Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Crystal Horizons

Emily from Carpe Noctem is a witch. I swear it. You ever see a polish and think "Oh yeah, that's pretty. Not fancy...just pretty" and then apply it and realize you are so wrong? Yeah...I do that all the time, especially with her shades. Today's offering is no exception.

This shade is so...bright. It is a glowing metallic aqua blue holo with a warm, subtle shift and a ridiculous amount of holo glitter. It is thick and sturdy, but at the same time smooth and silky. It applies wonderfully streak-free and flawlessly opaque in two coats. I thought for sure I was going to have to sponge that last coat on to kill the lines...but no. This polish needs no help from me. And for those who fear blues (like me. They stain me like crazy) you will be happy to know that this removed easily and stain-free. Do you hear that? I think it's angels singing...

Obligatory slightly blurred flash photo here. The sparkle is like a rainbow reflected in a tropical sea. I want my hair to be this color...again. Wait, no I don't. Well...a little. Ok, I'm officially useless in the face of this shade.

Emily has been whipping up some small-batch shades recently, in an effort to stretch her creative wings and do some really interesting one-off things like this. I am really enjoying this idea, and I hope it continues throughout 2016. Come join the Fan Group so you can keep up on all the happenings!
