Good evening boys and ghouls. Tomorrow is October 1st and I am very excited about it. October is my favorite month. I go out of my way to watch a scary (or silly Halloween) movie every night. Do you have any traditions for this spooky month? I also love that all the indie brands come out with totally amazing Halloween collections. I've seen and shared a few already but I have more for you to peruse as well, including my post tonight featuring Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer What Wouldn't I Do? Collection. Inspired by the movie Practical Magic - which I love and haven't seen in ages! The 4 piece + 1 LE What Wouldn't I Do? Collection will be available on October 5th at 3:30pm EDT. So let's cruise on over and check things out!
*edit: check out Ehmkay Nails to see the other 2 in this collection, Blood on the Moon and Belladonna!*
I Wished For You, Too is a purple based polish packed full of gold, blue, pink and holo shimmer. It is stunning! I Wished For You, Too had a fabulous formula and applied like a dream. The color of the polish and mixture of glitter give it a very sparkly, magical look. And it's perfect for Halloween! I used 3 coats of I Wished For You, Too and 1 layer of topcoat.
Amas Veritas Spell is a deep green jelly with blue and green metallic glitters. This is the one of the best jelly polishes I have ever used. Amas Veritas Spell was total perfection. The dark emerald green color was squishy and shiny and so easy to work with. The formula and application were both great. I used 3 coats of Amas Veritas Spell for full coverage and no topcoat.
Deathwatch Beetle was my favorite of the 3 I had to review. This is an AMAZING microglitter - full of holo, black, green, purple and orange glitters. It sparkles like crazy in the sun, yet somehow all the colors shine through. Julie really outdid herself with this one! You can use Deathwatch Beetle on it's own or over a base color - I did both ways so you could see how they both look. First I tried Deathwatch Beetle alone. I used 3 coats for full coverage and 2 layers of topcoat to keep things smooth and glossy.
Here is Deathwatch Beetle sponged on my tops over Wet N Wild Frank Is Mine, a lime green jelly from last years Wild Shine Fantasy Makers Neon Clairvoyance collection. I only needed to sponge on 1 layer of Deathwatch Beetle to reach really nice coverage. I finished this with 1 layer of topcoat.
