Happy Halloween! China Glaze Fortune Teller

Happy Halloween everyone! My favorite holiday of the year is finally here!

Today's quick post is of my all-time favorite black and orange Halloween nail polish, China Glaze Fortune Teller. Of course, black and orange is a very popular color combination for Halloween themed polish, but none of the other polishes do it quite as well as Fortune Teller does. Fortune Teller was part of China Glaze's 2009 Halloween collection and is now pretty hard to find. Another good one from that collection was Spellbound, which is another favorite of mine and even more hard to find than Fortune Teller. Alas, I ran out of time to swatch Spellbound for you all. I will definitely be sure to bring it out next Halloween!

Anyways, China Glaze Fortune Teller is a black jelly base packed with a few different sizes of orange hex glitters. It sounds simple enough but the effect it has is absolutely stunning!! Pictured is 3 coats, and it was fairly easy to apply with no problems in the formula. It's almost an unwritten rule that when you wear Fortune Teller, you HAVE to put a matte topcoat over top because it enhances the awesomeness. Hey, I don't make the rules! So of course, I have pictures of it both with regular top coat and with a matte topcoat today.

So here's 3 coats of China Glaze Fortune Teller, first with regular top coat and the last two with a matte top coat (I used Essie's). Enjoy!








Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've all enjoyed the Halloween polishes that I showed you this year. I was hoping to do more, but life just got in the way this time around. But hey, there's always next year!

Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!!!!
