Glam Polish Halloween Duo

It's nearly Halloween, that means it it time for a creepy Halloween duo from Glam Polish. I love Halloween. It was my favorite time of year when I lived in America. I think these two polish capture the beautiful and sparkly essence of Halloween.

"Snoopy The Witch" - This is a super cute glitter topper with various white, black, purple, and orange glitter, including some little stars and dots. The purple and orange glitters in this just scream Halloween. I dabbed one coat over "Deathly Holo" by Glam Polish (Exclusive to Mei Mei's and unfortunately already sold out).

I also swatched this one over a soft green called "Earth Angel" by Colour Gossip. I love it over this base as all the colours show up beautifully and the green base fits with the spooky Halloween theme.

"Frakenslime 2014" - A recreation of the very popular "Frakenslime" from last years Halloween polishes. My favourite thing about this one is that it has the same theme as the one from last year but has evolved in the same way that the Glam Polishes have evolved over the past year. Over the past year there has been a strong focus on more holographic polishes. This special Halloween still has the same colour concepts from last year but now holographic! I love the purple glitter in the green base. I would love to see more holo shades but with different coloured glitters in it like this one. For my swatch I used three thin coats plus a glossy top coat.

Cast A Spell Part 2: The Magic Continues by Glam Polish

The most popular Glam Polish collection is back! Cast a Spell part 2 - The Magic Continues! Nine sparkling new shades make up part 2 of this collection, all with very similar formulas to the first collection. Since the formulas for each shade is pretty much identical I won't repeat myself 9 times for each swatch, instead I'll say it just once. Each shade is a stunning holo packed with various size holo glitters. Each of my swatches is two to three coats (depending on how heavy handed I was at the time) with a glossy top coat and all photo are taken in direct sunlight for maximum holo effect. I have heaps of photos to share as I just love this collection so much and the shades are so sparkly they can't be captured in just one or two photos! Part of what I love about this collection (besides the holo glitter) is the variety of colours and they all complement the first part of the collection perfectly. 

"Bewitched"








"Pentacle"







"Wicked"








"Sorceress"








"Cauldron"







"Warlock"








"Elixir"







'Wicca"








"Banished"








This collection will be available for pre-order tomorrow (September the 17th) from Glam Polish.  With shipping to Australia and USA. The official release date for this collection in the 24th of September.

I also have some Halloween nail art coming up very soon featuring some of these shades!
