PhotoGrid_1582009520776_1582010187624

It feels like I blinked and we are already in September. But there are so many good things coming (many in this post), so I can forgive and forget the craziness. One of the things I’ve been looking forward to the most is this month’s Little Box of Horrors. The theme is All Things Halloween and there are so many spooky, scary, and perfect products coming this month (including the debut of my new brand – Dark Skull Designs)!

I have 38 products to share with you today and as if that not enough, I will also be holding my first blog giveaway for a coupon code for $15 off your September Little Box of Horrors order. Cheyenne of CDB Nails and Beauty and Lisa of Cosmetic Sanctuary will also be holding giveaways for $15 off coupon codes. I’ll add links to their blogs below (as they post them), so you can get three opportunities to win*!

Little Box of Horrors will be open from September 18th to September 30th for the All Things Halloween products. The site is currently open for wishlisting, so you can start with a little “window shopping” to prep for the store opening on Saturday. You can browse and shop here!

Let’s take a look at the products and then we’ll get to the giveaway!

All swatches done using Vapid Lacquer – Commitment Issues Peel Off Base Coat and Get Your Shine On glossy top coat. Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite.

* Giveaway open to US and Canada.

Tombstone Swatch Rings

20210823095009_IMG_5109_1631346300251-01

Description: Turn your nail polish collection into a graveyard with these swatch rings. They are the perfect way to swatch your polishes and show off your collection! Each pack comes with two hand-assembled white rings of each of the five designs.

The designs include a cross tombstone, a skull tombstone, a pentagram tombstone, a tombstone with the alchemy symbol of death, and the classic RIP tombstone every Halloween fan knows and loves.

The rings fit most standard size bottles such as Color Club, Holo Taco, ILNP, LynBDesigns, etc. However, they can be expanded or shrunken to fit bottles such as those of OPI or Enchanted Polish. Just use careful application of heat from a blow dryer or other controllable heat source on the ring prongs and mold it to the shape of the brush cap. PLA can become soft if left under direct sunlight for long periods of time, so you do not need much heat to mold your rings. Please exercise extreme caution while using heat.

Swatcher Note – a few of the LBOH’s swatchers found small chunks of  undissolved pigment in their swatcher bottles. This did not appear to effect all of the swatcher bottles. Lynae will be making a new batch for any bottles that are sold during the September sale in order to avoid any further issues.

My all time favorite holiday is Halloween and it has always been my goal to one day turn my garage into a haunted house for trick or treaters. Three year ago, I finally made it happen! My family and I made an awesome (in my opinion) haunted house using animatronic, strobe lights, fog machines, cooked pasta, and fake bloody. It’s one of my best halloween memories!

  1. Such a great variety of items this month! It’s going to be hard to choose.

    My favorite spooky holiday memories are with my partner. Every year for Halloween they cook a wonderful meal and we watch Over the Garden Wall in a pile of blankets. It isn’t very daring but it makes me feel safe and loved.

  4. The most creepy joke I made a few years ago. I didn’t sleep all night and put on zombie makeup, put on old torn clothes and hid in the refrigerator in the morning (I’m thin – I can fit anywhere). Of course, before that I turned it off and got everything out of there. I calculated just in time for the rise of the parents. My father opened the refrigerator door and I jumped out. He yelled so hard that he slammed the door back, right in my face! (😁😂). But it was worth it!

  6. My fave Halloween memory is when I was a tiny tot, after trick or treating my mom would check my candy for sharp objects while I watched Halloween part 2. Then the scene where the little boy is going into the hospital with his mom because he took a bite of an apple and a razor blade was stuck in it, in which was then in his mouth…. After that I never went house to house again!

  10. Hello! This is my first time checking out Little Box of Horrors and I am excited. Fall is my favorite season!

My mom handmade all our costumes and my favorite to this day was She-Ra! Princess of Power!

  11. My favorite Halloween memory is probably going through a haunted house like the one you created! Growing up I lived in a neighborhood that really went all out for Halloween and there were a ton of kids and several haunted houses set up in peoples garages. Second closest was going trick or treating a few years later with my sister and her husband and some of his nephews. I was a bit older and it was a bit quieter but my brother-in-law (big age difference between my sisters and I) made it memorable.

  15. My favorite Halloween memory would probably be when I was younger. I went out trick or treating with my best friends in these stupid shoes and we went up a really dark walkway.

  17. I love your garage haunted house idea! It’s a dream of mine as well!

My sisters & I had so much fun wading through snow drifts & raking in TONS of candy!!

  18. My favorite Halloween memory would be the year I dressed up as a princess/angel/spy (yes, this was all in one costume). I was going through a phase of loving spies, but my grandmother really wanted me to let her make me a princess costume, and my mom wanted me to be an angel, so I decided I would do all three at once. I had little plastic knives strapped to the skirt of the dress, a halo attached to a crown, and some magnifying glasses in my sleeves. No one could see the parts of my costume that made me a spy, so I was perfectly disguised 😎

  19. Lots of lovely Halloween memories. But a more recent one where I went to a concert in a homemade squirrel costume (I rehab squirrels for a wildlife rescue) and everyone kept asking me if I was Totoro lol. By the end of the night I had stripped my ears, tail and “fur” , because in hindsight, going to a hot club to dance to one of your favorite bands, clothed in fur, probably wasn’t the smartest idea 😂

My favorite memory is when one adult came up to the door, and put his hands on the glass trying to scare us.

  29. Awesome swatches as always! My favourite Halloween memory isn’t just one particular year, it’s pretty much my entire childhood! I grew up in a small community in Nova Scotia, Canada, where pretty much everyone knows everyone, and lots of relatives live nearby. Every year we would start trick-or-treating on our street, going next door to my Aunt/Uncle’s, then next door to them to my Grandparent’s house, then work our way up the street before one of my parent’s would drive us further to the other streets. Very often when you knock on a door and the person lets you in, they would always ask the same questions, ‘Who’s your father, who’s your mother?’ As if they might not give you treats if they don’t know whose kid you are 🤣 I never thought this was an odd question to ask at the time because it was so common I thought it was normal. But the older I get the more I laugh and cherish those moments! That and shout out to what we dubbed ‘Rich Man’s Lane’ because that’s where the bigger houses owned by teachers and doctors were and they always gave out full size candy bars and the cool treats, lol! 🎃 Happy Halloween! 🎃

I have family friends who live there and every year when I was a kid, we would go over and hit every house and then spend the rest of the night trading candy with our friends on their living room floor. I’ve also heard from my parents that a relatively well-known author lives in the neighborhood and hands out drinks for the adults. I’m waiting for Miss. Rona to clear on out to give that part a try

I was a very easily impressed seven-year-old I guess 😅

  36. My favorite Halloween memory is simply the smell of old pillowcases, since that’s what we used for trick or treating. Our fingers were numb from the cold struggling to hang on to the enormous weight of the candy through awkward fitting gloves, and you could never tell what the costume was supposed to be because mom would make us wear coats. But it was worth it.

I’d spotted them the previous year and couldn’t afford it at the time so it felt very good to be able to get one at last. My spider family has grown ever since.

Kojak-style;-p
    No one would be old enough to get that reference, but I love me a detective from any era 😀
