Happy Halloween to you all!
Halloween is tomorrow, and I just had to post this glittery autumnal orange!
My local Shoppers Drug Mart was clearancing some Quo by Orly polishes, and although some of the shades available were kind of dried out (really, Shoppers?), I managed to rescue two polishes that were in good shape. I guess I’ll see in a few months whether these also dry out…
Ravishing Maze (59415) is a rich, pumpkin orange packed with amber microglitter. This stuff is really glittery, even in dim light!
The name is pretty weird, though. I don’t get what they’re referencing…maybe a play on maize? But why spell it as maze, then? And what’s so ravishing about it? Someone please enlighten me!
Application was easy and two coats gave great coverage. My only complaint is that my particular bottle had a wonkily-cut brush, which did make application a bit trickier. Presumably I just happened to get a lemon.
I suspect this shade is being discontinued since it was being clearanced, and I don’t see it on the Shoppers Drug Mart site. However, if you do happen to see it around and you love oranges, this is a really nice one to get, particularly for Halloween!
Quo by Orly Nail Polish is 0.48 fl oz / 14 mL and retails for CA$11. It is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and it is made in the USA.
Quo Cosmetics is a Shoppers Drug Mart private label brand that offers a variety of beauty products, ranging from foundation and eyeshadow to nail polish and makeup brushes. The product lineup has changed over the years, but their current nail polish is manufactured by Orly. Quo was launched by SDM in 1991. Shoppers Drug Mart is based in Toronto, ON, Canada.
I’ll finish off today’s post with some horror movies. Basically, I love the idea of watching horror movies, but I will let my imagination run away with me, so if a movie is too creepy (particularly the imagery), I won’t be able to sleep! (For a while after watching The Ring, I couldn’t walk past a television without my heart skipping a beat.) Gore is not too big a deal, but psychological—and, oddly, supernatural—horror can really get to me.
So here are my current favorite 20 Horror Movies for Wimps.
- Alien (1979)
- The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
- The Descent (2005)
- Drag Me to Hell (2009)
- The Faculty (1998)
- Fallen (1998)
- Final Destination (2000)
- Ghostbusters (1984)
- The Host (2006)
- Let the Right One In (2008)
- Orphan (2009)
- Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)
- Pitch Black (2000)
- Ravenous (1999)

The Sixth Sense and The Nightmare Before Christmas were good shouts, too, but I decided that pretty much everyone and their dog has already seen The Sixth Sense and I associate Nightmare more with Christmas.
Are there any others you’d recommend for me? You know…horror-themed, but not as terrifying as The Exorcist and The Grudge, nor revolting as Event Horizon and Silent Hill. What are your favorite Halloween movies? 🎃
