You guys are going to help me out with the naming of this one.
Witch Hazel Bohn (2297) is a glow-in-the-dark polish I picked up from SinfulColors’ latest Halloween collection (it may be a re-release from a previous year, though…I can’t quite tell from the code). And I simply do not understand the name. Witch hazel, sure. But Bohn? What’s that? Google has failed me, as well. Is there a pun I’m not getting? Maybe Bohn sounds like bone? But why Bohn?!?!?! Is there someone famous named Hazel Bohn? SinfulColors’ description doesn’t help much, either: “You glow, ghoul! Skull-shaped glitters in a glow in the dark base are drop-dead awesome.”
I MUST KNOW!
Anyway. As usual, this ostensibly glow-in-the-dark nail polish is a greenish-yellow, and leaves that tint on the nail. Now, I haven’t tried too many glow-in-the-dark polishes in my life, but I literally can never get them to work. I don’t know if it’s because I always cheap out and get them from Claire’s or something, but I put on five coats, charge it under bright light for ages, and they never give me so much as a feeble glow.
The black, orange, and purple colors from their core collection are included (Black on Black, Courtney Orange, and Let’s Talk), as well as Glow in the Dark, which is presumably re-released every Halloween.
Eight new shades are:
Cloak and Swagger (Tombstone Matte; deep burgundy with a tombstone texture)
Dead On (Glow in the Dark; skull-shaped glitter topper in a purple glowing base with black microglitter)
Déjà Boo (Glow in the Dark; ghost-shaped glitter topper in a black glowing base)
Got a Bat Attitude (Glow in the Dark; bat-shaped glitter topper in a glow in the dark base)
Hazel Moon (Glow in the Dark; skull-shaped glitter topper in a purple glowing base with black microglitter)
Nice Guise (Chameleon Color; skull-shaped glitter topper in a purple glowing base with black microglitter)
Play Dead (rose gold and bronze metallic)
Where Oh Werewolf (Walgreens Exclusive; tombstone slate grey)
I already snagged Nice Guise (hey, the display was sitting right at the checkout), which, incidentally, looks nothing like Sinful Colors’ pic! The base color of my bottle looks black, not midtone green. The strangest thing is that the model in the promo pic is wearing a St. Patrick’s Day bright green! I guess I’ll see how Nice Guise looks when I swatch it…maybe Canada got a different version?
I’m tempted to go back for Play Dead, if they have it, because rose gold. Well, if it even looks rose gold in person! There may have been a reason I didn’t pick it up…
Have fun getting ready for Halloween!

Here’s Claire’s Glow in the Dark. I was hoping that since it is sheer (with glitter!) it could be layered over any colour, thereby transforming it into a glow-in-the-dark polish. Unfortunately, even with five coats, this polish is not quite functional on the nail. The bottle glows, though…guess I need 10 coats or more. Anyway, save your money! I’m sure there must be other GITD polishes out there that work.
And, lastly, one of my favourite greens of all time, which is really an olive/amethyst duochrome, is Rimmel’s Zeitgeist:
