Alter Ego Nothing Good Happens After Midnight
A deep midnight blue jelly, reminiscent of the sky after midnight where cauldrons are being stirred, cackling is heard with the recitation of wicked spells.
No Cap

Super squishy and perfect for the fall season! The perfect polish for jelly sandwiching glitter or a stamping design in between! Shown is two coats with topcoat.

Alter Ego Spooky Soap
Made with a light fresh scent, not too floral. Suitable for a wide variety of noses!
Made with Cynthia's signature formula of unrefined shea butter, unrefined kokum butter, babassu oil, castor oil and enriched with Vitamin E oil. Each bar is at least 3.5 oz when cut. (cure time may reduce weight as moisture evaporates from each bar)
Cap 20

KBShimmer Light My Fire
Inspired by cool nights and bonfires, this polish will spark warm memories. The blackened base is filled with multichrome flakes that shift between orange, red, gold, and copper depending on the viewing angle. The magnetic pigment shows off a similar spectrum, with rusty oranges, golden yellows, and burning red tones. Use a magnet to show off the flakes and a fiery pop of flame-like color. The polish also has a scattering of micro holo flakes to add a little sparkle.
No Cap

Shown with two coats, no topcoat. I used a bar magnet to get the diagonal line effect.

KBShimmer Apple Harvest sugar scrub
The fragrance begins with notes of apple and then gives way to a sugary, creamy caramel note accented by subtle traces of cinnamon and stewed pears. I totally get caramel apple when I sniff and then this sort of creaminess becomes more noticeable as I keep sniffing it. This is one of those that you'll close your eyes and smile when you smell it.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Shivering Down Your Spine
An electric blue crelly filled with pink, color-shifting iridescent flakes
Cap 490

Beautifully vibrant blue shade and those pink shifting flakes show through so well! I love a good blue/pink combo and this one delivers.

Such spooky polishes! These brands have outdone themselves again!
Each polish is shown in two coats with glossy topcoat unless otherwise stated. Formula for each was good, as I typically find with indie polishes.
