365 Days of Color! Hocus Pocus Collection Swatches

Good evening!!! 

  This time around I have a Halloween collection that was released by indie brand 365 Days of Color. This was the very first Halloween Collection to make it into my hands this year. Sadly the surgery and all that non-sense happened shortly after I received these babies and I didn't have a chance to swatch them until recently. I.Feel.Terrible about that. Sunny mentioned that she would be re-stocking this collection on her shop today so thank goodness that they are still available! 
  This collection was inspired by the Halloween cult classic movie, Hocus Pocus. I remember seeing it only once as a little child and it scared the crapola out of me because I was way too young.. Also.. I didn't speak English at the time so I had no idea what was going on lol! Each color is inspired by an aspect of the movie, which I totally need to get on watching now that I am an English speaking adult lolol! 

365 Days of Color I Smell... Children over Pixi Amazing Amethyst
I Smell... Children is a Blackened base full of deep Purple sparkle and smalled Purple hexes. I am fairly certain this color could reach opacity on its own. However! I really wanted the Purple to show through so I decided to layer it over a vivid Purple base to get this amazing, glowing finish on my nails. I did Two coats of I Smell... Children over Pixi Amazing Amethyst. 


365 Days of Color Boouk! over Barielle Greenwhich Village
 Boouk! was my instant favorite from this collection. This pretty polish is made up of Chocolate hexes, Copper hexes and square Golden glitter accents in a shimmery, light Taupey base. For this look I layered it over a Pinky nude from barielle and then did Two coats of Boouk! This is a beautiful glitter and also perfect for Fall.

365 Days of Color Black Flame Candle
  Black Flame Candle is a sheer shimmery Black. This might actually do better layered over an opaque Black creme. What you see here is Four coats of Black Flame Candle. It is a really beautiful shade of shimmery Black. The shimmer seems to shift from Pink to Violet to Teal. Formula-wise it is sheer but buildable, next time I will definitely layer it so it lasts longer.

365 Days of Color Come Little Children over Barielle One Shade of Gray
 Come Little Children is a mix of small Red and Black hex glitters suspended in a clear base. The density of the glitter makes it a perfect layering polish. I am absolutely in lurrrrve with this combination of the Gray base with the Black and red touches.

365 Days of Color I Put a Spell on You over OPI A Rose from the Dead
 I Put a Spell on You is another perfect layering glitter polish. This pretty is made up Emerald Green hexes in varying sizes and small touches of Black glitter. LOOOOOVE it over this Pink base. It's an unexpected combination but it works so well!

  And there you have 365 Days of Color Hocus Pocus inspired Collection for Halloween 2012! Don't forget to check 365 Days of Color Shop to get your favorites! Hurry before they are all gone.

 Which are your faves? Mine are Boouk!, I put a Spell on You  and I smell... Children.
