Disclosure: The following polishes were provided to me for swatching.
Another indie spam post! Woooo! :) Kristi is on a forum with me, and asked me if I wanted to swatch her Halloween "Ready for Fall" collection. I eagerly jumped at the chance, because I had admired her "Greetings From Florida" and "I've Made A Huge Mistake!" (i.e., inspired by Arrested Development!) collections. I think she is sending me a couple of the polishes from the AD collection too, even though I'm sure those are selling like hotcakes :)
Anyways! Back to the collection at hand. These Halloween polishes will be available until the end of October, so if you see something you like, make sure you grab it soon! Kristi stocks her Etsy shop every Saturday at 5pm EST.
With the exception of Z is for Zombies, the formula is on the thicker side, but ya'll know that is my preference when it comes to indie glitters. *holds up a bottle of thinner* You can customize the consistency to your preference, although I have yet to meet an indie glitter that I needed to thin :p
For the pics below, I layered 1-2 coats of the Happy Hands over a base colour (with exception of Z is for Zombies) and topped with SV. For the jelly sandwiches with OPI Don't Touch My Tutu (DTMT), the base is 3 coats of OPI DTMT, 1-2 coats of glitter, and 1 more coat of the OPI.
My 2 favourites are Stuffed and Danse Macabre.
Available at: Happy Hands @ Etsy for $8 each
Danse Macabre - this song always reminds me of that episode of Buffy where the Gentlemen come to town and steal everyone's voices. And Xander mistakes "staking"-hand gesture for "boobies".
