China Glaze “Howl You Doing

IMG_7558‘Tis the season! I am absolutely OBSESSED with Halloween! I mean, unhealthily obsessed.  I spend every free minute that I have watching horror movies, I change the ringtone of my phone, and I spend all my money on haunted houses.  And I buy waaayyy too many Halloween polishes! This is one of many that is to come from both mainstream nail polish brands and indie brands.

First up, the first of a few of the new China Glaze Monster’s Ball colors!

IMG_7559China Glaze “Howl You Doing” is a deep dark purple jelly base with blue glitters, purple glitters and orange flakes.   As you can see from my swatches, this polish is dark! So dark that I was having a hard time picking up some of the beautiful subtle details of this polish!  I love dark polish and this one is no exception.  I love the combination of glitters and flakes in this one because it makes it more interesting than your traditional dark purple.

IMG_7564I tried to do a macro shot of the bottle so you can see all the different types of glitters that are in this polish! Hopefully you can see the gorgeousness!

IMG_7560The formula on this polish was spot on! This is just 2 coats and its this opaque.  The polish applies like a dream and dries just as quickly.  The only negative I will say is that this polish dries to a semi-matte finish.  I had to do 2 coats of top coat to get the shine that you see in the pictures.  That isn’t a big turn off for me, but may be to some so I figured I would mention it.

And while I love this polish, I think I may have something really similar in my collection already.  So be on the lookout for a comparison post between this polish and Orly “Fowl Play.”

What do you guys think? Did you pick up any polishes from the Monster’s Ball collection?

  1. This is a really pretty polish. I’ve already decorated my house! Weird thing, I used to love horror movies, and now I can’t do them. But I’m still so in love with Halloween, it’s such a silly/fun holiday!
