NOTD: OPI So So Skullicious Halloween 2012 Mini Set Collection

Today, instead of featuring just one nail color, I am featuring four – all of which are a part of OPI’s So So Skullicious Halloween 2012 Mini Set, which is actually a Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) Collection (that comes packaged in the cutest box ever, and includes Day of the Dead-inspired nail decals – you can see pictures of the packaging/decals at the end of this post). Swatch time!

This is two coats of A-Rose from the Dead, which is a really pretty bright pink. OPI states: This hot pink is the life of the party. The formula on this shade was perfection – super easy to work with. Unfortunately, I had a wonky brush that was somewhat uncooperative; but overall this one was awesome.

Accessories: Forever 21 Cutout Heart Ring Set in Gold.

This is four coats of Candlelight, which I would describe as egg yolk yellow. OPI states: Be all aglow in this flame yellow. The formula was really thin on this shade, and required four coats for full opacity. That said; this is my favorite color from the collection. I absolutely love the shade, which is a fall-leaning yellow that has a bohemian ambiance to it (I think it would look gorgeous paired with paisley), as opposed to a bright, summery yellow. I would buy a full-sized bottle of this color.

Accessories: Star Ring via unknown.

This is two coats of Hi, Pumpkin!, which is a bright orange crème. OPI states: This jack-o-lantern orange is sweet on you. Application-wise, this was my favorite out of the entire collection – the brush and formula were both perfect here. Hi, Pumpkin! screams fall to me – I kind of wanted to run out and grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks when I was wearing this. Not necessarily unique, but very pretty…and how cute is that name?!

Accessories: Dara Ettinger Angelica Ring last seen here.

This is two coats of Mourning Glory, which is a brooding black crème. OPI states: A black is so shiny, it will lift your spirits. I found that the super small brush made using a black polish daunting, as it was so simple to make mistakes. If it weren’t for the brush, this would have been a one coater for me. Nevertheless, I do love how impossibly chic this color is. It makes me think of Kristen Stewart, vampires, and Twilight - so perfect for Halloween!

Accessories: Forever 21 Burnished Oval Ring in Red / Gold.

And the pièce de résistance…the packaging! The bright colors are so incredibly adorable; and I just love the sugar skull. I didn’t try the nail decals myself; but I think they would look so fantastic as an accent nail.
