Fair warning loves, If you plan on purchasing(or have already purchased) the Necessary Evil Thirteen Ghosts Advent Box and don't want to see what is in the box then stop reading now because this posts contains photos of all 14 products in the box!!!

Today I have a haunting Halloween Advent Calendar Box from Necessary Evil to share with you! This box contains 13 polishes and a sheet of water slide decals all inspired by the hit movie Thirteen Ghost! In true advent fashion, each polish/product is numbered on the outside so you know which day to open or you can be me and burst them all open at once haha! Read on for more info!



The Black Zodiac is a dark inversion of the normal Zodiac. Like its celestial counterpart, the more eldritch Black Zodiac is divided into twelve arcane signs; unlike its counterpart, these signs represent twelve earthbound ghosts necessary to gain access to the Ocularis Infernum.

In addition to the twelve standard ghosts, the Black Zodiac also encompasses a thirteenth ghost; the Broken Heart. This spirit is the final ingredient in the spell to fully activate Basileus's Machine due to being sacrificed willingly out of an act of pure love instead of misery.

I REPEAT:
Warning, Descriptions of the characters from this movie can be gory, triggering and hard to read so please ignore the text in small italics if you don't want to read the backstory to each Ghost!!

Ribbits and Stickits-Waterslide Decals

Instructions:
1. Paint nails, let dry completely.
2. Cut out the desired image.(Try cutting as close as possible to the image)
3. Place in warm water for 5-10 seconds.
4. Using your thumb & index finger slide the paper backing from the image.
5. Lightly dampen the back of the decal.
6. Place image on your nail, pressing down to remove any air bubbles.
7. Seal it with a top coat.

Tip:
If you prefer to use the decal over a colored/darker polish it's best to paint the back of the image with white polish/acrylic paint letting it dry before applying it to the nail.

I decided to do an accent nail with each Ghost's Sign that corresponded with the name and inspo of each polish.

Jimmy eventually opened his own booking business, though he was barely able to make his payoffs because of his compulsive gambling and he quickly developed a reputation due to his refusal to turn down a bet.

Jimmy's inability to turn down a bet eventually caught the attention of mobster and "made man" Larry "Finger" Vatelo, who bet heftily on a boxing match. Jimmy agreed, and sealed his fate. When Jimmy's fighter was defeated, he fainted.

When Jimmy awakened, Larry and his gang arrived to collect Larry's winning from Jimmy. But because Jimmy was cleaned out, instead, they cut Jimmy's body up, wrapped the pieces in cellophane and dumped them into the ocean.

The burnt Jean was taken to St. Luke's Hospital, where she died of her burns.

However, fate threw a curve ball when Royce was 17, Johnny, a greaser that challenged him to a drag race, but unbeknownst to Royce, had cut a brake line in his car prior to the event. This, of course, caused Royce to lose control of the car; resulting in an accident which tore a large amount of flesh off of his chest, as well as the right side of his face. This incident quickly ended Royce's life.

One night, while Dana was alone in a clinic where she worked, she tried to perform surgery on herself due to an imaginary imperfection on her face, but the unorthodox procedure went horribly awry, and left her blinded in one eye. She then gave up on beauty, and committed suicide in her bathtub by slashing herself with a butcher's knife until she bled to death.

When the town's livestock began to die mysteriously, shortly after her arrival, Isabella was accused by the local preacher of witchcraft. She denied the claim, but when the preacher fell ill, the town quickly turned against her and cornered her in a barn. They lit the structure on fire, but Isabella emerged, completely unscathed.

Instead of a quick death, Isabella was sentenced to a slow, painful death in the stocks, where kids stoned her, women cursed at her and men spat at her until she eventually died of starvation weeks later.

Because Margaret never stopped spoiling him, Harold not only weighed 136 kilograms by his later years, but somehow retained his child-like mindset his entire life to the point that he never grew out of diapers. Because of this, Harold and Margaret were taunted and teased at every turn.

One day, some circus workers kidnapped Margaret as a cruel joke on Harold. In a rage-fueled search for his mother, Harold ransacked most of the carnival, but when he found her, she had already suffocated in the bag the workers had kept her in. Enraged, Harold killed the circus workers responsible for Margaret's manslaughter with an axe as well as a lot of the other freaks, not knowing they weren't actually responsible, and put their remains on display for paying customers.

When the carnival broker, Jimbo, found out what Harold had done, he ordered an angry mob to confront and horribly execute Harold.

She could never stand up for herself because of her pint size, and was constantly stared at and picked on as a result of it. Seeking acceptance, Margaret joined Jimbo's carnival, but found this life as an attraction for people to goggle at just as horrible.

While Margaret was sweeping up a donkey pen one night, another carnival freak called the Tall Man attacked and raped her, causing her to become pregnant and give birth to her son, Harold. Margaret never stopped spoiling Harold as he grew, causing him to remain in diapers his entire life and retain his infant mindset, but Margaret didn't care.

One day, the circus workers kidnapped Margaret as part of a cruel joke on her and her son and kept her in a sack, where she suffocated.

Enraged, George tracked down Nathan and his friends, and brutally beat them to death with his sledgehammer. When the town discovered what George had done, they dragged him back to his shop where they tied him to a tree and drove railroad spikes into his body with his own sledgehammer, slowly killing him. Then, as a finishing touch, they cut off George's hand, and fixed George's sledgehammer in its place.

The Jackal - the ghost of Ryan Kuhn and the eleventh ghost featured in The Black Zodiac. - Born to a prostitute at some point in the year 1887, Ryan Kuhn grew up to develop a sick, insatiable and uncontrollable taste for women. As a result, he became a wild and cunning, sexual predator, attacking, raping, and murdering strays and prostitutes in the dead of night like a wild animal.

Seeking treatment, Ryan committed himself to Borinwood Asylum, where he eventually went insane. He scratched at his cell's walls so violently, that his fingernails were torn completely off, making his hands claw-like. When Ryan attacked a nurse, the doctors decided to put him in a straitjacket and tightened it whenever Ryan acted out, contorting his limbs horribly. However, Ryan gnawed through it, so the doctors locked Ryan's head in a cage-type helmet and locked him in a dark, basement cell, where he grew to hate any human contact, and would cower and scream madly whenever approached. When a fire broke out at the asylum, while everyone else escaped, Ryan chose to stay behind and meet his deserved fate, and he apparently died in the fire.

The Juggernaut - the ghost of Horace "The Breaker" Mahoney and the twelfth ghost to be featured in The Black Zodiac. - Horace was abandoned by his mother, almost immediately after birth, and was raised by his father. As a child, Horace grew to such a grotesque height and appearance that he was constantly ostracized and spent his childhood as an outcast.

Mr. Mahoney put Horace to work at his junkyard, chopping and crushing up old cars. When Mr. Mahoney died, Horace was left alone and finally, with no one to guide him, went insane as a result. He became a serial killer, picking up hitchhikers and stranded motorists to take back to his junkyard; there, he would rip them apart with his bare hands and feed their remains to his dogs. This preferred method of murder was what earned him the nickname, "The Breaker".

Horace's seventh to-be victim turned out to be an undercover police officer, who had a SWAT team surround the junkyard and arrest Horace. However, Horace was able to break free of his handcuffs and killed three police officers before he was gunned down by five SWAT officers. They then added one final volley of shots into him, "just to be sure" that he was dead.
