This is the only dark nailpolish i have kept for years now. I love wearing it during the Halloween season :)
Its a semi-sheer black color with different size orange glitter. It takes 3 coats to become opaque or you can always just layer 1 coat it on top a black nailpolish. If you don't use a top coat the polish will dry with a texture.

I absolutely love this lacquer, one of my fav's! Black jelly with different sizes orange glitter. 2 coats do it for me.

Black jelly polish with chunky orange glitter in various sizes and shapes. Three coats for the best coverage. I love that there's a lot of glitter so you get an even amount across the nail with one stroke. The color is really funky and cool--perfect for Halloween, in particular. I'd love if China Glaze released more black jellies glitters.

This is ChG's '09 halloween nail polish that was on every nail blog. It's very gorgeous. its a bunch of different orange hex glitters. Was three coats though.

LOVED this nail polish! It was part of the Halloween collection for 2009. It's a black polish with huge chunks of orangey-gold glitter. I tried it 2 ways, one was layers and layers until it was as opaque as I wanted, which gave more sparkle because there was more glitter on my nails. I also layered it on top of Liquid Leather (black) and got just a nice little sparkle that was more subtle.
I'm not sure why so many people are having a hard time removing their glitter polishes, I have almost every glitter polish from China Glaze and have never had a hard time removing, I soak some cotton with pure acetone (I don't have acrylic nails) and hold it against my nails for a few seconds and it comes off quite easily. I also use a base coat so maybe that helps the glitter come off my nail easily.
I think that the glitters do tend to chip easier than the others but for me it's because I will layer so many layers to get the effect I want that the nail polish is thick and that makes it easy to chip. I do not blame the polish for this in any way since the non-glitter polishes by CG have great staying power.

This is a gorgeous polish!! It's a black base with irregular shaped and sized chunks of metallic copper glitter. I've tried layering this by itself for an opaque finish but found it to be easier to just apply one or two coats over top of a black base.
Looks great with a hi-shine clear top-coat.
I haven't experience any extra chipping with this polish than with any other polish, but I wash my hands often throughout the day and have a bad habit of habitually banging my hands into things when I'm walking around.:/
I had swapped for this polish and then shortly after found a 2nd bottle on clearance at Sally's after Halloween, so I nabbed it up as a back-up.
This is a great polish color for Fall especially, but any time of the year would be great.:)
It is a little bit of a pain to remove due to all of the glitter, but I've found that if you just apply one or two coats over top of a black base coat, it removes easier than if you applied it by itself straight to the nail or a base coat -having to use more coats.
Also, I feel it needs to be said that most glittery polishes are more of a pain in the rear to remove than a normal polish is. So it's not like it's specific to just this polish.
I love this and am thrilled to have two bottles of it.
-Needless to say, I highly recommend it!:D

I hate to be negative but this polish is so not worth the effort for me! It is unique - it's pretty in a way but also weird in a way and it wasn't very shiny until I added a topcoat. I thought the glitter would be a little shinier without it. It chipped the very next day (those big glitter chunks create perfect chipping opportunities if they're too close to the end of the nail.) I agree with the previous review - it was IMPOSSIBLE to remove and totally not worth the effort to me. I used the artificial nail acetone thing from Target and scrubbed, scrubbed, scrubbed. Then I went to a makeup sponge, thinking it wouldn't rip up as much as a cotton pad and that didn't work AT ALL, then I moved on to huge cotton pads and just kept going until most of the glitter was gone (the polish itself was long gone) and then I used a cuticle pusher to essentially chip off the rest of the glitter. YIKES! There was glitter all over my bathroom after I was done. It wasn't as pretty as I thought it was be and it was a total PITA I had to touch it up every morning despite a great top coat. I won't wear it again because it's not worth the effort and it's not very pretty anyway (my opinion only, obviously!) Bummer - I wanted to love it.

This is a Halloween 2009 LE nailpolish from China Glaze. Mine came from Sally Beauty Supply for around $4.49. It is a somewhat sheer black polish w/orange chunky glitter. It takes around 3 coats for it to really become opaque. I rated this low because it chips far too easily, and it is literally IMPOSSIBLE to remove. I literally had to use a cotton pad per finger. I did use a basecoat/topcoat for this, and I got a couple days of wear before the major chippage. How it chips so easily, and is such a pain to remove is beyond me.

This product came by way of an MUA-er all the way to me in Singapore, and it was worth the trouble and shipping charges to get it all the way here. It's a gorgeous black jelly (similar consistency to ChG Lubu Heels) with orange glitter of varying shapes and sizes. It dries well, a bit lumpy, and needs a topcoat, but looks wonderful. A little difficult to remove, but it's worth the trouble.

Halloween essential for me! I bought this after reading a few diff. pages here on MUA. Love this polish...it's true (IMO) that you need to apply a good top-coat...but when you do will last and looks amazing! This is def. my Oct. polish fav.!!!! :)

Overall this is a great polish for Halloween! I was underwhelmed by it on it's own. But with some matte topcoat, I think it just looks like the coolest polish I've ever seen! It wears long and is a pain in the butt to remove because of all the glitter! But I think the multi shaped/sized glitter is what makes this so pretty. If I ever run out, I would definitely look to buy this again. It just captures halloween perfectly imo.
Here is a picture of it both matte and shiny. The left nail is 2 coats of Fortune Teller with 1 coat of Essie MAY on top and the right nail is just 2 coats of Fortune Teller.

.. Black with orange/copper glitter .. TOTAL hotness! I scored this recently at Sally's after seeing raves on the nail board, and this is one I can honestly say in my stash of 700+ polishes, is unlike anything else I've ever seen! ChG polishes never fail to disappoint me, and this is no exception. This looks amazing paired over a matte black, a deep brown or a rich deep red to add some dimension. Sparkles like mad and one coat over any other cream makes for an incredibly interesting, conversation-worthy mani or pedi! Loving the new vampies out this fall!!

Totally unique polish. This is black with orange specks in it, of all different sizes as others have pointed out. With two-three coats it is perfect, and with a top coat it can look amazing.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Beautiful color! As the others mentioned, its a black color with orange glitter (in 3 different shapes/sizes small round, medium round, big hexagons) in it. It is kinda bumpy after applied, but a glossy top coat fixed it up. I really liked this color, but I LOVED it as a matte! I used Esie's Matte about You top coat over it and it looked AMAZING! It looked like shiny new pennies floating in black tar! My only problem with this (and all other glitters) is that its a PITA to remove! Overall, I recc!

What a fabulous nail polish!! This is Halloween in a bottle. The black base is really nice and opaque (I only had to do 2 coats for full coverage) and the different shapes of orange glitter make this look more interesting than if it was just straight boring normal glitter. It is a bit lumpy when it dries since it has so much glitter, but 2 coats of Seche makes it nice and smooth, and also shinier. Rumor is that this is LE, so if you want to try this, go find it quick!

Gorgeous color, black with coppery glitter. Looks like the embers of a dying fire. I kept looking at my nails and thinking, "wow, that is just amazing!" Got some chipping at day 3, but I'm very hard on my nails and almost never get past the three-day mark without some damage. Definitely looks better with the Seche Vite topcoat, deepens the whole effect. Nails look black until you catch the glimmer. This is a color that can definitely be worn throughout the fall season, and longer if you're looking for something goth-glam yet elegant. Intriguing and fun, get a backup since this is surely going to be an LE.

fortune teller is black with a large number of hexagon and round orange glitters of varying sizes. though the base is sheer enough that you can see the glitters, it's pretty opaque in 2 coat [i chose to use 3 however]. the color that you see in the bottle is what you get on your nails, very glittery, reminiscent of hot lava. apparently this is exclusive to sally's beauty supply. it was brought out especially for halloween and it's limited edition. it should be available on october 1. retails for $5.99 regularly, $4.49 with a beauty club card.
application was great, as i've found with most china glazes. the drying time was pretty good, making the whole nail polishing experience less of a pain. you can feel the glitter on the nails, but that can be easily fixed with a top coat. i opted not the wear a top coat because the grittiness doesn't bother me and i only intend to wear it for a weekend. i had it on for 2 days with nailtek foundation II and there was no chipping or tip-wear.
overall, a super gorgeous color. would definitely recommend for nail polish lovers or anyone looking for a great halloween/fall color.
