Pepper Pot Polish - Gothic Family Jewels Collection

Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! I'm so excited to share a new-to-me brand with you all. Actually I have a previous collection in my stash that I received from a friend. I never got around to swatching it though because I received it during the time I was really sick. So this collection definitely lit the fire to dig it out of my stash and I'll hopefully be posting that soon. But for today I'm sharing swatches for the new Gothic Family Jewels Collection by Pepper Pot Polish, which consists of five gorgeous and vampy cremes. Definitely a collection made to get you hyped for the Fall season and I'm absolutely loving it. So let's go ahead and get to the swatches!

Pepper Pot Polish - Gothic Family Jewels Collection

The Gothic Family Jewels Collection by Pepper Pot Polish will be releasing on Wednesday, September 13th at noon PST. Each full-size 11mL bottle retails for $10 and the entire collection retails for $45. Use code PEPPERPOT and receive 15% off your entire purchase!

Pepper Pot Polish - Shadowplay

Shadowplay can be described as a deep dark sapphire blue creme. Starting this review with one of my favorites and of course it's a blue! But it's a heck of a stunner and already bringing us the vamp factor. Plus it's absolutely perfect against any skin-tone. You can never go wrong with a dark blue as far as I'm concerned!

The formula has a sheer application that's a bit on the patchy side. Although described as a creme it feels more like a jelly. The consistency is well balanced, not too thick or too thin. It dries down to a high-shine and I experienced no staining on removal. That will always be a big plus in my book when it comes to a blue shade, especially a dark one. Shown in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

The Rapture can be described as a deep dark and rich purple creme. So thrilled to see a vampy purple plum shade for the Fall, it's a total must for me when it comes to this season. Needless to say, this is one of my favorite shades in this collection hands down. It looks really pleasant against my skin complexion without bringing out too much warmth.

The formula has a very opaque and smooth application. Very creamy finish! Though it's not quite opaque enough to be considered a one coater. Nice balanced consistency and dries down to a high-shine. I experienced no staining on removal to my cuticles or nail beds. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Pepper Pot Polish - Take A Bau(Haus)

Take A Bau(Haus) can be described as a deep brown topaz creme with a hint of yellow sheen. The stand-out against the cremes with the subtle sheen/shimmer in the finish. Although I do love the uniqueness of the shade combination, I wish it didn't have the sheen. It definitely would have made the must-have list if it was a plain creme, but that's just my personal preference.

The formula has a very opaque application and is almost a one coater. Consistency wise it leans on thick, but it's manageable to layer. It has some minimal brush strokes in the finish due to the sheen, but it mostly blends out after topcoat. And like all the others, it dries down to a smooth high-shine finish. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Bela Lugosi's Red can be described as a deep garnet red, almost black. 

The formula has a sheer initial application, but it builds-up to a fully opaque finish. It has a balanced consistency, not too thick or too thin. I did experience some minor staining on removal to my cuticles. Shown in two to three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

You Goth To Be Kidding Me can be described as a dark creamy emerald green.

The formula a very opaque application, almost enough to be a one coater. Like the others, it has a flawless balanced consistency. It's easy to work with and layers without any issue. Again with this shade, I experienced no staining to my nail beds or my cuticles on removal. Shown in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Overall these shades are definitely all the right Fall vibes and I am loving every bit of it. It's always nice to start shifting into the darker tones this time of year and these definitely fit the mark for that. This was a fantastic first impression from this brand, I am loving every single of these colors and more importantly the formula. With the exception of the one, the rest had a perfect creamy and high-shine finish I love seeing. Definitely keeping an eye-out for this indie in the future!

To recap, Gothic Family Jewels Collection by Pepper Pot Polish will be releasing on Wednesday, September 13th at noon PST. Each full-size 11mL bottle retails for $10 and the entire collection retails for $45. Use code PEPPERPOT and receive 15% off your entire purchase!
