Halloween is the perfect time to try out dark, ugly nail polish colors that might not be approachable other times of the year. Note when I say “ugly” colors, that’s not always a bad thing- at least not to me! I don’t always feel pink and shimmery. Icky butterscotch shades, murky browns, and hideous yellows all have their places in my stash. Sometimes I feel like wearing an unappealling, skin-tone clashing shade. Variety is the spice of life, right? ;)
Here’s a shade that has a lot of ugly potential: Conglomerate by Spa Ritual. Spa Ritual can be hard to locate, but it’s vegan and cruelty-free and definitely worth searching out.
Conglomerate is a warmish murky gray with coppery gold shimmer and various sizes of black and silver glitter. Shake this one up A LOT before you apply. Here it is shown in several different lights. This is two solid coats and a coat of Seche Vite.
The formula is pretty smooth, but it does take 2-3 solid coats to achieve bottle color. It’s a unique color to be sure. It doesn’t work with my skin tone well, but it’s a good Halloweeny type shade. However, it’s just not something I would use a whole bottle of…so I franken-mixed it with some other colors to make a whole slew of Ugly Colors-I’ll be showing the results in a couple days in an upcoming post! (And they are ooo-goo-llly, so stay tuned!)
