Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Pumpkin Spice & Vlog 12: Haul!

Hey y'all! I've got lots to share today. First, I know a lot of people wanted to see Pumpkin Spice so I've swatched that for y'all. I did three coats and my pinky has four coats just so y'all can see how it builds up. I was a little disappointed to see that it's a pretty sheer polish on it's own. The base isn't as black as I thought it was going to be. It's more of a grey/black, or charcoal with orange glitter. Take a look.

Even though it does look a little sheer with three coats, it's still a unique polish, at least in my collection. It has that "glowy" look to it, too, which I think works really well for fall and especially around Halloween. I do like the look of it at four coats (pinky). But I know most of y'all aren't fans of a fourth coat. I can't say I blame y'all, because I really don't like it either. I think what made this polish so sheer was how thin the formula is. But let me just set the record straight. I do like this polish. Below, I've layered two coats over one coat of Xtreme Wear Black Out. I LOVE the outcome of this layering experiment, so take a look!

That's how I wanted Pumpkin Spice to look on its own. But I'm perfectly content layering it over black to get this effect. I really like it. What do y'all think? Have any of y'all tried this polish alone or over a black polish? What is your take on it? Please let me know! I'm curious to find out what y'all think!

And here's my 12th vlog!
I'm accepting "birthday polish" ideas, so leave them below! Let me know if you've tried anything I showed in the vlog, I'm always interested in what other people have to say on certain products!
I also mentioned Emily's blog, Embellished Nails. Please check out her blog! She's such a sweetheart and she has the most gorgeous nails! That's where I read her review of the True Blue Spa 60 Second Manicure Hand Scrub. Definitely check out her blog! :)

Thanks for reading & watching! :)

Reminds me of Halloween! I have this polish but haven't worn it yet. I think I am saving it for October. And it is featured in my giveaway!

I haven't tried my bottle of Pumpkin Spice yet; I don't mind layering so the sheerness won't bother me--it is surprising, though, as you say from looking at the bottle it wouldn't seem it would be.

Hi it's me again! I finally got to watch your vlog. I commented earlier on the pics. Last night, I was trying to catch up on my blog reading while catching up with my mother on the phone. Teach me not to try and multitask. ;p

There is maybe one or two colors of the OPI collection I want. I do like that one you showed, and would love to see it swatched. (can't remember the name but it's the espresso one)

LOVED your expressions about the PB&J hand sanitizer and starting classes on Monday. :D

For your birthday why not do Peridot with a glitter accent nail?

Anyway, I want to wish you a happy birthday! Hope you're having a great day!

I love your vlogs! And I have to agree about the PB&J hand sanitizer..I smelled it the other day in B&BW and it was terrible! Yuck!!
