This version of Black Magic is a dense charcoal glitter with round, orange glitter peppered throughout. It's not super opaque on its own, but it would probably make a good layering polish. I did three coats and was pretty satisfied with how it looked. I did two coats of topcoat to smooth it out. The formula was actually runnier than I'm used to for a glitter, but it was manageable. I'm still seeing this at Walgreens whenever I go, so I think it should be easy to find.
So, last week it snowed. Yes friends, on October 24th Cleveland had its first snowfall. And no, it wasn't just some flurries. Behold:
That didn't stop us from throwing a little Halloween bash on Saturday. As you know, Halloween is my very favorite holiday, so I was pumped to decorate our apartment, make food, and have people in costumes over. Also I carved this pumpkin:
It was supposed to be a mummy. It looks...okay? Remy wasn't impressed.
We got a punch bowl (and I made a really awesome punch including pomegranate juice, orange juice, seltzer, and plenty of rum; the pomegranate juice made it blood red), and Remy immediately decided it was his home and that he would bop any intruders right on the head. Don't worry. We washed the punch bowl before putting punch in it.
I got a Cinderella costume at the end of September. Ben wanted me to be something girly, so this is what I picked. Then I decided that was a little boring so I did some makeup and went as dead Cinderella. I think it turned out pretty nicely.
And here's a little family photo I took the morning after the party. Yes I wear a sleep mask. Remy likes to have cuddle time every morning and we are only too happy to oblige.
I think that I will probably go as something with less involved makeup for actual Halloween. But all I'm doing that day is helping my parents pass out candy to trick-or-treaters (which I love doing and can't do at my apartment). I'll be sure to snap a picture of whatever I decide to do. Ben and I are currently watching episodes of Tales from the Crypt, and I love having excuses to watch things like this. Halloween! It's the best.
That's all for today. I'll try to get another post up before Thursday because I think I have at least one other seasonally appropriate polish to show you. Until then, happy Monday!
