For those of you following the Hebridean Sprite Beauty shop on facebook you probably know I've been working on this Vampire inspired shade for a while now- about a month. First it was too dark, then too light then too opaque, then the subtle shimmer wouldn't show up on the nail, then it dried too matte. Finally I managed to get a shade that I'm happy with though I still need a topcoat for it in order to reach it's full potential I think.
Anyways it's a dark bloody red jelly shade with a subtle regal purple shimmer that is only evident in some lights. Shown is with three coats and I'm loving it, especially for Halloween. I'm actually posting it today in the shop and it will be a part of the permanent mythological line if anyone is interested. I wanted to post it earlier but as you can tell from earlier I just wasn't happy with it yet.
Strangely but kind of ironically in the bottle Royal Vampire looks like bottled half-dried blood as it has a weird brown tone to it. None of that tone really shows up on the nail though and the shimmer is much more prominent in the bottle. I have no clue as to why this is but I thought I'd mention it.

Hope everyone has a lovely candy-filled Halloween this evening! Stay safe and have a blast!
