Hi there! Tonight I’m bringing you two October limited editions from Celestial Cosmetics. One is called the Witchy Duo and it’s Celestial’s take on Halloween for 2015 and the other is this year’s October LE. Let’s start with the Witchy Duo!
Witches Charm is a purple scattered holo with microglitter and a really pretty rainbow when the sun hits it. The formula was lovely and very easy to apply – what you see here is two coats topped with Celestial Cosmetics Solar Ray Quick Dry Top Coat. I like how this polish is still a “traditional” Halloween colour yet not as dark as what you usually see. So many nail art possibilities!
WEAVE A SPELL
Weave A Spell is Celestial’s non-traditional Halloween polish. It’s a beautiful light blue crelly base with colour-changing flakies. I did two coats but I would suggest doing at least three or four coats as there was still some unevenness on a couple of fingers. In saying that, the formula was lovely but it’s just that you’ve got to apply it in steady, thin coats to achieve bottle look. I’ve topped it with Celestial Cosmetics Light Year Quick Dry Top Coat.
OCTOBER LE 2015
Finally we have October’s LE. As with all of this year’s limited editions, the October LE is based on the October birthstone, which is opal. I really don’t know how I feel about this polish, I’m a bit on the fence about it. I like the idea of it but so far I haven’t been able to find a base that it works well with. I actually think it looks the best worn alone. The October LE is a clear base with white and purple shimmer and opal flakes. Application was tricky as the opal flake don’t sit flat on the nail so you’re going to have to use a thick top coat to get it to sit, otherwise it will stick out. You also will need to fish for the opal flakes. What I did was apply my first coat and then dabbed on some flakes in the second coat. I’m wearing two coats on my index, middle and pinky fingers and one coat over Does Anybody Remember Laughter? (from the It’s All Happening Collection) on my ring finger. This is topped with two coats of Light Year.
