Created by a former fashion industry colorist and Earth-loving beauty addict, Aja Frierson, Habit Cosmetics, is a 5-free Vegan Nail polish that is uniquely made with Myrrh extracts. Myrrh has been used for centuries for it’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
The first shade that caught my eye was Creature Of The Night, a blushing deep purple with an electric blue shimmer.
The look of the bottle caught my eye as well. I’ve always been a lover of bamboo and bamboo packaging so I absolutely love the choice of Habit Cosmetics choosing to use a bamboo overcap on the polish. Not only because it’s chic and well fitted over the glass bottle, but it means less plastic is used in the finished product.

Pigmentation | The pigmentation of the Habit Cosmetics Creature Of The Night is very saturated and rich. I thought the shimmer would be overpowering but once applied it provided a smooth fluid coverage.

Overview | Creature Of The Night is a very unique, daring shade. Absent of directly light it appears to be satin grape but when light hits the shade you see a beautiful spectrum of magenta, purple and royal blue topped with iridescent shimmer. It has definitely become one of my favorite shades of purple, the first being PRINCE himself 🙂
