A few new cool Fall and Halloween drugstore nail finds!


I found some cool new fall nail stuff while out shopping this week.  I noticed that a lot of the Halloween things are the same as last year's (like the Blue Cross pumpkins and mini polishes and a lot of the Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers stuff), but there were a few new ones.

 
The new 2012 Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers colors:
12487 Nail In The Coffin (black with silver and orange microglitter)
12488  Rest in Pieces (black with purple microglitter)
12489 Once Upon A Time (black with small red glitter and medium red microglitter.  Possible Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers dupe.)


 Revlon Halloween 2012 Nail Collection:
Black Magic (black creme)
Haunted Heart (orange with gold shimmer)
Spooky Skull (white jelly/creme)
Wicked Star (blue-green base with yellow-green duochrome shimmer)
Revlon Halloween nail art stencils in Mustaches, Spiders and Skulls.
There were a few other stencil designs, but I don't remember all of them.

 
Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Nail Color Collection for Fall 2012
The entire Lustre Shine collection is duochrome/multichrome. Brings back memories of my beloved Sally Hansen Nail Prisms!  There were a few other colors that I didn't grab because they were dupes of other colors that came out already this year, but I'll probably grab the rest when they go on sale.  But I had to have these:
003 Firefly (mave-bronze-green-gold multichrome)
006 Lava (pink-magenta-bronze-orange glass fleck multichrome)
008 Copperhead (bronze-gold-green-purple-blue multichrome)


  NYC In A New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish in Python Green.

This was on a new Fall 2012 collection display along with a purple polish that didn't look very interesting and a couple of lipglosses, shadow palettes and eyeliners.  This color was the only thing that caught my eye; it's a golden olive green with a slightly smoky-looking base and a subtle duochrome shift.  

I'm still waiting for all the other Halloween-themed makeup collections to hit the stores, but so far this is all I've found.  Pretty cool, though!

  1. Oh man! I want that Revlon WHITE JELLY YUM and I've never really liked NYC polishes but my jaw may have dropped a little at that bottle shot. Gimme. I think the WNW Once Upon a Time might be a dupe of Spoiled Ants In My Pants - that's what it looked like to me when I saw it at Ulta the other day!

    1. Yeah, I don't really care for NYC polishes, either (so watery!), but that green... oh man. So pretty.

  2. Awesome! Will there be swatches soon? :D

  3. Jealous of you girls in the US right now! The UK releases have been terrible so far! :(

  4. I can't wait to see your swatches of the lusterchromes!! I hope they are up to the quality of the old awesome nail prisms I still love so much :)

  5. I picked up the same Tombstone polishes! Once Upon A Time is a dead on dupe for Spoiled Ants In My Pants, and Rest In Pieces is a dead on dupe for Wet N Wild Night Prowl. Go figure, recycled Wet N Wild Colors. I bought them anyway since I dig the tombstone bottles.

    1. I don't think I've seen the Spoiled one (or maybe I have, but I don't remember it!), but it's definitely a dupe of Night Prowl. I think they even released it under a different name last Halloween, too. Oh well, still cool!

    2. I actually like them better in the tombstone bottles! The Lustre Shines are awesome as well. I've only managed to swatch Lava so far, but it's gorgeous! Going to swatch Moonstone tonight (I think), even though it's not as cool as I had hoped. Firefly is pretty darn cool though! I didn't grab Copperhead since they're pricey and 4 was my limit (I grabbed Scarab because I am a sucker for blue!), but my walgreens is charging $8.99 for these so I'm trying to wait for the rest until they pop up elsewhere or go on sale. I'm sure when you swatch these I'll have to go buy Copperhead anyway.:)

  7. Oooh, that NYC polish! Need to check my Meijer for that one. The Fantasy Makers look pretty cool too!

  8. I' not a fan of Sally Hansen but these three look tempting!

  9. Okay, that's it, I'm getting a US visa. Do you think having better nail polish is a good enough reason? I'm craving anything orange right now.

    1. Haha! Well, if you ever come here just for vacation, I'm sure you'll have a whole suitcase of polish to take back with you :)

      By the way, I saw that you emailed me, I'm really, really behind on emails so I haven't had a chance to reply!

  10. Right as I go on a no-buy, everyone starts releasing the black with orange glitter polishes I've been wanting for years. :p

    Python Green is lovely! Reminds me of my favorite shadow for playing up my green eyes, NYX Golden Bronze.

    1. NYX Golden Bronze, eh? Sounds like something I'd like... I'm going to have to take a look at that color!

      Delete
    2. It's a great color - I have I have some brown spots in the green also, and it really intensifies the green and makes the brown look more golden at the same time. It'd be really pretty with your eyes too!

  11. If those NYC polishes usually have NYC-themed names . . . does that mean Python Green is named after the snake that escaped the Bronx Zoo last year?? That's awesome.

    1. Haha, I wonder! I didn't even think of that!

    1. It looks like it'll be pretty similar, maybe a little lighter? I'll have to find my Bad Fairy and compare them!

  15. Interested to see how Python Green compares to Butter London Wallis actually.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think Wallis might be chunkier and darker, but they seem like they could be relatively similar!

  18. The NYC display I saw with that green also had a topcoat that looked something like Dior Rock Coat. I grabbed that to play with.

  27. Hey there,

    Just wanted to know where I could find the Fantasy Makers polishes? I'm in Louisiana.

    1. Any drugstore/grocery store that carries Wet n Wild should have them, but if you can't find them yet, they might not be putting them out until closer to October

  40. Looking forward to your Lustre Shine swatches and reviews!

  41. Grabbed all the Fantasy Makers at Ulta for 1.99 each. They also had China Glaze glow in the dark top coat for $7 at the register! I love Halloween time!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I found the Fantasy Makers line at the local Halloween store! (I'm in Ottawa, Ontario.) I've seen it in the past at Shoppers Drug Mart as well, but haven't checked this year yet. I got the 3 colours Scrangie pictured above as well as

    12490 - Go With The Glow (glow in the dark topcoat)

    I've got China Glaze Ghoulish Glow as well, so I'll have to see which one works better.

  43. I don't own Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers, but looking at swatches, the red in the new Wet n Wild polish is a bit brighter (based on reality, maybe the Lippmann polish doesn't photograph well?) The glitters are a dead ringer though.

    ReplyDelete
  44. the fantasy makers with red micro glitter sounds interesting...i'll have to look for that one. i find glitters very difficult to remove though so i usually avoid them. also, that NYC "python green" reminds me of a Maybelline express finish i bought years ago called "khaki fringe", also a beautiful golden-green. great post, and i am loving the affordable prices!
