Vivid Lacquer Once More with Feeling Halloween Collection 2013 Swatch, Review and GIVEAWAY!

 press sample 
The Halloween Collections are here! I'm not a huge Halloween (the holiday) fan, but I am a big fan of Halloween polishes. It's an opportunity to release some unique, fun stuff that doesn't quite fit in with any other season. Today I have seven polishes (and one bonus polish) from Vivid Lacquer's 2013 Halloween release called the Once More with Feeling Collection!  It includes seven scattered holos and one flakie shimmer. This collection will be available on October 10th. And you can win every last one of them PLUS the Vivid Lacquer Halloween stamping plate (VL013)!

Five by Five is a slate blue with a strong holo effect, even indoors. It's like magical.

Some Monster in her Man is a beautiful red/orange with pink shimmer. The shimmer with the holo gives it a really sparkly finish.

Bored Now is a purple holo with a green shimmer. Genius!

It Must Be Bunnies is a clean, very slightly grey white. I've been on a quest for a white holo and the addition of the slightest touch of red shimmer (which is hard to see in my photo) makes this one special. This one had the weakest holo effect.

I'm drooling over Band Candy, a brown holo (a brown holo!). I'll be sporting it at work for sure!

A Halloween Collection wouldn't be complete without a green and The Bitch is Back is it. I don't love green polish, but this one has a goldish shimmer which is nice. Plus the finish is amazing.

Demon Magnet is a steely charcoal gray. I love this in-between shade of not quite black, grey or blue...but yet all of them at the same time. It's really unique...but the name scares me. LOL.

The bonus shade is I'd Never Eat Your Brains. This is a companion to last year's If I were a Zombie. I'd  Never Eat Your Brains is a complex polish. It has an eggplant purple base with what seems to be red/blue or fuchsia shimmer and larger iridescent flakies. I used two coats of topcoat to make it absolutely smooth.

I love these polishes! Unfortunately, my indoor lighting isn't set up to get the maximum holo effect...but my pics do show a nice indoor representation. The formula was thicker on these than I'm used to with holos (which is actually a good thing) and I had no issues with application. All holo swatches are two coats with one coat of G&G HK Girl Topcoat.
