This collection is being released in memory of three friends of mine who all lost their lives to suicide - D, J, and LM. To protect the privacy of them and their families I have also chosen representative celebrity suicides that have affected me personally and many others. Though suicide has many faces, there are those struggling with mental health who don’t have as strong of an impact on us as celebrity deaths do. So in this way I have chosen to connect both in this collection.
Chester B - for Chester Bennington, and D, this polish lends its inspiration to Chester’s very iconic flame tattoos. The polish has a candy apple jelly base with orange holo hex glitters of various sizes, and has an icy blue shimmer which gives it a pink tint at some angles.
Zombie Boy - for Rick Genest, and LM, this polish is inspired by a modelling photo of Rick Genest as well as the Thierry Mugler video featuring him and the music of Lady Gaga. This fashion icon is represented by a fashionable royal purple creme base with blue green purple and pink shifting shimmer and loaded with reflective glitters to mimic the flashes of cameras on the runway.
*I would like to note that there is some speculation as to whether Genest was truly a suicide however he is included in this collection due to his icon status in the fashion, tattoo, and queer community as well as his personal significance to myself and LM.
Who Waits Forever Anyway? - for Stan Kirsch, and J, this polish is inspired by Stan’s iconic gold curls as well as the blue-grey shirt he often sported as Richie Ryan in Highlander. This is a solar polish that shifts from a soft butter yellow indoors to a soft grey blue-green in sunlight, and is loaded with iridescent microflakies to catch the sun.
