Cadillacquer Game Over
I'm a sucker for anything that's 2 things at once, especially when one of those things is green, so Game Over from Cadillacquer's 2014 Halloween collection was an easy must-have.
Game Over is a creamy, rich brown, sprinkled with a jade green shimmer and a lightly sparkly holo. It's the sort of holo particle that lines up to an arc of rainbow flame, yet is far more delicate than most of the in-your-face things you'd actually call "linear" holos.
The pale green shimmer translates as both a silvery dusting in the shade, and as a bold flash in bright light.
Though the bottle looks distinctly mahogany brown (i.e., with a decided reddish cast to it - both bottle pics are accurate to what it looks like), on the nail it was a medium brown without any warm tones. In shady light, it looked a bit too...um...organic for my tastes. In bright light, though, that green flash made everything just lovely.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. The brush was a messy mop, but the formula was very forgiving and about a coat-and-a-half to opacity. It's worn great, without any edgewear or chips at all in 2 days.

Where to buy: Cadillacquer is stocked at Llarowe, but no idea if last year's Halloween colors are still in the works to be restocked. Blog sales may be your best bet.
