Polish Royalty Meets the King of The Lizards

Hello, Fireflies!

When I started developing this rabid addiction to nail polish, there were some brands I was desperate to try.  KOH was one of them, even though I had to have it shipped internationally to get it.

This lovely brown is KOH Chocolate Brown. I love the subtle shimmer, which is apparently due to the addition of topaz.  It's such a rich polish.

But it's not just the color or shimmer that makes this 'Polish Royalty'.  Check out the packaging:


I've never seen polish come with a leather (or faux leather, I'm not sure) and lined snap case, with a little fan for drying your nails.  LUX.

Yep, I can't wait until the end of the post for the bottle shots.  The fan is too cute, and the embossed polish case is such a nice touch.  I even love the shape of the bottle.


So, when I was thinking about nail art, I immediately thought of T-Rex, the King of the Lizards, for this royal-treatment of a polish.

Little, tiny t-rexes.


These gold foil t-rexes are small, but sharp! they're made of gold-colored foil.  I bought them from The Sparkly Shop. I think they're totes adorbz.  Totes T-rex Adorbz, y'all.


 What would you pair a T-rex nail charm with?

(not my picture; not sure who to credit, though.  Just a funny picture from the Interwebz.)

    1. This polish isn't super-unique, but I had to have a couple of their flakies, and well, there's shipping, so you just get a couple more... Glad I could give you a giggle today!

    1. have you seen that meme with the two T-rexes and it says, "Rowr" means "I love you" in dinosaur. <3 I'm sure they were terrifying in their day, but mini ones are cute.

    1. I've seen people put real snakeskin on their nails.. I'm sure if T-rexes were still around, some fool would try to put something of theirs on their nails.. lol!

    1. I'm not familiar with Lagerfeld's packaging. I imagine it's pretty luxe, though! Pretty sure I can't afford it, lol.
