Sea Witch + VooDoo

I've really been whipping through the Halloween polishes…believe me, there are more to come!  Because apparently I MUST HAVE ALL THE HALLOWEEN POLISH!!  Haha.   This combination mani is actually an older summer color and a brand new Halloween color.  

Starting with the undies…Wet n Wild Sea Witch.  My friend Michelle over at Emhkay Nails found a display of the Mermaid's Cove Collection which came out in the summer 2011.  So she kindly picked a few colors up for me!  Thanks so much Michelle - these colors are proving to be absolutely gorgeous!!  Back to Sea Witch.  SW is a jaw dropping polish.  It's a purple-blue (blurple) color with blue shimmer.  It went on very smooth and level in 2 coats.  I loved this color and plan to wear it again on it's own.  One thing I did notice was that it was ever so slighlty brush stroke-y.  So be cautions during application.

I then used 1 coat of CrowsToes VooDoo on top.  VooDoo was recently released and from what I gather will be available year round - not just for Halloween.  I adored VooDoo because it makes me think of New Orleans.  I love New Orleans (end of story).  This polish is slightly reminiscent of Mardi Gras for me as well as Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog.  VooDoo is a very fun mix of glitter shapes in 2 main colors: purple and orange.  I see hexs, bars and squares (the squares appear to be matte).  There is also a combination of teal, purple and orange micro glitter.   I didn't find VooDoo to be thick or difficult to use.  1 dip of the brush gave me a great amount of glitter as well as a varied assortment of shapes - no fishing necessary.  I used 1 coat of VooDoo, 1 coat of Gelous, 1 coat of topcoat to finish it off.  I was left with very glossy, smooth and shiny nails.  

Here's a pic of Dr. Facilier…does VooDoo remind you of him too?

You can't get Wet N Wild Sea Witch unless you happen upon a random display with older polishes or find it on ebay.  CrowsToes is available at etailers: Overall Beauty and Llarowe.
