Halloween Mani

I'm getting over the flu. Don't judge me.

Wild at Heart

I really like Color Club polishes. They're relatively cheap. The brushes are a decent size the polishes I have tried glide on effortlessly and don't make too much of a mess. Even for a spaz like me!

I thought this was going to be a more holographic purple along the lines of China Glaze's LOL but without the horrible chipping.

But, it's a very sublte holo. Still really pretty though. It wore great, not a single chip and came off with ease.

Who wants a little Hard Candy!?

Searching through Wal-Mart's website, I determined there are two in my area that are carrying the Hard Candy line. I made my way to the closest one...and lo and behold!

I practiced a bit of self-restraint, and limited myself to the two polishes you see here, a liquid eyeliner and a gloss. All of it so far is AWESOME!

I like both of these. They applied awesomely! The brush is the right length and fullness. I like Mr. Right, but it's really similar to other colors that I have, namely NYC West Village. Mr. Wrong is neat, I don't think I have anything like it.

My first mani with the famouse Emerald Sparkle...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm pretty!

Sally's Exclusive - I found it!! Fortune Teller...

I took a trip down to Orange County/Middletown. While I was there, had my GPS search for Sally's, the first one I found had a full display of Fortune Teller! Yay! I couldn't find it any where near me.
I like it. It's certainly different from anything else I own. It looks very "halloween". Black with firey orange flaky/glitter. My only issue is that it dried very rough. I used Seche Vite over it, which usually seems to smooth things out, but it's still very bumpy and rough. It's wearing really well, so far....wondering how hard taking it off will be!

Shiny, Glittery Stuff!

Milani "Fairy Tale"
I fell in looooove with this, the first time I saw it at CVS. I want to get all of the Halloween Milani's, but, damn! They are $4.49 at CVS. Seems a bit much...

I'm sure this is similar to a ton of other blue glitters, but it's still really preeeetty!!

Misa - Toxic Seduction

I have heard a lot about this green. It's not bad, but I am not all that excited about it. it applied really well though. This is two coats. There's a deep shimmer to it, but it's still subtle. It's pretty but I find Misa polishes take forever to dry! Even with Seche Vite. Wear has been pretty good.

Let's take a stroll, shall we?

From China Glaze's fall "Retro" collection...Stroll:

I was afraid it would be a little TOO glittery red, but it's not! It's a darker red with a nice strong shimmer.

Hard to capture it just has been gloomy so no good sunlight either...

Wearability hasn't been the greatest. Started to see tipwear pretty quick. It's also very sheer. This was 3 coats. Probably could have used a 4th.
I thought I should post a picture after 4 days of wear...after the initial tip wear, it actually held up really well. Not a single chip! I would have kept it, but I needed a switch!
