Baroness X Ecto Set • A Limited Edition Trio

Baroness X does jelly glitters like no other. If you scroll back through my tag, you'll see some really neat combos of glitter shapes and colors...and a nice combo of UV reactive colors. So none of us should be surprised that this limited edition.

Baroness X Ecto Set

Overview
This set is the perfect gift for that green lover in your life. It contains three hauntingly beautiful items just in time for the Ghostbusters series reboot. It was one of my favorites as a kid, and I am very glad to see it again. The glitters and holo in the polish is lovely and twinkling. It also looks amazing over white. The Acetone Antidote is amazing, and I think I'm hooked on this whole concept. The soap is, as I have said before...awesome. 

EctoFizz
This is a brilliant neon lime jelly filled with holo glitters, black circles and hexes, and shimmering holo pigment. I definitely look at my fingers and think "He slimed me, Ray". I used three normal coats on my index/middle/pinkie here, followed by a layer of Seche Vite. It dried surprisingly glossy, even without the SV. 

For my ring finger, I layered  two thin coats over Essence Wild White Ways. It does make it more vivid...but I think I like it alone best.

Acetone Antidote (pictured here with two other scents)
I think I have a new favorite thing. This particular scent is called StayPuft, and it is exclusive (for now, at least) to this trio. StayPuft is a warm vanilla, like delicious cake batter. I have never tried any sort of additive for acetone, but I am definitely going to be checking this concept out further. I absolutely love how moisturized my cuticle/fingertip area is after removing polish, and there is no trace of the icky white caste that acetone is known for. The recommended dosage is one vial per 6-8 ounces of acetone, but I haven't tried dumping the full thing in. I generally used an eye-dropper to add the antidote to the acetone in my trusty shot glass.

A full review, including the ratios I used, is coming soon.

The Jiggly Jelly Soap has been reviewed before and you can read about it right here. I even made a video of the jiggle, which amuses me to no end. It is good to be entertained...especially by yourself.

I am forgetful. I try to snap my pictures of UV glows at night...but I forgot. So here is what it looks like in my overlit garage super-professional workspace + UV light. It is definitely fun if you enjoy a good black lighting!

According to the shop, there are still a few of these sets left! I think it is definitely worth grabbing, and at $15USD you really can't beat the price. What do you think? Do you have a soft spot for that sweet, glowing green?

  2. Thinking I need the acetone additive, with as many many polish changes as I do, I'm sure my nails and cuticle would love it.
