China Glaze Apocalypse Of Color Halloween 2014

Halloween is fast approaching!

China Glaze recently released their 2014 Halloween collection, creatively called the Apocalypse Of Color collection.  There are 5 polishes and a glow in the dark topcoat, which I believe is a re-release.  Group shot!


First up, the red and green polishes (which seem kinda odd for Halloween, right?) are similar in formula.  Both are creme polishes with black matte glitters.  They look like they should be texture polishes and they kind of dry like it, too.  I did three thin coats of polish, no topcoat.

This is I Love Your Guts:

The matching green polish is But Of Corpse:

Getting To Gnaw You is a brown micro glitter with a blackened base. This polish is base heavy so make sure to wipe off your brush between strokes.  I used a brown creme base because I wanted the glitter to pop.  This is two coats, no topcoat:

Rest In Pieces is a gold glitter topcoat, full of bars and hex.  This is 2-3 smooshed on coats.  It is very base heavy but the result is really pretty. I think this would look great for New Years, too.

Last but not least, my favorite of the collection is Don't Let The Dead Bite, a pink base with red glitters.  It seemed sheer with the first coat, but this is 3 thin coats and it built up really nicely.  I love this one, are you surprised?

Since it is Halloween, and since I am no good at nail art, I decided to add a couple decals to the polishes!  Check them out:



I hope you enjoyed this collection.  I did! I apologize for no GITD pic, I am still learning with those pics..I'll post on one Instgram as soon as I can take one, LOL.

As a whole it is kind of a mish mosh, but all of the polishes lend themselves to other holidays, too. Very versatile!  Which was your favorite?

You still have time to pick these up, head to Sallys nearest you.  On the web, you can find China Glaze:
