Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Lifetime of Love

Gift buttonMorning all! I hope you’ve had a good week so far. Totally unpaid endorsement: I’ve been using the app Cozi to schedule appointments and share calendars with my hubby on his phone and it is working like a charm! We can share grocery lists (oh that reminds me!), and calendars, and other lists. Bonus: he’s actually using it. haha! 😛 Anyway, I have a custom polish from Carpe Noctem Cosmetics that was made for me a really long while back that I thought I had shown you already, but I guess not!

Lifetime of Love is a polish that was made based on my parents’ wedding photo. It’s a soft grey scattered holographic polish with a mix of black, white, holographic glitters and rusty red shards.

Empty Night is – to my eye – a blackened teal to blue to purple shifting shimmer polish. Formula was good, a bit thin but no flooding or running around.

This isn’t currently available right now but there are a lot more pretties in the shop! Let me know your thoughts on this vampy polish. 🙂

Formula was smooth, if a bit thin. I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. I wish the sun would have been cooperating more on the day I took photos of this beauty!

Beyond the Clouds is a grey-green based holographic nail polish with a coppery sheen and multicolored flakes. I wish the coppery sheen was more prevalent in person though!

The sun wasn’t really cooperating with me on the day I took these photos, but the holographic really shows up much better in person.

This was a polish to mark the second anniversary of CNC’s shop being open and it is still available! Isn’t it a beauty? You should go peruse the Carpe Noctem Cosmetics shop at your leisure.

Your thoughts on this polish?

This is 3 thin coats plus top coat. Formula was nice, not too thin and not too thick, for me. The flakes provided a really nice depth to the polish that I just really loved.

Carpe Noctem Cosmetics has a really great selection of unique polishes. The turn-around-time can be a little longer than other indie shops, just a heads up if that’s something you take into consideration when buying from an indie.

Let me know what you think of this beautiful green polish!
