As I mentioned last Sunday, da beauteous & very clever Emily from
Carpe Noctem Cosmetics contacted me to see if I'd swatch & review for her.
Of course I said yes with copious amounts of exclamation points.
In addition to da fantabulous Apothecary Corner products
that I reviewed last week, she also sent her
I Come From The Forest Collection that is debuting
Friday, September 25th!
These polishes were sent to me for swatching & honest review.
All swatches are 2 buttery smooth coats of polish over clear liquid latex
& one coat of Sally Hansen Dries Instantly top coat.
Let's get da drooling started!
Burning Bushes is a rich red linear holo with gold flakies
that wink at you from it's jellied depths.
Rainbows AND flakies in a red jelly
that remind me of Candied Apples?
Copper Canyon is a darker orange linear holo
with a subtle golden rose shift.
You can see a hint of the shift on my middle finger
just below the lamp reflection.
It makes me think of pumpkin spice lattes
& leaves fluttering from da trees.
Foliage In Flames is brighter than Copper Canyon
with it's bold orange jelliness, strong linear rainbow,
& gold flakies.
Faerie Synthesis is my fav of da litter
with it's buttercup yellow jelliness,
linear rainbows & autumn colored metallic flakies!
I know it leans a wee bit green in da bottle
a flaw of most yellow holos due to da holo pigment being silver
but Emily nailed it as it ain't greenish on da nail!
I Come From The Forest was da sneaky peak
of da collection & is available now.
This is da perfect darkish green for both fall & winter wear!
It has a strong rainbow & a golden shift.
From The Forest To The Sea is a pearly blue
with linear rainbows & a rainbow of metallic flakies too!
It also sports a subtle golden green shift
that while a wee bit camera shy
is gorgeous IRL!
Snowfall Serenity is that perfect vision
of da sun glinting off freshly fallen snow.
I don't know how Emily did it,
but she created a pearly white linear holo
that doesn't lean gray!
Add in da gold flakies
& you have a perfect polish for both
autumn & winter occasions.
Just look at that perfection!
