Good evening and happy weekend! I've decided weekends are just as bad as weekdays because I never get to sleep in. And if I do get to sleep in, well, I never do. And today I am overhaul cleaning and such as I prepare the house for a birthday party AND Halloween. So what better time to take a break to share an upcoming Fall/Halloween movie inspired collection with you! The Girly Bits Hocus Pocus collection is totally fabulous and made up of deep and murky shades and the names are all just perfect! PS - I totally love Hocus Pocus and will watch it at least a half dozen times every October. If you have been living under a rock here's a BuzzFeed that highlights the awesomeness that is Hocus Pocus. Now the details you really want to know...the Hocus Pocus collection is available on Monday 10/19 at noon EST. The entire set will be available for $84 CAD for a limited time, then it goes up to $91 CAD. The polishes will also be available individually for $12-$14 CAD. Now let's look at polish!

Up first I have Amok! Amok! Amok! This is an amethyst ultra holo with slight blue to purple shift. My exact words in my notebook are "WOWOWOW!" This polish is a real stunner and a must have for all the purple/holo lovers out there. The formula and application were both amazing. 2 easy coats and no topcoat needed.
Witch, I'm Fabulous (LOL) is a multichrome flakie polish with a shift of pink, blue, purple and gold. There's also chartreuse, purple and gold holo mocroglitter in the mix. What a faboosh color for a diva like Winifred Sanderson! This blingy glitter bomb had a good formula and applied very easily. I was pleased with the glitter payoff. You can use anything from this particular collection as a perfect base color and then you can get away with 1 coat of Witch, I'm Fabulous. I used 3 coats and finished with 2 layers of topcoat.

Goodbye-bye is an army green creme. Simple as that. Unique color, perfect formula. I only needed 2 coats for full coverage. I did feel it dried with a slight matte finish so I slathered on a layer of topcoat to enhance the shine.
Dead Man's Toe is one of my favorites in the collection. Again, unique and gorgeous color and then that pink shimmer....swoon! I'd happily sport a dead man's toe necklace if it looked like this polish! This is a used army green crelly with subtle to pink to gold shimmer. Loved the formula on this one too. It was definitely a full coverage coverage polish, very creamy crelly. I used 2 coats and a layer of topcoat.

I Am Calm! is another favorite of mine. It's a deep wine jelly with fine glowing red/gold shimmer. This is a real vampy beauty! It's actually the one I ended up wearing as a full mani once I finished swatching. But you know I am a huge fan of dark reds, especially in this time of the year. This is probably one of the nicest jelly polishes I have put on, the formula was superb and the application was perfect. I used 2 coats of full coverage and no topcoat.
Moving along, here's On Toast! This is a smoked out navy blue holo with violet flakes. It's such a dark blue it borders on charcoal but you can definitely see that it's blue. This had an awesome formula that was so easy to use and apply. I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
And rounding out the collection is another glorious creme - Yabos. I mean really, who doesn't love some nice yabos? No need to be embarrassed Max. This is a rich, smokey purple and it's really quite bee-you-tiful. The formula and application were lovely. I used 3 coats for full coverage, keep in mind I am a "thin" painter and don't like working with too much polish at once, so it's easily a 2-coater for others. No topcoat used.
