China Glaze Fortune Teller Swatches and Review

Good Wednesday morning everyone!

Today I am showing you possibly the most perfect Halloween polish ever. It’s by China Glaze, and it’s called Fortune Teller. This is a Sally’s exclusive, and if you don’t have it already you must try to find it, it’s amazing!

The formula is really excellent on this, its thick and chunky, but also very opaque. You will only need two coats. It does tend to be rough feeling because of all the glitter, but a good thick top coat will help with that. Peep it out!

Fortune Teller is a black jelly base filled with orange glitter. The glitter is both small & round AND small, medium & large hexagon shaped.  I love it, it’s quite simply perfect. As I mentioned I only needed two coats and it’s just fabulous.

I probably won’t wear polish on Halloween night as it doesn’t really go with my costume, but I might wear it the rest of Halloween weekend! Oh and in case you were wondering just what I am going to be, the plan is Anne Boleyn. I am pretty sure she didn’t wear polish, sadly. Oh and don’t worry, I will be posting pics :)

    I love this and can’t wait to get it! I have been checking all the Sally’s in my area and I don’t think they will have it until tomorrow, October 1. I already have the Spellbound polish and it is great too. It’s like a party on your nails!

      Hi AllYouDesire,

      Oh no booooo! Sorry :(

    Screw the historical accuracy — I vote for wearing polish with your costume anyway! And while you’re at it throw in some false lashes. You know the good ol’ Annie B. would totally go there if she had these modern beauty marvels at her fingertips (pardon the pun).

      Hi Karen,

      Well someone on Twitter did say that she may have had black fingernails at one point…after she had her head chopped off LOL!

    So many people have said they’ve gotten their Sally’s to sell them this out of the back room but I haven’t had any luck yet! I NEED this … and the Matte Magic also, after seeing Scrangie’s swatches, which takes this from awesome glitter-bling to amazing in a whole different way.

    I’m so stalking my Sally’s

    I found this and I’ve been wearing it for about a week with Orly matte over it and I’m in love! I’m going to get another bottle as a back up because I have a feeling I will be wearing this so much.

    You are so right. Fortune Teller IS Halloween.

    This is just a gorgeous polish. It was sold out online. I don’t have a Sally’s that close by so I shop online. Maybe someday they’ll have it. I just don’t think Anne Boleyn was wearing that polish! Looks gorgeous on you.

    OMG! Someone who has nails the same length as me! If you couldn’t tell, this is my first time visiting your site…when I saw your nails, I got so happy lol

    Anyway, I got FT a few days ago and I love it! Its so amazing 😀

    I think this is so gorgeous, but I’m not sure if I can talk myself into getting a polish just for Halloween, and I can’t see wearing it for other occasions. It’s silly because I have so many polishes that I’m only going to wear for a few days during the year, but to have one that I can’t wear at any other time at all . . . Maybe I’ll stick to the fabulous new glitters China Glaze is releasing.

    Yep, I just bought the Fortune Teller last night along with the Matte Magic topcoat. My Sally had just put it out yesterday… : ) (By the way, I stalked them too!)
