Good evening! I received this collection recently and rushed to get them done! I have several of the polishes that Sally Hansen released for Halloween 2014. The collection is the Costume-ize Your Nails and in full, it consists of 4 Insta-Dri shades, 4 Salon Effects Nail Stickers, 2 Fuzzy Coat polishes and 2 Big Glitter toppers. Lots of goodies!
I have all 4 Insta-Dri shades, a Big Glitter topper and a Fuzzy Coat topper.
We’ll start with the Insta-Dri polishes!
Fright Night is your perfect black glossy creme polish. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Pumpkin Queen is an orange creme with an incredibly subtle shimmer. I used 3 thin coats for these photos. The first 2 coats were a little patchy, but the third seemed to even it all out.
Scaredy Matte is a black matte polish. Slight brush strokes are visible and if you have prominent nail ridges or imperfections, Scaredy Matte might accentuate them. I used 2 coats for these photos.
OMGhost is a creamy white with the best name of the collection. I used 2 coats for these photos.
Witchful Thinking Fuzzy Coat
I want to like bar glitters like these, I really do… but something about them give me the creeps and I don’t know why! Witchful Thinking is a black and pale orange micro bar glitter in a clear base. I used 1 coat over Pumpkin Queen. Overall, application was great. I got a decent amount of glitters in one coat and they all laid down nicely. Bar glitters just aren’t my preference in polishes.
Dressed To Thrill Big Glitters
Now we get to my favorite of the set! Dressed To Thrill is a clear based packed with silver holographic glitters in small hexes and squares and micro glitters. I used 1 coat over Fright Night for these photos.
Overall this collection covers the perfect shades for a Halloween collection. Are they the most original? No. But the price is decent and the performance is really good. Pumpkin Queen needed 3 coats, but aside from that, they were really nice.
Insta-Dri Polishes – $4.99
Fuzzy Coats & Big Glitters – $5.99
Salon Effect Nail Stickers (not shown) – $9.99
Where To Buy: Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS & Target
If you have a chance to snag any of these, I would say go for it. I go through black and white polishes quicker than anything, so I practically stockpile them. These cremes are nice and the black matte is pretty nice as well.
