Retro Sunday Squared - Halloween Month Kickoff with Vintage Fantasy Makers!

Happy Sunday my lacquered lovelies! I am so excited to bring you all today's edition of Retro Sunday Squared with my girl Dana over at Polished Claws Up! Dana and I are both huge Halloween nuts so we decided that all October, Retro Sunday Squared will be bringing you the best polishes of Halloween's past! Today may be the last day in September but we couldn't wait, so to kick off Halloween month, we're sharing with you vintage Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers polishes today.

Fantasy Makers is Wet n Wild's Halloween brand that they do every year. These days, Fantasy Makers polishes are packaged in adorable little tombstones but back in the day they were in regular old bottles. I am not sure the exact date of these polishes but I believe they are from somewhere around the early 2000's. Correct me if I'm wrong! Vintage Fantasy Makers are so fun because there are TONS of them out there and it's interesting to see how the brand has evolved over the years.

So without further ado, here are the two vintage Fantasy Makers polishes I have chosen to show you all today! Hope you enjoy and don't forget to check out Dana's Fantasy Makers picks as well =)

First up is Fantasy Makers Sparklin'. I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS POLISH. Sorry for shouting but it really is that awesome. Sparklin' combines my two favorite things ever: shimmer and color shifting glitter. Combining glitter and shimmer together can get kind of tricky because often times the shimmer will overtake the glitter or vice versa. But this polish has the absolute perfect ratio of glitter to shimmer and together they pack quite a punch! Sparklin' has a green jelly base packed with golden shimmer and blue to green to gold color shifting glitter! YES! SO GOOD!

So here's 3 coats of Fantasy Makers Sparklin'! Don't forget to enlarge these pics, Sparklin' is definitely worth a closer look =)

Next up is Fantasy Makers Glitterin'. Glitterin' is a black jelly base packed with red micro glitter. It is very reminiscent of China Glaze Lubu Heels or RBL Black Russian - but better because it was meant for Halloween! Yes, I got rid of my Lubu Heels because I wanted to keep this polish instead. You know me, I'm a sucker for anything Halloween! Red and black polishes are perfect for Halloween so this is a great addition to my Fantasy Makers collection =)

Here's 2 coats of Fantasy Makers Glitterin'. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned all October long for a Halloween polish extravaganza here at The Scholarly Nail! I can't wait!!

  7. These are both gorgeous! This is my first year of being polish addicted so I only have a few of this years Fantasy Makers, Nail In The Coffin and Go With The Glow. I almost died when I saw the cute little tombstones. I am using Nail In The Coffin for my first Halloween mani today.

  10. I think Halloween is probably my favorite Holiday!! I have LOVED it since I was a kid; there is something magical about this time of year. Even though, we don't get "Seasons" where I live; it's still nice to get a little of Fall here. I look forward to all your Halloween posts and I have to say Glitterin'is AWESOME!!! I have two colors similar to it (Lubu Heels and Garnet Gems by Milani). Thanks for he great post!!!!!

  14. The first thing I thought of when I saw Glitterin' was Lubu Heels. Great dupe!

    I have only one of these oldie Fantasy Makers that I got in a giveaway ages ago but I forget the name, but it's similar to these dark blackened bases with bright shimmer, but in purple.

  23. I believe I have one Fantasy Makers that I picked up at Kmart on clearance for less than a dollar. I can't remember what it is right now as it is in the bottom of my untried box, but I will be posting it soon. Other than that I don't own any Fantasy Makers but I must get at least one this year.
