Ooh La Lacquer's Halloween Polishes Part 2

I showcased most of Ooh La Lacquer's Halloween polishes in this post here a few days ago. I mentioned that I hadn't worn the one polish that I really wanted, so I wore it in combination with another one of her Halloween polishes, along with one of her other polishes.

Just some simple chevrons

The green is Ooh La Lacquer- Sumer. It is a bright almost neon green holo! Unfortunately the polish on top takes away the holo effect. It is also an awesome formula just like the other polishes from this collection.

I used mini chevron nail stickers from Nail Vinyls for the chevrons, and painted Ooh La Lacquer- Ectoplasmic Residue on top of those.

Lastly, I applied one coat of Ectoplasmic Residue on my ring finger, and applied two coats of Ooh La Lacquer- Beware of the Plastics (Mean Girls Collection). Such a perfect name! And also a gorgeous polish. It is one of those finely milled matte microglitters that is top coat hungry. So I applied one thick coat of Nail Pattern Boldness' Glitter food, followed by one coat of Seche.

Halloween Themed Drip Manicure

I have only done a few Halloween themed nails this year, and they are all purple and green themed for some reason. These are pretty simple, just an indie polish, topped with drip tips:

I loooove this polish!

The polish on bottom is Glam Polish- Frankenslime 2014. It is a re-release from last year, but I believe it is a different formulation and slightly different in colors. I am not too sure, around this time last year Glam Polishes were fairly hard to get for us American's. This is a slightly holo green base, with tiny matte green and purple glitters sprinkled in. I love it!

Then I just did the drips using a dotting tool, and the color is OPI- Do You Have This Color in Stockholm? (OPI Nordic Collection Fall 2014). It looks a little darker in these pictures than it does in person, but all in all fairly easy to work with.

Ooh La Lacquer's Halloween 2014 Polishes

Longtime no blog post....

I have gotten a few indie Halloween polishes this year, including the entire set of 4 that Ooh La Lacquer released. I died over the green since I don't have any holo like it, but I also don't have a grey like the one she released, so I just got the whole thing! The collection is Ghostbuster's theme, so I can't appreciate the names as someone who has seen the movie would....

Anyways, here are 3 of the 4 from Ooh La Lacquer's Ghostbuster's collection. Of course I didn't wear the one I wanted the most...

Just a simple glitter gradient

The purple is Ectoplasmic Residue, and the grey is I ain't Fraid of no Ghost. Both were two coats, and flawless formulas. The purple was nearly a one coater. These are some of the more opaque holographic polishes that I have tried from this brand.

The glitter is Eeek! It is a very finely milled glitter, it would take tons of coats to become opaque. It mainly consists of fine deep purple microglitters, and slightly larger metallic green glitters. Very appropriate for Hallowen.

I took these photos right before it was going to start raining, so the sunlight wasn't quite in my favor. So, the polishes don't look as holo as they are in real life. They also have a lot of fine shimmer in them which tend to take away the holo affect as well. I got a slightly blurry shot to show more of the holo and shimmer in the base colors, and more sparkle in the glitters:

You can get the entire set on her Etsy for $35, which is a few dollars cheaper if you were to get all of of them individually.
