China Glaze - Apocalypse of Color Collection

Happy Halloween! I was really cutting it close with this one but here is the last of the Halloween polishes that I have in my to swatch pile; the China Glaze Apocalypse of Color Collection.

Don't Let the Dead Bite:

I Love Your Guts:

But Of Corpse:

Getting To Gnaw You:

Rest In Pieces & Ghoulish Glow:

Isn't that a fun collection for Halloween? I really like how unique the first three shades are and I am loving Rest in Pieces glitter and I'm not even a huge bar glitter topper fan!

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween today; and just for fun here's a throwback picture to me in one of my favorite Halloween costumes.
