(promotional samples ahead)

Today I have a good chunk of a beautiful collection from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics being sold via M of Hope, which is a boutique catering to women going through cancer treatments and their caregivers.

I Wish You the Berry Best
This is the perfect cool cranberry holo. It is practically opaque in one coat, though I used two for these pictures because of my crazy-bright lights. It has a strong linear rainbow, and I wish that I lived somewhere sunnier because it is show-stopping on a sunny afternoon.

Keep That Fire Burning
A delightful carrot orange holo filled with multichrome flakes. This polish is amazing. I used one coat plus a layer of Seche Vite for the pictures below, and I could not believe it. The holo in this one is more scattered, but it is still very pronounced. I can see this being part of a great Fall inspired manicure.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road
Are you always on the look-out for unique yellows? Well, over at CNC, 2015 seems to be the year for them. This is a citron yellow jelly-ish scattered holo with multichrome and iridescent flakes dancing around.  I think this will be an amazingly fun and off-beat shade for winter and early spring. I used two thin coats plus SV for the pictures below.

Just When the Caterpillar Thought The World was Over
I am officially convinced that Emily does emerald green the best out of everyone on earth, and I dare anyone to prove otherwise. This cool emerald scattered holo is filled with multichrome flakes. Setting it apart from your average green is a satiny almost metallic finish to the green, which makes me think of Christmas ribbons. I used two coats plus SV for these pictures.

You're a Plum! Thank You!
I had this shade in an eyeshadow back in the late 90s. It was one of my favorites, so I am quite partial to this shade. This is a medium true blue with a purply duochrome flash. It has a liberal layer of holo glitter, and is crazy sparkly in just about every light source I encountered. I used two thin coats plus a layer of SV and I ended up with a iron-strong and glassy finish.

No One Fights Alone
Do you want to sparkle, because this is how you sparkle. This warm greenish teal has holo pigment and holo glitter suspended in Emily's signature flawless formula. I used two coats plus SV below, and I felt like a teal disco ball...but in a good way.

These polishes are inspired by fighters of all sorts. It is a hard fight, and finding people who truly understand is more difficult than finding that perfect nude polish. If you or someone you know if fighting, check out the shop and see if maybe there is something there that can make the fight a little easier.

In the meantime, which shade in this epic rainbow do you love the most? I think I Wish You The Berry Best is just...well...the best. Especially with the holidays looming!
