NOTD - China Glaze Mummy May I

Today my latest order from Enchantra came in, the entire Awakening collection from China Glaze.
This is their Limited Edition Halloween 2010 collection, and as soon as I heard Enchantra had it in stock, I just had to order! I love Halloween, even though it isn't really a big thing here in Holland. More and more stores are picking up on Halloween though, so perhaps in the future it will be a proper holiday here. I certainly hope so!
I decided to try Mummy May I on my nails first:

This is blackish purple base with purple glitter in it. It's a bit on the thick side, too, so not the easiest nail polish to apply, at least not compared to some other polishes.
Above pic is rather crap (sorry, my handphotography skills suck today), so here's a close-up of my ring finger:

This is three coats, with the new Fast Forward Top Coat on top. The topcoat smells a bit funny, but it does do what it says so far. It dries quickly and gives Mummy May I a really nice glossy finish.
My pics don't do it justice though. The glitter is far more obvious in person. I don't know whats up with my photography skills this week, I can't seem to get my nail shots right, bah!
They somehow also get less sharp and less colour-intense when I upload them, don't know what's up with that either.

For those interested, I also made a pic of the entire package:

The other colours in the collection are Zombie Zest (green) and Ick-A-Bod-Y (orange).
Don't you just love those names?
And if anyone knows how to solve my pic-problem, please help! :)
Never had these problems on my other sites, could it be a blogger-thing?


  1. It is! Too bad my pics are on the crappy side today :(
    I can't stop looking at my nails atm :)

  2. Love it, is already on my wishlist :)

  3. Yay Jasmine! You could finally follow me! :)
    Thanks :D
    I'm going to try Zombie Zest today, will post a NOTD article later!

  4. Geweldige kleur! Deze ga ik ook nog eens bestellen
