Halloween is almost done for normal mortals. But that doesn't mean there isn't some awesomeness that you can sneak out before the door closes on the best season ever. Firecracker Lacquer has a tiny trio that is so glamorous and unassuming you can wear it well into winter without anyone knowing you are still sporting some spooktacular shades.
This topper is a delicate mix of black and white hexes tossed with some fabulous holo shards. Somehow it is chaotic and refined all at the same time. I used one coat (well, one and a half on my middle finger) over Beating Death and it reminds me of some sort of formal costume. I am now wishing I had tried it over Pumpkin All The Things...maybe a gradient is in my future?
Pumpkin All the Things
This is a just-this-side-of-neon orange cream. It reminds me of a racecar shade, and I kinda love it on me. But this one gets an asterisk, sadly. We have had the wackiest weather, and it is making all of my polish behave stupidly. Creams are definitely suffering, mainstream and indie alike. I ended up finally having to thin this one out in order to get it to behave. Once I added a few drops and gave it a shake, it performed like I dreamed it would, and I only needed two coats + Seche Vite for the pictures below.
Do you need a fuchsia-leaning-bright-fucking-slap-you-in-the-face purple? Of course you do. Of course. This wild shade is such a sneaky sneak shade, and I am in love with it. It has that special skunk smell...you know the one. The one that means you are about to wear something amazing. This is amazing. If not for the wacky weather, I think I might have been able to swing one coat here...instead I needed two + SV.
This trio is just amazing, and such a nice variation from the normal sparkly glittery Halloween offerings we see elsewhere. Not that I don't love and adore them sparklies...but I like to pair simple and loud, and its nice to have an indie option! What about you? What polish would you pair with these shades? Let me know below!

Never would I have put Batty over Beating Death, but ohmygod does it work well!ReplyDelete
I wish I knew what causes the creams to thicken in humidity. We're on such opposite ends of the humid spectrum, you and I.
I love the cremes in this collection especially! The colors are so cutesy Halloweeny, like costumes for little kids. I can just dive into the shininess in your pictures.ReplyDelete
I love those cremes- so vibrant! I'm excited to be seeing more great indie cremes. 1 and 2 coats makes me a happy camper.ReplyDelete

I especially like Beating Death and I loooove the way you paired it. And yes, it would look awesome over the pumpkin shade as well ;)ReplyDelete
