Goblins, Ghouls and Spooky Bloody Mary Polish!

Halloween is fast approaching! It's the time of year for witches, zombies, high blood sugar and NAIL POLISH! Actually, isn't it time for nail polish all year?


I ordered some colors from the brand Bloody Mary. www.dearbloodymary.com It is a movie makeup line (and so much more)that has TONS of products. There are goth inspired items and they even supply camouflage face paint to our armed forces! They were easy to order from and sent some extras (pins, stickers and a cool mascara guard tool.) The only tough thing is the lack of decent swatches for their nail polishes. You really can't see the colors you are ordering and some aren't swatched at all. It's a little bit of a gamble! Now, onto the colors!!! There are some real gems in this collections! I hope they will release more colors in the deluxe line in the near future. Their polishes are $3.95 each.

Read on, if you dare! PS. I had to add a Elvgren pin-up witch. He is my favorite artist. :)
This is from their Signature polish collection. This is polish is called, "Black with red sparkle." It's a pretty black with tons of medium sized red glitter. There weren't any steel balls in this bottle so I couldn't shake up the glitter more. This is two coats with a top coat.
This is also from their signature collection. It is called, " Black with silver glitter." Exciting name! :) It's a black based polish with lots of silver glitter. I like how the glitter really stands out against the black. 2 coats with a top coat
This is also from the signature line. It's called, "Red with silver sparkles." The red stains the glitter and so it's more of a red with pink sparkles. It's a pretty red but the glitter is tamed by the consistency of the polish.
This is the last color from the signature line. It is called, White with silver sparkles." The glitter is gobbled up in this opaque white. I might try thinning it out a bit. This was 3 coats with a top coat.


This is the color poison from their new ultimate deluxe custom colors line. It is a really cool color. It has a steely, deep blue base with TONS of gold/green duochrome. It was easy to apply. This is three coats with no top coat.


This is the color decay from their new ultimate deluxe custom colors line. It's a deep, smokey purple base with a ton of the same golden duochrome as poison. Really pretty color!

*The site lists decay and poison as 'holographic.' They do not have prismatic glitter like what I consider holographic colors. These are what I call (not that I'm right) duochrome. Since, they change color in different light settings.
Lastly, is Wizard from the new ultimate deluxe custom colors line. It is a pretty shimmery red. It reminds me of a color OPI would do for Christmas.

I love those duochromey ones!! Also, totally love Elvgren! I'll tell you sometime of the weirdest story of, like, mobsters and copyright that I heard having to do with his art.

Some of those black base nail polishes remind me of what Milani has out right now. I'm glad I read through your post before I clicked 'buy' because when I saw HOLOGRAPHIC I was like buy, buy, BUY!! Muh-ah-ah! But then I saw that they were duochromes. Not anything against duochromes but I like holos WAY more.
Thanks for the post! Some of the other things on this site look awesome!

Love all of the nail polishes. Thanks for the site that I can check out. Glad that you swatched all of these. I can't get the Milani so maybe I can find something lik them on this site. I love your rings! Where did you get them? Love the pinup witch. I'll have to check out this artist also.

Phew! I couldn't comment until I switched to a pop-up comment box. Sorry! :)

GildedAngel: I really like them. I was super impressed with the duochromes. But, I'm a sucker for duochromes.

Evilangel: I bought the rings just for this post! What a goofball. :) I have always loved plastic spider rings.

Thriszha: Thanks! I love the mani in your avatar. Too cute!

Contestsnsuch: They are similar to the new milanis. Except, the glitter is way bigger in the bloody mary colors. When I saw holographic I did the same thing! Duochromes are just as exciting in my book. LOL!

Lucy: I got the rings at wal mart when I was stalking those gosh darn hard candy polishes! :) Elvgren was a great artist and is worth checking out. I'm really impressed with dearbloodymary's service and products. Hopefully, you will be too! :)
