I was really in love with Anne Kathleen’s Heather On The Moor collection for fall, so I was psyched when she asked me to check out her Halloween collection! When it comes to polish, Fall, Winter and Halloween are my favorite ‘seasons’, so I was definitely excited to see what she was releasing.
The Pumpkin Smashing Not Advised collection consists of 5 shades- Tabitha, Blair, Morticia, Autumn and Carrie. Let’s take a look!
Anne Kathleen Tabitha is described as a peachy-orange crème polish. I used two coats for the below photos along with Out The Door. The formula was great, not too thick or thin and went on very easily.
Anne Kathleen Blair is described as a pale yellow crème polish. I used two coats for the below photos along with Out The Door. The formula was really good for a yellow- not too thick or thin and although it was streaky on the first coat it evened up pretty quickly with the second coat. I probably could have gone for a third to make it completely even but two was good enough for my tastes. I do think this would be more flattering on someone with a darker skintone than mine.
Anne Kathleen Morticia is described as a black polish with a strong scattered silver holographic sparkle. I used two coats for the below photos along with Out The Door but it was honestly a one-coater, I always just do two out of habit. The formula was wonderful, easy to control and apply.
Anne Kathleen Autumn is described as a dark orange polish with a medium scattered silver holographic sparkle. I used two coats for the below photos along with Out The Door but just like Morticia, I honestly could have stopped at one. The formula was fantastic, perfect consistency and easy to apply. The perfect Halloween orange!
Anne Kathleen Carrie is described as a glitter topper with fine orange, fine black, and black holographic stars. I used one coat over Autumn for the below photos along with Out The Door. The formula was good, not too thick or thin and most of the stars came out without fishing.
Overall, I think this is a really cohesive Halloween collection with some great formulas, I can definitely recommend the quality of this brand! Again, this collection release on October 5th in her shop!
What do you think of this collection? Any that you’re planning to pick up? Are you just as excited for Halloween collections as I am? Let me know in the comments!
