Once again, it's the unofficial Mani Mondays, and we'll see how well I do this time around. Once again since it's fabulous October, you can't get away without enjoying another Halloween collection. China Glaze has their new Halloween collection, and it's called Monsters Ball. There are some fun colors available, and I picked up two of them in Bat My Eyes and Howl You Doin'. Check out Part 2 here.

I personally found these at Ulta, but they should be available wherever China Glaze is sold. The other polishes in the collection are shown above (sorry for the fuzzy pic- it's from my phone camera). There are two other glitter polishes, a black (sand) textured polish, and a glow in the dark formula. The two I was interested are below.
Howl You Doin' is a gorgeous dark red based purple with lighter purple micro-glitter and red/gold tinted flakies. It's a vampy polish with a hint of sparkle. This polish is very similar to Orly Fowl Play, so if you own that, you may want to skip this. On the flip side, it seems that the Orly polish is part of the permanent display (at least at Sally's Beauty Supply, even though it was released as a part of fall collection 2 years ago), so you can check there if you can't find Howl You Doin'. Lasting power of this polish, was average at 4-5 days.
Following swatches are two coats with top coat for each of the polishes. Howl You Doin' is up first.
This natural light picture best shows the bronze bar glitter. As a whole there are a very limited amount of bar glitters, but just enough to add a warmer sparkle to the nails.
