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.

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

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!

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.

I got mine at, 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!

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!

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!

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)

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. 😀

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

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??

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!

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.

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.
