I was really sick a couple of weeks ago and barely got out of bed for a few days. I attempted to go to work, with mixed results. Mostly I just watched all of the Harry Potter movies in order. Over and over. I'm more than a little obsessed with them. (Once again, I'll spare you my fangirling, and keep this post polish related.) During my extended movie marathon, I made sure to use a couple of my Harry Potter inspired polishes. Kind of a no-brainer, really. I'm sure most of you will recognize today's polish. Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, from Lac Attack's Magical Musings collection, is a big lemming for some people, and I can see why!
Lac Attack Weasley's Wizard Wheezes is a bright mix of matte orange and yellow bar and hex glitters in a clear base. This polish is just so fun! I applied it like a normal polish and got pretty good glitter coverage. I then went back and dabbed a little more on to cover any bald spots, but I didn't really have to worry about exact placement of the bars or hexes. They didn't clump together and spread out nicely. This is one "coat." I used Essie Butler Please as my base polish. I really liked this combo, but I think it made my camera freak out a little. I could see myself wearing WWW over black around Halloween, and I still want to try it over aqua. One coat of Seche Vite made it smooth and shiny. (Oh, and I don't recommend wearing Butler Please when you're sick. Maybe my sense of smell was heightened, but it just smelled rancid. Maybe it's always smelled like that, and I just didn't realize or had forgotten, but it was overwhelming. I could still smell it the day after I applied it, and I was paranoid that other people were aware of the rotten egg/dead fish smell coming from my fingertips. Yeah. But gee, it sure is pretty.)
Isn't this such a cheery and fun combo?! It's definitely eye-catching. I was surprised that the over fifty crowd at work (male and female) was very fond of this mani. Nothing like having a woman in her eighties interrupt you to tell you how much she adores your nail polish. Lol. I loved wearing a polish that made me think happy thoughts whenever I looked at my nails. I have a ton of glitter toppers, but this one is special. I also loved that I was able to score this polish at all. If you've ever watched any of the Lac Attack restocks, you'll know that WWW sells out almost immediately. I got this little bottle of sunshine into my cart a few months ago the second the listing went live. Thank goodness my phone refreshes like a champ!
The Lac Attack shop seems to be closed at the moment, and Weasley's Wizard Wheezes is sold out at Harlow & Co. right now, but don't fret. It is possible to get this polish. You just have to wait for it. The most recent restock was last week, so it might be a bit before the next one. Your best bet is to follow Lac Attack on Facebook and by blog for updates. I don't know the specifics, but there's also a waitlist for the full Magical Musings collection. Harry Potter fans, rejoice!
