OPI Halloween Collection 2012 So So Skullicious Mini Set

I lucky enough to get this set early from the lovely Megan on a polish group on Facebook. Thank you so much Megan!! So once again I got suckered in my the cute packaging and had to have this for that fact. :P
The colors included are Hi, Pumpkin!, A-Rose From the Dead, Mourning Glory and Candlelight. Also included are 10 nail decals and instructions.
Candlelight is a creme/jelly formula that is an egg yolk yellow color. Mourning Glory is a simple black creme, nothing special about this. :( A-Rose From the Dead is a bright pink creme. Hi, Pumpkin is a brighter pumpkin orange, I would have like to see this a darker more true life "pumpkiny" shade.
All fingers, except my middle finger, are 3 coats of each color. My middle finger is only 2 coats of Mourning Glory. All are over a base coat of OPI Nail Envy and under a top coat of Seche Vite.
I'm a little disappointed with the colors. I would have liked to see something glow in the dark and maybe a darker orange for the pumpkin color. The yellow is interesting though, it reminds me a lot of egg yolk and I don't have anything like it.
This was my first time using decals like this, so my application isn't perfect sorry!
These were really easy to apply but, I wish my positioning for them would have been better. I did not apply a top coat after applying these like suggested though.
So even though the colors were a bit of a let down for me, except for the yellow, I am overall happy with this set. I like the decals and will save the others once Halloween nears. 

Edit to add: I have read that most of these colors are dupes for current OPI colors. Hi, Pumpkin!=In My Back Pocket, A-Rose From the Dead=That's Hot Pink, Mourning Glory=Black Onyx and Candlelight=Need Sunglasses. I own none of these colors by OPI so I can't say if this 100% accurate or not.

OPI So So Skullicious Mini Set should be popping up at retailers that carry OPI products soon! It will most likely retail for $12.50, as most mini sets do. You can like OPI on Facebook here.
