I really like polishes that do stuff right out of the bottle. As you must know by now, I am completely unable to art so when I can open a bottle, put a couple coats on, and have something interesting come out, it makes me very, very happy.

I dig the almost jelly-like look with those pearly teal glitter bits in it. It’s got some depth, right? And some sparkle. And some interestingness without being too over-the-top. It’s moody and I like it.

It’s that new brush that I showed you in this MAC Transformations post and I love it ’cause it puts stuff precisely where I want it to go.

So pretties, that’s it. Lotsa pictures for two bottles of polish but if you use them in all the ways you can think of, I’ll betcha you can create something rather Rocky Horror Picture Show and rather breathtaking at the same time. And you know what? It’s just in time for Halloweeeeeeen!!!
MAC The Rocky Horror Picture Show 40th Anniversary Collaboration will be available in North America starting October 2, 2014 at MAC stores and online at maccosmetics.com. You gonna get you some polish? Huh?
