Fantasy Makers Halloween Collection 2012
Picture this: Your walking down the aisle at CVS, and you run into a girl, who looks about 7 month pregnant with a 3 year old in a cart. Trying her hardest, jumping up and down to get the last polish in the nail polish display, which just so happens to be on the top shelf (mind you this girl is about 4'9) You see her struggle, she grabs it, and has the biggest damned smile on her face like she has just accomplished the friggin' olympics. Yup, that's right. You pictured me. I was on a mission. I had gone to three different CVS's with no luck, all of them sold it. I went to my last stop and frantically scowered the aisles. And there it was, staring me in the face, the two polishes to the front were Once Upon A Time, and Nails in a Coffin. I stood on my tip toes and there it was, laying on it's side was Rest in Pieces. I jumped up and down till I finally grabbed it. I felt so accomplished. To be honest, never in my life have I ever wanted a collection this badly. For $2 a bottle, who couldn't?! (I opted out of the glow in the dark, because I have two other glow in the dark polishes which I have never touched) I went to the checkout and practically skipped to the car with my son. This was the best day of my life.
Enough about my adventure, let's see some polishes! First up I have is Rest in Pieces. A black jelly base with purple shimmer throughout. My pictures are a little blurry but I was trying my hardest to get the shimmer to be shown in pictures.
This polish surprisingly had GREAT formula, 2 coats was perfect with a coat of Orly Sec N Dry to top it off.
Next in the line up is Nails in the Coffin. A black jelly base with bronze and silver shimmer throughout, this one was really hard to photograph. You'll see half of the pictures are unfocused and the others are not, I was trying to get the shimmer to show thouroghly. I tried so I apologize if you can't really see it. This is two coats with a coat of Orly Sec N Dry.
I saved my favorite for last, Rest in Pieces. A black jelly base packed full of red hexes and small red glitters. I loved this and wore it as a full mani after I got my swatches done. This is 3 coats with a coat of Orly Sec N Dry.
Will you be grabbing any of these polishes this year? They were a joy to work with and so glad they were added to my collection.
