The one with ORLY Mysterious Curse and Grave Mistake!

Happy Monday! I've decided to combine two posts together because these polishes both come from the same collection...and because they were super great, and I couldn't wait to put them up for you guys to see! I'm talking about two of the ORLY Dark Shadows collection - Mysterious Curse and Grave Mistake. I picked them up at Sally's over the weekend. I need to go back and exchange my bottle of Grave Mistake, and you'll see why at the end of the post hehe

Mysterious Curse is a beautiful dark grape-y purple with a solid sheath of blue shimmer running through it. Kind of like a bruise. Kind of like Galaxy Girl. Only more intense. I have noticed it's a dupe of ORLY Royal Velvet, which I do not own. Royal Velvet is currently back in the core line display at Sally's.

And now for my favorite of the two! If you've followed me a while you know my infatuation with vampy reds. I can't get enough of them! Well, Grave Mistake fits right in. It's the juiciest vampy red in my collection, I believe. I'm going to have to take my bottle back to Sally's and get a new one because of a wonky brush...

And a wonky brush?
Yep! It's cemented in there like that. It doesn't move! I was able to paint my nails with it but it was just weird. I'm talking it back to Sally's to get a new bottle. hahah

So what do you think of these polishes? What do you think of the movie? I am kind of disappointed in what they've done to the movie. I used to like the original soap opera version, and what they've made this movie into just doesn't hold true if Depp and Burton say they were actually fans of the original series. I may boycott it alongside horror movie remakes I have refused to see (Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween).

**DISCLAIMER**  I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these polishes myself or were given gifts as friends because I could not find the particular shade I wanted myself.  I am not a professional nail tech, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails :)
