China Glaze Apocalypse of Colour Collection

{Press Sample}

China Glaze sent me the Apocalypse of Colour collection which is a fun and festive collection of hilariously named polishes!

China-Glaze-Apocalypse-of-Colour

The collection consists of 6 polishes. Five are new and one, Ghoulish Glow, is released every year! Let’s take a look at each one of these individually!

China Glaze Getting to Gnaw You

And here we start with the hilarious, punny names. Getting to Gnaw you is a black jelly with brownish gold glitters. This is two easy coats! I love the depth that the glitter + jelly combination creates.

China Glaze Rest in Pieces

Here I have two coats of Rest in Pieces over two coats of China Glaze Riveting (which is from the 2012 Hunger Games Collection). This glitter is in a clear base and has gold bars, gold hexes, black hexes and more! I think it’s a great combo for Halloween but you could also pair it with a different base and wear it any time of year! There is a lot of base compared to glitter but I think enough comes out to look awesome. For these photos, I did not fish at all. I could have fished for more glitter coverage, but I like it in its natural state.

China Glaze I Love Your Guts

This one is one of the major winners of the collection. This is two coats without a top coat. I love the interesting matte/kinda texture finish it has on its own. It’s super unique and looks very cool in person.

Here is I Love Your Guts with a glossy top coat. Still striking! I think the gloss makes it look girlier somehow. I love it both ways!

China Glaze But of Corpse

Another winner! It is perfectly named. If you’re going as a zombie for Halloween, this is the polish for you! Just like I Love Your Guts, this has a great, interesting matte texture it its natural state.

And here is But of Corpse with a glossy top coat. Somehow it brings out some mystery shimmers!

China Glaze Don’t Let the Dead Bite

Don’t Let the Dead Bite is blood spatters in a bottle! It is a pink milky base with dark pink/red glitters. Looks like blood splatters on the nails! It’s a really cool effect! Later this weekend, I might swatch it over white. Just to see what happens. Because I’m crazy like that.

China Glaze Ghoulish Glow

Ghoulish Glow is a classic glow in the dark color. It needs to be put over another color so I picked China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. It adds a little bit of a milky effect to the polish.

My camera did not want to focus on the glowing! LOL! It was so confused!! Look at how bright that is!

I saw this collection in Sally Beauty last weekend so it’s been spotted in the wild! If you can’t get them all, I think But of Corpse and I Love Your Guts are the must-haves. I’ve never seen anything quite like them. Plus, it’s like two polishes in one since it looks so different with and without a top coat! What do YOU think of this collection?
