The last couple of weeks have been occupied by the moving of my entire office/craft room, including "Polish World" (as I've started calling it). It took longer than I anticipated, especially when it came down to taking care of the last bits and pieces. I've also thrown in some purging of closet items and just things I no longer wanted. Oh, and lots of organizing...lots. We've also got a major event for the Mister that we've been working on the planning of for the last few weeks.
So I thought that considering today is Halloween, and I've got free time - we didn't do the Halloween bash like we did last year (again, too much going on) - I thought I'd go through Polish World and pull out all (or at least most) of the Halloween polishes/collections I have and post them all in one spot. I did not pull out my mini-sized Fantasy Makers polishes (ones that came in kits - that shows part of them) and I might have missed a few here and there, but this is the bulk of my Halloween polish collection. So let's get started! Also, I've linked to as many posts as possible featuring swatches/manis of the various polishes, whether they be on the nail wheel or on my actual nails.
First up, the famous "tombstone" polishes from Fantasy Makers, a.k.a. Wet 'n Wild.
Once Upon a Time, Creepy Pumpkin, Purple Potion, Black Magic, Queen of Envy, Roach Busters, Ghouls Rush In, Goosebump Suit
The first 4 are from 2-3 years ago while the last 4 are what was released last year.
I have a couple of Fright Night Claw Polishes from a couple years ago:
Phantom and Sinister
Spider Legs, Trick-or-Treat, Witches' Brew, Wicked
I also have 4 sets of Kiss imPRESS Halloween themed nails, that you can see here (in a haul post).
Now we're getting into the world of Pumpkin Polishes! This first group was a set of minis available a few Halloweens ago and were all minis of the available Pumpkins (no names).
My last "section" of this post is non-drugstore brands - more salon brand (if FingerPaints is considered "salon brand"?).
My two mini FingerPaints Halloween polishes from the Bewitched collection that I posted about earlier this month:
Under Your Spell and Toil & Trouble
To Be or Not to Beagle, Good Grief!, Where's My Blanket???
R.I.P., Monster Mash and Right Amount of Evil
Lastly, I'm moving into China Glaze land with polishes from the past 4 Halloween collections.
My first 4 are from the 2012 Wicked collection:
Immortal, Make a Spectacle, Glitter Goblin, Cast a Spell
This next group is from the 2013 Monster's Ball collection:
Boo-gie Down, Howl You Doin', Fang-tastic, Bat My Eyes
This duo is from the 2014 Apocolypse of Color collection:
Getting to Gnaw You and Rest in Pieces
This final trio is from this year's 2015 Ghoul's Night Out collection:
Cackle if You Want To, Something's Brewing, Ghostess with the Mostess
I have shared the Orly and most of the China Glaze polishes in Sunday Stash Sharings but I wanted to get everything all together and caught up since I've stumbled across some China Glaze well after the collections were out, plus of course, the newer Halloween additions.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, I believe this is the majority of my polishes that are from Halloween collections. I just realized, however, that I neglected to get any actual Wet 'n Wild polishes out. There's the couple I picked up from the Beautifully Wicked collection, the Pick Your Poison collection (some have been re-released under different names since this came out) and what I could find of the On the Prowl collection. I think I've also got a couple miscellaneous ones from NYC.
I've got quite the collection of Halloween themed polishes. It's not really surprising as I think that each year the glitter combinations that are coming out are more and more unique (remember, I don't do "indie" polishes - ordering online, no thank you). I was surprised that I didn't see any collection come out from either OPI or Orly this year.
Do you have a large Halloween collection polish stash? What's your favorite way to dress up your nails for the spooky day?
