Hiya guys! I'm back at work today and only on one hour worth of sleep. Oh joy. But with my favorite holiday, Halloween, around the corner there is no time to feel down. Yesterday I put together a Spooktacular Halloween indie shopping guide for you guys, which I will be updating daily as new collections are announced. And for today I'll be sharing an soon-to-be released Halloween polish from the lovely Brandie at Nail Hoot Lacquer called Jeepers Creepers.
Jeepers Creepers by Nail Hoot Lacquer will be released this Friday September 18th. This is a limited edition polish only available through Halloween. Each full size bottle will retail for $7.00.
"Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those peepers?
Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those eyes?"
Oh like you weren't singing the song already as soon as you heard the name! And if by any chance you legit don't know what I'm talking about then stop reading and YouTube right now. You'll thank me (or not) haha.
Jeepers Creepers can be described as a bright orange shimmer polish filled with copper orange hexes and black shredded glitters. Now you can go one of two ways with how to apply this polish. You can either layer it on its own and it will be opaque in three coats or you can use it over a white base with two coats. Having done both variations, I prefer doing my layers over a white base. Not only does it make the orange 'pop', but it also lessened the reflective shimmer in the finish.
The formula's consistency was top notch making the layering process smooth and easy. There were ample glitters in each brush stroke and I did not have issues with clumping. Definitely needs a topcoat to smooth things down and give nice finish. Shown here is two coats over a white base and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
And I couldn't resist adding a matte topcoat because... matte all the things!
Without a doubt, Jeepers Creepers definitely exudes the feeling of Halloween. Personally I think it really came to life when I used it over a white base and sealed it with a matte topcoat. It almost looked like a completely different polish, I love it. But what do you guys think? Which version do you like best, glossy or matte?
