Urban Decay Apocalyptic Nail Kit

 - by Playing with Polish

Priced at only $13, Urban Decay’s Apocalyptic Nail Kit is a fun holiday gift or stocking stuffer for the nail polish lover in your life (or maybe a holiday goodie  for yourself :-D )! It looks like the kit is a Beauty.com exclusive. It contains 7 mini polishes: White Widow, Gunmetal, Apocalypse, Grunge, Meltdown, Big Bang and Fbomb.

Big Bang

Big Bang is a bright raspberry pink foil. It looks more red in photographs than it did in real life. IThis bring pop of shimmery color is just what I need for dreary overcast days! :-) I have been wearing this one for three days, and it is holding-up quite well. I often find that foils do not wear well on me, but this one is a wear winner. :-)

Application was good. Two coats and a top coat shown.

I will try to get swatches of the other colors soon. I also have some other well-priced kits to review as I think they would make great holiday gifts! :-D

Sephora by OPI Halloween 2010

 - by Playing with Polish

This year I have been having a lot of fun with holiday polish. :-)

Kitty Loves Black

Kitty Loves Black is a slightly sheer dark charcoal grey with teal shimmer. I like it! The shimmer gives it a nice depth on the nail. I could see myself wearing this beyond Halloween. :-) Please excuse the cat hair that sneaked into this picture!

Application was good. Two coats and a top coat shown.

If You’ve Got It Haunt It

A chunky multi-colored glitter in a somewhat sheer soft black/dark charcoal base. It is pretty opaque after two coats. This is ok, but I don’t love it. I think I would like it better if the glitter was a bit more fine, or if it was a holo glitter.

Application was a bit uneven, but a top coat leveled it a bit. Two coats and a top coat shown.

Full Moon

Full Moon is a white crème. It does glow in the dark, but not very strongly. For the price, $9 a bottle, I expect a bit more. A $3 drugstore glow in the dark polish would probably perform just as well.

Application was a bit streaky and uneven. It dried a soft matte, but needed a top coat to even it out. Three coats and a top coat shown.

Kitty Loves Black is pretty, but overall I liked Color Club’s Bewitching set more than these.
