Sinful Colors Halloween at Walgreens - 2 Displays

**all items purchased by me

I thought today would be a good day to do my post for the Sinful Colors displays that I've seen at Walgreens recently.  There was one counter display as well as one large corner display with lots of colors.  Not very much in the way of new colors however - in fact, only 2 actual "new" colors, a couple that have only come out once before, and one that typically comes out around St. Patrick's day...the rest are core colors.
Colors: Inkwell, Courtney Orange (2 rows), Black on Black, Let's Talk, Black Magic (new), Pumpkin Spice (came out last year), and either Inkwell or Black on Black.  A bottle of Let's Meet was also tucked in so I'm not sure if this display is correctly arranged or not.

P.S. Sinful Colors Pumpkin Spice is pretty much a dupe of China Glaze Electrify from the Hunger Games collection.

And one side of the large corner display.
Colors included in this one: Glow in the Dark (new; first polish on top row), Irish Green, Black on Black, Courtney Orange, Pumpkin Spice, Black Magic, Faceted, Let's Talk, Sugar Sugar, Call You Later, Snow Me White.  On the diagonal corner side, there are striper bottles.  Also, on the side I pictured the top row is 3 designs of nail strips:
"Boo", "Trick or Treat" and "Webs"

Now, did I purchase any?  mmmm....maybe.  Say "hi" to Black Magic:
So pretty!

And I really wanted to get swatches of this up in case you come across it and aren't sure.
Index and middle fingers are 2 coats
Ring finger is one coat
Pinkie finger is 3-4 coats

I would describe Black Magic as a clear base that is completely loaded with silver and charcoal "dust" and also has a good amount of shiny orange hex glitters.  This does dry with some texture, mainly because of being so packed with glitters.  My ring finger dried pretty quickly, with my pinkie being much slower - only because I quickly built it up.  I'd say that if you wanted to layer it over a colored base, as long as you keep your coat super thin, it might work.  To make this easier to take off, I'd suggest layering it over a dark gray or black to keep it looking as close to the bottle.

Are you planning on getting any of the polishes from these displays?  Do you like glow in the dark polishes or not so much?
