What it do, ghoul-friend? I’m guessing I’m probably not alone in feeling like Halloween’s about a billion light years away right now, but if you’re one of those always-planning-early types (or maybe every day feels like All Hallows’ Eve to you?), peep the three new colors of China Glaze’s upcoming Awakening collection.
Color me a kid from the ’80s, but dayum these colors remind me of Michael Jackson’s Thriller video. I was eight years old the first time I saw it and got zilch sleep for two weeks. Every time I’d close my eyes I’d see MJ’s glistening in the dark.
Zombie Zest, a dark green jelly base packed with green and gold glitter and my favorite color out of the three, looks like a nail polish version of those haunting peepers. Childhood scarring aside, I think it also looks kinda like sparkly baby poo. Both describe the color equally well.
The other two shades, Ick-a-body (a brownish green jelly base with burnt orange glitter) and Mummy May I (a purplish black jelly with purple glitter), are a lot of fun, too, especially if you like monstrous colors.
In each of these pics I’m wearing three coats.

I’m still trying to track down an official release date, but it’s rumored to be rolling onto beauty shelves in September. China Glaze polishes go for about $6, so that would place the Awakening set (which also comes with a bottle of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat) at around $24, give or take. I’ll let you know when I get more info.
In the meantime, what do ya think? Do these shades make you wanna get your Frankenstein freak on, or are they just too out there for you?
