China Glaze Mummy May I

The last of the China Glaze Halloween set "Awakening" is Mummy May I.  It's listed as a vampy wine colored, purple base with flecks of hot pink glitter.  In the bottle, it looks more like black with purple glitter, but once you get it on your nail and in the light, you see it correctly.  Unfortunately, I did not get a bottle picture due to taking pictures too late in my day.

In the sun, you can really see the pink glitter - I'm still having issues with my index finger... it's like all colors are a little spotty.  I'm going to try buffing my nails and making sure I wipe with Zoya Remove+ on that nail specifically.  You can have issues with polish sticking when you have too much oil on your nails, so I've heard.

You can see what I mean on my index best in this picture.  This picture was indirect sun and it's almost a jelly like polish here.  It's actually really pretty and it could be really used all year round - not just for Halloween.

Here in the shade, the glitter really pops out to me.  The formula on this was nice for me.  I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Mummy May I, and a top of Seche Vite.  Even though it's a glitter, it wasn't too hard to remove - especially since I just wore Across the Universe the day before.

  5. I'm your new follower. Really like your blog! Maybe you could check out mine sometime:

  6. It's kind of funny how you can see hundreds of pictures of the same polish and not fall in love with it, but just one picture, and that's all it takes. Maybe it was your last picture, maybe your great description (I didn't know ChG described it as a purplish color with pink glitter!), but either way, I know I want this polish now! (Thanks for the lovely photos and post...I'm sure you'll figure out the thing with your index finger, but no worries either way, the polish still looks great on you.)
