Wheel Y9: Halloween Polishes

Getting this wheel of Halloween polishes in on the last Wednesday before this year's holiday. I had some camera trouble the day I painted and photographed this one, so please forgive the uneven quality in these shots. I fear my trusty point and shoot may finally be coming to the end of its useful life but I'm hanging on to it until it's well and truly dead.

1. Fright Night Claw Polish Creepin' It Real (2 coats)
2. Fright Night Claw Polish I'm Here for the Boos (2)
3. Fright Night Claw Polish Ghostly Glow (2) [coffin bottle shape was definitely more interesting]
4. OPI Ghostess Mostess (3)
5. Sally Hansen New Lengths Ceramic Glow in the Dark (2)
6. Fantasy Makers Glo Money Glo Problems 92)
7. Fantasy Makers Roach Busters (3)

Bottles 1 through 5:

6 through 11:

12 through 14:

15 through 17; these were part of the great stash smashem up of 2014 (post here, scroll down), but I never got around to cleaning them and decided they looked suitably zombie-like for Halloween as they are:

18 through 20:

The first six of these were supposed to glow, but only the first five did. I was impressed that the Sally Hansen held its own against the newer polishes, and disappointed that the Fantasy Makers was a dud (maybe I needed to shake shake shake it some more?). The Disco Lights (#20) did show a very very faint glow; not sure it was meant to or just caught light from the others and reflected since it is a very pale polish).

Edited to add that Nail Wheel Wednesday will be going on a planned hiatus until December, as I've now posted all the ones I've painted and am away from my stash until U.S. Thanksgiving.


  1. Great. I love Hallowe'en polishes :-D

  2. Those skull polishes have the perfect bottle for Halloween! I have to do a Halloween design and these gave me all sorts of inspiration. Thank you!


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
