Mckfresh Nail Attire Goosbumps Collection: Swatch & Review

Hello!
Today I have another Mckfresh Nail Attire collection to show you! This spooky collection is inspired by poplar 90's book series, Goosebumps! Goosebumps were hugely popular when I was at primary school but I must admit that I was too much of a scary cat to read them >.< I was more of a Saddle Club girl haha. When Kate contacted me and told me about the new collection, I was super excited because I knew the theme would produce some beautiful, dark shades and she has delivered!


The Goosebumps Collection
Consisting of 6 shades, this collection is mostly made up of rich, blackened colours with lots of interesting shimmers, sparks, and flakies. There's also a lovely glitter topper as well :)

Dead House
A dark navy shimmer with blue and pink sparks. Application was good with 3 easy coats. The pink sparks are much more evident in real life.

Swatches show 3 coats with top coat.






Be Careful What You Wish For
This one is a gorgeous duochrome that shifts from blue to purple and to pink at some angles. It applied smoothly and didn't leave brushstrokes like some chromes tend to do. You can reach opacity on its own with 2-3 coats but I decided to apply it over black to intensify the shift. I used two coats over black but adding the second coat didn't make much of a difference so I would recommend just one coat over black. It also has some subtle blue sparks through it that makes it extra special!

Swatches show 2 coats over black with top coat.






Vampire Breath
A glitter topper with lots of iridescent hex and flakies plus a scattering of holo. One coat is all you need and it gives an even distribution of glitter. This is a really versatile topper as it would look beautful over any colour but the iridescent glitter really pops over darker colours.

Swatches shows 1 coat over a subtle purple>blue>black gradient.





The next 3 shades are the shimmery flakie shades and they all have identical formulas. They all needed 3 easy coats to reach a nice even opacity.

Horrorland
A blackened blue base with blue flakies and shimmer with subtle pink and gold sparks.

Swatches show 3 coats with top coat





Camp Nightmare
A blackened green base with green flakies and shimmer as well as some red and gold sparks that pop in the sun.

Swatches show 3 coats with topcoat.






Haunted Mask
A blackened purple based polish with purple glimmers and flecks, blue sparks, gold shimmer and iridescence.





Swatches show 3 coats with top coat.

I was really pleased with this collection with it's really complex combinations of shimmers, sparks and flakies (I was having trouble identifying them at times!). If you're someone who likes to match their nail polish to the season, this collection is perfect for winter!
