I know Halloween is over, but I’m not quite done with the holiday’s polishes! Today I’ve got Sweet Heart Polish’s contribution to the Grim Grinning Ghosts duo (along with The Lady Varnishes), “Hurry Ba-ack.”
The duo is inspired by Disney’s Haunted Mansion. I love Disney, and I love the Haunted Mansion, so I was on board the moment I saw this duo. I hardly ever wear black polish because I think im too pale for it to work with my skintone- but this? This worked for me. Hurry Ba-ack is a black jelly with magenta, lime, and blue hexes, iridescent smal glitter, gold microglitter, and some serious gold shimmer. The depth to this is awesome- think “staring into a dark landscape” instead of the regular flat black of normal black polishes. (My inner nerd keeps wanting this polish to be called “Warp Speed” because it reminds me of the viewscreen in Star Trek when they engage warp. This polish is the final frontier!)
I was a super fan of the color, even if it does have me going on tangents about the Prime Directive. The formula was pretty good, even if I am generally challenged by jellies. The glitter was no problem at all, and it promptly managed itself without any input needed from me (whew!). I thought that the glitter density here was perfect. A few of the bigger glitters per nail and a nice even background of the smaller glitters. I used two medium coats here- three thin may have been the best choice, but I was really happy with the opacity in the end.
This is my first Sweet Heart Polish, but it won’t be my last. I liked the Grim Grinning Ghosts duo because it introduced me to two new-to-me indies in one fell swoop. I’m love the shades and colors in the Sweet Heart shop– especially the ones with Mickey Mouse glitter!
