Hi guys! Today I have my first bit of Halloween 2012 goodies, I can't believe I managed to find these so early. I walked into my local beauty supply about a week and a half ago and was shocked to see these out. The owner of the place and I even had a conversation about how it was odd that they got them in July haha!
OPI's So So Skullicious mini pack for this Halloween is an awesome Dia De Los Muertos inspired set. At first I wasn't going to pick this set up but the awesome packaging and nail decals sold me....I think this makes me a sucker haha! I have photos of the packaging and the cute decals at the end of the post for those of you who want to see that!
A-Rose From The Dead is a pink creme. I'm sure it's a re-promote of another OPI but I don't own whatever it was previously called. I do enjoy the color, it doesn't feel traditionally Halloween-ish to me but it definetely goes with the theme OPI is using!The formula was nice on this one, I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Candlelight is a bright sunny yellow. I believe this is a renamed Need Sunglasses. I had formula issues here, I own Need Sunglasses and while it's not the easiest yellow to apply it was much better than this. I blame that stupid microscopic brush in the OPI mini's I used 4 coats of Candlelight for the photos below.
Hi, Pumpkin! is and orange creme. The formula was okay, the opacity was nice but I found it to be a tad bit streaky. I needed 3 coats to even it all out. This is not quite as red toned in real life (my camera hates orange polish, sorry!) The color IRL is closer to what you see in the bottle in the photos below.
Mourning Glory is a black creme. This is most likely a renamed Black Onyx. I love Black Onyx but the mini brush strikes again...I had issues with this. For any color other than a black the formula would be nice but for black usually if it's not a 1 coater I'm not interested haha! I used 2 coats of Mourning Glory for the photos below.
Check out the super cute packaging, I love the sugar skull!
Here are the decals that came with the mini set. I haven't tried them yet (saving them for Halloween) but they are awesome looking!
Unfortunately, I'm not sure of the official release date for this mini set. I found this at a non chain beauty supply. Hopefully it will be available at official OPI retailers like Ulta soon!
