Happy Monday, polished friends! Today I have a mainstream Halloween collection to share with you: China Glaze Monsters Ball! This six-piece set includes four glitter polishes, a textured polish, and a re-promote of China Glaze's glow-in-the-dark polish! Let's take a look at these beauties!
First up is China Glaze Fang-tastic. This is purple, blue and pink glitter mix in a clear base. Fun for Halloween and festive for anytime of year, really. This is one coat over China Glaze Def Defying with Out the Door top coat. Application was easy...blob and spread!
China Glaze Bat My Eyes is a black jelly base packed with gold glitters. This makes for a super classy Halloween manicure, but I think this polish will translate nicely into the holiday season as well! While the black base is a bit sheer, it builds up quite nicely. This is two coats, with a third coat in a few places to cover some bald spots, with Out the Door top coat.
China Glaze Boo-gie Down is a super fun glitter top coat that includes matte black and white glitters, as well as metallic gold and bronze glitters in a clear base. Because this isn't just straight black, white and orange, I think this could be awesome for a simple Thanksgiving manicure if you layered it over a nude shade! Here, I've layered 1.5 coats over Liquidus Nail Gloss Arsenic with Out the Door. The glitter pay-off is nice in this, and the big pieces came out of the bottle nicely. Blob and spread, and you'll have no problem applying it. It seems to me that Arsenic is the perfect base for this polish, because the bronze shimmer in it complements Boo-gie Down so well! You can read my review of Arsenic [here] and purchase it [here]!
China Glaze Howl You Doin' is a deep red-plum jelly base with purple and orange glitter throughout. For some reason, when I looked at this, I expected this to be a flakie, but I love that it's filled with hex glitter instead. This is three easy coats with Out the Door, but you could get away with two coats in real life.
Next up, and finally for this post, we have China Glaze Bump In The Night, a textured black polish. Like the other China Glaze Texture polishes, there is no glitter in this. I accented this swatch with a sugar skull (since I couldn't bear to remove it yet!), so I hope you enjoy! This is two easy coats of Bump In The Night!
The last polish in this collection is China Glaze Ghoulish Glow, which seems to show up just about every Halloween in the China Glaze release! I will be using this in some Halloween nail art as the holiday gets closer, but for now, here's a bottle show in my closet (haha)...I'm not a glow-in-the-dark expert, but you get the idea...this baby really glows!
All in all, I am loving this collection. It is fun and vibrant, and while it doesn't scream Halloween specifically to me, I think it's perfect for the spooky month of October and beyond! Monsters Ball polishes are limited edition and available now wherever China Glaze is sold! =)
