420 Holiday / Big Lebowski Inspired Nail Polish Duo - The Dude Abides and Strikes & Gutters
We've created a duo of fun nail polishes to celebrate 4/20/2020 and The Big Lebowski - we can't guarantee they'll get to you in time to wear them on 4/20, but hey, 4:20 happens every day, right?
This duo is designed to be worn together or apart.
The Dude Abides is a glitter nail polish with a clear base. It features Mary Jane (or hemp, if you prefer) shaped glitters, as well as glitters shaped like black bowling balls, and white glitters reminiscent of bowling pins. The copper shimmer really ties the polish together :)
- Strikes & Gutters is a new addition to our fan-favorite line of matte nail polishes. It's a perfect mellow orange that compliments warm or cool skin tones, based on the color palette of the Dude, Donny & Walter's bowling alley. It features a subtle gold shimmer that comes out to shine if you choose to make this glossy with a top coat.
Photos show 2 coats of Strikes & Gutters or 1 coat of The Dude Abides, either separately or layered on top of one another
About Big Glitter Pieces
- Big glitters like the little Mary Jane leaf shapes in The Dude Abides tend to sink to the bottom of the bottle. We recommend you turn your bottle upside down a few minutes for your mani, to give them time to redistribute, so you can more easily snag them with the brush :)
About Matte Nail Polish:
- When the polish looks matte, it's dry! It will still look glossy in the bottle, and while it's wet!
- No top coat needed!If you use one, and it's not a matte top coat, it will make the polish glossy.
