China Glaze Near Dark w/ It's Alive on top!

I am feeing better today! Thanks to all my lovely FB, Blogger and real life friends that gave me support and love! I am back today with 2 of the polishes from China Glazes 2011 Halloween Collection~Haunting. I used Near Dark first. ND is a jellyish forest green...the first coat was a streaky mess and I usually get serious anxiety from this kind of polish. The second coat went on much smoother, I could have used 3 full coats but I decided instead to just touch up the edges where the polish had not become fully opaque yet. I ended up really LOVING the end result! ND was deep and glossy and just lovely and despite the somewhat minor application issues, I can see myself using this one on it's own again! I added 1 coat of It's Alive, a swampy green  glitter with micro and hex glitter. IA has a base similar in color to Near Dark as well! I love the look of these two layered, it is such an appropriate combo for Halloween! enjoy! xoxoxo~Rach
