China Glaze: Mummy May I?

 Mummy May I? is part of China Glaze's Halloween 2010 collection. And may I just say, I'm stoked about this color. Don't get me wrong, Zombie Zest and Ick-a-bod-y are great too, but purple is my all time favorite color.


 These swatches are of two coats of the featured polish and two coats of Out the Door top coat.

The purple glitter in this polish is slightly warmer in tone in person.

This polish looks crazy murky in the bottle, so I was slightly worried that it would be the same on my nails. To my surprise the first coat was very plummy purple. The second coat turned it into the perfect blackened plum color shot through with fantastic purple glitter. Pure Love.

This is a better picture of what it looks like in the bottle

I'll tell you what I didn't love so much...

This polish is odd. It's not really gooey, but it's thick. And if you don't get enough on the brush, application can become streaky. And to top it off, I continually felt that I had plenty on my brush when I really didn't. This left me with clumping around my cuticles.

That's ok, I still love you, Mummy May I? ;)

Overall, I love this color. It's subtle but gorgeous, and I want more like it!!
