Description Ingredients and Warnings Blogger Reviews
Io Saturnalia! has a metallic foil finish with a blend of silver and gold particles, as well as flecks of blue and purple and holographic microglitter and shimmer. Two to three coats are recommended. Each bottle contains one or two stainless steel BBs for mixing.

Saturnalia was the most highly-anticipated holiday in the Roman calendar. It was like Christmas, New Year, and Mardi Gras rolled into one, and actually helped inspire later Christmas traditions. Saturnalia lasted for several days around the winter solstice and honored Saturn, the god of agriculture, wealth, liberation, destruction and renewal. Saturn was an ancient Italian god and king of the mythical Golden Age, when all people were equal and enjoyed the fruits of the earth without having to work. He was also believed to be an ancestor of the Latin people (including Romans and their neighbors).

Once the solemn rites and sacrifices of Saturnalia were done, the nonstop partying began. Everyone got a break from work and spent the festival feasting, drinking, gambling and exchanging gifts (often small things like candles and figurines). The streets echoed with shouts of "io Saturnalia!", sort of a more enthusiastic version of "happy holidays!"
Always start with a base coat to extend the life of your manicure and reduce the risk of staining. Apply the recommended number of thin coats, waiting for a few minutes in between. Paint over the tips of your nails to form a seal. Finish with a quick-dry topcoat such as Out the Door or Seche Vite. For bumpy glitter polishes, you may need more than one coat of topcoat for a smooth finish.

To keep your nails and cuticles healthy, we recommend a cuticle balm such as Indigo Bananas!

Three-/four-/five-free polishes may settle over time (a layer of clear liquid will form at the top of the bottle). A good shake should redistribute the pigments completely.

Great polish December 14, 2014
Reviewer: Nancy Frank from Melbourne, FL United States  
I fell in love with this when I saw it on my computer, and I must say, the computer doesn't do it justice. This is so pretty. It applies is fantastic. I haven't worn it yet, but everything I have purchased from this brand is terrific.
Everyone needs it!!!
