Forget princesses, prince charming, fairies, and love songs… this year China Glaze is getting wicked. Evil queens, dragons, poison and dark magic is this year’s theme; the 2017 Halloween Nail Polish Collection takes you to a place where fairytale dreams are broken, where villains always win and happily ever after is non-existent.
Welcome to Happily Never After.
The team at China Glaze has been cranking out some amazing collections in 2017 and this one does not disappoint! With 2 luscious cremes, 2 gorgeous pearls, 1 wicked shimmer, and 1 funky topper, the Happily Never After collection delivers on its promise of fairy tales gone wrong that will make your client’s nails look oh-so-right!
Here’s the shade breakdown for this dangerously lovely halloween nail polish collection:
Crown for Whatever — Rich Purple Creme Matte
Do You, Boo! — Chunky Black & Gold Glitter Top
Life’s Grimm — Black Shimmer with Green/Gold undertones
Lookin’ Gore-geous — Deep Red/Purple Creme
Sin-derella — Pink/ Purple Pearl
Queen, Please! — White Pearl with Pink/Purple undertones
I am not really a Halloween person but this collection has couple of really interesting colors and after all I do love dark nails. To start with my favorites – Sin-derella OMG this color is beyond this world. Grey with pink shimmer with great formula, fully opaque in two coats. I could not stop looking at my nails. Beautiful combo of the grey and pink shimmer that is very tiny and refined and it sparkles beautifully. If you have t pick only one color from this collection it should be Sin-derella. Another one that really stood out for me is Life’s Grimm – loved the black with very nicely done green /gold shimmer. Great formula, went on evenly and fully opaque in two coats. I would love to see more of this with different colored shimmer.
I am not into mattes so I topped Crown for whatever with Do You, boo! and it made interesting combo. Do you boo is a bit chunky or I am simply not used to use chunky glitter. Queen please is gorgeous on it’s own and I had the worst time trying to capture how pretty it is – low maintenance easy to apply quick manicure. So I included photo of it where I used it as a topper over Life’s grimm – it just made golden shimmer to pop more.
