The base for all these glitters is China Glaze I'm With the Lifeguard. It's almost neon, but it's not - it's just really bright. The second pix is shaded on purpose to give a more accurate color of the green. It's not as yellow as it looks in the first pix.
Swatching that combo made me wonder if I had any other purple glitters that would read Halloween if I put them over the same bright green. First, I tried Candeo Mallard. Candeo colors are very nice glitters - great formula, complex mixes of glitters. I liked this combo, but I'm looking forward to trying it out over something less Halloween-ie.
Next, I tried Wet 'n Wild Colorcon in The Crown Is Mine. Hmm. Not Halloween-ie at all. The lavender dominates, and the shimmer lightens the green too much. I wasn't feeling this combo at all. Pass.
Wild and Crazy in Paris is a color I picked up at a beauty supply store that specialized in ethnic products. I'd never heard of this brand, but I loved this glitter! No purple, but the green and black is very festive.
Dandy Nails is becoming one of my fave Indies. I have reviewed Wonderwall before, and I'm going to review Bathed in Light for you, too, which I fell in love with. Like Disco Lemonade is another fun glitter with different greens and black and some holo glitters that flash purple. Over the green, very Halloween, but I look forward to wearing this year-round.
All together. They all have similar colored glitters in them, but they couldn't be more different on the nail! Thumb - Candeo Mallard. From index to pinky - Colorcon The Crown is Mine, Wild and Crazy Paris, Kunimitsu One Scary Outfit, and Dandy Nails Like Disco Lemonade.
Will you 'make' a Halloween polish this season, or will you buy ones that are someone else's vision of the season?
