Retro Sunday Squared - Vintage Streetwear Oct 31st!

Happy Retro Sunday Squared everyone!! All this month, Dana at Polished Claws Up and I have decided to show you some of our best vintage Halloween polishes and we are so excited to bring you guys vintage Revlon Streetwears today =) If you are new to my blog, Revlon Streetwear is a brand that was available in drugstores in the late 90's-early 00's and is one of my favorite vintage polish brands of all time because they really did some unique and fantastic polishes. Dana and I decided to only showcase one vintage Halloween Streetwear for you all today, but to do some layering combos with the polish we chose! Hope you all enjoy!

For my vintage Halloween Streetwear, I chose Oct 31st. Oct 31st was the ultimate #1 polish on my wishlist for a few years and I never thought I would see the day where it would be mine. Well, a few weeks back it popped up on eBay and I bid my little heart out on it and finally it became mine =) Streetwear Oct 31st is a polish from back in the late 90's and it hasn't been sold in stores for over 10 years so it is super rare and if you own a bottle, consider yourself very lucky because it just doesn't show up often anymore. Oct 31st and I are now living happily ever after together.

Streetwear Oct 31st is an orange bar glitter in a clear base with little orange and black microglitters in there as well. It is best layered, so I chose 3 different layering combos for you all today. Being that it is such an old polish, I expected application to be a bit tricky but it was smooth as a whistle! I LOVE YOU OCT 31ST!! Now that I have that out of my system, hope you all enjoy the pictures! Keep in mind that every combo has only one coat of Oct 31st over the base color.

Don't forget to check out Dana's vintage Halloween Streetwear today over at Polished Claws Up!
