Mummy, May I Konad?

  I have been dying for the CG Awakenings collection ever since I first saw them.  A couple of days ago, Dan brought me home two polishes from the collection, Ick-A-Body and Mummy May I?  He is so sweet to get me some pretty polish, especially when I am home sick!  :)

Outdoors, partial shade
    For these nails, I used three coats of China Glaze Mummy May I? followed by two coats of Seche Vite top coat.  Although I was loving the color by itself, I wanted to go ahead and play with some Konad as well, so I used Konad Special White with plate m64.  I do not currently have any Halloween plates, but this one still kind of reminded me of a spider web, so I went with it!  Maybe it is about time to order those BM plates... :)

In full sun
  The polish is a very dark purple/wine color, with loads of pink glitter.  It is really pretty!  I have noticed several comments on this being bumpy even after top coat, and I will admit, that after two coats of Seche Vite it was still just a tad bumpy.  However, I personally did not find it to be distracting or annoying at all, since it is not that bad and the polish is definitely pretty enough to make up for it!

Outdoors, shade
  Overall a very fun, pretty, vampy color!  I am loving it as a Halloween polish as well as just a fall polish in general!
