An Intoxicating Grog: Witch’s Brew

There’s a pink giveaway going on at the Pink Vanity. Click here and enter.

Halloween is coming up so fast, I’m going to run out of days before I can do all my Halloween looks.

Here’s one that is my favorite for this season…

Β Check out Icing’s ‘Witch’s Brew.’ That is some concoction!!

‘Witch’s Brew’ is Icing’s 2011 Halloween collection. Out of an jelly orange glitter and a jelly purple with purple glitter, this one out of the bunch is my total, total favorite.

I’m intoxicated by ‘Witch’s Brew.’ If I were not a nail blogger, I would wear this shade all month. It’s a black jelly and has dark turquoise micro glitter in it.

I used Seche Vite as the top coat and you’d swear that you are looking up into a midnight sky. I used three coats of polish then one coat of Seche for this mani.

Have you seen this shade before? You probably have. ‘Witch’s Brew’ is a near dupe to a couple of other polishes available…

On the left is Icing’s ‘Witch’s Brew’, in the middle Sinful Color’s ‘What’s Your Name?, and last is Cult Nails’ ‘Living Water.’ Can you see how ‘What’s Your Name’ is more of a blue glitter?

And take a closer look at Cult Nails’ ‘Living Water.’ This polish has something the other two do not: luminosity. ‘Living Water‘ has turquoise glitter that looks like it is lit up. Hands down, the best looking of the three. I did a post on ‘Living Water.

It probably goes without saying that I’m a total sucker for clever names and ‘Witch’s Brew’ is one of them.

Next is a couple of random sharings.

Every time I am at a mall that has a Forever 21, I stop by. I’m compelled to! This is what I scored last week…

When I was in high school, there was this saying ‘I wouldn’t kick that out of bed for eating crackers in it.’ How horrible, blech! But that stupid saying came to mind when I photo’d these at the sunny window. I’m saving these for Christmas manis.

And lastly, last week my brother, sister-in-law and niece vacationed at the happiest place on earth, Disney World. I got to hang out with them a few days. I, too, am 12 years old when I’m with my 12 year old niece. It’s grand to have someone to play with. πŸ™‚

  • i'm not much for bar or chunky glitter…but I like that Icing polish πŸ™‚

  • great post. Did you smell the witches brew candle's..they are the bomb also!

  • MissMidnightBlue

    Your niece is adorably cute! I need/want that Witches Brew and that chunky holo glitter!!

  • I have no clue when it comes to nail polish lol. All I know is that they look great on other people and I can't apply them for crap lol. I love this color though and if I knew how to apply polish, I would so wear this anytime of the year.

    Cool finds at Forever21. Gotta glitters and sparkles.

    By the way, thanks for the info you left on my blog about Olive Oil πŸ™‚

  • I LOVE that Witches Brew. Just for the name, haha! I have some similar polishes too but dang, the name gets me. Your niece is so cute, look at that hat!

  • Witch's Brew looks mesmerizing! And woo hoo for getting the bar glitter. I'm so excited that we're seeing more companies make that kind of glitter again.

  • The Witches Brew looks amazing, and I'm loving all the glittery sparkly nail polishes. I'm not a big fan of them on my own nails, but I think they look dazzling on others! :]

  • B

    Ohmigoodness!! Is that bar glitter I see? Must.have! You're so wonderful and can't wait to see you again soon!

  • @destany Icing has come out with some unique shades this past year. I hope they keep up the trend.

    @EverythingsDiamond Where can I find Witch's Brew candles? I'd like to try them out.

    @MissMidnightBlue Karlie is one of my best friends. She makes me happy. πŸ™‚ Oh, I'm SO looking forward to swatching the glitters.

    @Everyday Makeup blog Oh, you are the expert on makeup though! I get some of the BEST tips from you. Miracle 7 Oil (from Sally's) has 7 oils and olive oil is noe of the main ones. GREAT for cuticles!

    @Nicole I took a very scary photo of hubs with the hat and hair wig from the Mad Hatter. Geez, I'm scared just thinking about it! I'll have to share (or frighten) my tweebs with it. Great name for this polish, indeed!

    @Swatch and Learn Mesmerizing, YES! love & beauty makes all types of glitter, as well as Kleancolor. I'm a happy nail blogger. πŸ™‚

    @Mimi I do, fully, admit I'm smitten with any size and type of glitter polishes. However, like a lovely bottle of wine, taking off that polish the next day is murder or, a hangover. πŸ˜‰

  • @B It was an honor to have you stop by too. πŸ™‚ Forever 21 will have this bar glitter just for you!
