Fright Night Claw Polishes for Halloween

Hooray for Halloween nail polishes!  The Fright Night lacquers are especially fun because they come in coffin-shaped bottles.  The funny-shaped cap can make for tricky application, but I can easily let that slide for the cuteness factor.

And here’s what they look like on claws:

Voodoo is a bright red glitter in a red jelly base.  This is two coats.  It’s gritty on its own, so a topcoat is definitely needed.  I used Seche Vite here.


Toxic is a dark green foil.  It really shines in bright sunlight.  Two coats.


Phantom is a very chic gray shimmer.  Two coats but three would have been better as there was still some patchiness on my middle finger.


Poison is a blue/purple blurple metallic.  Two coats.

OPI I Vant to Be Alone-Star + POP Beauty Twinkle glitter

I Vant to be Alone-Star is from OPI’s Texas collection.  Why the Vant instead of Want?  Is this a typo or some kind of Transylvanian reference?  That aside, it is a pretty, cool grey pearl.  (Disregard the raggedy cuticles; these pix were taken awhile ago.)


Then I layered POP Beauty Twinkle glitter polish on top.  It’s a primarily silver holographic glitter, but you can see hints of pink, green, blue, and gold as well.  Since it’s finely textured it’s not as hard to remove as coarser, denser glitters.
