Grace-full Nail Polish Roaring Twenties

Today I have the Grace-full Nail Polish Roaring Twenties collection to share with you.

Grace-full Nail Polish Roaring Twenties collection was inspired by The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  All of the polish names are from slang words used in this era.  This collection will release on June 23rd at 7pm CST in the US and has already launched in Australia at Indie Con.

This set consists of seven polishes in a variety of finishes.  They all applied well.  The only one that was a bit tricky removing was “Ritzy.”  After I share the descriptions with you for each shade, I will also be sharing a note from Theresa (the maker) about the color and how it ties in with The Great Gatsby.

“SPIFFY”

Golden, brass or Gold has been used nearly 15 times in the novel.  Traditionally, these colors symbolize wealth and riches and particularly old wealth.  Gold and green used in the book thus contrastingly symbolized old wealth and new riches.

The Bees Knees is taken from this line in the book: “there was a pink and gold billow of foamy clouds above the sea” (p. 91.)  So to me, I had to make a rose gold.

“CAT’S MEOW”

Red and gold books, wine colors rug, crimson room, pink suit, red circle on water, etc are used for depicting richness, elegance, danger, tastelessness and death respectively.  Therefore Cat’s Meow had to be a multichrome based on red.

Blue is the color of being depressed, moody, or unhappy.  Therefore a lot of things around Gatsby are blue.

“RITZY”

“Ritzy” is a black and gold ultra holographic microglitter.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.  Since this is filled with glitter, it was more difficult to remove.

Now we could not do Gatsby without a black and gold!  Black wheel represents mourning, black wreath shows nervousness and black rivulets show sorrow.  Black is also used to represent injury and gloomy setting.  Words like black morning, black beach, etc show gloominess or an impending doom.  Tom’s black eyes are shown to represent hostility and anger.

Green has been mentioned nearly 18 times in the novel.  Traditionally, green is associated with wealth, growth, spring, etc.  It is also used to convey envy.  Gatsby is thus shown to be an envious character as he is jealous of the fact that Daisy belongs to another man.  Green is also used to represent the power of money which Gatsby has plenty of.  Until the end, Gatsby is hopeful that can win Daisy with this power of money.  Another area depicting green color symbolism in the Great Gatsby is the green car which is called the “death car.”

“WHOPEE”

Grace-full Nail Polish Roaring Twenties Whopee

“Whopee” is a peach/coral holo with gold shifts.  Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Here I stepped away from Fitzgerald to indulge my own love of 1920’s fashion.  I love the coral/peach dresses as in a world of silver, gold, black, and neutral tones these dresses really stood out.

All in all I love this collection.  The variety of finishes is nice!
