China Glaze Halloween Monster Ball 2013

Happy Halloween! Grad school has really been kicking my butt and keeping me so busy that I didn't even have time for some fun Halloween nail art this year. If you did a Halloween mani yourself, we'd love to see it posted on our Facebook wall!

For those of you who are like me and don't have time to do holiday nail art, China Glaze has you covered with their newest 12-piece Halloween collection. I've got three of them to show you today.

First up is Fang-Tastic- a mix of purple, green, blue, and magenta hex glitters of different sizes in a clear base. This polish definitely isn't a traditional Halloween glitter topper but I do like the color combo. The swatch below shows one coat of Fang-Tastic over China Glaze Fade Into Hue.

Next up is Ghoulish Glow- an sheer top coat that you can use over a mani to make it glow in the dark. To get your mani glowing, apply one thin coat over your mani and wait for it to dry. Once dry, you'll need to "charge" the polish next to a bright lightbulb for about 30 seconds. Flip the lights off and watch it glow! The glow in the dark pigments are a little mattifying, but won't change the overall look of your mani, as you can see below.

See? Barely there.
Now the hardest part is definitely trying to photograph your glowing nails! Phew, I tried everything to get my spotted glowing mani to show on the camera and I just couldn't get it to work. The bottle definitely showed up though!

Now for my surprise favorite of the bunch, Bump in the Night is a one coat matte black textured polish. Yep, one coat! I was expecting application to be a little weird, as some textured polishes can. But nope! Easy application, amazing coverage, and a creepy spooky look with the texture as it dries. I'm not a fan of matte texture for every day but this is a great Halloween look!

The Monster Ball collection consists of 12 polishes and you can see them all at China Glaze's website. You can purchase China Glaze nail polish at Sally's, Ulta, and many other salons.
