Happy Hands Nail Polish Are You Afraid of the Dark? Collection for Halloween 2013

I think many of you that read this blog grew up in the 90s and probably watched Are You Afraid of the Dark? on Nickelodeon. And even if you didn't grow up in the 90s, it's likely that you're familiar with the show. As I've mentioned before, I'm a total baby when it comes to scary stuff, and this show scared the pants off of me. I distinctly remember being terrorized by one episode, The Tale of the Quicksilver, while I was babysitting one night. The kids were asleep and thought I could handle it, but clearly watching a scary show while you're alone in a strange house is a dumb idea!

Happy Hands Nail Polish has created this delightfully nostalgic collection inspired by the show for Halloween this year. It consists of two jelly glitters, one glitter topper, and one glow in the dark. Submitted for the approval of The Midnight Society, I call this story The Tale of the Pretty Nails...

Laughing In the Dark is inspired by Zeebo the clown. This purple jelly rocks out with red, yellow, noen green, and purple glitters. I used three coats for my swatch. I found the formula of mine to be a little thick, so you may need to add a bit of thinner, layer it, or use a light hand. I love these colors, especially the little bursts of yellow!

These Super Specs will let you see into another dimension! I love the visual mirroring between the round silver lenses of the super specs and the large silver circle glitters in this polish. It also has other silver shapes, iridescent glitters, and shimmers. The formula was easy to work with and the glitter was abundant. Shown over MAC Hyper.

The Midnight Society is a royal blue jelly with small iridescent glitters. It also glows in the dark! I really love this color and the small sparkles are a really lovely complement. Make sure to use a good layer of topcoat to smooth everything out! Three coats.

Here is a photo of its eerie blue glow... muahaha...

The Tale of the Dark Music is a black jelly base with red, purple, and blue glitters! There is a ton of glitter in this polish but the application isn't affected at all, needing three easy coats. The color palette reminds me of berries, which is decidedly less scary than the actual inspiration...

Which polish would you like to wear to the fireside meeting of The Midnight Society?

    I've never watched the show (totally with you on the baby thing, I just can't handle scary things) but I love laughing in the dark (love the colour combo specifically) and midnight society!! Great swatches!! :)

  2. I never watched this show because I'm a giant baby and am willing to admit still a little afraid of the dark, lol. I love Zeebo polish but..... Clowns terrify me so I'd be hesitant to even wear that polish! lol

  3. I loved Are You Afraid of the Dark!!! Is it on Netflix streaming yet? lol!

  4. I'm personally waiting impatiently for Legends of the Hidden Temple... :D

  5. Thank you! I've never understood the appeal of scary stuff..

  6. Thanks! Do you think you'll pick up any? I also purchased Danse Macabre 2.0 today -- love that color combo!

  7. THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN!!! In college a bunch of us bought the t-shirts and did a group Halloween costume - we seriously had all the teams lol. We wore knee pads and made those life medallions. There was even one guy who was the temple guard. I still have that t shirt somewhere lol...

  8. I WAS JUST LOOKING AT THE SHIRTS TODAY! I want one REAL bad haha. Maybe for my birthday! That costume sounds amazing -- though I was always scared sh*tless by the temple guards.

  9. These are great! My favorites are Laughing in the Dark and The Midnight Society. I used to love that show! I'd forgotten about it.

  10. Oh my gosh, that's awesome! I had forgotten about these great shows!

  11. I loooooooved this show!! Omg!! Talk about Throwback Thrudsay lol! The Midnight Society is such a beauty. I love glow in the dark polishes, and ones that aren't just the basic green hue have a special place in my heart.

    Danse macabre looks so sweet too, the clash of red and purple is brilliant. I'd love to just go and buy laughing in the dark but I'm on a low/no buy so unfortunately maybe not anytime soon :( and no problem I love looking at your swatches :)

    You guys... AYAOTD is totally on Amazon Streaming (and I know it's free with Prime membership). They have a ton of old Nick shows, and I *think* that includes Legends of the Hidden Temple. Don't quote me on that. But I mean, I marathoned AYAOTD when I made this collection, and then moved on to Clarissa Explains It All, and All That...

  14. OMG. I looooove these polishes so much and the name/inspiration just is the cherry on top. I wish it wasn't so close to halloween already, I would have bought these weeks ago!
