Halloween Polish Picks - 2015 Edition


Halloween is almost here, which means it's also time for my annual Halloween polish picks! This year I decided to forego the traditional bright orange shades and went with a celestial night theme, as you may have guessed by the photo above. I hope you enjoy the swatches below and let me which are your favorites or if you've tried any of these before! I've included a mix of new and old shades--a few were limited editions that may be hard to find, while others are new shades from this year's holiday collections.



  1. Sweet Star: silver with multi-tonal shimmer (Chanel, 2014) 
  2. Twilight: dusty plum with purple shimmer (Laura Mercier, 2012)
  3. Nuit Enchante: sheer merlot with burgundy-red shimmer (Lancome, Holiday 2015) 
  4. Extravagant Night: deep purple with gold and violet micro-glitter (Estee Lauder, 2010)
  5. Endless Night: glossy blackened grape (Nars, 2011)
  6. Midnight Rose: dark orchid purple cream (Lancome, 2012)
  7. Midnight: shimmery amethyst purple (Dolce & Gabbana, 2009)
  8. Nuit Merveilleuse: shimmery bright violet (Guerlain, Holiday 2015)

  1. The violet and blue shades have me transfixed! Such a chic "grownup" alternative to the usual pumpkin-inspired manicures for Halloween.

    1. Thank you Vita! I am a big fan of violet and deep blue shades :) I think I might paint mine for Halloween with the Rescue Beauty Lounge shade "Under the Stars"

  3. Like I said, this is always one of my favorite posts, Shannon! Gorgeous, gorgeous picks! I don't wear cool purples very well at all (although I do have Chanel Taboo) but blues always capture my heart!

    1. Hi Larie, Thanks so much! I love blues as well - have you seen the recent Chanel blue, Fortissimo? I like that it's just a little bit brighter than their classic Blue Satin. :) Have a great Halloween! :)

    1. Aw, thanks Liz! :) It's always fun deciding on the colors for the Halloween post! I usually choose way more than I need and then have to narrow down the choices. I look forward every year to Halloween because it's not a sentimental holiday and is just about having fun! :)
