Hiya guys! Before I dive into today's post I wanted to take a minute to thank you guys. The last two weeks I have been reviewing more than I normally do on my blog and have had so much fun sharing new collections with you guys. That said, I do miss nail art. Starting next week I will be doing a lot more art and tutorials, especially because it's my favorite month after-all! Now for today I will be sharing some more Halloween beauties, this time it's a duo from the lovely Samantha at Bellaluna Cosmetics.
Bellaluna Cosmetics - Black Widow
Black Widow can be described as a black crelly with micro red glitter. Isn't this such a lush beauty? It definitely has that deadly, but sexy thing going on. Like whip out the leather and lace, haha. Okay I don't know maybe I am thinking way too hard into it. The formula has an extremely opaque consistency on a first coat, but will need a second to cover any sheer spots. Because of the super jam-packed micro glitters this polish will dry to a gritty finish. Make sure to double-up on the topcoat to smooth the texture out and be left with a beautiful shine. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Bellaluna Cosmetics - Bugs & Hisses
Bugs & Hisses can be described as a blood orange jelly filled with black and holographics shreds. Tell me this doesn't look absolutely insane? In the best possible way of course. Initially I thought to myself, this polish has entirely way too many glitters. But then... I thought about the name and looked at the polish closely. Bugs... Bugs!! It totally nails the whole creepy crawler bug theme once I actually took a second to let it sink in. Then of course I felt itchy like I had bugs on me, haha. The formula has a great consistency, not too thick or too thin with each layer. The polish ends up evening out nicely on its own, but it does dry to a texture-ish finish because of the glitters. Again, double-up on the topcoat and bumpy glitters be tamed. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.
Overall I really think Samantha completely nailed the inspirations for each polish in this duo. Both have such distinct vibes going on and are perfect for Halloween - whether you decide to be spooky or deadly seductive! Surprisingly enough, I have to say my favorite is Bugs & Hisses. It's such an odd looking polish, but completely amazing at the same time. I love the fact that the crazy amount of glitter doesn't effect the application in the slightest bit. This is definitely one I will be wearing a lot of this month. What do you guys think?
