How has everyone been over these past few days? I felt kind of worn out after completing the 31 Day Challenge, so I took a few more days off than I had intended to. I caught up on some reading, watched some shows that I had recorded on the DVR and did some much needed housework.
But now it's time to jump right back into the swing of things and I'll be starting that by showing you the new Halloween collection by China Glaze!
Keep reading for swatches and the full review!
Bizarre Blurple is a rich violet with blue shimmer. It doesn't seem super unique to me, but it's still rather pretty. The formula was good and my swatch shows two coats.
Cast a Spell is an amazing blackened olive base with heavy green and gold shimmer. This is like a cracked out version of China Glaze Wagon Trail! I'll have to do a comparison for you at a later date. The formula was excellent and my swatch is two coats.
Glitter Goblin is a clear base packed with small-sized pieces of rusty orange, silver and holographic glitter. Here I've shown one coat over China Glaze Roguish Red. I thought I would like this shade much more than I actually do. To me, it just looks so much better in the bottle. I don't know, maybe it's the layering combination I chose. I really want to love it, I just don't. It is a unique addition to my collection though, so I'm happy about that.
Immortal is a cool grey with fuchsia, blue and silver shimmer. The shimmer in this one is really pretty and makes it unique in my collection. The formula was ok, but it was sort of thick and it didn't want to spread evenly. In my opinion, the colour is worth the slight hassle caused by the formula, though.
Make a Spectacle is a clear base with beautiful iridescent glitters mixed throughout. This is like China Glaze Snowglobe but 100x better! Snowglobe has a slight yellowish tint to it that I've never liked, but this doesn't have that at all. I've shown it here layered over Immortal, but I know that this will look great over many other colours as well.
Roguish Red is a orange-red creme. I find this to be more orange than red, but obviously the name implies that it's meant to be a red. It's not the most unique colour, but the formula was excellent, so that's a plus. My swatch shows two coats.
Overall, I'm quite pleased with this collection. There's a variety of colours and finishes, so everyone should be able to find something they like. My favourites are definitely Cast a Spell, Immortal and Make a Spectacle.
The China Glaze Wicked Collection is available now, so check your local beauty supply shops. The shades are all available individually, but there's also a four piece set that includes Bizarre Blurple, Glitter Goblin, Roguish Red as well as Ghoulish Glow (China Glaze's glow-in-the-dark topcoat).
Check back tomorrow for some halloween nail art with one of the shades from this collection!
