New Year's Eve: Bee's Knees Who The Hell is Bucky?

Time to ring in the new year!

Bee's Knees keeps coming up with fantastic themed mystery bag polishes that are later sold individually if mysteries aren't your thing.  Out of each of these releases, there's at least a few that I just have to grab.  Who the Hell is Bucky?, a part of the Marvel mysteries, is a not-quite-black charcoal base packed with dark red aurora shimmer and a sprinkling of holo flake.  Vampy and glowy, it's ideal for a late night party look.

I started with one coat of Bucky on each nail, then made marble decals for my thumb, index, and pinky with Dance Legend Spot It White, Sinful Colors Under 18, and Zoya Alicia along with Bucky.  My Spot It appears to not really be working anymore, but while I didn't get many areas with good foam cells, the marble effect was still very pretty.

Festive designs on each hand are 2 perfect coats of Bucky, stamped in Emily de Molly silver holo, using images from MoYou London Typography 10 (who knew ouija boards had the exact right number font for this?), Sugar Bubbles 04, and MYL Festive 39.

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars for Bucky.  The darker base means the beautiful aurora shift is subtle on the nail, so this isn't a dramatic multichrome.  Instead, the smoldering red shimmer provides that awesome "lit from within" glow.  The formula was utter perfection, needing only minimal cleanup - really nice in a dark polish.  This did wear very quickly on me, showing obvious edgewear after just 24h though I wasn't doing anything too rough on my hands. 

Where to buy:  direct from Bee's Knees.
