Swatch/Review: Sinful Colors ‘Guise and Ghouls’ Halloween 2016 Collection

My Walgreens finally got the Halloween display up! Hallelujer. I was stalking Walgreens just waiting until they did, and praise Jeebus, they finally did.

One of the girls who works at Walgreens is in my art theory class. And the other day she leaned over and said to me “I hope this isn’t creepy, but we just got a bunch of new Halloween nail polishes in. I know that’s your thing.” I’ve made it guys. She officially knows I’m nail polish crazy. I didn’t have the heart to tell her I had already found them.

This collection also┬áincludes a solid black, and solid white cream, as well as the normal glow-in-the-dark top coat that they put out every year, but I didn’t pick these up, as I didn’t feel the need to.

I have not been able to find ‘Deja Boo’ around at all (it seems to be a problem for others as well) – but if I happen to, I’ll be sure to update this post, as well as indicate in the title. Otherwise I have the other 8 shades here to show you!

Now there are 9 colors (that aren’t the plain black & white), including the famous ‘Deja Boo’ promoted as this collection, so I picked those up, although there are more companion shades in the display with it. But I have swatches and a review of the main 8, as well as one dupe shade as well at the end of the post!

Let’s get on with it!

NOTD: Salon Perfect ‘Who Ya Gonna Call?’

I just happened to see this random little collection of Salon Perfect in my Walmart. It was literally just sitting in a little plastic holder all by itself in the middle of the bottom shelf near all of the nail polish. I knew I had found an untouched gem so I had to take a look.

It was the Salon Perfect Halloween collection. This shade was the one that truly intrigued me out of all of them – there was just a standard black, purple, orange and then toppers, but this was the one that caught me so I picked it up.

This one is called ‘Who Ya Gonna Call?’. It’s a clear jelly base with tons of black, dark green, and light green matte pieces all throughout. This was only 2 coats to get it opaque. It takes a little working, in the way that you can’t just swipe it on and go. As long as you just run your brush over your nail a couple of times to truly distribute all of the pieces on your nail, you’ll be set and opaque in two coats. But it’s definitely not work to get it even at all.

I will say that upon removal it can be easy to get the little pieces pretty much everywhere – but they come off in due time.

Truly such a unique polish! And great formula. I love it for Halloween. (It reminds me of Floam. Anyone else have that stuff?)

 

I’ll have the Sinful Colors Halloween 2016 collection review up tomorrow!
