Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Once Upon a Time

Happy October everyone!! As many of you know, October is my favorite month of the year for many reasons, but mainly for two reasons: Halloween and my wedding anniversary. Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday of the year and the husband and I even had a Halloween themed wedding. Anyways, I wanted to celebrate the month of October by wearing as much Halloween polish as possible so be prepared for a Halloween extravaganza this month!

Since I showed you all some vintage Fantasy Makers polishes yesterday, I figured I would show you one of this year's Fantasy Makers polish, Once Upon a Time. This polish was sent to me by my wonderful friend Arlyn who knows how much I love Halloween and how special the month of October is to me. Thank you so much girl <3 Fantasy Makers are available at drugstores here in the US and are often times found in the Halloween section, NOT the cosmetics section so sometimes you do have to hunt for them!

Fantasy Makers Once Upon a Time is a dark grey jelly packed with red hex and small glitters.  It is reminiscent of Lippmann Ruby Slippers and NYX Dorothy, but made way more awesome by the addition of a tombstone shaped bottle! The jelly base of Once Upon a Time is pretty sheer so I layered one coat of it over yesterday's Fantasy Makers Glitterin'. This combo definitely screams Halloween to me!

Here's 1 coat of Fantasy Makers Once Upon a Time over vintage Fantasy Makers Glitterin'. Enjoy!




What do you guys think? Have you picked up any Fantasy Makers polishes recently?
