China Glaze - Awakening, Halloween 2010

For their Halloween Collection this year China Glaze really stepped it up and gave us something unique. Instead of the typical, uninspired set of orange, black and white creme that comes in every Halloween set released by every nail polish company, they gave us a collection that is... well... frikkin' AMAZING. If you are on a "no-buy" stop now because I am telling you up front, that every one of these is a must have.

Zombie Zest - This is a very dirty, murky, olive green with a bright green, glass-flecked shimmer. It makes me think of Zombies coming out of a swamp. This is three coats. It is a bit on the thin side but it's nice because it lets all that glass-fleck to shine through.

Mummy May I? - *Love the name* Wow do I appreciate everything about this polish. The base is a dark, jelly-ish, plummy, raisin. Then there is pinkish, purple glitter thrown in. It is a great effect because the glitter is not overpowering so you can love the twinkles of purple glitter and the vampy base. This swatch is two coats with top coat.

Ick-A-Bod-Y - I love this name too! And I love an orange and I love glitter so there is no way I could say anything bad about this. In fact, I have more good to say: The base is an awesome, weird, blackened green and also, this is a glitter-packed polish. This is only two coats and it is pretty much full coverage. Wow. I really want to wear this for a week. Or until Halloween.

These are going to be available at Sally's and on e-tailers so keep watch and don't miss them! There is no reason to wait. They will go quick and you don't want to miss these.
