Halloween pretties are often my favorites. Perhaps because it is my favorite holiday? Another reason is likely that I end up finding black glitter which used to be hard to find (not so much anymore!) & I love mysterious type shades. When I was choosing shades from the China Glaze Halloween collection I ended up with three shades: Fang-tastic, Boo-gie Down, & Howl You Doin’. Keep reading to see what I think!
I used an even topper of Out the Door for the swatches below. 2/3 are over a base & those shades will be reviewed soon! All of these shades are limited edition & I’m a bit behind in posting these so if you do like a shade try to snap it up locally or buy online like I do 😉
China Glaze Fang-tastic- A mix of blue, fuchsia, blurple, & green hex glitters in a clear base.One coat over Sinful Colors Laced Up. This doesn’t look Halloween-esque to me but I still really like it. This is something I honestly would’ve thought was from a spring collection even but application/glitter payoff were pretty Fang-tastic (see what I did there?) so I shall let it pass.
China Glaze Boo-gie Down- Black, white, & copper glitter in varying sizes in a clear base. This has some awesome varying sizes of hexes from micro to medium/large & even some black bare glitter. This applied really nicely which was a big relief since the last white glitter I bought from China Glaze was Whirled Away…& it was a total mess (read about that fiasco here but my swatches have really changed!). I think this is my favorite polish of the three because it just looks so fall-tastic. One coat over Sinful Colors Strapped.
China Glaze Howl You Doin’- This is a red based purple jelly-ish base packed with purple small glitter & orange-ish shard flakes. It was really kind of balding on the first coat but the second coat evened it out. I had a heck of a time with cleanup on this on for some reason!
I’m really happy I picked up all three of these shades & can actually see myself using all 3 repeatedly which is key when you accumulate a stash like mine at the moment. Boo-gie Down is my favorite of the 3 I think but I am both a black & white polish & copper anything sucker so that could totally be why!
Have you picked up any of these shades? What are some of your favorite Halloween shades?
