Monster Polish: Purple People Eater and Monster Mash
As I mentioned on Facebook- tonight kicks off my week of Halloween manis! Every night through Halloween, I’ll be posting a Halloween mani- sometimes just a Halloween polish- indie and mainstream- maybe even a little bit of nail art!
I thought to start things off, I would- for the first time- show off my own creations here on my blog. I’m sure a lot of you have seen my frankens (Monster Polish) crop up here and there- Dulcie at Ohthreeohfour.com has posted about a few, Jen at Jen’s Nail Files has taken a bunch of pictures, and a few other ladies have posted on IG and my Facebook wall. I’ve given them away in friends giveaways, I’ve sold or swapped a few here and there- but for the most part I don’t really sell, and I’ve never shown off photos myself. Obviously that changes tonight!
I’ve long said I wouldn’t sell my polishes, and that it’s just a hobby- which is still true. But after a year and a half of this hobby, I have a lot of extras! So I’m going to start selling extra polishes through Big Cartel in the next few weeks. I won’t be carrying a permanent line, and most polishes will only have a few bottles available. If there is a very very strong demand for a particular color, I can try to make more- but when I make things I rarely write down the recipe. So if you’ve ever wanted a Monster Polish, keep your eyes peeled for my little store!
This Monster duo are the polishes I created for the Halloween Giveaway that just ended on Monday- so one of you may still be able to get your hands on them! Right now I don’t have any extras available for sale (don’t kill me!), though I could probably create more if there’s a strong interest.
First is Purple People Eater!
Purple People Eater is a light purple holographic polish with a faint blue flash. I used 3 coats for these photos- the polish is sheer, but builds well. The holographic effect isn’t super strong, but is definitely noticeable even indoors.
Second, I made a fun glitter topper called Monster Mash! (I stuck to a monster theme for these- it’s kind of my thing!)
I layered 1 coat of Monster Mash over Purple People Eater. Monster Mash is a glitter bomb chock full of most of the shades and finishes of purple, black, lime and orange glitters I had!
I did a bit of dabbing for placement, but this glitter polish is thick enough that it’s not totally necessary.
I’ll update information about when and how to buy Monster Polish as soon as I am able. Check back tomorrow for my Pumpkin Patch mani- it’s super simple, but fun!
