Trans-Allegheny

$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!

Trans-Allegheny - Full size 0.5 oz

THIS POLISH IS A THERMAL! It's a purple that changes to a soft white-ish lavender with shimmer and iridescent 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.

Swatches are courtesy of @bruisedupdollie and @ohlerin.

{TRANS-ALLEGHENY LUNATIC ASYLUM, WEST VIRGINIA}

Constructed between 1858 and 1881, the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is the second largest in the world, originally designed to house up to 250 patients before it reached its peak in the 1950s, when more than 2,400 people were crammed into the facility. As the result of bizarre experimental treatments and severe neglect, thousands of people died here over the years. The physical deterioration of the building coupled with changes in the treatment of mental illness resulted in the closure of the asylum in 1994.

The reasons for being committed to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum were almost never-ending and included trivial things, such as falling from a horse or laziness to ridiculous matters, such as “imaginary female trouble” or desertion by husband up to serious cases, including murders and PSTD. This broad spectrum resulted in all sorts of mismatched patients being cooped up together, all with disastrous consequences.

Two decades since the asylum closed, the staff who works there claim that ghosts continue to roam the halls. The manager states that she once saw 40 doors suddenly slam shut simultaneously, whilst other visitors have witnessed a ghost boy stood in the corner of a room. As well as sightings, whispers of forgotten patients have also been reported, on top of unusual smells, the sound of squeaking gurneys and screams coming from the electro-shock room.

Please note: The color and density of the polishes in the photos may vary due to lighting and/or your screen monitor resolution.

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.

5-Free and Cruelty-Free nail polish.
Handmade in the USA.
NEVER TESTED ON ANIMALS.
