The Best of Halloween 2009: Nail Polish Exclusives
Happy Halloween, Ghost and Goblins! Are you guys ready for the big H tonight? Yesterday we celebrated with some friends at our house, and this evening I'm ready for some good ole Rest and Relaxation.
To ring in this ghoulish holiday, I'm bringing you some limited edition and/or exclusive nail colors that are floating around your local drugstore.
Let's start off with my favorite from the bunch, China Glaze. Check out all the Hallo-Spam below!
Spellbound Top Coat is a sparkly orange and silver glitter with small and medium round glitter. Even though this is meant for a topper, you can wear alone or over your favorite nail color. Personally I love this layered over any silver foil (pictured above).
Fortune Teller is a Sally Beauty exclusive that's nothing but fabulous. An opaque black loaded with orange round and hexagon shaped glitter.
Next we have some colors from Phantom Frights aka Blue Cross Beauty. You can find these at Rite Aid or Meijer stores in the Halloween section.
Black is a black creme.
Black Glitter is a black with silver glitter.
Black Glitter is a black with silver glitter mattified with China Glaze Matte Magic.
Green is a Neon Green.
Orange is a Neon Orange.
Pink is a Pink Neon.
Black Holographic is a smokey black with holographic glitter.
Teal is a blue green neon. Application and formula was streaky.
Confetti is a orange and black confetti glitter.
Besides Spellbound and Fortune Teller, Toxic is one my favorite Halloween exclusives this year. It's a gorgeous shimmery green. I've only seen Claw Polishes available at Meijer and Kroger's in my area.
Bloodshed is a red creme.
VooDoo is an exclusive from last year, a red glittery top coat.
Sinister is a black creme.
Walmart Green (no official name or brand) is a mini size blue green creme that's well worth a buck at Walmart.
Walmart Orange is another mini size exclusive from Walmart. Application and formula was finicky.
Black Magic is a Wet n Wild exclusive that's been around for a few years. A multi-colored, confetti glitter in a clear base. Great for layering.
Magical is a red, gold and silver glitter in a clear base. Another good one for layering.
Harvest Party is a multi-colored glitter franken I created using clear nail polish and Martha Stewart's Glitter.
And last but not least, my orange and black tiger striped mani. Originally, this was my Cincinnati Bengal's manicure a few weeks ago, but it's very Halloween-ish - Don't cha think?
Do you guys have any Halloween plans? Hope you have a wonderful night, be safe!

i love that walmart green! i\'m really into unusual cremes, so it\'s right up my alley. as for the more typically halloween-y polishes, i adore fortune teller (wearing it right now, in fact, over illamasqua boosh) and i can\'t wait to get my hands on spellbound! i wish transdesign had it up for sale!

So many gorgeous polishes - I may pop! I took a gaggle of children trick or treating for Halloween. Halloween has only become popular within the last few years here in New Zealand. I get such a kick out of it because it's the one time of the year I can wear fairy wings and get away with it!

I love the color of the Walmart green. I picked it up after I first saw your swatch. Unfortunately it stained my nails.
