Carpe Noctem Cosmetics is taking a deliciously moody direction for Spring and I am in love. This collection is inspired by some spooky stories, and when Emily is inspired we always end up with some magic.

Ghost Orchids for Jason
This is a pale, ethereal grayish white holo filled with multichrome flakes. The myriad of sizes in the flakes gives this shade a complex, speckled appearance which is right on-trend this spring. The formula is a little heavier than the typical CNC jelly-ish, but I still only needed two coats plus Seche Vite for these pictures.
This is a Dr Pepper colored metallic holo filled with shifting multichrome flakes. This vampy shade applies so easy and smooth, and was perfectly opaque in two coats plus Seche Vite.
This shockingly vampy indigo is too complex for words. Holo glitter, holo, multichrome flakes, a coppery flash and a super slick formula. If Space Jam had an inky sister, this shade would be it. This magical shade is deliciously opaque in two coats, and a layer of Seche Vite helps that violet glow.
This is a deep cerulean holo filled with mulitchrome flakes and a green shimmering underbelly. The best description I have come up with is liquefied mermaid. This is exactly what it is. The formula has a slightly plastic feel, but it dries ultra glossy even without topper. I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for safety.
The Laws of Nature
This toasty sable holo has a delightful pink shift and a sprinkle of holo glitter...it's hard to describe. Its neutral and flashy and awesome and I can't even. It applies a bit like a metallic, and I might blot the top layer to obliterate streaks next time. It is just flawless though, and I only needed two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these photos.
This was inspired by As For Class.
This collection is finally available for purchase today at noon eastern in the Carpeshop. I think the whole collection is required, but The Kingdom and Midnight Violence are just to unique to be allowed to pass-by. Which one is your favorite?
also, today is my youngest child's sixth birthday. She's a spooky kid, so I think this is a frighteningly appropriate post.
