Right on the Nail ~ KBShimmer Fall 2015 Collection Swatches and Review: Be Scareful

KBShimmer Be Scareful (3 coats)

I know, I'm posting 3 days in a row! I told you I have so many Halloween polishes and so little time! This is my first time trying KBShimmer and I know that is totally crazy. They are such a big indie company that I don't even know if we can really call them indie anymore (but we can). I have several from the Fall Collection to show you, but tonight we will leave it to the Halloween one. 

Be Scareful is a white crelly polish with black and orange shards and black and orange glitter in various shapes (I can see triangles, circles, stars and hexagonal). I also accidentally found out that it was glow-in-the-dark the next day. I am terrible at taking pictures in the dark, so you'll have to believe me or stop by the KBShimmer website. I used 3 coats for full opacity here. Make sure to use thin coats so you don't end up with an uneven finish

You can buy most KBShimmer polishes for $8.75, including Be Scareful. Make sure to check them out on their website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more information. Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Right on the Nail ~ Black Creme Polish Comparison

*press samples*

Left: Sally Hansen Blacky O (2 coats) Middle: Morgan Taylor Little Black Dress (2 coats) Right: NYC Black Lace Creme (2 coats)

Tonight I have a little something different for you. I received several different black creme polishes to review with Halloween right around the corner. On the nail, all three basically look the same, but they all have different brushes, consistencies, and prices. On the left is Blacky O from the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line. It had a formula that was slightly jelly-like. Unlike a jelly it only needed 2 coats. In the middle we have the Morgan Taylor color called Little Black Dress that was easily the most opaque and easiest to apply of the three. It is also the most expensive and hardest to find. And finally, on the right is New York Cosmetics' (NYC) Black Lace Creme. It had a really thin, almost jelly formula, but still only needed 2 coats. 

The price and availability are important points to mention as well. If you need the polish for this weekend, you will be able to find the Sally Hansen for around $8 at your local Ulta, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, or Rite Aid stores. NYC is also easy to find at Target, Walmart, Rite Aid, CVS, or Kmart. Oh, did I mention that these will run you a buck? That's right, a dollar. And finally, Morgan Taylor is not easy to find for non-professionals. Fortunately, there is one place you can purchase your Morgan Taylor, OPI, or CND polishes, and that's Loxa Beauty. You can buy polishes for retail price, but right now they have 15% off all purchases with the code TREAT15. Overall, if I want a great black polish that I plan on wearing a lot, I would go with Morgan Taylor, but if it's just something for once a year or just a costume, you may want to just buy the NYC color.

I'm so happy to start a new fall collection that I bought a few weeks ago from a brand called Aliquid Lacquer. These are my first polishes from them and the 8-piece collection is inspired by the video game The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. My husband played The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim game and I loved watching it because there were so many interesting quests. Follow me after the break to see my thoughts on the first 2 colors...

Right on the Nail ~ Polish 'M Fall 2015 Collection Swatches and Reviews Part III

Hi guys, sorry I missed my post yesterday. I've been working in the field a lot for work and I was away from my computer for a bit. If anyone is interested, I've been studying ponds to see if they are affected by herbicide runoff at sod/turf farms. Many people don't even realize that these farms exist! Anyway, tonight I have the next 2 colors from Polish 'M Fall Collection. This is a huge collection!
