Two Birds Hallow's Eve Duo

Hey guys! typing this while almost closing my eyes.  I've been so busy lately, as you might have read, and so I decided to keep up the blog from monday to friday.  By eliminating Saturdays for now, I'm hoping I can keep up for these 2 months and not sacrifice quality.  On this note, ignore my attempt at the ghost on the accent nail, I must not try nail art while tired >.<  These lovelies are from a fellow Blogger who has followed me from the beginning: See Sarah Swatch.  I was so happy when she sent me these for review, and I was quite honored as well.  She makes such gorgeous frankens.  I've been eying them since I've followed her blog.  You must check out her blog here.  This duo was made for Halloween, which is why I wanted to post it today.  Who Ya Gonna Call? is awesome in color, it's a true grey, which does not lean to blue or green.  It's not easy for me to find a good grey, something about my skintone always makes them look off.  It's a bit thick in formula, definitely creamy.  I don't know if I like the matte glitters in it, I really wish the blue ones were more sparkly, to be honest.  I do like the black ones in it, they look very bold.  Something Wicked was also thick (I think they might need thinner, although I wanted to show them to you as they came), but this one has a really nice jelly look after topcoat.  Gorgeous color, like strawberry jam with the seeds? yeah, this one looked almost edible.  I liked the fact that they were both two-coaters, and the coverage was excelent, but they could both use some tweaking on the formula.  I haven't tried the other Two Birds she sent, but they all look amazing.  The best part is, she sells mini and full size bottles, so if you want to sample these, you can always choose the minis.  Click here to like Two Birds on Facebook.

  1. I have heaps of Sandy and Sarah's frankens myself. And yep the formulas can be a little so-so but they are all awesome. I have my eye on some of their new ones too, but too poor!
