31 Days of Halloween-Day 11: OPI Vampire State Building

This is not necessarily a Halloween polish–I just included it because of the name. However, it *was* released for the New York City Fall/Winter collection in 2000. 😉

It’s not that easy to come by anymore. In fact, I remember picking it out of a discontinued bin at my local beauty supply shop back in the early 2000’s. It even survived the Great Polish Purge a few years back (mostly because I loved the name, and it’s a really a great vampy). Without further ado…

Ahhh… the color of fresh blood. That’s what this reminds me of. LoL

Still trying to tweak the new watermark on an older photo lol

Vampire State Building is a rich, blood-red jelly that’s chock-full of chemicals… so it goes on almost perfectly. 😉

This is three coats with a coat of Seche Vite.

Honestly? For me, this polish holds more sentimental value than anything. And it’s pretty badass, IMHO.

Enjoy!

P.S. Don’t forget to enter my Halloween haiku giveaway!

 

NOTD: Barielle Elle’s Spell

This is the mani I am sporting for the premier of the 4th season of True Blood.

I’ve read the books (and currently am reading the new one). I sometimes have a hard time divorcing the show from the books because they deviate–a lot. But I really enjoy the show for what it is. And I don’t even has to ask who loves to look at butt-nekkid Eric.  😀

See you after the show!

Blast from the Past: China Glaze Stroll

Ancient blurry goodness!

Originally released in the 2009 Retro Diva collection, China Glaze Stroll is a vampy wine shade with gold glitter.

I really love vampy shades, even though I don’t own many of them. I should totally remedy that.
