A Halloween Duo: Napoleon Perdis’ Santorini Sunset’ and Orly’s ‘Just The Right Amount Of Evil’

I get such a delight seeing the pumpkin patches show up for Halloween. When I lived in Virginia, there was a farmer’s market very close to my house. Not only did I look forward to seeing the pumpkins show up, but they’d have one of these too…

And, I also look forward to having Halloween-inspired nails. This orange shade is just plain fun…

The polish is by Napoleon Perdis. He is a makeup artist and has his own line of products. I tried to find out where to purchase these polishes and it appears that Sephora used to sell them. But when I checked their site, none were listed. Same thing with Napoleon Peridis’ own site. There are just a couple on ebay, at this time. I’m thinking this polish is somewhat hard to come by.

This polish is from the Chandelier line and is named ‘Santorini Sunset’. I loved the orange shimmer shade right off. When we have meet ups with the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida, we have a product swap. This was in the box and my eye went right to it. I didn’t have a Halloween look intended, but it worked out that way…

With a total of three coats, ‘Santorini Sunset’ was still sheer enough that some nail line was showing. But, I had to really look as close, as this macro shot, to see it. Under normal circumstances, it was not noticeable. This polish applied very evenly and easily. I did add a top coat of Lumos to keep the tips from wearing down.

A trick to help cover up visible nail lines (VNL) is to put a glitter top coat on. That’s what I did to complete the Halloween appropriate nail look…

Orly comes up with some of the cutest and coolest polishes for holidays. This is ‘Right Amount of Evil’, one of the 30+ polishes from their Flash Glam FX Collection. A collection, I may add, that I feel the need to own completely.

This polish does work best as a top coat because the base is a very translucent, jelly orange. I didn’t like how it looked alone. I wanted all of that iridescent bar and hex glitter to show. The orange micro-glitter wanted to sparkle. And there is just a pinch of magenta micro-glitter in there to keep you guessing. I guess I’ll be wowed…

As the days get shorter, this orange fire light casts a cheery Halloween look. Hopefully, a bright enough light to chase away even hale bale spiders.

  • Oh that looks great on you! I have that orange too! IDEAS!

    • Kelly, this is an orange that I think would suit a lot of different skin tones. I have shied away from orange for decades because it did not look good with my fair complexion. So, I don’t know if I have changed skin colors (gotten a bit darker) or if they are making ‘cooler’ tone oranges, or what. But, I find that more and more oranges can look OK on me. And this polish is a ‘WOW’!!
