And I knew I just had to have a custom polish inspired by this series! I contacted a few makers, but in the end, Missi from Different Dimension came to my rescue. I told her my idea and she brought it to life. BEAUTIFULLY. I couldn't have asked for anything MORE than she made it. It's perfection in a bottle. The only thing wrong with it? There's only 3 bottles. This isn't a polish that's for sale :(
Where did I get that name? It's from a quote at the end of the book where Prince Maxon declares his love for the main character, America Singer. The jest of the book is, in the future, The US is destroyed and has been reborn into a new country with a ruling monarch and a caste system. When that monarch has a child, they have a Bachelor-esque competition to find a spouse for the heir. The series is about that competition and America's complete inability to make a decision hah!
“Break my heart. Break it a thousand times if you like. It was only ever yours to break anyway.”Doesn't that just make your cold heart melt hahahaha Anyway, as for coloring, I wanted the polish to have the colors of the book covers because, HELLO, teal and orange are my favorite! I thought a milky white base would be perfect. Missi is a master, and she brought my creation to life when all I did was send her the three cover images below.
-Kiera Cass, The One (I wish I could find the page, but my Kindle doesn't have a definite page)
Great colors together, huh? Here's a closer view of the polish. I initially went back and forth with adding bigger glitter pieces. Missi and I talked about it, but honestly, I think the glitters are perfect. And the little bit of holo sheen is amazing.
I am so happy with this polish!!!! Missi could not have read my mind anymore than she did. It's just perfect, and exactly what I wanted. But stayed tuned - I have two bottles for my blogaversary giveaways, which are coming up in January! I'm almost to the 4-year mark. How crazy is that?
