China Glaze It's Alive

Going through my boxes of polishes, and I grabbed China Glaze It's Alive from the 2010 Halloween Haunting collection.  It's a green glitter in a green base - both microglitter and larger round glitter.  My brush was a bit on the "fluffy" side, not thin and uniform, but more like a kabuki brush.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  Even though this is a bit of a thirsty glitter, it was smooth after just one coat of CND Air Dry.

Here in the sun, you can see how nicely opaque this polish is!  I had a bit of a clean up issue on my pinkie, mostly to unsteady hands.

In the shade, this color really pops!  The different glitters really show up nicely even though it's all green.

Indoors with the flash - not as amazing... looks very mossy green - great Halloween polish but also St. Patrick's Day!  If you can still find this color at a local salon/beauty supply store on sale, snatch it up!
