Today I have a review of another lovely polish from the Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Samhain/Halloween Collection: The Blob!! Being that this is a part of her Samhain/Halloween Collection it is Limited Edition, so if you love this you'd better scoop some up quick! As with all her polishes, this is hand made and is 3-FREE as well as Cruelty Free. It comes in three sizes, small is 6 mL and sells for $3, medium is 12 mL and sells for $6, full size is 15 mL and sells for $9.
Her shop has a FREESHIP15 coupon code which qualifies any order over $15 in the United States for free shipping. She does offer international shipping, but the free shipping code does NOT apply on international orders.
Her shop description of this polish says,
"The blob is a magenta "crelly" with .118 holographic violet dots, 3 colors of purple/fuscia dots size.020, and a WHOLE mix of all my purple mattes/holos/and metallics.ANYTHING resembling a purple, went in :)"
I applied 3 coats of The Blob over my natural nail, no base coat, no top coat, and it looks fabulous! I really love the big circle chunks of glitter! And to make this even better, the glitter lays pretty smooth. After wearing this for a couple days I received my second order from her shop which included Glitter Slayer, which is a top coat specifically designed to go over glitter polishes. I tried it out over this polish (after I took this picture) and it made my nails totally smooth.
I wore this polish for about 4 days, maybe 5, and I had no chipping whatsoever. None of the glitter had broken off, there was no cracking. The polish removed easily and did not stain my nails.
Overall, this is a great polish. The formula is perfect, it dries quickly, the base is thick enough to keep the glitter from protruding off the nail like crazy, it doesn't chip or crack and it lasts a really long time. Oh, and it looks super friggin awesome!!!
I should let you guys know that I do post pictures of the stuff I try out on my Facebook page before I post them here, so if you want to see the cool little pretties I find as I get them you should go ahead and like KalamityJaneKosmetics on Facebook. But I'm off to finish up another post as well as make my kiddo's Halloween costume (yes I will have pics up on Facebook of her in her costume!!) so I hope you're all having a great week and do let me know if you decide to try out any of the awesome polishes from this shop! I've got my eye on a few more that are just gorgeous, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go broke if I keep lusting after her polishes lol. Til next time!
