China Glaze Halloween 2011 Collection

Halloween is all about over-the-top style and China Glaze has just what every girl and ghoul needs to complete their costume. Put the finishing touches on any look with the new China Glaze HAUNTING collection – a six-piece set of mysterious colors and effects perfect for All Hallows Eve, including a glow-in-the-dark Top Coat and a ‘crackling’ top coat for a cobweb effect.

China Glaze captures the spirits lurking in the dark in six sexy, sophisticated shades that are on trend, exciting and will be on every costume crafter’s “must have” list. Whether a look is dark and mysterious, or bold and dramatic, China Glaze’s HAUNTING collection pulls together any ensemble and will undoubtedly make heads turn – just like China Glaze’s celebrity followers (Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Nicole Ritchie and Dita Von Teese, to name a few)! Colors in this collection include:

  • Haunting Shadowy black with shimmering silver glitter
  • Crimson Deep purple crème with a hint of blood red
  • Near Dark Rich mossy green crème
  • It’s Alive Vibrant green glitter
  • Ghoulish Glow Glow-in-the-Dark top coat
  • Black Mesh Crackle Glaze top coat for a cobweb-like crackle effect

availability: September/October 2011

    I love the whole entire collection. And not because I am a dark soul and adore Halloween either. All of the colors in this collection screams Halloween and the each are so pretty!

  2. Avatar of Jill AnGeLwInGz

    Yes I need these!

  3. Ooh, I like the glow in the dark topcoat!

  4. I was over crackle the instant it came out lol

  5. Natsume

    it’s alive and ghoulish glow looks interesting.

  7. Will definitely be buying Ghoulish Glow! :D
    Maybe Near Dark too. ;)

  8. Liz

    eh, I don’t know… I’m not a Halloween person, and I think crackle is very tacky, so I’m really not digging this. The glow in the dark thing is kinda cute I guess, but again, nothing I would *actually* wear myself.

  9. UGGGHH. I need swatches like nooooow!!

  10. Piarpreet

    Where can you buy this?

    • Avatar of Kelly Kelly Marie

      I got mine at Head2ToeBeauty.com, the set was like $11 or $12 and then the individual polishes are $3. Everything arrived SO QUICKLY, it was amazing (I chose to ship with USPS Priority, they have flat rate shipping so it was cheaper AND faster). I HIGHLY recommend their website!

  11. Green glitter and glow in the dark polish, plz. Wants.

  12. Rachel W.

    are these available now? or when will they be?

  13. Carrie

    “Its Alive” reminds me of Orly’s “Its not Rocket Science”. Interested to see it swatched!

  14. It’s Alive and Near Dark are the ones that interest me.

  15. Nicole R.

    I already bought everything (except the crackle since I have OPI’s)and I love them all! The colors are awesome!!!

  16. claire

    Is this already out any where?

  17. malia

    Glow in the dark topcoat? Yay, count me sold!!

  18. rubberchick

    I have all six colors. The Ghoulish Glow does glow in the dark when worn alone or under the Crackle. However, when worn as a topcoat over other colors it is VERY faint(you can hardly see the glow)…that is my only disappointment with the collection…other than that, love them!

  19. Angel

    when does this come out?

  20. Alecia

    Is it’s alive different from Zombie Zest from 2010 awakening collection?

    • Lori

      I own both and they are very different. It’s Alive is my favorite of the two and I cannot wait to wear it soon.

  21. Pamela M

    This collection is ok. I bought Haunting because I’m a goth at heart lol. I was hoping this collection would have a polish that has just black glitters, rather than a black base with silver sparkle. I wish I had my own nailpolish line!

  22. Bianca

    I’m just back in the Netherlands after a long holiday in the USA. I’ve tried to find these during my holiday, but they weren’t in the stores yet :( Love them! (I found a glow in the dark nailpolish by OPI at Ulta though)

  23. Michelle W.

    When will these set be available and where can I find them? Thanks so much :)

  24. Joellyn

    Not only are the colors my type, but that purple lipstick is to DIE for!!!! I need to find out the brand & color cause I need another purple lippie in my life. :-D

  25. REALLY excited about this collection! China Glaze knows how to do a Halloween collection!

  26. Bean

    This looks so fun i gotta track this down lol I have a hard time finding china glaze in vancouver.

  27. Avatar of _An_ Lumi

    Oohh glow in the dark polish. I’ve never tried it, but sounds neat. :D

  28. Stephanie

    Love the look of It’s Alive and Ghoulish Glow, will have to see swatches of the rest. I already have Black Mesh.

  29. LindseyD

    I just bought Ghoulish Glow and OPI’s Zom-body To Love, I also bought the WnW glow in the dark nail polish that’s in one of those packs. I can’t wait to compare and contrast all of them.

  30. There is also China Glaze Awakening.

    CHINA GLAZE Awakening Collection 4 Pack includes 3 Ghoulish Glitters .5 oz. each, plus Fast Forward Top Coat .5 oz. FREE! Ghoulish Glitters are Mummy May I, Zombie Zest and ICK-A-BOD-Y.

  31. Seeing this nail polish everywhere! Not entirely sold on the idea yet, but I suppose to the right party or for the right occasion, it won’t look too much like you’ve let you manicure go bad…

  32. Hang

    Okay, so i got the glow in the dark polish for the salon that i work at, and it really isn’t too visible in the dark, unless you apply about three coats. So I recommend only using it under crackle!

  33. emily

    Thank god no orange (nothing against it, just seen too much of it on Halloween lol)! Very creative release! =]

  34. Michelle

    Where can I get China Glaze? (I mean not on the internet) I like the glow in the dark one but will I take advatage of it?

  35. Ooooooh! I like and I dont even wear colored polish. When I first saw this, I thought ” china halloween”

  36. Avatar of artemis artemis

    wow, gorgeous

  37. I got the ghoulish glow for free from Ulta with my rewards points. I know its not something new but the thought of putting the crackle over it is fantastic. can’t wait to try it out. Plus it doesn’t take much to make it glow!!!

  38. Joey Bear

    Love love love!!!

  39. annabelle

    already have it’s alive and ghoulish glow. love them both!
    the other colors are too common to see around so i didn’t get it.
    have to say i’m also getting OPI’s glow in the dark nail polish as well.

  40. rmmahal

    It looks like this is a fun collection for Halloween but also wearable for the fall and winter. :) love it.

  41. Violet

    I love all of these, actually! Absolutely perfect, amazing collection.

  42. cute504dimples

    OMG….i love these colors..I tried a black nail color which i loved by OPI so im kinda slowly gradually getting into the darks colors. Do u know where they can be bought at??

  43. Kim-Mary

    Love all the nail polishes, but I love the model’s makeup more. What brand/colors is she wearing?

  44. Avatar of Melisa Melisa

    Just an FYI, I went to Sally Beauty today and they had everything. I picked up the four pack and it was cheaper than expected! Can’t wait to use the glow in the dark one tonight!

  45. In addition, some stores are also carrying Cross Iron – an orange color – that CG has brought back exclusively for this Halloween (previously from the Ski collection). If you are lucky, you might be able to find a four pack that includes Cross Iron rather than the top coat.

  46. EsteeDarla

    Omg I’m got to get thewhole collection

  47. Kelly

    I LOVE THESE! I ordered them off of head2toebeauty.com and absolutely don’t regret it one bit!!

  48. brittany

    The only color that looks interesting out of the entire collection is the green polish, other wise everything else is kind of boring.

  49. Avatar of Leora goldberryfaery

    Hi! I was just at Ulta and they had these. FYI the last picture is the most like the actual colors. I ended up getting a different green glitter (one from orly called Here Comes Trouble) cuz I wanted a brighter green than the China glaze Its Alive.

  50. Brittany

    Im kind of into getting the glow in the dark and it’s alive polish everything else just blah.

  51. Sri

    absolutely a Halloween perfect! (bookmarks this page) :)

  52. China Glaze Cross Iron 360 is also a part of the Halloween 2011 Collection. :)
