Indie: Pahlish Spam (Portal Collection and others)
The last two days were pretty scary with Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy coming through New Jersey. Luckily, we are in northern NJ, so we missed the brunt of the storm, but we are dealing with a lot of downed trees and power lines. We are even luckier to live on the same street as the fire department in our town, so our power was turned back on within 24 hours of it going out. A lot of food from the fridge was thrown out, and I missed work during a pretty busy time, but otherwise I am very thankful for how little we were affected. My heart goes out to everyone who is still dealing with the aftermath of the storm :( Best wishes to all of you.
Extreme weather aside, I thought I would post some more indies. Surprised? Didn't think so. I actually got these and swatched these a while ago, but forgot to post them.
I purchased these myself. I actually purchased the entire Portal collection, but my bottle of Little Caroline was from a lighter batch, so I am waiting for a replacement. I thought I would show the remaining swatches and edit the post later!

From the Portal collection:
Ace of Fours
Ace of Fours - 3 coats on its own
Ace of Fours over OPI DTMT - This looks so dainty!
Combustible Lemon - 3 coats on its own - So shiny IRL
Combustible Lemon over ChG Riveting
Marbles on Glass
Marbles on Glass over Essie NMF
Marbles on Glass over Essie Cocktail Bling
Still Alive - 3 coats on its own. This pulled really green on me, but looks more teal on others. I wish it was a little more blue on me. Also super shiny, kind of like Zoya Ivanka.
Still Alive over Essie Going Incognito
And two others:
Toxic and Timeless over Illamasqua Rampage - I saw solveig's swatch of Pahlish Toxic and Timeless and it looked a bit different than the bottle I bought (aside from the fact that I purchased a barless batch!), so I bought another bottle >.> The new bottle I got has more medium glitters in it, which I love, but the base seems a little cloudier than my original. It doesn't seem to affect the overall look, though. I do love this polish.
My Oblivion over NARS Midnight Express - holo glitters are not my favourite, as you may know, but I wanted to try this one anyway! I'm still unsure, to be honest!
Happy Halloween, guys!
