R. Hobby Cosmetics Creepy Crawler + The Haul - Swatches + Review Pt. 1

Afternoon loves! I've got another great post for you today with some pretties from the lovely Rachel at R. Hobby Cosmetics - a great Indie brand. I split this post up into two parts because it was getting super pic heavy but these are just so gorgeous I couldn't help myself. 

Today I've got Creepy Crawler and The Haul, both from her Halloween line but are gorgeous enough to be worn year round. Before we jump in, the base I used for these is two coats of Milani Just Grayt, my absolute favorite grey & a perfect base for just about anything.

First up we've got Creepy Crawler, an gorgeous mix of purple, black and white glitters ranging from hexes, microglitters and bars in a clear base! Normally I don't like polishes with bars as I can never get them to lay flat, but I had no problems with application with this. I used two coats for the photos below.

There was NO shortage of glitter for this Creepy Crawler! I got a nice, even coat on my first run and could've gone without a second even.

Next up, The Haul - every little girls DREAM polish based on their huge Haul from trick-or-treating. I am absolutely in love with the mix of glitters in this. 

Orange, purple, yellow and black glitters are jam packed into The Haul in so many different varieties! It's hard not to find something to love about this polish. I used two, flawless coats for these photos.

Wow just look at all of those glitters! Talk about not your average glitterbomb!

Overall, these polishes are a dream. Usually with glitterbombs like this you have to use the dab technique but there was none of that with these polishes. Rachel truly has a knack for making gorgeous glitter combos you normally wouldn't think of!

You can find these and more at Rachel's R. Hobby Cosmetics Etsy store for $8.00 for a full size. Also, be sure to 'Like' her Facebook page Stay tuned for Part 2 of my swatches tomorrow!
