Hello nail geeks! Are you guys ready for some spooky, but electric colors that channel Halloween?? I know I am. Bring on the FALL!! We’ve had a bit of a ‘cold front’ here the last few days (or as cool as it gets in the South) but I can pretend we have crispy leaves and foggy mornings right? Night Owl Lacquer is releasing a six piece set, a creme of the month, and a two year anniversary polish starting tomorrow to bring on the witches and ghouls! Let’s go!
*For the sake of preserving the quality on my swatches, I have not color edited them at ALL. Given that these are neons, they blasted my camera into space on the contrast so I’ll be noting if I feel like it is pulling too far off.
Bubbling – a neon orange with black shreds, white shreds, silver holo micro shreds, rainbow iridescent slices, lime/gold iridescent hex glitter and a dusting of silver shimmer.
Swatches show two coats with Patience Not Required topcoat. This is pulling very red toned to me (at least on my monitor). In person, it’s a brilliant, bright neon orange base. I went heavy handed with the topcoat and had mostly smooth nails. There is the teeniest, tiniest amount of texture but I figured it was worth mentioning. Easy formula and built up to full coverage in two coats. As a blanket statement for the Haunting Night collection, I’d like to note that I did not have to fish or give any effort in picking up the glitters and shreds. The brush pulled up just enough with all of them.
Cackling – a neon purple with black shreds, white shreds, silver holo micro shreds, rainbow iridescent slices, orange/green iridescent hex glitter and a dusting of silver shimmer.
Swatches show three coats with Patience Not Required topcoat. Another with minuscule texture after a decent coat of the quick dry. I think this one is pulling way off. It’s leaning fuschia, but trust me in person it is a true neon grape-like purple. Ignore the pinkness radiating here. Beautiful color, and I really liked how the shreds popped against the base! This is the ‘thinner’ one in the collection, so I think those will free edge will be good to go at three thin coats.
Slithering – a neon yellowy green with black shreds, white shreds, silver holo micro shreds, rainbow iridescent slices, orange/green iridescent hex glitter and a dusting of silver shimmer.
Swatches show two coats with Patience Not Required topcoat. Ah, yes. Another that was blown up by my camera. It’s looking super pistachio to me here, in person it’s a brilliant neon green with just the slightest white undertone to it. Again, mostly no texture- just a tiny bit after NOL’s topcoat was added. Lindsey knows her greens, so if you’ve been following along on releases as a fellow neon green lover- you must get this one!
Rattling – a black jelly white shreds, silver holo micro shreds, rainbow iridescent slices, lime/gold iridescent hex glitter, orange/green iridescent hex glitter and a dusting of silver shimmer.
Swatches show two coats with Patience Not Required topcoat. I loved how glitzy the black base gave to the overall look here. It’s super sparkly, and those shreds really pop! In my swatch video you can see how blingy Rattling is, like the others in the set, the shreds and flecks all behaved and I barely had any true texture to my nails.
Shrieking – a white crelly with black shreds, silver holo micro shreds, rainbow iridescent slices, purple/blue iridescent hex glitter and a dusting of silver shimmer.
Swatches show three coats with Patience Not Required topcoat. I had full opacity at three coats, however if you have short nails I think two will be just fine. The purple/blue iridescent glitters here are being shy but in person they give a lovely contrasting sparkle again the white base. Formula has a creamy feel while applying and the base spread very easily over the nail.
2 Year Anniversary Polish:
This will be priced at $12 and will be a limited edition polish that will only be available through Oct 31st.
Endless Night – a blackened teal base with blue/purple/red/gold multichrome shift and holographic micro flakies.
Swatches show two coats with Rebel Base as my base coat, and Patience Not required topcoat. I love this one so much! I made sure to swatch it last so that I could wear it for the rest of the week and truly enjoy it. I found that the Rebel Base coat and Patience Not Required topcoat really complimented the polish itself and I had very minimal wear during the week that I wore this, until I had to take it off for more blogging. Formula has a nice medium dense feel and applies opaquely. The microflakes laid down flat and there was no texture after topcoat. In person you’ll see the inky teal base and the multichrome pigment appears as a rich inner blue, on angles you’ll see the purple come out to the play with red and gold appearing on extreme angles.
Last but but not least, the Creme of the Month!
Pumkpin Everything– a bright pumpkin orange creme
Swatches show two easy peasy buttery smooth coats with Patience Not Required topcoat. Application is flawless, per usual with NOL cremes. This is color accurate to me, it’s a bright pumpkin that is literally Halloween in a bottle. No undies here!!
The Haunting Night collection will be priced at $42.00 and they will also be available individually at $9 each. The anniversary polish will be $12 and LE, so it’ll be around until 10/31! The 1 year anniversary polish (Nightfall) will also be available for grabs during that time frame as well! Pumpkin Everything will be $7! All of these beauties will release tomorrow, 9/28 at 7pm MDT.
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
