Piggy Polish Lightmare

Happy Halloween everyone! I am totally lame, and I don't really get into Halloween. I don't dislike Halloween, nor do I have anything against it. I think I'm just neutral to it. I enjoyed it more as a kid. Remember the lady, Goldie, I mentioned who had amazing 4th of July parties when I was a kid? Well, Goldie had amazing Halloween parties too. She decked her house out for Halloween like no other. She had amazing candy and toys for all the kids. She played Hocus Pocus on her big screen TV. She still has Halloween parties, but I no longer live in Dallas, so I miss out. My parents still go to her Halloween parties. I am extremely jealous, therefore, without Goldie's amazing parties, Halloween is just not worth it anymore.

Anyways, I do still celebrate Halloween on my nails! This is Halloween polish by Piggy Polish.

Piggy Polish Lightmare over Milani Black Swift


Lightmare is a dense mixture of charcoal gray micro glitter and small-medium orange hex glitters.

This a glitter bomb, and it's super sparkly. It was so sparkly, my camera had a difficult time capturing it. You could actually wear this on it's own in 2-3 coats, but I think the black base gives it a bit of an extra oomph.

Now that we got the good part out of the way..let's move on the the bad. The formula on this is frightening. It is a nightmare. The formula on this has the consistency of molasses. It is ridiculously thick. The brush on this polish expands twice its size when its dipped into the polish because it is just so dang thick. I added thinner to it, and it still was insanely thick. It also dries matte and gritty. It needs top coat. I really like this color though. It's unlike any other Halloween polish I've seen, but I'm glad it's Halloween-themed so I don't feel guilty about not using it often!

Happy Halloween!

  1. I love how you got the sparkle in the photos. Annoying that the formula was yucky. It looks cool anyway:)

  3. Great photos! I wore this the other day and love the polish but you're right about the formula. It's terrible.

    I'm the same way about Halloween! It's nice, and I've had fun in the past, just not something I look forward to as excitedly as other people.

    Lovely polish! At first look I thought it was an indie. Too bad about the formula, I'm guessing that one's gonna stay buried in a helmer drawer :P.

  6. I feel the same way about Halloween, except that I don't care for it more than I'm neutral to it, lol.



    I do like Lightmare!

  8. That is a beautiful polish. I only have 1 Piggy Polish and I have the same trouble with it too. It was thick and I had to thin it out to make it easier to work with and my brush did the same thing! Maybe it's just their formula?

  12. I scored this today on Ulta's clearance rack. Mine seems quite different to what you described, it has a nice consistency and the base is clear (yet dense with the black & charcoal microglitter). It reminds me of the Milani one-coat glitters, actually. It was a lucky find, I'd never heard of this color before & picked it up because it reminded me of old Streetwears. Plus it was only $2.50!
