China Glaze Awakening (Halloween)

Last year, I thought that China Glaze outdid itself with Fortune Teller for its 2009 Halloween Set, but just LOOK at this 3 piece "gorgeous and ghoulish glitters" coming out in September!  The purple is "Mummy May I" and it's a vampy wine colored purple base with flecks of hot pink glitter.  The green is "Zombie Zest" and it's a mossy green shade with gold flecks of microglitter.  Finally that orange is "Ick-A-Body" and it's actually a dark green base (!) with orange glitter.  The orange glitter literally takes OVER that dark green.  Included in this set is a bottle of Fast Forward Top Coat.

China Glaze's Facebook Fan Page and their Twitter Page [Twitter Page] includes swatches of all three.  

Now here's the slight kicker.

The colors will be available individually starting in September but this actually 4 piece box set will be only available for professionals (you know, people with cosmetology licenses).  

Update!  I got the 411 on this from China Glaze.  Starting in September, you will be able to buy these 3 colors individually at Sally's Beauty Supply.  This actual 4 piece named "Awakening" with the Fast Forward Top Coat, will be available through other professional retailers (beauty stores), and possibly online too (Head 2 Toe Beauty, 8ty8, etc).  Got it?

However, knowing China Glaze, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if they gave a couple away in either their weekly Friday Twitter giveaways, or just as a special treat.  Twitter is seriously THE PLACE to be for companies, and China Glaze has worked it well.

UPDATE 2.0: Please enjoy the following official release
