Did you check out the Sinful Colors polish at Walgreens’ 99-cent sale this week? I didn’t need any more basic colors but drifted over to the new Halloween display to see what was, well, new.
I don’t like to spend much money on “costume”-type polish that I may only wear once or twice a year, but at 99 cents, a little bling is quite do-able. Heck, you can’t even buy much of a candy bar or cup of coffee for that price any more.
I picked up two glitter/shard top coats, the alliterative Splatter Spell and Mystery Moonshine.
Splatter Spell is a clear base with various sizes of black hex glitter and copper-orange shards. Mystery Moonshine is a clear base with copper-orange, blue-purple, and green shards or metallic shreds of various sizes. I used two coats of each over two coats of the bright yellow Darcy from Zoya, so that all the particles would show up. Then because it was a little scratchy I used a clear shiny top coat.
The outdoor light today is very gloomy and did not lead to good photos:
Sharper with the flash:
Both are OK, nothing amazing. Fun for Halloween, and they could even be Mardi Gras toppers too.
