Danvers

$10.00

It’s no secret that Halloween is my absolute favorite!! I have a fascination with old, abandoned insane asylums and mental hospitals - specifically mid to late 1800’s and very early 1900’s. I decided to incorporate that fascination into this LE Halloween collection. I picked 4 of the most haunted locations in the US. I included the history behind each one! Enjoy reading!

Danvers

Full size - 0.5 oz

THIS IS A THERMAL POLISH! It's a coral-orange that changes to a soft white-ish coral with shimmer and micro flakes.
Please note, thermals have an average life span of 6 months. Some way longer (years!) and some shorter. Extreme heat affects them and they will “freeze” in their “warm” state. This is out of my control and there will be NO refunds for thermals that stop working. Upon purchasing, you agree to this

{DANVERS STATE LUNATIC ASYLUM, MASSACHUSETTS}

Often referred to today as “the Witches’ Castle on the Hill”, Danvers State Lunatic Asylum was built in 1878 on a site which was originally in Salem Village – the first actual location of the Salem witch trials in 1962. When it started out, Danvers was renowned for its modern treatments and superb patient care, but it wasn’t long before the asylum fell victim to lack of funding, overstaffing and over-population which caused it to deteriorate into something more akin to a concentration camp.

Between 1940 and 1950, the facility housed more than 2,000 patients in a building which was designed to house 600. Patients became haggard and ghostly, often left in complete isolation for days on end. Things were so bad that dead patients would go unnoticed for days, if not weeks. In 1992, Danvers State Lunatic Asylum was closed down, demolished and renovated into the set of apartments it is today.

Despite the asylum being torn down and reconstructed as a different property, bizarre activity and paranormal sightings still abound. Residents and visitors have recorded full body apparitions, flickering lights, the sound of unexplained footsteps and doors opening and closing on their own.

PSA: Polish 'M polish is made in small batches by human hands. Not machines. I try my very best to duplicate each batch but slight variations CAN occur. I am at the mercy of my suppliers and if materials change on their end, it's nearly impossible to get the same exact match from batch to batch.
