I bought this polish, Dollish Polish’s One Choice from their Ultimate Fandom Collection, because yes, it’s cute and its glitter mix of primary-coloured hexy bits is something a little bit different, but mostly because – sorry, sweetie, but I’m about to out you – Mr. Finger Candy is a giant nerd for dystopian teen romance action movies such as the inspiration for this polish, last year’s Divergent. I thought he’d enjoy the nod to his favourite movie of the summer of 2014.
He also likes dance movies.
And I love that I’m still sporting that badass-looking cut on my index finger for this mani. It really fits in with the whole “I sustained this whilst leaping from a moving train onto the roof of a building before rappelling into an impromptu rave/fight club in a leather jumpsuit” vibe of the movie (I wish I could say the same for the broken nail on my ring finger, but that just straight up broke on me this week – twice.) Actually, I think the five different colours of glitter – red, blue, gold, silver and black – represent the five factions of the Divergent world. I actually can’t remember, because, unlike my beloved, I thought it was just sort of okay; nothing I really ever need to see again. But I’ll definitely wear this polish again, because it’s super pretty – a unique choice for a time of year typically swamped with pinks and pastels, and just in time for the release of the second movie in the series, Detergent. Sorry, I mean Insurgent.
