Dollish Polish Spectral Pup!

 Hey guys! My second post of the day... :) Halloween again! Today I have for you Dollish Polish Spectral Pup. I missed out several chances to get this one and was getting close to giving up when I found it in a blog sale, hurray! I was super happy to get my hands on this one due to its Nightmare Before Christmas inspiration, which in case you aren't aware is one of the greatest movies ever :P Plus, it is so pretty and delicate, not to mention glow in the dark! The polish is a mix of orange and white small and microglitters, white medium sized glitters, and a fair amount of holo microglitter. I really liked how ghostly it looked in the bottle and didn't want to overpower that, so I used Ozotic 527 for the base. Ozotic 527 thinks it is a light pink holo, but there really is no holo to speak of... it is a pretty neutral light pink though, a little thick but acceptable opaque in two coats, which is rare for lots of light pinks. The overall mani turned out exactly how I was hoping, check it out!

indoors, natural light
outdoors, sun
On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off Base Coat
2 coats Ozotic 527
2 coats Dollish Polish Spectral Pup
1 coat Seche Vite

I spent forever trying to get a good glow in the dark shot for you guys... as you might know if you've tried to do this yourself, this involves spending a fair amount of time "charging" your nails in the light, shutting yourself in a dark room, frantically taking as many terrible photos as you can until the charge wears down... and then repeating, until something becomes adequately acceptable. I finally turned to a tutorial that helped me at least capture my nails and not just the bottle... which made me happy! :)
blurry, but at least you can see it!!
I really do adore Nightmare Before Christmas, Jack, Sally, Zero, and the whole gang, (I even have the plushie Zero to prove it!) so I was really happy with this totally spot-on polish! In fact, I might just go watch the movie now :)

Zero approves!
Have a great day! ♥
