13 Manicures of Halloween - Day 13
Color: Cross Iron (China Glaze)Retail Price: $6.50 (USD)
This shade is from the 2011 Haunting collection. It’s a burnt orange foil, and it goes on extremely streaky. Normally, I’d consider the streakiness to be a negative feature, but it actually looks a little like the texture on a pumpkin, hence the accent nail art here. Use a small dotting tool or a toothpick to draw on the black details for a jack-o-lantern. You can do one accent nail like I did, or draw different jack-o-lantern faces on all your nails.
Much like Crimson, also from the same collection, the formula for this nail polish is super liquidy, but then it’s also weirdly impossible to only get a little bit of nail polish on your nail, so the polish gets everywhere. Super annoying, but manageable if you really like this color. Personally, it turns me off because it’s the color of my favorite college football team’s rival! ;) But otherwise, I think this shade is actually the best out of the entire Haunting collection. Then again, with Crimson and Near Dark totally missing, Cross Iron is the clear winner almost by process of elimination!
Thanks again to those of you who have kept up with my 13 Manicures of Halloween! I hope to have more manicure themes on my blog because this was a lot of fun. :) If you have any theme ideas, feel free to let me know!
