China Glaze Halloween 2011 Haunting Collection: It's Alive

Yay! There was sun!
So this is just in time for Halloween!

The one that I really wanted from the Haunting collection:
It's Alive

3 coats + 2 coats of my combined TC

Yeah. This one eats TC.
Even at 2 coats of TC,
it was still feeling a tab bumpy

I would recommend wrapping the tips too with your TC.
Otherwise the edges of your nails could feel a little sharp from those glitters.

The first time I wore this,
I didn't realise and ended up scratching myself.

And yeah.
I love this one so much,
I've already worn it twice.

Gorgeous swamp green glitter.
This one is seriously jam-packed with glitter.
Super sparkly.

Straight into my Top 10.

It's Alive is definitely my favourite from this year's Halloween offerings.
I'll love to hear about yours though.

In case I miss out on another awesome polish!

Last 2 are indoor pictures.

What's your favourite from this year's Halloween offerings?
and Happy Halloween folks!
Have a blast at those parties!

China Glaze Halloween 2011 Haunting Collection: Haunting

Squeezing in the last Halloween collection for October.

China Glaze's offering for this year's Halloween:

3 coats + 1 coat TC.

Silver glitter in black base.
Nothing particularly spectacular about it.
In fact, after organising my stash,
I think I may have dupes in Jessica Black Ice,
as well as Essence Moonlight Collection: Into the Night.

I'll get the comparison done one day k

Haunting is a little on the thick side.
Nothing too terrible that you can't work with it though.

But I will definitely have to see which of the 3 I will want to keep.
Particularly since this colour doesn't really excite me.
It's kinda normal.

And I only got the glitters from their Halloween collection this year round.
The others didn't call out to me.
But the other one, It's Alive.
Hopefully there's sun today,
so I can show you how gorgeous it is!

Last picture is the in-the-cab shot.

Color Club Sexy Siren over Essie Starry Starry Night

Ok, the weather hasn't been the best over here in Singapore recently.
So I haven't been able to get as much pictures as I would have liked.
Today's post is one that I had intended to archive for later,
but is now dragging out because I'm still waiting for the sun.

Layered Color Club Sexy Siren over the earlier Essie Starry Starry Night mani

1 coat of Sexy Siren over 4 coats of Essie SSN + TC

I find this combo really stunning and awesome.
Took tons of photos
So I will just let them do the work here

Last 5 pictures are indoor ones.

I had originally thought of purging CC Sexy Siren.
No way I'm doing that now =)

SpaRitual In Pink Collection: Clarity

The second one in the In Pink Collection:

2 coats + 1 coat mixed TC

Rose pink glitter in clear base.
It really is more of a layering polish

Last 3 pictures are indoor ones.

For CT:
“As you simplify your life,
the laws of the universe will be simpler;
solitude will not be solitude,
poverty will not be poverty,
nor weakness weakness.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
