China Glaze Glitter Goblin Swatch

24 Oct

I was super excited when I picked up China Glaze Glitter Goblin from the Halloween 2012 Wicked Collection. I also wanted to get Make A Spectacle but they didn’t have it in stock 😦

When you pick up the bottle, the holo in it just…. wow. It’s totally amazing, pictures couldn’t capture the perfection of the holo.

The glitter is a dark orange/copper and silver holo. To be perfectly honest, I totally love this color, but when the holo doesn’t show, it’s…. not that attractive of a color in my opinion. Not ugly, just… mehh.

Actually, now that I look, I missed a couple of spots! Oops! Please ignore that…

But it’s a very chunky glitter, kinda of like the 2 glitters in the China Glaze On Safari collection, but you have to use more coats to get full coverage. This is… either 3 or 4 coats, sorry can’t remember 🙂 The formula in this was okay, sometimes the glitter liked to clump together, but it was easy to even out. It dried quickly, as most glitter bombs do! 🙂

This is definitely a unique polish! I honestly have never seen anything quite like it, especially with all that holo! It’s totally worth picking up if you can find it 🙂

Color Club Halloween 2010 Set Mani

12 Oct

As I may have mentioned before, I totally love Halloween. So I started doing Halloween themed manicures on myself basically October 1st 🙂 I also ordered a Halloween mini collection online that was actually from 2010. It’s called Bewitching from Color Club. It’s actually my first Color Club polishes, and I love them!

It came with 4 super cute colors: Bewitching (plain black creme), Charmed, I’m Sure (shimmery purple, possible dupe of OPI Ink?), Spellbound (super bright neon orange), and my favorite, Hocus Pocus (holo glitter!) The little box it came in is just so adorable!

Am I right, or am I right? 🙂

It also came with some of the nicest nail decals I’ve ever seen. They have a lot of designs to choose from and they all have little tiny gems on them in a rainbow of colors! I’ve never been a huge fan of decals but I will definitely be using them!

Here’s a closer pic of the polishes.

For today’s post I layered these two. They seemed the most unusual and fun.

I am so in love with this mani! I’ve been wearing it for 4 days now I think. The holo is so perfect indoors, probably even better than outdoors. It’s hard to tell from this pic, but there’s a LOT of holo, a lot like in the bottle. This is 1 coat of Hocus Pocus over 2 coats of Spellbound. Although, I’d like to point out that if I were to wear Spellbound alone, I’d probably need 3 coats. Honestly, I think you could wear Hocus Pocus alone too if you used 3 or 4 coats. This is actually without a top coat too, considering I’m almost out 😦 But the dry time on these are AMAZING.

Needless to say, my first impression of Color Club has totally won me over, I will be wearing another CC color soon, for sure!

NOTD- Curved Dots

7 Oct

So today I have a quick nail art post for you guys! 🙂 These didn’t really turn out the way I wanted it too, the purple glitter didn’t have enough pink and the hot pink turned out red! 😦

Left to right, these polishes are Erre Due #186, China Glaze- Flip Flop Fantasy, and Wet N Wild in Glitz. In the bottle in real life, the Erre Due polish looks totally hot pink, but I think this picture captures how it looks on the nail very well.

I would like this a lot better if I had used different colors but I still really like the way the dots are done! I’ll try it again sometime with different colors and post it for you guys 🙂
