Happy March! It’s hopefully the start of a new season here. It’s back to being quite hot but I am hoping it’s the last before it finally cools down for autumn. I had such an epic class at gym last night. It was SO hard and I crawled out of there, which means today I am stiff and sore but it was so good! I think this week can definitely go in the ‘good’ category so far. How has yours been?
The Why Can’t Every Day be Halloween series from Dollish Polish is so stranger here on the blog. If you aren’t sure what I am talking about, let me tell you more. Dollish Polish has a monthly series of polishes called “Why can’t every day be Halloween”. These polishes are available from the 1st to the last day of the month and each month has a horror/halloween theme. This series started in October 2015 and ended in September 2016. In October 2016 Season 2 started. Because these polishes are only available for a month they are rather limited edition but at the end of Season 1 Dolly opened up the whole seasons worth of polishes for 1 month only. Not to mention the Dollish Polish Clearance bin where discontinued and retired shades go on sale. That’s why I make sure to show you all of them even if they are not available in store anymore. Chances are always good that you will have another opportunity to grab something you like.
Dollish Polish – Sometimes, Dead is better (October 2016, Month 1)
The inspiration for this polish is the Stephen King classic, Pet Sematary. It is described as cobalt blue with a green duochrome shit, loaded with teeny green, turquoise and red colour shifting micro glitters. This is 2 coats with topcoat. The formula is really great. It applies like a dream and the opacity is stunning. I can’t even explain how stunning this polish is. It is a beautiful shade of blue and the glitters are just perfectly distributed with the perfect combination of colours. In indirect light some of this glitter seems to just glow. Let me give you a closer look as well as a closer look at the stunning glitter in darker light.
Dollish Polish – The Elizabeth Dane (November 2016, Month 2)
The inspiration for this polish is John Carpenter’s, The Fog. It is described as a mauve-toned soft grey with tons of turquoise shimmer.
This is 2 beautiful coats with topcoat. I am obsessed with how soft and delicate this polish looks and when the light hits it, the shimmer just takes it to another level. The shimmer also looks different in different lighting. It helps that the formula is amazing! Let me give you a closer look with a variation in light too.
Dollish Polish – Santa claus will punish you (December 2016, Month 3)
The inspiration for this polish is the Christmas slasher classic, Silent night, Deadly night!. It is described as a scarlet jelly with ruby red micro glitters and green multichrome flakies.
This is 3 coats with topcoat but I am sure 2 coats would’ve been just as perfect. For a glitter packed polish like this, the formula is amazing! It isn’t thick and clumpy, it applies beautifully and as usual for a dollish polish, the perfect glitter density and distribution. I loooooooooooooooove how beautiful and shiny this polish is! If you like red polish. If you just THINK you like red polish. You need this one. This is next level red polish AND next level Christmas polish. I have to give you a closer look but let me tell you, these photos do this NO justice.
What do you think? Which one is your favourite? I can’t possibly choose a favourite. I have not been disappointed in any of the polishes in this series yet. In fact, I have a whole bunch of Series 1 polishes to still show you. In the mean time, drool over these with me if you want. I am already trying to think of ways to wear them again and nail art to combine with them. Let me know if you have any ideas. Don’t forget to make a note of your favourites in case they make an appearance again. 😉
Thanks for reading,
