Sonoma Nail Art Halloween Collection

Aw hell yeah, more Halloween polish today! This collection comes from Michelle at Sonoma Nail Art. You may have seen some of my swatches on the Sonoma Nail Art Facebook page already! Michelle is a good friend of mine and she saw fit to make me her brand's swatcher. It's a great honor and I am very lucky, indeed!

Anyway, I've been swatching for her all this time but haven't made a post here with swatches yet for you guys! Bad Sarah! I'm attempting to fix my mistake by posting this collection today. :)

How freaking cute are these punched drip labels?!

Deadly Zins is a mix of reds, plums, and blacks. Michelle's polishes take inspiration from Sonoma County,  California, and this one is inspired by the Zinfandel wine they make there! This shows one coat over black and OPI Danke-shiny Red. The glitters in this polish are so rich and beautiful.

Michelle sent over this cute spider for me to use in these swatches -- how fun is that?




Halloween In the Vines is a purple, grey, and black glitter polish. It is named for the annual "Halloween and Vine" art show that takes place in Petaluma every year. This shows one coat over black and OPI Suzi and the 7 Dusseldorfs.




Here Lies Robert is a green, grey, and black glitter polish named after Robert Ripley from Ripley's Believe It Or Not, who was born and buried in Santa Rosa, CA. This one was one of my surprise favorites. It's very Halloweeny but could absolutely be worn year round. I've shown one coat over black and China Glaze Westside Warrior.




Sincerest Pumpkin Patch is a green and orange glitter inspired by the animated Halloween special, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The story was created by Charles Schulz, who lived in Sonoma County. This polish has a green tinted base, which you can see in the swatch of it over black. The other nails show it over China Glaze Gaga For Green. I love this polish so much. As I was swatching it, I imagined that I was a bird or something, flying over a pumpkin patch and looking down at all the tiny orange pumpkins below. Yeah, I got really into this one.



I've also got some bottle macros here...



I think Michelle is a very talented indie maker, and I'm not saying that just because we're friends! She puts so much thought into her inspirations, her polishes, her labels, everything! That kind of effort really shows and makes for a great consumer experience.

Sonoma Nail Art polishes are sold on Etsy, but they sell out very fast! To stay ahead of the curve, keep up with SNA on Facebook to be prepared for restock dates and times. The next one is this Thursday at 4pm PST (7pm EST).

The products in this post were sent to me by the manufacturer.
