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!

Orly Monster Mash Swatch

23 Sep

Today I have a swatch of Orly’s Monster Mash from the Halloween 2012 Spellbound Collection. It’s probably my favorite of the 3 I picked up, which is odd because I’m not usually a fan of greens. But, I do love glitter 😀

Monster Mash is a green holo top coat glitter with hexagon, bar, and micro glitter. All the glitter has blue/green/yellow holo effect and it’s so gorgeous. Instead of layering it over black or white, I picked another green.

I chose Sinful Colors HD Nails. It’s just a regular shiny green. I almost matched these too almost too perfectly because the glitter didn’t show up that well against the green except in the sunlight. I actually swatch all of my polish on nail wheels, so instead of just showing you guys Monster Mash on my nails, I also snapped a pic of it on my wheel.

This is 2 coats of Monster Mash over a white/creamy “nail”. The orange color next to it is Right Amount of Evil, from the same collection.

This is 1 coat of Monster Mash over 3 coats of HD Nails. The formula on this was fine, the glitter kept wanting to clump together but it was an easy fix. HD Nails was a bit sheer at first but at 3 coats it evened out. The dry time on these were both great. That’s surprising because usually drugstore brands take forever to dry. I think Monster Mash is such a gorgeous color. But, next time I’ll layer it over a different color, maybe white.

Ulta Haul!

22 Sep

So this post is super late… I took these pictures and meant to post them last Sunday but first of all my camera would not connect to my computer so I couldn’t upload anything. Also, it may have something to do with me playing Borderlands 2 for hours on end all week…. 🙂

Anyway, I went shopping at the mall last Saturday and how can a shopping spree be complete without stopping by Ulta to pick up a few things? I was soooo excited when I saw what they had there. They recently stocked all their Halloween polishes! 😀 Halloween is my favorite holiday and some of my favorite polishes too!

So, here’s a quick haul of what I bought!

Pictured above is (right to left): R.I.P, Right Amount of Evil, Monster Mash. These 3 are from the Halloween 2012 Spellbound Collection.

I also picked up a bottle of Flip Flop Fantasy. It’s totally a summer neon color which I should’ve picked up earlier this summer but I resisted until now… which was a bad idea cause I can’t really wear it until next summer… 😦

I have been looking for this forever and I finally found it! Actually I almost missed it because they put it right next to the check out on the bottom of a shelf! This is OPI’s Halloween mini set : So So Skullicious. It came with 4 colors: Hi, Pumpkin!, A-rose from the Dead, Mourning Glory, and Candlelight as well as a set of nail decals.

The last thing I bought was the OPI 2012 Pink of Hearts set. It came with (right to left): You Glitter Be Good to Me and I Think in Pink.
