Pinwheel Polish "My Favorite Halloween Movies" collection (Swatches + Review)

Hi ladies! Today I have swatches & reviews of Janna's "My Favorite Halloween Movies" collection.

This collection has a total of 5 polishes, 3 glitter toppers and 2 crellies.

To avoid repeating myself too much, I'll just type this down now, I used 1 coat of Out the Door top coat for every swatch.

Trick r Treat is a mixture of orange, black and white hex glitters. It also has grey medium sized hex & dot glitters with holo micro glitters, all suspended in a clear base. I used 2 thin coats of "Trick r Treat" over 3 coats of "Melon" by Cherimoya. This polish was so easy to apply and dried quickly. I had to do no fishing or glitter placement with this one because the brush picked up a nice amount of glitter. I really loved the way this combo looked because the glitter really popped!

Silent Hill consists of white and grey square glitters, some black dots and grey hexes suspended in a milky white, almost grey, base. I used 2 medium-thick coats of "Silent Hill" over 1 coat of a white polish. This polish did require some fishing and glitter placement. The black dots did not really get picked up by the brush but if you flip the bottle upside down for a few minutes they should be relatively easier to pick up. This is definitely my favorite from the collection. The fishing & placing is very worth it in my opinion.

The Monster Squad is a combination of a lot of different sizes and shapes of glitter. As described by Janna "it has an assortment of grey, green, bronze and orange glitters in a warm, smoky base". I used 2 thin coats of "The Monster Squad" over 2 coats of "Beau Khaki" by Sinful Colors. This polish was super easy to apply because the brush got a lot of the glitter. I loved the way this looked over this dark green color, I felt the colors went really well together. 

The Lost Boys is made up of various types of red and black glitters with some white dots. There are nice big red heart and dot glitters along with some smaller hex & holographic shreds of glitter. The black glitters include a mix of micro, small hex and bar glitters. All those beautiful glitters are suspended in a creamy pink base. I used 2 thin coats of "The Lost Boys" over 2 coats of "Sailor's Delight" by Sinful SHINE. I only had to do a little fishing and glitter placement with the heart glitter. Other than that, the application was beautifully smooth & easy. I feel like this polish would also be great for Valentine's Day.

The Sanderson Sisters is a beautiful mix of a lot of different circle and hex glitters. This polish has large purple holographic and medium pastel yellow circle glitters alongside various purple and orange small hex glitters which include some holographic bits mixed in there. I used 2 thin coats of "The Sanderson Sisters" over 3 coats of "Yellow Kitty" by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. I like these two polishes together but I honestly thing TSS would look even more stunning over a dark shade like black or a really nice dark purple. This polish was easy to apply but I did have to do a little bit of glitter placement with the dot glitters.

This collection is still available in Janna's online shop. Be sure to pick them up before she sells out!
