China Glaze – Don’t Let the Dead Bite

Good afternoon everyone!  Today I have my first “Halloween” mani to share.  I hope to get in a lot of my colors from past Halloween collections this month. 


Here is China Glaze Don’t Let the Dead Bite. This is from the Halloween 2014 Apocalypse of Color collection.  This is a fleshy pink/nude base with red metallic glitter in a few different sizes including bar glitter.  I am not a fan of bar glitter and would usually banish any polish with it to the purge box.  I think my eyes are getting worse, or it’s just the coloring of the polish, but I can’t see the bars on my nails at all, so this one may survive my “No Bar Glitter Allowed” rule. 

This polish had a great formula.  The glitter came out easily and distributed pretty well. There was only the slightest dabbing to cover bald spots.  I used 2 coats of polish over a basecoat of Pro FX Ridge Filling basecoat. This basecoat has a slight pink tint to it, so I think that helped the number of coats I used.  I also used one thick coat of topcoat and it was very smooth.  I can still see the nail line if I hold my fingers up to the light, but that doesn’t bother me.  After a few photos like that, I added a matte topcoat and I really love it better mattified!  You can’t see a big difference in my pictures, but there is a big difference in person.
