Leesha's lacquer Halloween Collection (2014)

Today I bring you the limited Halloween collection by +Leeshas Lacquer.
Alicia (Leesha), who got really addicted to mixing up her own lacquers, decided to take her passion to the next level and opened her own Etsy shop August 2013.
Leesha's Lacquer is 5-free, cruelty free, and Vegan friendly!

I was planning to give each lacquer a single post but as the collection is already available, 
I decided to give you all the scaryness right away ;-D
So be prepared for a heavy post.


The limited Halloween collection features 4 lacquers.
From left to right:
Halloween collection is available from October 1st - November 30th 2014.

Goosebumps


Goosebumps is named for it's microfine goose-bump looking glitter.
This clear base is loaded with black, orange and purple micro holo glitter.
Coats suggested: 3-4 for full opaqueness.
Application was easy.

Pictures of swatches show 3 coats and topcoat.

For the nail art I decided to go for some creatures that give us goosebumps :D
A green mummy monster and a creepy ghost.

What is this, skull-duggery?!


What is this, skull-duggery?! is inspired by the term skullduggery, which refers to the "tricks" portion, rather than the "treat" of Halloween. 
This lacquer has a crelly base (leaning to a very light minty green, perhaps due to the neon green micro glitter). It contains black and neon green micro glitter, big black hexes and orange shards.
Coats suggested: 2-3
Application was easy.

Pictures of swatches show 2-3 coats and topcoat.

Now of course I was triggered to try this under black light.
Wouldn't this be great for that Halloween party with black light ;-D

As inspiration for my nail art I've used this image:
Meet Skullduggery Pleasant, main character of the Skullduggery Pleasant novels by Derek Landy.

Thank, Mr. Skeltal


Thank, Mr. Skeltal is inspired by Trumpet Skelton of the Abyss.
Granting good bones and calcium to all who Thank, Mr. Skeltal


Thank, Mr. Skeltal is a black scattered holo, with sprinkles of good bones and calcium throughout :D
Coats suggested: 1-2
Application was a bit tricky. On the thick side and really, really fast drying. I had no trouble to make it work as a topcoat smoothed everything out, but I did mention it to Alicia and she makes sure the future lacquers will be less thick.

Pictures of swatches show 1-2 coats and topcoat.

For the nail art I've used this image of a trumpet skeleton:

Creepy Cauldron


Creepy Cauldron is inspired by two words that truly define Halloween; Creepy and Cauldron.
Who doesn't think of witches and skull-duggery and tricks and treats and all that good stuff?!
Creepy Cauldron is a clear base filled with various sizes and colors of purple and green glitters, as well as iridescent orange color shifting glitter.
Coats suggested: 3-4 for full opaqueness but this would make a great 1 coat topper!
Application was like other heavy glitter lacquers; it requires some placement on the nail.
My first thought with this lacquer was: "peacock".
The colors are a perfect match.

Swatches show 3-4 coats and topcoat

For the nail art I really wanted to show the lacquer more as a topper.
I've painted a creepy cauldron spilling Creepy Cauldron potion!
