Model City Polish Halloween Collection: Swatches and Review

Good morning, dear readers! I am really excited to be sharing another Halloween collection with you today! Today's Halloween polishes are made by Nina of Model City Polish, and they launch tomorrow! The Model City Polish Halloween 2014 Collection consists of three beautiful polishes that are perfect for the holiday. Not only are the colours beautiful, they're scented! Let's check out some pictures!

Once Bitten
Once Bitten is a sheer crimson jelly polish with gold flecks in two sizes and fine gold holographic glitter. While I'm normally not a big fan of red polish, I absolutely adore red jellies! Once Bitten is gorgeous and my personal favorite from this trio. The colour deepens the more coats you add, and I chose to stop with two coats to get this lovely candy apple shade. I then added top coat for these photos. Once Bitten will be available in a light caramel apple scent- which is delicious, by the way- or unscented if you prefer.

Here Lies
Here Lies is a grey crelly blend with white and black flakies. It will be offered in an earthy scent with hints of sweet florals. Here Lies is *the* perfect grey polish for Halloween, and I am delighted to see it as part of this collection! This combination definitely reminds me of gravestones and cemeteries, and Nina really nailed this one!

Just Treats
If Halloween can be a little too dark or spooky for you, Just Treats is for you! Just Treats is a buttery crelly with blue, orange, pink, yellow, and green matte glitters in various shapes and sizes. It also glows green in the dark. Just Treats takes a sweet, light-hearted approach to the holiday, and I love this combo! I cannot pull off white-based crellies with my Mediterranean skin, and this buttery yellow base is the perfect solution. Just Treats will be offered in a sweet but tart candy scent. I used three coats for these photos and top coat for these photos. To help extend the life of the glow in the dark aspect, Nina suggests storing this one in a dark, cool area as extended heat and light exposure can shorten the life greatly.

I love the colours of this trio! The scents are pleasant without being overpowering, but they all will be available unscented if that is your preference. Use of a fast dry topcoat does not affect the scent.

The Halloween trio launches tomorrow, October 1st at 7PM CST at the Model City Shop located here. As a bonus for buying the new Halloween polish, there will be bonus themed items as well! Each bottle will come with an adorable Halloween-themed eraser, and those that buy all three polishes in this trio will get a Halloween hair tie (that can be used as a bracelet by short-haired readers like me). Model City Polish also offers cuticle oils, and new scents in Banana Nut Bread, Candy Corn, Caramel, and Sweet Tart will also be available.

Be sure to follow Model City Polish on Facebook and Instagram for more photos and announcements!

What do you think about this mini collection? Are you going to be picking up scented or the unscented versions? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!
