Tower of Terror Inspired Duo from Sweet Heart Polish & Finger Lickin' Lacquer

Good morning readers!  If you follow me on Instagram you know that I teased you with some unnamed macros yesterday.  Well today I am showing you full swatches of said polishes!  This is the Tower of Terror Inspired Duo, which consists of A Most Uncommon Elevator by Finger Lickin' Lacquer and Shadow and Substance by Sweet Heart Polish.  Both of the polishes in this duo are pretty amazing!  The Tower of Terror dup will be available to purchase on Saturday 9/23 at NOON PST.  Each shop will have the duo available in limited quantity so get there right on the dot or you might miss out!

Up first is A Most Uncommon Elevator from Finger Lickin' Lacquer.  Of course this is a nod to the actual elevator in which the "incident" happened.  This is a "deep pink jelly with gold and pink holographic glitter and a dash of glow in the dark glitter thrown in."  This is one gorgeous jelly polish!  A Most Uncommon Elevator is so spicy and sparkly and shiny!  The deep pink shade is really beautiful yet my pictures are showing more red than the actual pink shade.  The gold holo glitters shine though for just the right among of bling.  The coverage was really great, as was the formula.  I used 3 coats, 1 layer of topcoat, and had no visible nail line.  I did check out A Most Uncommon Elevator and the glow in the dark looks a lot like the opening sequence of The Twilight Zone - a bunch of glowing stars against a black sky.  Unfortunately it was nearly impossible to capture in a picture so you'll just have to get it yourself to see!

This is Shadow & Substance by Sweet Heart Polish.  Shadow & Substance is brought up in part of the opening narration that sets the scene for the Tower of Terror ride.  It's all about the fear of anticipation here - what's unknown, what's tangible and what's a trick of the eye (or real).  It's all very Twilight Zone-y.  Described as an "almost burgundy holographic duo chrome polish that shifts from burnt orange to a gold color with gold flakes."  This color is amazing!  I loved that it looks like 2 different polishes depending on the lighting you are in - metallic or holographic.  The formula and application of Shadow & Substance were both fabulous.  Creamy and opaque.  I used 2 coats for perfect coverage and no topcoat.
