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.
