Favourite Halloween Nail Polishes!

Halloween (and Autumn in general) is my favourite time of the year. It’s also the time for my favourite kind of nail polishes – HALLOWEEN POLISHES!!!! Make no mistake, these polishes are not limited to wear strictly during the haunting season. I indulge in these awesomely spooky polishes year round. From the innovative glitter/base combos to the imaginative (and often punny) Halloween or Autumnal names, these polishes will put you in the mood for pumpkin spice lattes and jack-o-lantern carving in no time!!!

Each polish is inspired by a famous witch antagonist. Perfect for the haunting season that is upon us don’t you think? Let’s take a look!!!!

Glam Polish Coven Collection

ZELENA (from Once Upon a Time)

Zelena is a fabulously witchy green jelly polish with silver holographic flakies. I’m a huge Once Upon a Time fan and this polish truly captures the persona who inspired it!!!! Beautiful formula, fully opaque in just two coats (plus top coat).

Ms Eva Ernst (from The Witches)

This is a deep berry/burgundy jelly polish with silver holographic flakies. This is a stunning vampy polish (just like the inspiration’s red lips) – my favourite type of polish to wear!!! It has that ‘glows from within’ quality for sure. This is two easy coats plus top coat.

Nancy Downs (from The Craft)

Nancy Downs is a deep blue/purple (often referred to as blurple) jelly polish with silver holographic flakes. Much like the witch it’s named for, this polish is complex! It’s deep and moody and then bam!!! That sparkle!!! I couldn’t stop staring at my nails. Two coats plus top coat!!

Glam Polish Coven Halloween Nail Art

This is a beautiful collection and I love the thought that went into it. The polishes were easy to apply, dried quickly, and removal was easy peasy. I got so many compliments when I was wearing them! I love how spooky and Halloween-y they are, yet these are wearable shades no matter what the season. I will definitely be doing some Christmas-themed nail art with these in the near future, so stay tuned!
