I'm gonna swipe creator Shannon's words and just slap 'em up right here so you can get a feel for what inspired her:

"Mukashi Mukashi...

A few months ago while doing some research for names we came across a table of storytelling phrases in different languages, including the Japanese variant "mukashi mukashi..." Every culture has one of these that loosely translates to what we think of as "once upon a time" and usually a variant of "and they lived happily every after" as well.

We had been working on a collection inspired by Japanese stories and some of our favorite animes on and off for the last few years but this was what really brought it all together for me. I hope that you all enjoy these polishes as much as I enjoyed making them!"

The collection is stuffed with scattered holo pigments, holo flakies, shifty shimmers, soft shades and light formulas. Many of these took me 3 coats to reach opacity, but results across the board were floaty and fairly-like. There's an amazing element of charm in all 10 bottles.

For most of these pretties, I did my regular kind of thin first coat, a second fatty, a third fatty, and a whack of my Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat.

The way these polishes show varies greatly under different lighting so I tried to shoot everything twice so you could see them in natural indoor light and again with a side of salad (aka grass) but sometimes it's cloudy and rainy (grrrr).

When the sun doesn't cooperate at the precise time of day I'm swatchin', holo doesn't pop and my skin comes out looking all kinds of martian or lobster – needless to say, those photos didn't make the cut.

You could conceivably use a matching pair of underpants for any of these (iKnow b/c iTried) but the results won't give you the same kind of... allure? Magic? Fairytaleness? Yeah, that.
