31 Days of Halloween- Day 25: Fright Night Claw Polish VooDoo

Ok, it says “Spellbinding Top Coat,” but I declare B.S. LoL

It’s really a red base slammed full of red microglitter. There is no “top coat” about this one, unless you’re layering it over Bloodshed or another red. But by that point, you might as well just use a few coats of this one by itself.

This is three coats, no top coat.

Another strike against the “top coat” B.S.–it doesn’t dry shiny enough for my taste.

So, I slapped on a coat of ChG Matte Magic. I’ll show it!

Meh… it kind of loses something in the translation. LoL


31 Days of Halloween- Day 13: Fantasy Makers Purple Potion

Good morning πŸ˜€

Today I’m displaying one of the new Fantasy Makers polishes (the cute, tombstone-shaped ones) that I found at Walgreens last week.

Fantasy Makers is made by Wet ‘n Wild. They have a slew of other Halloween-related makeup goodies such as glitters, lipsticks and eyeliners.

This is Purple Potion, which is purple microglitter in a black jelly base.

It dries to a satin-type finish, so if that’s not your thing, I’d just wear it with a topcoat. Here you see it with a coat of SV.

My only real complaint was the brush. It was pretty moppy, awkwardly shaped and hard to control. It could just be my bottle.

31 Days of Halloween-Day 5: China Glaze Zombie Zest

Welcome to Day 5 of 31 Days of Halloween. I am your hostess with the mostess…

Today I have for you another polish which was released for Halloween 2010–Zombie Zest by China Glaze. The name of this polish sounds completely and unequivocally gross (think about zesting a citrus fruit… now the zest of zombies? *shudder* And what would you make with zombie zest anyhow??!).

But I digress. On to the polish:

Zombie Zest (gack) has a sheer orangey-brownish-green base (I imagine this is how putrescence looks) packed full of green microglitter that flashes teal and gold in certain lights.

It’s probably the most gross polish I own. And I love it. Because it’s Halloween related. πŸ˜€

I can be nutters at least once a year, right?

NOTD: China Glaze CG In The City

Hi there. πŸ™‚

Today I have for you one of the polishes from the Metro Collection released for Fall of this year.

I know in this shot, it looks like a purple glitter. However, it’s actually black, silver and copper (gold?) microglitter in a clear base.

This polish is best for layering. This is four coats, and it’s still pretty sheer.

It will eventually build into opaqueness… if you have more patience than I do.

And I always recommend using the tinfoil method to remove glitters. Otherwise, you’ll be sitting there all day trying to get the fine glitter off every inch of your fingers.


Pink Wednesdays: Finger Paints Pink Imagination

I wake up singing the weirdest stuff. This morning it was “Music of the Night” from Phantom of the Opera. I don’t know why… it just happens.

Anyhow, I picked up this pretty thing on sale at Sally’s this past week (plus I had a 15% off coupon). This is Finger Paints Pink Imagination layered over white (because it’s pretty sheer).

It’s a baby pink with (what looks to be) pink microglitter.

I lurves it, but it seems to be begging for some stamping. Maybe one day, I will learn how to do that. πŸ˜€
