Nails From the Crypt

Today I have Chirality's new collection Nails from the Crypt!

I love when they put some horror into their creations. Getting to know Amanda and Jason has let me know I am not the only one with a somewhat unhealthy horror addiction. I love the interesting creations they come up with. They always come up with creations so unique you really cant find them anywhere else. 

First up we have (S)cream Queen. 
This is Chilarity's first creme polish although I might classify it more as a crelly because it does have a little bit of a jelly consistencies. 
(S)cream Queen is a gorgeous maroon plum, I think that is how I would best describe it. 
It took 3 coats for full coverage.

I also included a picture using flash and it still looks just as gorgeous.

Next we have Cropsy.
And I have a fun story to go along with it.
"The first day at Camp Blackfoot has come to end and all of the campers and counselors have gathered around the large bonfire outside the campgrounds. Everyone was sitting around laughing and conversing while eating marshmallows. As the head counselor made his way up to the fire, everyone began to quiet down. The counselor stood there in silence, looking at each and every person around the fire. They knew what was coming and some were already getting scared. "Who's ready for a story", he asked, which was immediately met with cheers from everyone. He began talking about the camp and how much it has changed over the years, especially after....the accident. Everyone perked up immediately, wondering what accident the counselor could be referring to. He went on to talk about the foolish groundkeeper who was an angry drunk and mean to most of the young campers. Those same young campers decided to play a trick on that mean old groundskeeper, but their trick went out of control and the groundkeeper became horribly disfigured. Some of the campers began to chuckle at the idea of a disfigured monster roaming the camp. The counselor remained serious and tone; even raising his voice a little to warn the kids that the old groundskeeper swore revenge on everyone. A hush fell over the campfire. Dead branches in the distance began to snap, which made a few of the kids gasp. "He's out there....watching us.....waiting for the perfect moment to exact his revenge....and when he does....pray he doesn't come for you." Every one at the fire stared up at the counselor as he delivered each terrifying word, unaware that everyone was staring at the dark figure behind him with large shears."
 Jason and Amanda always have the best themes for their creations. 
But also there's a movie.

So Cropsy is a glitter polish in a sheer yellow base. It is full of red and yellow glitter of all shapes and sizes, giant circles, shards, hexes and teeny tiny glitters. It definitely reminds me of a campfire where all the best horror stories are told. Duh. 

Below I put two coats of Cropsy over one coat of Different Dimension Tubular.

Devil's Night is by far my favorite of the collection. It is hard to describe, almost a deep dark burgundy, almost brown but not quite but the best part is THE BLUE IRIDESCENT SHIMMER!!!!!! OMFG!!!!!!
I tried my best to capture it but it is hard. Which sucks because it is so prominent in real life. 
In the pic below you can best see it on my ring finger. This picture does no justice. But alas it was the best I could do with an iPhone.
And next we have I Got a Rock.
And we all know Chirality cant have a collection without at least one holo!

I Got a Rock is a muddy chocolate holo and it so perfect for all the cold autumn weather heading our way.
Below I used two coats and no top coat. It is so pretty and I needed a color like this in my collection. 

You can see the holo a little bit better in the picture below that I took with flash.

And last but not least we have The Stuff.

This is Chirality's first matte polish and I have to say they nailed it!
It is a gorgeous purple with little gold flakies in it.
It only took two coats for full coverage.
This is my second favorite of the collection. And it looks amazing!
Chirality did an awesome job with this collection and with introducing new finishes that we havent seen from them before. I was very impressed. 

Make sure you go and pick up this amazing new collection tomorrow on Chirality's Big Cartel store HERE and their Esty HERE. And while you are there make sure to check out their other collections including my favorite the Cereal Killer collections!

#33DC Day 3 Tape Mani

I have really liked using striping tape these days so I was excited for day three of this challenge!

I also picked up these super sweet  clockwork water decals from the bornprettystore. They look all old fashioned so I chose colors to match.

I used Lime Crime Milky Ways as a base. I then cut a massive amount little pieces of striping tape for the designs.

On the nails with the strips I used Picture Polish Demeter, Sally Hansen Bronze Ablaze and Color Club Love Em Leave Em.

On the nails I did not add the strip design I added the little clock designs. They were extremely easy to use and you can get them HERE.

I topped everything off with a top coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.
I am really pleased with this look and might leave it on for a few days. What do you guys think?

#33DC Day 2 Your Most Used Color

Day two was was too easy for me. In my whole life I polish I have had the most of a love affair with is China Glaze Riveter Rouge. 
This is the ONLY polish ever that I have had to buy a second bottle!

This is my second bottle and you can already see it is almost half way gone! That is just mind blowing considering the amount of polish I own.


I almost always Riveter Rouge on my toes. It is just an amazing color to go with my super pale skin. I recommend this color constantly. And also buy it for people all the time.

What do you guy think of this color? Love? Hate?

#33DC Day1 Dots

Time for a challenge!!
Introducing the 33 Day Challenge!!!!
This challenge is being run through Crumpet's Nail Tarts. (refer to THIS post for info)
I really didnt want to do the 31DC challenge with its love of water marble. Bleh.
I saw this on over on The Crumpet and it is not an everyday challenge. Which for me the the best part. Challenge days are Monday's Wednesday's and Friday's. So from now on I will be using the #33DC.

So Day1 is dots! And man can I just admit to all of you that my dotting tools have seen better days. I havent used them in over a year. I just never really think about dotted manicures. This is on the the reasons I love challenges so much!

Below are my colors and tools. I used Lime Crime Milky Ways, China Glaze Dance Baby, Chirality Convergance and Different Dimension Ditz.

 I start with a base of Lime Crime Milky Ways. Most nails only needed two coats but a couple needed three for full coverage with no streaks.
I then started out by using Chirality Convergance and the biggest dotting tool to and randomly placed them. But kept in mind that I am trying to keep the whole design confined to the middle parts of the nails.

I then went one size down in dotting tool and added dots using China Glaze Dance Baby. And last but not least I took the smallest dotting tool and added a little Different Dimension Ditz.

And ended the whole thing with a thick coat of Sally Hansen Insa-Dri Top coat.

Lazy Beach Days

On my way to California for the week so this will be my last post until next weekend.  I am visiting a ton of family and I didn't bring my laptop or nail polish. *GASP*

So yes I am doing this from my phone so forgive me if it turns out not as awesome as normal. 

I have gorgeous Lazy Beach Days from 365 Days of Color. I have seen it called Lazy Summer Days but the label on the bottom of mine said Lazy Beach Days. 
Moving on....
This polish is a gorgeous bright teal with almost a jelly feel to it. 

It has a really pretty copper and pink glitters in it. The glitters were actually really hard to fish out but I think that has more to do with that being a mini bottle and not a full size. 
Over all I really do love the color pay off of this polish. Glitter not so much. But I still like having it in my collection. Since I am on my phone I am having a hard time adding links to Sunny's pages. But here is the URL to her Facebook so make sure to check it out!!
