Dark Shadows Collection: Grave Mistake

Today I have the third polish in the collection, Grave Mistake.  This is a a deep, red jelly that really reminds me of blood.  However, as gorgeous as it is in the bottle it doesn't seem to translate onto my nails.  I found the formula to be really running and difficult to work with.  I wanted to love this polish, and my mind is still trying to get me to love it, but I'm disappointed.    The polish looks completely different in natural light compared to artificial.  It actually looks better in artificial lighting!! 

I applied 2 coats, but probably would have looked better with 3.

In order to present these polishes as accurate as possible, I did not apply a base or top coat.  You are seeing these polishes on their own with no help.

Indoor, fluorescent lighting:

  6. A fitting polish for the movie's theme but in general it's a bit boring compared to the others! Still nice though, just plain haha! :)

  9. I ordered Buried Alive and mysterious curse from this collection. While I love this color red, I'm sure I have a dupe for it!
