Hiya guys! It's going to be a hectic week in every aspect of my life and I am not looking forward to it. But it's also a week full of planning and that is something I am definitely good anxious about. From haunted hay rides to general spookiness, I need to plan out four weekends of fun to get my mind off things. Any suggestions? Outfit and nail wise I got it more than covered. Today I'm sharing another new Halloween collection releasing this upcoming week. Say hello to the Ladies of the Fright Collection by Jior Couture in collaboration with Green Goddess Creations.
The Ladies of the Fright Collection by Jior Couture will be releasing on Wednesday, October 2nd. This is a six-piece collection that will be available as a whole as well as individually. Stay tuned tomorrow to show you the adorable Halloween decals from Green Goddess Creations paired with my favorite shades from this set.
Jior Couture - Baba Yaga
Baba Yaga can be described as a bright lime green linear holographic that glows in the dark. This is one of my favorite shades in this collection and I was really not expecting that from a green. I wish I could say this is a definite must-have, but unfortunately I could not get the glowing aspect of it to trigger. Usually I charge a glowing polish for a few hours and that works well enough, but it just didn't seem to do a thing to this one. The formula had a really smooth application throughout. It's a bit sheer, but it ends up evening out nicely and has a nice natural shine. Shown here is three coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Jior Couture - Aswang
Aswang can be described as a nude to red thermal filled with blue/purple flakies. You guys know how much I love me a dramatic thermal transition! While the color change is beautiful, I again had trouble getting the color to change. I don't know if maybe my bottle was the issue or my body temperature was working against me in this case, but it is something worth noting either way. The formula had a jelly-ish kind of application, a little sheer but it does build up evenly. While I like the mega-stuffed flakie finish, it kind of works against this polish. Every other stroke I'd get these big flakies that ended up looking unpleasant to me. Again, it feels more like a personal preference. Shown here is three coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Jior Couture - Harionago
Harionago can be described as a chocolate maroon crelly filled with red, purple, and dark red micro glitters. I really love the tone of the color and the glitter combination. It has a really mysterious feel to it. The formula has a good opacity and evenness throughout. It is extremely glitter heavy and this causes a bit of a gritty finish. A nice thick layer of topcoat smooths it down well, but two coats may be better. Shown here is two coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Jior Couture - Rusalki
Rusalki can be described as a dark plum jelly filled with orange and purple micro glitters. Another favorite of mine in this collection, these photos don't do the squishy finish any justice. The formula is really good and not too thick or too thin with each layer. The great consistency is definitely a bonus considering it is so glitter heavy. Shown here is two coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Jior Couture - Pontianak
Pontianak can be described as a crimson red jelly polish filled with red small hexes and micro glitters. Squishy, squishy, oh so much squish. It's without a doubt a must-have for jelly fans. The formula is smooth on the first two layers, but it is a bit uneven. I found it best to dabble a third layer to cover any noticeable sheer spots. You can easily pair this over a solid color for less coats as well. Shown here is three coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Jior Couture - Lamia
Lamia can be described as a dark grey crelly filled with silver holographic hexes and micro glitters. Another pretty combination and it's always nice to see a grey polish. The formula is a one coat wonder if you use a thick enough layer. Personally I always like using two for the even coverage. The hexes require a bit of fishing, but I suspect that leaving the bottle upside down will help in the long run. Shown here is two coats sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Overall the jelly polishes really seem to outshine the majority of this collection with the exception of Baba Yaga. That being said, I do feel this is a very diverse collection that gives us a little bit of everything. This is always such a huge bonus in a larger collections. Pontianak feels like such a must-have and you guys haven't even see it matted (hint hint). As I mentioned before, the Ladies of the Fright Collection by Jior Couture will be releasing on Wednesday, October 2nd. Definitely mark your calendars as these polishes tend to go fast!
