365 Days of Color - Boouk! and Cuticle Oil

I can't believe it's already the 14th! It seems Halloween will be here before I know it, and I still have so many great Halloween polishes to share with you all. One that I've been dying to try for a while is called Boouk! from 365 Days of Color.


Boouk! is a polish from 365 Days of Color's Hocus Pocus collection, inspired by the movie Hocus Pocus. Boouk! is a sheer neutral base with some shimmer to it. It is filled with different glitter, mostly copper in color. It has both darker and lighter copper hexes, along with some finer goldish squares, and even finer copper microglitter. 


I'm actually enjoy neutral polishes, so I happen to like this one a lot! Although it is a bit sheer, so I applied it over Essie's Sand Tropez. I applied two thin coats of Sand Tropez, and then applied one good coat of Boouk! on top. I topped it off with a layer of topcoat, and voila! 


I didn't have to manipulate the glitter in any way, and just applying it like normal polish covered very well. I could have done another coat to make it more dense, but I'm happy with how it turned out. The shimmer from the base is a little lost, even though I applied it over a creme, but perhaps more coats would have made it more obvious.


Still, it's a gorgeous polish, and I love the copper! I was actually looking for a copper glitter polish or topcoat too. The images make some of the copper glitter appear black, so it looks orange and black in the photos. Perfect for Halloween, although both shades of copper glitter are definitely copper-y in person!


Bonus: I've also been using Sunny's Cuticle Oil, also from 365 Days of Color, for a long time. I had gotten tons of her miracle balms, but she started producing cuticle oils too. I use these when I'm done with just about every manicure, so I had to give them a shoutout! 


I bought the full size cuticle oils, so here it is in my hand for a sense of scale. They're pretty big, and I haven't even put a dent in it yet! The Candy Corn scent also smells fantastic. It's like the syrup-y sweet scent of candy corn, but it also smells like cinnamon to me! Even if Candy Corn isn't your forte, she has literally tons of scents to choose from!
