Morgan Taylor Trick 'r Treats

Morning lovelies!  I'm really in the groove with Halloween posts.  I think it's because I'm having fun typing these up (or swatching them) while watching scary movies.  Today was a "rest" day so I've done nothing both both of those things until I need to head over to the school for my library volunteer shift.  So today I have the super cutesy Morgan Taylor Trick 'r Treats collection.  I really like these mini kits because they are paired well and are great for the holiday.  This 4-piece mini pack is available now for $15.  Ok, let's jump in and see what they look like.

OPI + Preen.Me; Iceland Collection

Evening all!  Are you a horror movie/Halloween/spooky fan like I am?  I am literally always glued to ghost hunter shows and watch scary movies nightly.  Often I watch them alone because my hubster isn't a fan.  My kids would happily watch with me but I now it's too much for them at their ages (11, 9, 6).  So today I was in the house alone and one of the kids today stared playing music...out of the blue...I've never even heard one of their toys play this song before.  It went off for a good minute and I sat there wide eyed wondering WTF is happening.  Nothing happened again.  But of course that didn't deter me from turning on a scary show.  Anyways, that has absolutely nothing to do with this post.  So I'm done rambling about myself.  Let's talk about the OPI Iceland collection.  HELLO fabulous!  I was super impressed with the colors I this collection, lots of dusty cremes, a couple amazing shimmers, awesome colors for Fall that are both traditional and non.  I received these from Preen.me to review, they have a great website that helps you create all kids of "looks" with info about so many different beauty products.  You can pick up this collection at your local beauty supply stores.  Let's jump in and check them out!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer; Something is Coming Collection

Evening dears!  How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty good, a mix of busy and relaxing.  I'm watching Halloween shows with the kids right now.. Aside from that I am just catching up on my blog, getting ready to do some swatching.  Tonight I have the new BEGL Halloween collection for you.  It's inspired by a great show, Stranger Things.  Season 1 was so good, I can't wait for season 2!  Did you watch Stranger Things on Netflix?  If you're a fan of spooky and haven't seen this yet I highly suggest you set aside a day for Netflix and chill before the new season starts!  The Something is Coming collection will be available on 10/24 at 3:30pm EDT, prices range from $8 to $12.  This is a limited release launch and it's unclear if Julie will re-release them again in the future.  One thing I am sure of is that BEGL reformulated their base and you'll get the same great coverage with a thinner polish to work with.  I really liked the new formula and found it very easy to work with. Ok, let's jump in and check it out!

Evening lovelies!  Hope you had a nice Wednesday.  It's my kids short day so I get to spend a little more time with them.  Since we skipped gymnastics and soccer was canceled we went on a bike ride around our neighborhood to look at houses with Halloween decorations up.  A few were done up, but most only had up a few things, a pumpkin, spider webs.  We'll have to do it again closer to Halloween to see if things got more festive and spooky.  Since we are talking about Halloween I thought I'd share the newest China Glaze collection.  Happily Never After is the Halloween 2017 collection and it's pretty fantastic!  You can pick these up now at your local Ulta or Sallys.  Alright, let's jump in and check them out!
