The Best of Halloween 2009: Nail Polish Exclusives

Happy Halloween

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! 

China Glaze Spellbound Nail Polish

China Glaze Spellbound Nail Polish over Silver

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).

China Glaze Fortune Teller Nail Polish

Fortune Teller is a Sally Beauty exclusive that's nothing but fabulous. An opaque black loaded with orange round and hexagon shaped glitter.

Phantom Frights Mini Nail Polish Set

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 Nail Polish

Black is a black creme. 

Black with Silver Glitter Nail Polish

Black Glitter is a black with silver glitter. 

Black with Silver Glitter Mattified

Black Glitter is a black with silver glitter mattified with China Glaze Matte Magic. 

Neon Green Nail Polish

Green is a Neon Green. 

Neon Orange Nail Polish

Orange is a Neon Orange. 

Neon Pink Nail Polish

Pink is a Pink Neon.

Pumpkin Enamel Black Holographic Nail Polish

Black Holographic is a smokey black with holographic glitter.

Phantom Frights Teal Neon Nail Polish

Teal is a blue green neon. Application and formula was streaky.

Phantom Frights Black and Orange Confetti

Confetti is a orange and black confetti glitter.

Fright Night Claw Toxic Nail Polish

Fright Night Toxic Nail Polish

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.

Fright Night Bloodshed Nail Polish

Bloodshed is a red creme. 

Fright Night VooDoo Nail Polish

VooDoo is an exclusive from last year, a red glittery top coat.  

Fright Night Sinister Nail Polish

Sinister is a black creme. 

Walmart Green Nail Polish

Walmart Green (no official name or brand) is a mini size blue green creme that's well worth a buck at Walmart. 

Walmart Orange Nail Polish

Walmart Orange is another mini size exclusive from Walmart. Application and formula was finicky.

Wet n Wild Black Magic Nail Polish

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. 

Wet n Wild Magical Nail Polish

 Magical is a red, gold and silver glitter in a clear base. Another good one for layering.

Harvest Party Nail Polish Franken

Harvest Party is a multi-colored glitter franken I created using clear nail polish and Martha Stewart's Glitter.

Cincinnati Bengals Tiger Striped Mani

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?

For more Halloween coverage, check out Milani's Black Magic, Color Club's Master of Disguise, MAC's Style Black, and/or Icing's Black Glitter set. .

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.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

Shelly said, on Aug 19th, 2012 3:43 pm regarding Product Review: Red Carpet Manicure Pro Kit
I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Steph said, on Jul 3rd, 2012 4:14 pm regarding Wet n Wild Flash Dry Nail Colors
Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
