China Glaze - Cast a Spell

If BT can carry on pretending it's still Hallowe'en with their horrendous advert, then so can I with my Hallowe'en collection polish.

This is Cast a Spell from the 2012 Wicked Hallowe'en collection. This is two coats, with Seche Vite topcoat. Cast a Spell is a blackened green base with tiny greeny gold glitter particles.

This has the usual excellent China Glaze formula that applies perfectly, dries to a hard finish and lasts well. It's an interesting colour, and has a lot of depth to it. However, it's just not really doing it for me I'm afraid. I think it's because it's so dark, which is not really what I need at this time of year (I need bright cheerful colours!)


  1. Hahaha! I thought nobody else had noticed those damn BT ads!

  2. That looks a bit like cant-remember-the-name-of-it from the Skyfall OPIs, except yours has more sparkle. The sparkle on whats-it-called seemed to get a bit lost in the green black.

    1. I know the one you mean.

      This one's ok, but it often looks black too, depending on the light.

    2. Live & Let Die, one of the ones I've got. This is a lot sparklier than Live & Let Die, and quite a bit nicer. It's a really pretty colour, but I honestly can't see when to wear it, apart from the few days immediately around Hallowe'en. (That said, I'm wearing the near-dupe from the Strictly set today, but that's browner)

    3. That's the one.

      I quite like this, but maybe not at the moment. Maybe with gold crackle over it or something.


I absolutely love comments! But please don't spam me with links to your sales website here!.

If you have a blog that you'd like me to check out, then I'm more than happy to do so - just drop me an email. Thanks!
