China Glaze Haunting collection swatches (Halloween 2011)

I have accumulated an insane amount of polishes lately. So much that I have not been posting my hauls up lest you think I'm crazy. Well since Halloween is approaching, I thought I'd post this collection from China Glaze for Halloween 2011. The only one I did not manage to get is the Ghoulish Glow which is a glow-in-the-dark topcoat.

  • Haunting – Shadowy black with shimmering silver glitter
  • Near Dark – Rich mossy green crème
  • Crimson – Deep purple crème with a hint of blood red
  • It’s Alive – Vibrant green glitter

All polishes applied nicely and were opaque in 2 coats. It's Alive is amazing. It is not sheer and there was no need for a base coat. It is my favourite out of this lot, followed by the other glitter polish Haunting.
