Smokey Mountain Lacquers October 2017 Collaboration Polish Swatches and Review

I am really excited to share the Smokey Mountain Lacquers October 2017 Collaboration Polish, especially since it was one I got to create with Kim! This will be a series where folks get to work with her to bring their visions to life. For this month, I specifically wanted to channel trick or treating under a crisp fall sky. I have so many wonderful memories of this as a child growing up in Minnesota. Halloween was my favorite holiday!
