China Glaze - Mummy May I

Happy Friday everyone!! Quick post today, I'm running late and am positively swamped with homework. Today I have for you guys China Glaze Mummy May I from China Glaze's 2010 Awakening collection. Awakening, in my opinion, was one of the best Halloween collections that China Glaze has done and all three polishes from this collection are fantastic! If you don't have these polishes in your collection and you are a huge fan of Halloween, I definitely suggest hunting them down.

China Glaze Mummy May I is a dark purple jelly with teeny tiny purple square glitter. Vampy colors are absolutely essential for Halloween and this polish definitely fits the bill! The formula was decent, nothing to write home about but no problems to speak of. It was a bit gritty, and next time I will probably use a coat of Gelous before my Seche Vite to smooth out the bumpiness. Overall, I am a huge fan of this polish and it is perfect for Halloween season!

It was a bit difficult to photograph as I didn't have any natural light so I hope I've captured it well enough for you guys. Here's 3 coats of China Glaze Mummy May I. Enjoy!







What do you guys think? Do you own any polishes from this collection?

And of course, don't forget about my Halloween Giveaway Spooktacular! You can tweet and Facebook about it daily to earn more entries!

Thanks for stopping by today! I am a bit behind on comments and I promise to catch up this weekend! Hope everyone has a splendid rest of their day and a fantastic start to their weekend =)
