Hey Everyone!!! Today is a good day. Mr. Neil went to the doctor and he doesn't have anything majorly wrong with him. Something upset his tummy and he is still not 100% better but the fact that he doesn't have anything major going on makes me feel more at ease. He also purred for me today which made me want to cry. He hasn't purred in days so that is very good news.
Today I have the last of the Oopsie Daisies Sanderson Sisters Halloween Trio polishes to show you. This trio was based on the Halloween movie Hocus Pocus. The polishes are available now.
The Sanderson Sisters Trio is based on the three sisters from the movie. For Thy Sisters, I'll Take Thee Away and Witchcraft.
I'll Take Thee Away is quite a stunner. Sometimes this one sometimes leans more purple and sometimes it leans magenta. You will see that it changes a bit in my pictures. The deep berry jelly base as it is listed comes packed with some stunning glitter in lilac, pink, purple and violet in various sizes and finishes. The purple in this polish is awesome. It also contains some very awesome pink holo dot glitter.
As with Witchcraft Cathryn adds a little baggie of extra pink holo dot glitter with this polish. The holo glitter is heavier and sinks a bit in the polish. The easiest way to get the dots to come out freely is by turning your bottle upside down for about 5 minutes before you use it. You can use the extra dots to either put more in your bottle of polish or place them on your nails where you want them to be.
For this mani I used three coats. It was really really hard to capture the correct color of this polish. I would describe it as a purple berry color. Very pretty, very squishy and quite fun too.
The application was great on this polish but I did have a little bit of trouble with those dots. I used only what was in the bottle so that I could review the polish based on what is bottled. The first coat I didn't worry about getting any dots out.
For the second coat I let my bottle stand upside down before using it in hopes that the dots would be easier to get out. For some reason I didn't get many dots at all on the second coat. I may not have left it upside down long enough because I know those dots were in there.
For the third coat I left the bottle upside down for quite a bit so I could get the glitter easier. It wasn't as easy as Witchcraft to get the glitter out but it wasn't terrible either. A few times I re-dipped the brush in the polish and on the second dip I got more than one dot.
In the direct evening sunlight my pictures came out more magenta but I wanted you to see the pretty glitter.
It is quite nice and I love those holo dots.
I just realized I think this polish makes me think of Franken Berry cereal. That is probably only because I don't know Sarah Sanderson from Hocus Pocus since I have not seen the movie.
I love how the edges of the dots show holo under the squishy jelly polish.
The dots remind me of the sun when they look like that.
Yeah, I took a ton of pictures for this one too.
I couldn't let this post go without trying a matte coat on this polish.
I love how it looks mattified.
I almost wore it another day just to keep it matte.
Which one of the Sanderson Sisters Trio is your favorite? I can't decide. You can pick up your favorite or all three of this trio now at Oopsie Daisies.
That's all for now :)
