"This is Halloween" & "Fright Night: from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The nail polishes were provided for review.
Hi everyone! Today I have a couple more swatches from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics' Halloween Collection. "This is Halloween" and "Friday Night" are two of the most Halloween-y colors from the collection! They seriously scream "Halloween"!
To see some swatches and my review, click......
This is Halloween:
"This is Halloween" is suppose to be a neon orange crelly (cream and jelly hybrid) with black and holographic hexagons. In my opinion though, this looks like rotten pumpkins, but in the best way possible! It's definitely a love it or hate it color and I love it! It reminds me of jack-o'-lanterns rotting on the porch after Halloween has passed!
The formula was very smooth and the glitters spread nicely. I used three coats in the photos. The drying time was also good. The polish dries to a latex like texture so a topcoat is needed if you want shine.
Again, sorry about the horrible lighting, curse you rainy days.
Fright Night:
Next up is Fright Night and this one reminds me of vampires. The specks of red glitter suspended in a metallic gunmetal base look like drops of blood.
The formula of this is also very good, I used two coats in the photos. The drying time was great for this one as well.
Overall, I think Emily has done a really good job capturing the creepy and crawly aspects of Halloween with these two very unique polishes. What do you guys think?

Once again, these polishes will be available on the 5th, so in the mean time, head on over to the shop (use FREESHIP15 for free shipping on US orders over $15) and take a look at what other pretty polishes there are.
