spoiling the movie fun for anyone who hasn't seen the movies. Horcrux is a black base with color shifting flakes. I see grey, green, blue, maybe purple even? The flakes with the dark base make for a gorgeous effect. I used 2 coats of Horcrux and the formula was great, easy to apply and no issues to report. I finished this with 1 layer of topcoat.
