Did I scare ya? Collect yourself off the floor and prepare yourself for the second Halloween trio from Celestial Cosmetics - this is Halloween Story!
Neon orange with black holo microglitter, shifty little flakes and a gold sheen. Giving me Jack o'Lantern night light vibes with that huge punch of neon and sparks every time you move an inch! I have been all about the orange lately and this is killing me and bringing me back to life!
This had a nice formula, slightly thick but still easy to work with and only needed two coats to be totally opaque. It dries down with a slight satin finish as neons tend to do, and is a bit thirsty so use a nice juicy top coat with this one!.
CHASES THE FAIRY
Neon green jelly with black shards.
Neon. Green. Jelly.
We all know about my endless love for green, but it's not often I get to bathe in the ragged badassery of a good chunky shard glitter. I fucking love this polish. It screams dollar store Halloween decorations and toxic ooze and I am living for it.
The formula is a bit different - it's almost sticky, which I thought would be awful but it seems to tame the shards so they all sit nicely and spread evenly. I did 3 coats for my swatches, and while there's a hint of VNL there in photos I didn't really notice in real life. I'd recommend a thicker top coat for this as well due to the shards, even though they were quite well behaved.
INTO THE BLOOD WOODS
Teal crelly with cherry micro glitter and rose gold flakes. Definitely more subdued than the previous two, but beautiful and really quite unique. It's an unusual colour combination and I like how the glitter and flakes play off each other without being drowned out by the beautiful base colour.
Again I found the formula a little thicker than I'm used to, but it was still easy to apply and didn't cause me any grief. My swatch shows 3 coats and top coat.
The Halloween Story trio will be available from 9am ACST Sunday 25th September (check here for your time zone!)
