Scofflaw Flotsam & Jetsam

Scofflaw is one of the newer indie brands; I think Finch, the creator, just set up shop at the beginning of this year. I was completely blown away when I first saw pictures of Scofflaw polishes, especially this one. I just had to have it! Flotsam & Jetsam is a sheer, pale mint green with purple and turquoise shard glitter and microglitter. There is also a very pretty green shimmer in there too.

I have to say I don't think I've done this polish justice with my photos. I loved it so much I ended up wearing this mani for four days (and it looked as good on the last day as the first) but it's a very difficult colour to photograph! My fingers are not as red as they look! The picture above is with light from above (taken on the table where I usually do my macro shots). The next few pictures are near the window, and you can see that with light behind, the overall effect is much more delicate.

Flotsam is floating wreckage of a ship, and jetsam is ship's cargo or equipment that is cast ashore to lighten the load and ultimately washes up on shore. The colours in the polish remind me of bits of smashed up coloured glass floating around in the froth on the sea - I think the polish is very aptly named! 

Here's a bottle shot and a macro

Flotsam & Jetsam was a nice consistency and easy to apply; I used three coats, plus a thick coat of Sinful Colors Gel Tech topcoat - which seems to smooth out glitters a treat and dries quite quickly.

I purchased Scofflaw Flotsam & Jetsam directly from Finch (along with three other colours, which I'll be wearing and posting about soon). Here's a link to her etsy store and facebook pageLlarowe also stocks Scofflaw polishes. Obviously, because the polishes are awesome they sell out quick!
