This was that special Halloween glitter that Victoria Nail Supply sold. This has been sitting in my untried box for that long. I think I kind of avoided it because the reviews I read from others were that they were unimpressed. I had the opposite reaction - I LOOOOOVED this!! This was so dark and mysterious with shimmery glitter poking through. I also loved that it didn't scream black and orange. Maybe others were unimpressed with this compared to Fortune Teller, but I really liked this one.

I admit, even if this wasn't a glitter and an ugly color, I probably would have still gotten it based on name alone! The other day I almost bought a bright red orange color just because it's name was Clown Nose, lol. Dang was this thick!! Almost thick beyond me being able to use it and since it was a new bottle, there wasn't much room for me to add nail polish thinner to it. I like this color ok, but there is something about the type of glitter that China Glaze used for this and several of the other glitter polishes they came out with that I just don't like. It's almost like it looks like a cheap glitter or something. I'm glad I skipped out on most of the glitters that they came out with that had this kind of glitter. I liked the glitter they used in the Atlantis and Medallion and Cleopatra glitters they came out with.

I love the Halloween glitter from Victoria Nail Supply. I know it's much finer glitter than the Sally's but it's still fantastic. I love all of the glitters your showing. I liked Bad Kitty. It was super thick. I thought the shade was pretty. Oh well, we're all different. I on the other hand bought every damn bottle of polish from that huge collection. I went really nuts. I'm making sure that I wait till I see polishes swatched at least 4 times before I buy.

LUCY - LOL, waiting until a polish is swatched 4 times shouldn't take you long as many blogs as you visit every could see the same shade four times in one day, lol!!! And I did like Bad Kitty - the glitter they used just wasn't my favorite.

I LOVE that Halloween Glitter!! It looks FABULOUS on you! Does it have an actual name??

Jessica said...

Ditto to Kaide. Name? :)

I thought the same thing about Bad Kitty! I wanted it just for the name, and while the color was nice enough, it was a bit tricky and the glitter didn't look "bad" to me, it looked like my 5-year-old birthday party, lol. The glitter just didn't have the amount of dimension I think it could have.

That Halloween one is really pretty, though. :)
