365 Days of Color: The Boy Who Lived, The Locket, The Ring and The Snake

365 Days of Color Horcrux Collection

Tonight I have 4 of the polishes from 365 Days of Color's Horcrux Collection. These polishes are, of course, based on the horcruxes in the Harry Potter series. There are seven total and I have 4 of them for you  now!

Continued after the jump...

First let's take a look at The Ring. This one is a blackened green and gold duochrome. It can be worn alone or layered over another color. There are great swatches of this one alone so I've layered one coat over a plain black creme with one coat of top coat. No issues at all with formula or application. Smooth and easy.

The Locket is an antique gold shimmer creme. I used 3 light coats of this one and one coat of top coat for the photos. The formula and application were good on this one as well. I did have bumps that you can see in the photos, but I believe that's a combination of the heat here and my base coat. The formula was smooth and creamy.

The Snake is a medium green creme with gold flecks. This one had a thinner formula, less opaque - so I've used 4 light coats of this one with one coat of top coat. This one had the trickiest formula of the 4 but it builds nicely.

And finally...The Boy Who Lived. This one is a blackened jelly base with various sizes of teal holographic hex glitters. This can be layered over several different colors, but here I've layered 2 light coats over The Locket and over a plain black creme. No issues at all with this one - all the glitters came out of the bottle easily and laid flat on the nail. One coat of top coat for the photos.
