Wet 'n Wild Beautifully Wicked Halloween Collection - Part 2


I was out earlier and decided at the last minute to go back to Walgreens and see if the Wet 'n Wild Beautifully Wicked collection was still out and stocked.  I ended up giving in to my 2nd thoughts/regrets about not picking up a couple of the polishes and now my wallet is $4 smaller.  Oops, oh well.  The polishes are cheaper than the other things I thought about getting today (possibly some Urban Decay, Too Faced or Becca).  It'd be nice if Ulta would send out a prestige coupon really soon.  Anyway...

Back to Walgreens.  The display was still there, and so were the polishes that I had some regrets on not getting the last time.  I re-posted the below picture from the other day that shows the palette that coordinates with the polishes - the Queen of the Nile grouping.
For some reason I've been in a warm color mood lately so maybe that's why these 2 gold polishes called out to me so much.

Swatch time!  These ended up being 1 coat each on the wheel, but my nails needed 2 coats of each, with plenty of dry time between coats of Haute Hieroglyph so the glitters stay put.
Pharoah Fatale and Haute Hieroglyph
undies, 2 coats each: Pharoah Fatale (middle and index), Color Club Positively Posh, SinfulColors Clementine
my index has Pharoah Fatale by itself, 2 coats while the rest of my nails have 1-2 coats of Haute Hieroglyph on top of the above listed "undies"

I found Haute Hieroglyph to be on the thin/runny side and had a hard time getting the larger of the 2 sized hex glitters on my nails.   Pharoah Fatale was nice, but I did feel that 2 coats gave it a more opaque coverage.  Even though it's a metallic/foil, I don't think it would work for stamping like many metallic or foil shades since it does need 2 coats.  It's also a little bit messy with clean up to get all the metallic particles off my skin.

These 2 definitely aren't the most original, but I was feeling like a little (budget) perk-up today so I got them.

Are either of these 2 Beautifully Wicked Halloween polishes something you'd like to add to your polish stash?  Any of the other 4 (shown in the link here)?
