NOTD: Pumpkin and Candy Corn by The Nail Junkie

I like The Nail Junkie’s halloween collection, especially candy corn and pumpkin. I really like the idea of candy corn, although I don’t like to eat them, because they really remind me of this season. It was something that was part of my childhood. Pumpkin looks so refreshing with the green flakes and bits.

My painting’s not fantastic and I have tried a few times with the Candy Corn. It’s rather bumpy but actually a texture I keep sliding my fingers over. ;p The pumpkin goes on rather well.

That’s all for my latest polish in the mail. What are your favorite halloween polishes?

NOTD: Fish by The Nail Junkie (swatches of the rest later)

Received my second batch of indie polishes, from The Nail Junkie. Besides the polishes themselves, she also added a “cutie balm” and glitter removal felt pieces. And, some halloween goodies!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I got Candy Corn, Fish and Pumpkin. The two orangy ones, as you can guess, are part of her halloween collection. There’s now a giveaway, so join now! I’m going to start swatches with the fish polish. I actually swatched candy corn first but I was in such a hurry to build layers that it got a bit messy and I had to remove it. I also wanted to try Pumpkin and painted over and it became a real mess. I was just too impatient to see how all of them would look! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the fish:

AD said this one looks like the sparkling sea. I didn’t manage to catch one in strong sunlight but it does sparkle with hexagonal glitters. There are also smaller blue glitters, in a shimmery blue base. It’s quite sheer so I put in about 4 coats to get it to the solid color that I like.

NOTD: Seuss and Kitty Glitter (updated with pic)

Updated with a picture. The amigurumi kitty, named Cave, is one I made quite a while ago. Realised when I saw pam’s card that Cave matched the kitty on it. So he become a prop too with the two polishes I got from her. ๐Ÿ™‚

These are my first indie polishes from Whimsical ideas by pam! Waited forever for them, not because they were sent out late, but because it spent so much time in the post. pam doesn’t send out of the States so I had to go a roundabout route to obtain these, ย with many thanks to a dear friend.

I like most of pam’s whimsical polishes but I was really smitten by Seuss.

I almost didn’t get another polish, as this was my first indie purchase but decided to try kitty glitter as well. I’m glad I got it cos I maybe possibly like it more than Seuss! It’s a beautiful color with small and large glitter.

The formular of both bottles I got was good, and the polish went on really smoothly. Seuss is a bit more sheer and I needed at least three coats to cover Visible Nail Line. The only thing is that they smell quite strongly, compared to some of the other brands that i have been using. It was the same with cirque as well, although the smell is slightly different.

I would love to get more so I hope she will consider shipping internationally sometime soon!

Another try!

I just can’t give up on the cirque. I went back and put on another approximately (i lost count) two coats of polish and three of topcoat. That makes about 8 layers and it’s crazy! So, I decided that I’m gonna have to wear this till it chips off to nothing (ok, jus until it looks unpresentable or I get tired of it or I’m tempted by another polish).

Here’s the result of my hard work!
