It is no secret that I am in love with Emily of Carpe Noctem Cosmetics. She was one of my very first indies and will always have a special place in my heart. Her friendly nature and easily accessible presence in the fangroup have made a lot of other folks fall for her too. Little did we know, she loved us all dearly right back. In fact, she was making polish inspired by some lucky ladies! And let me tell you, when that girl decides to go all out...well, lets just say that all of our wallets are going to hurt in 2016.
Because She Danced to Space Jam
This shade was inspired by my darling dear Jenalyn and it is fabulous. You guys know how I feel about fuchsias...so I will not wax too poetic about it. Suffice to say, it is amazing. Two thin coats and I was happy as a clam.
This shade was inspired by the lovely Schette, everyone's favorite European indie blogger. It is a deep-but-soft periwinkle blue holo with a gold underflash, holo glitter, and multichrome flakes. The formula is the standard magic jelly CNC holo formula: just this side of creamy. I used two thin coats + SV for the pictures below.
My Nurse Has Sparkles
This shade was inspired by the lovely Ali T. It is a cacaphony of awesome. I can't even describe it. Purple glitter, holo, red, blue, violet micro glitters....sigh. It is magic. It has that ethereal squish that Emily does so well, and I only needed two coats for the pictures below.
Classy as Fuck
This glorious deep red shade was inspired by the Polished Hippy. It is a deep, vibrant red holo filled with holo sparks and glitters. It has the slighted pinkish-red flash at certain angles and a warm blood-red at others. It applies like a dream and I used two thin coats + SV for the pictures below.
Who Puts Sticks Up Their Butts
This pale warm mint is inspired by my salty soul mate Cate of AlltheGreenPolish on instagram. It is the perfect color for her, and I can't wait to see it on her angry little fingers. It is a soft minty holo with multichrome flakes and I used two normal coats + SV for the pictures below.
This mysterious deep green is inspired by Jenny. It is a jelly-ish holo filled with holo glitter and silver flakes. It also has a soft warm green flash at certain angles and applies like a silk dress. I used just two thin coats + SV for these pictures.
It looks like Emily and Carpe Noctem are starting 2016 with a real bang. If this is what she is starting the year with...what the hell does she possibly have in store for us later? I can't wait to find out.
Because She Danced to Space Jam is screaming my name!!! :)ReplyDelete
I can hear it from here.Delete
I got two of these in the preorder, can't wait for them to come!!!ReplyDelete
My husband always says I am so hard to shop for and I just don't get it. He could just buy me this and I would be so thrilled!ReplyDelete
right? He just wasn't trying!Delete
Because She Danced to Space Jam is so gorgeous. Holy crap. It has so much dimension and definition in that finish.ReplyDelete
pictures will never do it justice.Delete
What a cool idea! I love My Nurse has Sparkles & Who Puts Sticks up their Butts :)ReplyDelete
those are both amazing.Delete
Come to Mama! Classy as Fuck and Orion are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
O.M.G. Space Jam is everything!ReplyDelete
This entire collection is stunningReplyDelete
it really is. What a way to start the new year.Delete
I love the greens and the purples but not the pink and red. My favorites are Because She Danced to Space Jam and Madame Doudou. I don't know if I would wear Because She Danced to Space Jam and I don't know WHY but I buy these colors and then end up not wearing them often. Madame Doudou though!!! I LOOOOOOVE these shades and always end up loving them all on my nails. My Nurse Has Sparkles is a great color in the bottle but I always end up disliking how they look with my skin tone which is sad because I still always buy these shades. And that's the end of my super long opinion on these, lol.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I buy polish just because it looks lovely in the bottle. I admit it.Delete
Because She Danced to Space Jam and Orion might be the reasons I am trying this brand SOON! Like woah, these are amazing.ReplyDelete
I want to see Space Jam on you. Like yesterday.Delete
These are all lovely. Not heard of this brand before.ReplyDelete
be afraid for your wallet then. CNC is addictive.Delete
I can't even pick a favorite - these all need to come home with me!ReplyDelete
they are all so amazing.Delete
Oh my. This whole collection is incredible!ReplyDelete
it really, really isDelete
This is the brand to watch in 2016, IMO.ReplyDelete
I definitely agree. I think Emily is making a point to shake the earth this year.Delete
Just flipping gorge!ReplyDelete
