I peeped into my local Sally's yesterday in hopes to find the new China Glaze Haunting Collection and much to my excitement, they had both sets and individual polishes. I was a bit disappointed when I noticed that "It's Alive" was not being sold individually and that it was only available in a 4-piece set.
I have to admit that I purchased this set only because of "It's Alive". When I first received the PR info, It's Alive immediately caught my attention and I knew I had to have it
. Anyway, long story short, I wanted It's Alive and I have It's Alive! ;) Here are a few photos.
2 Coats - No TC
I LOVE this polish! It's a murky, greenish jelly base infused with both green mirco and hex glitters. I don't have anything quite like this shade , so I'm glad to add it to my collection.
It's perfectly opaque in 2 coats, but can pass as a subtle 1 coater, depending how generous you apply.
The only downside, G-R-I-T-T-Y! I highly recommend a thick topcoat to help create a smooth finish. Other than that, it's a beauty. When I look at my nails, for some reason, the first thing I think of is, money! It looks like money at your fingertips! ;)
The orange shade above will be swatched next, so stay tuned! :)
As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!
