Do the “Monster Mash”! (by Orly)

 

Squeee!  What a fun nail polish!

Monster Mash by Orly – one of the Flash Glam FX polishes from their Spellbound collection.

 

 

This is the type of polish that catches your eye, and won’t let go.  With holographic green glitters and flicks – you just can’t go wrong.  It has been released in a Halloween collection, but it also seems like a polish to include in a spring collection.
On it’s own, in all honesty – it’s kind of gross looking.  The sheer green polish the glitter is suspended in, is…not attractive.  See for yourself:

 

 

But, as suggested on the signage  in the store, as well as the copy on their website – “layer over black to intensify the look!”

 

 

MUCH better!! 🙂  Personally, I would not recommend using Monster Mash on it’s own.  It’s definitely the layering type.

 

I tried it over orange (forgot to take photos) and over black.  They both looked nice, but over the black was pretty spectacular 🙂

 

My new favorite glitter polish!  What’s yours?

Bubble, bubble…polish and trouble.

 

I’m running out of things to call my posts…. as you can see 🙂

 

Proudly, I would like to announce the latest holographic polish purchase, added to my collection.

Introducing,  JADE Holografico “Magia”.  It is just as good, if not possibly better than the Nfu Oh holographic’s.  Really fantastic smooth consistency, and brilliant holo with just one coat (although I’ve done 2 here).

 

The reason for the introduction is,  that this is the base polish for tonight’s manicure.

 

What I saw in my mind, while thinking of what to do to my nails was ,pools of green with bubbles coming out/up from them.
What turned out, was this:

 

 

They kind of look like a weird version of when I do strawberries on my nails.  The middle finger got mushed, and I still had a small puddle of green polish left from doing the dots – so, I tried the spun sugar (that’s what it is called, right?) technique.  It worked, kind of.

Voila!

bonne nuit mes amis!
