Welcome Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Mansion

I have two gorgeous polishes to show you today. AND it is an awesome collab between The Lady Varnishes and Sweet Heart Polish. Two of the coolest indie polish makers ever!

Fun fact about The Haunted Mansion ride, or not fun fact. It seems that quite a few people like to scatter family members ashes on the ride. If that doesnt make it more creepy. I dont know what does.

On to the polish!
First up with have The Lady Varnishes Welcome, Foolish Mortals.

Welcome, Foolish Mortals is a a greenish grey color, close to that of rotting flesh. But this one has gorgeous iridescent glitters packed in. My picture really does no justice to how gorgeous this polish really is. And IT GLOWS IN THE DARK! Unfortunately I was unable to catch that effect but you can check out a review from Accio Lacquer right HERE. She has awesome pics showing the glow factor.

Next up we have Sweet Heart Polish's Hurry Ba-ack.
I found this polish to be very fun.  It has gorgeous neon hex glitters and tiny micro glitters in a sheer black base.
I used three coats in the picture below. 

In this picture I used one coat of Hurry Ba-ack over OPI I Sing in Color. I loved how it looked for this polish to be layered over this dark purple. 

The Grim Grinning Ghosts duo will be released on 4/30/14 for a VERY limited first run. There will be 15 duos available in each shop for a total of 30 sets. And incase you arent convinced, in true Disney fashion, there is a single hidden Mickey glitter in each bottle of polish from the collection.

Be sure to check out the links below and purchase your own duo starting Wednesday!

I hope you are able to snag yourself a set before they are gone!

Fandom Cosmetics

I know it has been almost a month since I have posted! I recently got a new job as an AT&T Advanced Tech Chat Specialist, at least I think thats what the title is. So I am really excited about that!

But now I have some gorgeous polishes from Fandom Cosmetics! These are my first two polishes from this brand!

First up we have I Should Hate to be Predictable from the Downton Abbey collection.
This polish is described as an opaque pastel yellow. I think this is FAR from pastel and I would describe it more as a vibrant yellow. The polish is somewhat streaky so below is 4 coats.
This is a gorgeous and well made polish but I think it looks awful on my skin tone, so I am not sure I will wear it again.

Next up we have Raspberry Cordial from the Anne of Green Gables collection. It is described as a merlot base filled with holo glitter dust.
I loved this polish! Below is only two coats and I love the way it looks on me.
But the glitter does make the texture a bit grainy so I had to use two layers of top coat.

And I just has to stamp it!!!!
I stamped a pretty lace image from Bundle Monster plate BM323 using some generic Wet n Wild black. 

I highly recommend this brand and will be buying from them in the future.
Be sure to check out their STORE and FACEBOOK for more gorgeous goodies. They sell more than just nail polish.


**These polishes were sent to me for my honest review**
