Right on the Nail ~ Scofflaw Nail Varnish Swatches and Review: Flotsam & Jetsam and Love Letter to Bob Ross

Scofflaw Nail Varnish Flotsam & Jetsam (3 coats)

Scofflaw Nail Varnish Love Letter to Bob Ross (2 coats)

Hump Day! This week has been flying by, and that's totally ok with me. Tonight I'm featuring an indie brand that is new to the blog called Scofflaw Nail Varnish. They were an immediate success back in 2013 and are still not the easiest to buy (I bought these this summer and the colors sold out fast). The polishes retail for $9.00.

Up first is Flotsam & Jetsam (I'm in love with the name!) which is a mint green color with turquoise and purple microglitter and flake shards. I think it was the flake shards that really drew me in. It's a busy color, but that just makes me love it even more. I found the base to be a little sheer, but it fully covered in 3 coats. I was expecting it to have a really thick application, but I need to quit going into trying new indie's thinking that way because 99% of the time they are amazing.

The second color is actually part of a duo that sold out within minutes (I was lucky to get one of them) called Love Letter to Bob Ross. If you don't know who Bob Ross was, what rock have you been living under? I was a huge fan of Bob on PBS during the 80s. His voice was just so soothing! And the happy trees! Love Letter to Bob Ross has a lot of subtle things going on with it. It's a really deep blue green teal color with grey flakes and red, pink and blue shimmer. Even though it's really dark, it never appeared black in any light. I think this is the perfect fall or winter color. It had a smooth application and was almost a 1-coater.

Scofflaw Nail Varnish colors retail for $9 on their website. Sign up for the newsletter to find out about restocks and new collections. You can also find out more about them on Instagram and Facebook.
