My Ten Friends: In Space, No One Can Hear You Scre-
In Space, No One Can Hear You Scre- is the new My Ten Friends (MTF) Halloween collection that is launching on the brand's birthday!
The set consists of three beautiful or should I say spooky glitter polishes: Galaxy of Terror, Vampire Planet and Alien Blood. MTF is also re-releasing 42, a polish that had been discontinued for some time. Good things come in threes, so in addition to these special launches, the first ten orders placed will get Astronaut ice cream added to their box and she's doing giveaways! (one of them is here at xoxojen!) Its a huge party and you're all invited!
Vampire Planet is a gorgeous vampy glitter polish. When I got it out of the bottle onto my nails I was in awe! Its stunning! Its got this beautiful raspberry jam base, packed with purple sparks, black matte glitter and lots of magic! It applied a little thick so some finessing was used to cover the nail; however, Mei Lynn is working to thin it slightly for easier application.
Galaxy of Terror is absolutely packed with glitter. This could be a one coater if applied heavy, but I used two thin coats. The bright red glitter simply pops among the silver holo glitters and charcoaly base.
Alien Blood is the one that caught my eye immediately when I opened the package of the set. I'm a sucker for square glitter and that bright green color is one of my favorites. It applied like a dream and in two coats was opaque. I could wear this polish for weeks and love every minute of it!
42. What is 42 anyway? Its the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. The polish was one of the first polishes MTF launched back in October 2012. Due to glitter source changes, this one was discontinued and has now been reformulated! yay!
First, a comparison of the original and new 42 in the bottle and on the nail. The original is more of a periwinkle blue while the new version is a little more teal; however layering the new version over blue may get a very similar result to the original. I wore two coats of each on the nail for the side by side comparison. The new formula seems to be more sparkly and holo, which I absolutely love!
Because I'm nostalgic and a bit of a procrastinator, I'm sharing my photos of the original 42 from way back in November of 2012 that I had not blogged yet. (eep!) This is two coats alone.
And now the new formula which will be available tomorrow! 42 still has a similar look with gorgeous huge chunky hex glitters, the bright matte blue glitters and all the sparkly micro glitters. I love how the base color allows the glitter to show through, yet is opaque in two coats. The jelly base lends a certain flexibility to the polish, allowing it to be worn over many different colors for a completely different look!
