Indie: Happy Hands Halloween 2012 - Ready for Fall Collection - spam!

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

Bottle shots

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".

Easy Bake Coven

Easy Bake Coven over Illamasqua Milf (SV brush ruining my macro again!)

Z is for Zombies - no matter how I look at this, it makes me think of guacomole, LOL

Z is for Zombies - 3 coats on its own

Hope you enjoyed that, I know I did! *rolls around in bottles of indie glitter polish*


  1. It looks like there are green moons in the bottle of Easy Bake Coven, or am I seeing things?

  2. Z is for Zombies didn't look so hot in the bottle, but I'm kind of loving it on your nails!

  3. I was just trying to convince my fiance last night that he needs to watch Buffy, and I did so by saying, "You should watch this really creepy episode from season 4 called Hush..." and I proceeded to nerd out. The Gentlemen scare the crap out of me. And I love it when Buffy makes the motion for staking and they all look at her like she did something dirty. Which she did. To conclude, I love Buffy.

  4. lol z is for zombies really does look a lot like guacamole! with red pepper and spring onion bits :p NOMS.

  5. i like hoe complex these glitters are. You can telll a lot of thought went into them. Danse Macabre and Easy Bake Coven are both calling my name.

  6. wow they look gorgeous!! I want Danse Macabre, Easy Bake Coven, and Stuffed!
