We all know how much I adore the brand Model City Polish :) So of course, when she came out with new Halloween colors, I snatched up a few! Well, my hubby did for me - when they launched I was on a plane headed back home ;) What a good husband :D
One of the three new polishes I purchased is called Here Lies... - check it out!
And of course, I couldn't resist a little nail art ;)
Here Lies is a lovely grey crelly with black and white flake glitters - and this one is scented!! She offered scents this time as an option for your polish, the scent for this one is an Earthy/floral scent. If you are familiar with Renaissance festivals, and frequent them like me, imagine the smell inside the clothing booths - that woodsy incense smell is almost identical to this polish's scent. It's really lovely :)
Application was a dream, as usual! I used 3 coats to make it completely opaque, and it dried to a shiny finish, as seen above in the photos (no topcoat was used). It dried fairly quickly in under five minutes, too, which is always convenient.
The other polish I purchased is Once Bitten:
Of course there's nail art for this one, too!
Once bitten is a gorgeous deep red crelly with gold fleck glitters and a subtle scattered holo, and comes with the option of Caramel Apple scent. I got the scented in this one, too, and it smells glorious!
Application was nice and smooth, though I did find this one remained a bit tacky for quite a while - like, an hour or so :-/ Not sure if it was because I had 3 layers, or if it is a formula thing, or if the scent did it, but it is something to consider. A simple solution is a quick-dry topcoat (that will also add a nice shine to it - I added a topcoat in my photos), and the best part? The topcoat does NOT cover up the scent! Well, mine didn't, and I used the hardcore HK Girl "Glisten and Glow" topcoat. Other than than the tackiness, it was perfect! Just love that smell :)
She has just re-stocked her website, and has also added a lot of colors that will be discontinued to her clearance section. She has also added some new scents to her Cuticle oils that I highly recommend - like caramel ^_^ Here are links to her shop and her social pages:
I hope you all survive your Monday! I will be posting a picture of last week's You-Pick-My-Art winner this afternoon on my Facebook Page, and will possibly have a blog post about it tomorrow :) See you soon! <3
