You may remember the glow-in-the-dark glitter and neon/black/white creme pumpkins from the Rite Aid displays I shared early this month. Meijer put out some of those same polishes plus more but not in those displays, just lined up in boxes on the shelf. In addition to the colors that Rite Aid had, they had two more cremes (teal and lime), and seven shades of chunky glitter (these colors looked more suited to Christmas and Hanukkah but they were definitely in pumpkin bottles). They also had some of the pumpkins individually packaged.
Not too far from the pumpkins was a display of glow-in-the-dark glitters called Nite Lites. BunnyMasseuse had sent me a photo of these at her Ulta a few weeks ago so I had been keeping an eye out. After I spotted them at Meijer they did show up at my Ulta as well. There are four shades of these: Pink Flamingo, Blue Moonglo, Tangelo, and Glo Worm Green.
These Nite Lite glitters strongly resemble the pumpkin ones; look at the greens:
The back label on the Nite Lite ones say they're distributed by Diamond Cosmetics, Sunrise, FL; I thought the pumpkins were from Blue Cross but the label doesn't say.
Next to the Nite Lites was a stack of Color Club sets, with four polishes and some decals. The back of the box says the polish colors are Bewitching, Charmed I'm Sure, Spellbound, and Hocus Pocus, though which is which I don't know. The glitter reminds me a lot of Magic Attraction.
Meijer also had Claw Polish in coffin-shaped bottles; I'd seen this a week or two earlier at a local chain drugstore. The display was six slots wide but there were only five different colors; I don't know if one color was already sold out or what. The ones that were there were Poison (purple), VooDoo (red glitter), Sinister (black), Bloodshed (red creme), and Toxic (green).
On a bottom shelf at a different Meijer, I found a Manic Panic display. Because it was out in a main aisle very near the greeter at the front door, I was trying to be more stealthy about my picture taking, so I didn't get a great shot of. Look in the gloom at the bottom right of the shot to catch a glimpse.
There were four polishes in the display, in witchy-looking pointed cap bottles. I didn't manage to get the shade names on these.
And finally, not in the Halloween section but they feel sort of related to me because of the vampire angle, I saw the
Twilight collection by Nox.
These were 6.99 for 17ml (.58 oz.), which puts them in about the same price class as Orly and Sally Hansen Complete Salon. I know what I'm getting with Orly and SH, but I don't know Nox, so I didn't get any of these. I did think the metal emblem on the back of the bottles was interesting (or maybe that was the front and the ones in the display were backwards); I don't have anything like it in my stash.
I don't understand what a lot of the Nox colors have to do with Twilight. If they'd asked me, I would have told them they needed an amber (like Edward's eyes) and a forest green (for all the trees around Forks) and a grey (for the overcast and rainy days that make it possible for the vamps to be out and about). What colors say "sparkly emo vampire" to you?
