"A Place at the Table" & "Reflection in Flames" from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The nail polishes were provided for review.
Hey guys, this will be the last post of Carpe Noctem Cosmetics' Halloween/Samhain Collection swatches. I saved two beautiful layering glitters for last.
"A Place at the Table" consists of red square, hexagon, and hearts with black bar and hexagon glitter suspended in a clear base.
"Reflection in Flames" consists of holographic orange and black hexagons suspended in a clear base.
Both of these colors feel very Halloween, let's tak a look at some swatches......
A Place at the Table:
I paired this smashing glitter with a cool grey from Girly Bits and I think it ended up looking rather nicely. The glitter reminds me of the evil Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.
I used two coats in my photos. I had to do some fishing to get the hearts out of the bottle but the smaller glitter pieces applied just fine.
Reflection in Flames:
I haven't noticed this before but I think Emily, the creator of these polishes, actually tried to mimic what flame looks like with the glitters in this polish. The orange hexagon look like the fiery part of the fire, and the holographic glitter are the sparkes. The black hexagons, naturally, represent the smoke and ash.
Here I paired "Reflection in Flames" with another polish called "Divination" from the same collection. The application of the glitter was very even and smooth. I used two coats.
We have come to an end with the beautiful polishes from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics' new collection, sniff sniff. I had so much fun swatching these gorgeous and unique polishes.
