I’m revisiting an old, now dropped spike polish that reminds me of a Gustav Klimt painting. Bear with me. It is a classic, dry antique shade of yellow bullion like a colours of The Kiss portrayal we schooled about during school.
The spike polish was given to me as a present by a good lady we was smooching during a time. He had birthright from a certain partial of Colombia where misconceptions and legends dating behind to 1270 BC told of a golden aristocrat in El Dorado, aka ‘the city of gold’.
I desired conference about a genealogical arch who would cover himself in bullion and dive into a enchanting lake. We talked about it a lot, so my crony bought me a spike polish as a curtsy to this thread of Colombian story and my golden fascination.
The spike varnish, if we can find some, is OPI’s Pineapples Have Peelings Too. Packed with flecks of lead shine in all shades of treasure-like wealth – greens, reds and blues – it looks like you’ve dipped nail-varnished fingers into a pot of humanities and crafts before they’ve dried. And a best bit? It’s really presumably a usually spike polish that looks only as good chipped and smashed as it does creatively applied.
