Hey guys! I have more polishes for you from this months Polish Pickup. The theme for October is Villains! Nadia from Moonflower Polish has chosen to take on Star Wars Grand Admiral Thrawn. “My love of sci-fi really became an obsession when I read the Heir to the Empire Trilogy (also known as the Thrawn Trilogy) by Timothy Zahn as a pre-teen. I consider them to be necessary reading for any Star Wars fan. For decades, the books, comics, and video games of the Star Wars Expanded Universe was all SW fans had until the prequels and new Episodes came out. Sadly, after Disney’s acquisition of SW, they re-branded all these materials as “Legends” and declared them non-cannon in April 2014. However, not all hope is lost as a few characters have made their way back, including Thrawn who was once again introduced as a villain in the Disney SW Rebels cartoon show. Thrawn is a humaniod alien in the Star Wars Universe, one of the few to rise the ranks in the Empire. He’s described as having blue skin with red eyes and black hair, and is known for his brilliant strategic mind and ruthlessness. My polish is inspired by his appearance and uniform.” I know that’s kind of a lot but I think it’s necessary. I am a Star Wars fan (not HUGE HUGE but still) and I had no idea this character existed. I am really happy to have this info and I want o have it out there for anyone else like me who didn’t know. Now that you have been here forever, you might as well get some pretty pics!
The Grand Admiral “is a bright cerulean blue creme with red shimmer, red-pink-gold aurora pigment, and gold, gunmetal, and red microflakes, with scattered holo.” Fun fact: cerulean blue is my all time favorite color. I used to pronounce it ser-you-lean… I was like 10 lol. Anyways, this blue is so perfect for it’s inspiration. Like the exact color! Nadia’s polishes are always on the thicker side since they are specifically made for nail art and stamping. The Grand Admiral wasn’t too thick at all. Perfectly creamy and smooth. It could totally be a 1 coater. I used 2 coats plus glossy and matte top coat for my swatches.
It’s so bold stamped over red ❤ I am really glad I have this for my collection. Make sure you add it to yours! PPU will be open October 5th – 8th. This polish will be $13.50 USD and there will only be 75 full sized bottles available. Links are below! Have a great day!
