I recently showed you the first polish I bought from Freckles Polish, Caipiriniha, a gorgeous green holo. So when I heard that Julieann (Freckles Polish) was releasing 2 new collections, I vowed I would buy at least one from each collection, and that I did. I bought Kicking Up Leaves from the Autumn Dreams Collection and Pumpkin Pie from the I’m Spooked Collection.
Kicking up Leaves is a gorgeous copper polish that leans slightly towards a rose gold colour in certain lights and has a strong linear hollow.
It has a fantastic formula, applying smoothly and evenly. Photos show 3 coats as it seemed a little sheer and no topcoat. Dry time was very quick and the polish dried smooth.
I also saw a tweet about someone who had stamped with a Freckles Polish Holo and it had worked really well, so I thought I might give it a go with this one. I wanted to stamp some nice Autumnal leaves on my ring finger but believe it or not, this is the only leaves stamp I have 🙁 but regardless of the stamp, the polish stamped amazingly well. Very impressed with it.
As is usual for the British weather, the moment I apply any holo the sun disappears, and that is exactly what happened the moment I applied Kicking Up Leaves, so trying to get a decent photo of the holo proved a mission in itself. So please excuse the terrible quality of these ‘holo’ photos as they were done with a phone with it’s flash on.
This was the best holo I could get, but believe me, the holo is very strong in this one.
I love holo polishes and this one is no exception.
So the second polish I bought was Pumpkin pie from the I’m Spooked Collection and Oh my gosh I love it.
Pumpkin Pie is a clear base glitter topped with yellow, white, orange, red, copped and black glitters in multi sizes of Hex, squares and rectangles. Photos show 1 coat of Pumpkin Pie over Barry M Black with no topcoat.
The formula on this one was a tiny bit tricky, I found that I could literally only swipe once over a certain area otherwise I would get a massive clump in one spot and the more I tried to fix it, the worse it got. I think it looks beat sparse anyway though, the more glitter on one nail, the less you would be able to see the shapes and sizes and colours of the glitter.
I added a little pumpkin to my ring finger and of course the nerd in me insisted that I had to add a Pi symbol, as in Pumpkin Pi, get it? 😐
I love adding a matte top coat to glitter toppers, I find that is the only way you can ever make them better and Pumpkin Pie did not disappoint with this either, my pumpkin did a little bit but certainly not this polish.
