China Glaze Apocalypse of Color 2014: Rest in Pieces


UPDATE: I have now also  swatched this over a variety of autumn colours and you can see that post HERE. 
China Glaze Rest in Pieces You may remember this polish from my recent haul post… told you it wouldn’t take long to get these on my nails. I can’t believe how early I managed to get this considering it doesn’t really seem to be around in the blogosphere yet – maybe everyone is waiting till closer to Halloween. ANYWAY, this is the glitter topper from this years China Glaze halloween collection “Apocalypse of Color” and is made up of copper hexs, bars, a mix of matte black hexes (from tiny to large) and holographic small bars and hexes. This bad boy sparkles! I used two medium cots on both my hands over OPI Did You Ear About Van Gogh. I chose this colour cause I wanted to see what the mix looked like clearly and I thought the neutral tone would work well with the mix too.

What you get on your nail is pot luck and I found the best way to apply was to swirl the brush, apply a blob and then spread out the glitter. Really not a problem application and just keeps the glitters from bunching together (as large pieces to like to so).  It also helps in keping the bar glitter from lying in a uniform direction too much and looking like hair… I had no issues with bar glitter sticking out from the nail and one coat of topcoat smoothed everything nicely.

I cannot wait to try this over some more colours – I am thinking dark forresty green or bright firey orange. It really makes me think of bomb fires – with ashes, embers and sparks. I love that the black doesn’t overwhelm the mix – I don’t usually like black glitter because it can seem heavy but I think the sparkles and metallic really balance out the mix.

It would take a lot of layers and dedication to get this opaque on its own – definitely works really well as a mixed topper, but I could also imagine this in an orange jelly sammitch… yum yum yum. I really like the name too – it appeals to my morbid humour. At £3.99 this is a great glitter for a great price and I hope to get a lot of use from it over the autumn/winter season.

    Nice combination together. I like the colors in the glitter, very fall appropriate.

      lol I didn’t know what to expect really when I ordered it having only seen one swatch but it really leapt out at me from the three I ordered so I had to use it first!

    When I first saw a swatch of this I wasn’t bothered but I love how you have layered it over a nudey colour- it’s going on my wish list!
