China Glaze Apocalypse Of Color Collection Halloween 2014

China Glaze Apocalypse Of Color Collection Halloween 2014




Are you one of those people who love Halloween? I kind of stopped liking it once I was old enough to stop trick-or-treating. I mean, it’s not like I am a huge fan of the Halloween debauchery–how slutty can women dress isn’t really something I look forward to. Besides, I’m 35 now (it was my birthday yesterday!) which means that I’m old and crusty now. haha Why did I bring up Halloween? Because I have the China Glaze Apocalypse Of Color Collection to share with you today. Unfortunately, I am missing one polish and I didn’t buy the Ghoulish Glow because I’m not interested in the glow in the dark thing. Let me show you the 4 polishes that I piked up.

The collector in me is annoyed that I didn’t get the 5th nail polish which is Getting To Gnaw You. This polish is like a dark brown/near black polish with copper glitter. I didn’t realize that I had missed it when I bought this collection, and then when I did see it, I wasn’t that impressed by it so I passed. Now that I’ve seen some swatches, I wish I had picked it up because it looks interesting. I have to say that the first two polishes: But Of Course and I Love Your Guts are really unique. I know the matte texture can be polarizing, but I think that China Glaze really nailed these polishes because they are soooo Halloween! I can go without the other two, but I think they are a nice addition to the collection.

Yesterday I took Peanut to the mall for a carrousel ride and we also made a quick detour to the Disney store. He instantly gravitated towards Woody.

peanutI was looking at some other stuffed toys and I saw an even bigger version of Woody and I yelled: “Look! A really big Woody!” That comment didn’t seem to go over very well with the adults in the store. Whatever! It’s not my fault that they have dirty minds.

So what do you think about this collection? I think it’s pretty cool, and I like how unexpected some of these polishes are. I think this collection should be out everywhere in October just in time for Halloween. Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers Halloween 2012

I always tend to show Wet N Wild a lot of love because they are an economical brand that always puts out interesting collections. I’m not really a polish snob who thinks that more expensive polishes will always equal better quality so I am usually open to picking up Wet N Wild polishes. Remember the brouhaha that the Saved By The Nail Collection caused? Yikes! I was lucky enough to get my hands on that collection and actually loved every color! This is the first year that I have even been aware of these delightful Halloween polishes so I was very happy when I finally found them. The Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers polishes for Halloween 2012  is made up of 3 glittery shades and one glow in the dark top coat. Here are some swatches of the 3 polishes in the collection.

Nail In The Coffin is a little too subtle for me. In regular light, this just looks like a black polish to me so I had to photograph this in direct sunlight to show the subtle glitter

Rest In Pieces is my favorite polish of the three. The black base is pretty sheer but it does build up nicely and the polish is not a pain to control. The glitter in this polish shows up way better than in Nail In The Coffin so I appreciate that.

Once Upon A Time is a huge glitter bomb that I found quite difficult to work with because it’s hard to control the glitter when the sheer black base is so thin. I found that it was difficult to get even glitter distribution so you definitely see it bunch up in certain areas. I hear that it is a possible dupe of Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers but I can’t confirm that since I don’t own it.

I am a little torn about this collection. While I think they are pretty and I adore the packaging, they definitely don’t wow me. Maybe it’s just my mood so I’ll let you make up your own mind. Let me know what you think of these polishes. I ended up purchasing 3 sets of these and thought that maybe I could put one up as my last giveaway of the month. What do you think?
