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:

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
