It's beginning to look like Halloween! SoFlaJo: Spider Funk

Good morning, dear readers!  I have an indie treat to share with you, just in time for Halloween planning to begin!  I was really excited when I was selected to review a polish from the SoFlaJo Terrifed Collection.  Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and I *may* keep a few decorations out in my house year-round.  What can I say:  it makes me happy, and thankfully the hubby is supportive of my quirks.  :D  On to the polish!

As some of you already know, I am a big fan of orange polish, so naturally I was drawn to Spider Funk.  Spider Funk is made up of orange, red, black, and silver glitters that are suspended in an orange matte base.  I had seen it swatched both alone and over a black base, and I wanted to use something different to showcase this beauty.  I ended up swatching one coat of Spider Funk over three coats Sinful Colors Pull Over (the yellow) and two coats OPI Chop-sticking To My Story.  

No top coat used for the full matte effect

I wanted to give Spider Funk a chance to shine, so I then added two coats of Hong Kong Girl top coat.
Isn't it just gorgeous?!?  

The glitters are well suspended in the base, and no digging was necessary to get any of them out of the bottle and onto the nail.  Because this is a matte polish, it dries very quickly, so you do have to work quickly to get those glitters placed on the nail.  I have a little clumping of glitters on my middle finger since I started with it first and didn't even think about it being a matte.  I applied it faster when I was got to the other fingers, and you can see the glitters are distributed better.

I know more bloggers will be reviewing this collection in the very near future, and the rest of this awesome collection can be viewed here.

If receiving a Terrified polish from SoFlaJo doesn't put you in the Halloween spirit, I don't know what will!  Jody, the mastermind behind the brand, takes great pride in sending out her polishes to her customers, and she adds little extra touches that makes opening up your mail fun.  From Halloween stickers to confetti to little goodies, you will feel like you have started the trick-or-treat season a little early.

Spider Funk and the rest of the Terrified Collection (and other SoFlaJo polishes for that matter) can be purchased directly from Jody's website located here in both mini and full sizes.  Also, be sure to keep your eye on the SoFlaJo Facebook page for any updates and news of future collections.

Have you started preparing for Halloween yet?

Until next time, dear readers, stay good, or just don't get caught!  ;)
