China Glaze Ghoul's Night Out - My Picks


I finally got my greedy hands on the colors I wanted from the China Glaze Ghoul's Night Out collection for Halloween 2015.  There was a misunderstanding at the local beauty supply (the owner thought that the Great Outdoors collection was Halloween - what?!?!) and never actually ordered the Ghoul's Night Out collection.  Luckily, I managed to come across a still untouched display at Sally's Beauty Supply and got all 3 that I wanted.  Yay!
I passed on the neon green ( Drink Up Witches), neon orange (Lady and the Vamp) and the bright purple (Looking Bootiful)
Cackle If You Want To, Ghostess with the Mostess, Something's Brewing
Swatches!  These are all 1 coat with a little dabbing to get a more even disbursement of glitter with a tiny bit of extra dabbing to get the larger glitters from the brush stem to the nail.
undies:  Essie Roarrrrange, 2 coats and SinfulColors Amethyst (2 coats)
Cackle If You Want To, Something's Brewing (ring & middle), Ghostess with the Mostess (index & thumb)
I think for my base color, Roarrrrange was the best choice for all the glitters to show.  Over Amethyst, the purple glitters in Ghostess with the Mostess blended in.  Oh, I know.  I loved the way that Something's Brewing looked over both base colors.

Moving on to glitter breakdowns...All of them are in a clear base.  I did feel that the clear base was on the thin/runny side.  I'd see a drop rolling down the brush stem and have to quickly move it back over the bottle - I wasn't quick enough on one and have glitter on the outside of my bottle now.  Cackle If You Want To is made up of multiple sizes of matte glitters in black and a striped purple(!).  The color texture of the purple makes this so unique!  Something's Brewing is similar in vein to Cackle except it has light lime green matte glitters in multiple sizes mixed with the black.  Ghostess with the Mostess is basically both of the other polishes combined with additional peachy-orange matte glitters in multiple sizes.  While in my blog pictures you can't see the extra-large peachy orange hex glitters, I do have a couple on the nails of my other hand.  Matching hands for the win!

Have you come across the China Glaze Ghoul's Night Out Halloween 2015 collection?  What do you think of the ongoing matte glitter trend?
