Nine Zero Lacquer Halloween 2015 Trio Swatches & Review

Hey there! Today I have the Halloween trio from Nine Zero Lacquer to show you! I am so happy they came out with Halloween polishes, I wasn't sure there would be another collection so soon from them since they are a very new brand. These shades are excellent and perfect for the upcoming holiday!

Holo-ween is a holographic orange microglitter in an orange jelly base. The first coat is pretty sheer, so I was stoked to see how opaque it got on the second coat. Yup, this is only two coats and it's not overly thick which was really nice. Crazy blingy. Dries texture so I used two coats of top coat for a glassy surface.

Swamp Thing is a slime green jelly with tons of awesome gold shimmer flakes that meld into each other. This is an excellent polish, it has great coverage and was opaque in two coats. Dries slightly dull so use a top coat for maximum impact. This color really wowed me, it makes me think of amphibian skin or something and I love it.

Candy Pillowcase is a really opaque white crelly, with various sizes of orange, red, yellow, green and black matte glitters in hexes, dots, and bars. The name of this cracks me up, I always used a pillowcase for trick or treating when I was a kiddo. Two coats with this guy, pretty easy application with nice glitter payoff.

The pre-sale for this trio has already ended, but they will be available on the Nine Zero Lacquer website on Friday, 10/9 at 11am EST for $9 each or $24.50 for the set of three. Tell me what you think about these three Halloween babies! I am head over heels!

Nail Polish I Wore In Real Life Vol. 7

Hello there :) How are you doing today? I thought I'd give you an update on what I've been wearing on my nails lately! I wore all of these beautiful polishes as full manicures, for at least a day haha. I've been getting better at keeping my nails polished lately, even though I haven't posted one of these in real life posts in a while haha.

Girly Bits What Happens In Vegas...Ends Up On Snapchat is a light silvery purple linear holographic polish with added holographic microglitter bits. It’s the third annual polish in their LE Vegas series, created for Cosmoprof North America 2105. I found the formula easy to use, it applied with no issues. Three coats for full opacity. There is a little bit of a textured finish due to the microglitter so I would suggest using a thick top coat. I purchased this from the Girly Bits website for $13 CAD. This shade is unfortunately sold out, but watch her site for more polishes in this series!

China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond is from The Giver Collection that was released this Spring. I only picked up one other polish from the collection, Boundary of Memory, but I decided I had to have this one too! This is a bright turquoise blue crème. It had a really easy to work with formula and was opaque in two coats. I purchased this from HB Beauty Bar for $5.25

Morgan Taylor Holy Cow-Girl! This is a mid-tone sage green crème with light green microshimmers. This had a great formula, smooth and easy. I like this a lot, but I wish the shimmer was more pronounced to make it pop a little more. I used two coats here. This is my first Morgan Taylor polish and I really like the brush and bottle design! I'll have to pick up more. I purchased this from HB Beauty Bar for $8.

Tell me what you've been wearing on your beautiful nails lately! Have you tried any of these three? Btw, I wanted to mention that I have a new-ish snapchat account that I'm getting more into so if you want to follow me, my username is kelliegonzo :) I post snaps of my notd's, nail mail hauls, and sneak peeks! Although getting into snapchat has made me realize how boring my life is compared to everyone else's, but I still really like it! Have a great one cookies!

Different Dimension Halloween 2015 Anomalous-Phenomenon Collection Swatches & Review

Hiiii friends! How is your October going? Mine is going swell because I have another Halloween collection to share with you today! Indie brand Different Dimension has put out a six shade collection for the season called Anomalous-Phenomenon, which means "that which is not sufficiently explained by science or inferred knowledge". This collection is "dedicated to those who are always on the hunt for the unknown," which totally describes me! I am a firm believer in science and logic, but there's always more we don't know about the universe, amirite??

EMF (which stands for electromagnetic field) is a dark red jelly polish with holographic microglitter. The jelly mostly overtakes the glitter and gives us a deep look with some sparkly bits popping out, a red galaxy! This was on the thicker side but I found it a bit runny too. I would take care not to get too much on your brush and use thin coats. I used three.

Chasing Shadows is a dark violet jelly polish with holographic microglitter. This had a thinner formula than EMF, but was still a little runny. I only needed two coats on this one.

Static Vision is a forest green jelly with holographic microglitter. This has a similar formula to EMF, thicker but a bit runny. This would be a great Halloween or Christmas polish in my opinion, love it! Three coats.

EVP (which stands for electronic voice phenomena) is a black jelly polish with holographic microglitter. This one was more thin and also a bit runny. It only required two coats for opacity though. I think this one dried a little grittier than the other, but one coat of top coat covered any texture completely.

Knock Once For Yes is a burnt orange (pumpkin spice!) with holographic microglitters. This one seemed the creamiest out of all the microglitters, maybe more of a crelly than a jelly base. Opaque on two coats.

Full Spectral is a white crelly polish with different sizes of hex and dot glitters in black, neon yellow, purple, orange, and green. I found the formula on this to be pretty easy going and typical of a glitter-full crelly, kinda sheer on the first coat but built up nicely in three thin coats.

These are being released tonight, Friday, October 2nd at 9pm EST on the Different Dimension website. The microglitters are priced at $8.75 each while the crelly Full Spectral will be specially priced at $5! How do you like these spooky shades?? I'm in love with them all, but the red and orange are my favorites!
