China Glaze Apocalypse of Color | Halloween 2014



While I know I'm a few days late in posting this Halloween Collection, please know that I tried getting in done while on vacation.  Unfortunately, I was having only sporadic wifi and my boyfriend's computer was on the fritz.  In order to show the collection in all it's glory, I unfortunately had to wait until I landed and was back at my own computer in the comforts of my own wifi to show you all.  So my apologies and I hope you enjoy!

Don't Let the Dead Bite
Nicole from Young, Wild, and Polished described Don't Let the Dead Bite as looking "scabby" and to be honest, until she mentioned that, I would've just thought microbial and bloody.  The scab angle gives his baby pink jelly flushed with deeper pink shard-ish (not quite as rough around the edges as shards but not exactly hexish) a true Halloween feel.  Applies super easily in two coats.

I Love Your Guts
I didn't expect to like I Love Your Guts but oddly I really did.  A medium pink matte, it's textured with little black dots that make me think of ants.  Kinda gross but works with the theme.  Two coats here.

But of Corpse
But of Corpse is the same polish as I Love Your Guts but with a semi-metallic, ogre green matte base.  Same easy formula and same buggy texture.

Rest in Pieces
I'm not a fan of bar glitter so the gold and copper sticks floating around this gold and black glitter topper just make me think of skeletal hair.  Over a cream colored base, you can see that some of the glitter is rather holographic so that will definitely get some people very excited over this polish.  Dabbing is a definite must with Rest in Pieces to be prepared for that.

Getting to Gnaw You
And to my favorite of the collection.  Getting to Gnaw You is comprised of copper microglitter pieces in a rich chocolate jelly.  The application and removal are not the easiest however; putting it on, I recommend very thin coats so as not to absolutely pool your cuticles (as I did on my first go).  Removal just needs a bit of elbow grease since the pretty glitter just sticks to your fingernail like glue.  Three coats here to cover up some bald spots.

Ghoulish Glow
While the bottle is absolutely alight, Ghoulish Glow doesn't exactly do the same on the nail.  This was the best shot I could get in a dark room.  I may very well be photographing glow in the dark polishes wrong so if anyone has any tips, please let me know in the comments below.
