OPI So So Skullicious Mini Lacquer Set for Halloween | Review + Swatches

The holidays are near!!! I always look forward to seeing what my fave brands have in store for their holiday collections especially nail polish. OPI has released a Halloween mini lacquer set called So So Skullicious. The pack includes four Dia de los Muertos-inspired nail lacquers. Check out swatches and my full review below! 

OPI So So Skullicious Mini Lacquer Set

Be all aglow in this flame yellow

Hi, Pumpkin! 
This jack-o-lantern orange is sweet on you


A-Rose from the Dead
This hot pink is the life of the Halloween party


Mourning Glory
A black so shiny, it will lift your spirits

The set also comes with cute nail decals! 

Glow: I love the presentation and packaging of this set, it definitely get's you in the mindset for Halloween. My favorite shades out of the four are Candlelight which is sort of a mustard yellow and Morning Glory -a jet black creme.

Glare: These polishes are teeny! Hence "mini" lacquers -duh! While they're cute to look at unfortunately they're not for someone with fat fingers like me lol (also hence the messy nails). I kept feeling like the brush was just going to pop out of my hand and dive across the room at any given dramatic moment. Alas it didn't but it was still quite a challenge to apply. Though Candlelight is my favorite color it was my least favorite to apply. It's pretty streaky and took me 4 coats to get an even opaque coverage. 

Would I Recommend It? Ehh, the shades are pretty predictable for a Halloween theme sans the pink. It's not a must have for me but it's a cute idea. I think the set might be more appealing to a much younger crowd (children). 

Where To Buy: The limited edition So So Skullicious Mini set is currently available at select retailers nationwide. To purchase, find a retailer near you, or to learn more please visit http://opi.com.
