BOO!

It's October already and this calls for the Halloween season! I'm pretty sure around this time you're reading this you've seen pumpkins and scary masks in shopping malls.

Today I am here to show you Chloe and Bella's latest 2014 Halloween Collection. There are three polishes in this collection and I will show you all! Here's a sneak peak macro shot of the polishes hehehe!


First up is GOPHER GUTS.

Gopher Guts has an amazingly captivating holo-shimmery green somewhat jelly base. I do not normally like straight out greens much but I must admit this was an exception. I'll tell you why in a bit!

GG has black and dark teal small hexagon pieces and dark foresty green triangles. The best part about GG is that the glitter pieces are holo and not to mention the big pieces of dark green round glitter! That's why I love this green! As you can see in my macro shots, the holo-ness truly captivates me.

Below is GG in one, two and three coats (without top coat).

GG's formula was great and easy to work with, application too was a breeze. The coverage needs a little more since it is a jelly base, I do recommend going for three coats (as you can see from above). However, it is entirely up to you if you prefer two or three.

The swatches below are in two coats and topped off with Crystal Clear top coat, also one of Chloe and Bella's product.

As the base of GG is jelly-like, it is quite evident that on the tips it is a little sheer. Nonetheless, I do love this whole combination. This picture below is not very forgiving, it has been hazy in Singapore and the sun isn't cooperating. But, fret not *winks*

For once, I preferred a swatch under artificial lighting! Now, this picture shows the true beauty of GG. Look at the amount of green shimmer and the holo shown off from the glitter pieces.

Here is a macro shot just for you! This is my favourite picture of all *drools* I do have a thing for macros hehehe :P This picture even captures the holo shimmer and holo glitters! LOVE!

Next, I have for you, BIRDY FEET!

BF has a red-leaning orange sheer base color. The combination of the base color and glitters can instantly remind anyone of Halloween. BF is easily my favorite of the trio.

It has micro tiny sized square red and gold pieces, small black hexagons and small gold square pieces. There seems to be only a few types of glitter pieces in BF but I think that is sufficient! 

Here is one, two and three coats of BF (without top coat) :

The formula was the best! The application was easy and flowy. Although the base orangey base is a little sheer, doing two or three coats will suffice. The amount of glitter payoff is of no worries. You can totally trust on Chloe and Bella's glitters, they're too good!

The black, gold, red and orange just brings the whole polish together into the festive Halloween feel. The sheer base allows for the layer of glitters to show through, similar to Monkey Meat (continue reading!)

As you can see in the macro, the gold and orange just smashes just right! I love all the glitters in this one! HEHEHE!

Lastly, presenting MONKEY MEAT.

MM has an interesting jelly brown-caramel base with lots and lots of glitter. There's medium-szied dark dusty red diamonds, round and small square pieces. And then there's black small hexagon glitters together with my favorite glitter piece of MM, the small gold-yellow round glitter!

Here is MM in one, two and three coats (without top coat) :

MM has a slightly thicker formula due to the amount of glitters it carries. The base jelly brown-caramel is rather patchy on the first coat but evens out by the second. When I first applied MM, I found that the whole color combination is like a subtle glitter polish.

Due to the base color in the spectrum of nude, this polish seemed like a ninja glitter polish, I hope you get what I mean HAHA!

The application was rather good, some dabbing is needed to spread the glitter out. 

The swatches below are in two coats and topped off with Crystal Clear top coat, also one of Chloe and Bella's product.

As you can see, the red glitter pieces brings out the base color very well and my favourite gold-yellow round glitter brings out the extra depth to the color. I just love this combination very much. Plus, I do have a thing for round glitters *blushes*

Here is a close-up macro shot of MM. Look at the round gitter!!! Just stare a bit longer! Sometimes I feel like it has a bit of color shift in the round glitter, LOL. Also, because of the jelly base, it somewhat covers the first coat of glitter but allowing some to peek through, which is really cool!
