Okay, so, for ages back at 3ChicGeeks, I’ve wanted to do a Friday Favorites thing. Partly because we had struggled with having a 3-days-a-week posting schedule that actually, you know, got posted, and partly because I like sharing things I like with people who aren’t necessarily my Facebook friends list, my guild, my alliance, or my favorite subreddit. Plenty of other blogs do it too; I’m especially into how Everyday Is A Holiday does theirs – pretty things that fit their aesthetic and lifestyle.

Well. Let’s just say, shopping happened. I’d been meaning to try some of the fandom polishes that nebulously float across Etsy for a while now, and this seemed like a good place to start. In the past, I’ve mainly stuck with store-bought polish, so this was an interesting experiment for me.
I ended up buying three different shades. The first, Aren’t the Stars and Stripes a Little Old-Fashioned, is a Captain America glitter polish in red, white, and blue. I picked it because I recently started RPing as Captain America in my friend Loki’s RP group, and it’s pretty great. The second, Genius Billionaire Playboy Philantropist, is an orange and red glitter polish, with some huge round holo flakes. I picked it because, duh, Iron Man. And, finally, the third shade is You and I Remember Budapest Very Differently, which, obviously, is a Clintasha-inspired black and red sparkly glitter.
