OPI Rock Goddess Halloween mini set

Hi everyone, happy Tuesday.  I am very much enjoying the fall weather, how about you?  Today I have the Halloween mini polish set from OPI.  I was sick of waiting for my local Ulta to get this set because they usually are weeks or months behind with bringing out new polish collections so I got it from Amazon.  This set doesn't have the most original colors to those that have huge polish collections, but they were original colors for me.

Rolling Bones:
This polish is a grey shimmer that is medium toned and to me has golden shimmer.  It is similar to On Her Majesty's Secret Service, which I picked up recently but haven't swatched on here yet, but this polish leans more warm and grey whereas OHMSS leans more blue and cool.  The formula was a little sheer and required three coats for full coverage.

Stand In Lime For Days:
This polish is a bright lime chartreuse green that doesn't feel very Halloween to me, but could lean Halloween if paired with orange and purple.  I used three coats for full coverage.

This polish is a marigold yellow cream.  It was pretty good for a yellow but did need three coats to even out everything.

The Drummer is Hot:
This polish is a red-orange cream.  I normally wouldn't go for a polish like this but this one really seemed to go well with my skin tone.  The formula was really good on this one, two coats for full opacity.

Overall I liked this collection.  It didn't blow me away but I liked each of the colors because they were unique to anything I have.  The set also comes with a skull bracelet which I haven't tried yet.  As a little extra, I included a mani I used with all of these polishes for a guest post a few days ago.  I used Candy Lacquer Zombielicious on my accent nail and the little dots with Essie The Girls Are Out.


  1. I like the four colors! Not very unique as you say, but still very fun and bright! I love the final mani with all the colors... it's really cute. :)

  2. Love your nail art!
    Rolling bones reminds me of a color from the spiderman collection!

  3. Besides Rolling Bones, the polishes look like dupes of the NOPI Tink set that was exclusive to Walgreens this summer.

  4. I *love* the mani you did with all of these together. ♥

  5. I passed on this years OPI mini halloween set :( I didn't love enough colors to justify buying it....and it hurts to see this gorgeous swatch of Rolling Bones cause I'm a sucker for gunmetal and greys!

  6. I love this set. Haven't done anything yet with it. But I will! Loving your swatches - the colours are shown so well! x
