China Glaze Wicked Collection

Hi everyone! Today I have my very first post of an entire collection, so be prepared for lots of photos! I am a little delayed on this post, as we have already passed Halloween, but I wanted to share it anyway. I wish I had the budget to review and swatch full collections all the time! Props to the girls that do this frequently, it's a lot more work than you would think! Today I have the China Glaze Wicked Collection for Halloween 2012.

This is two coats of Immortal. The first coat of this polish was shear, but it built up nicely with two coats. I don't think it's obvious in these photos, but the fine shimmery flecks in this polish had specks of pink, purple, blue and silver. I liked it more than I thought I would!

This is two coats of Roguish Red. I actually used this polish in one of my Halloween mani's here. I know I mentioned it in that post, but I'll say it again, the application on this polish was wonderful. You could easily get away with one coat. There were no streaks whatsoever. It's a nice red orange. Nothing spectacular with the color, but the application makes it worth the purchase!

This is two coats of Cast A Spell. This is an olive green polish with a golden flecks. Another good formula and it reminds me a bit of China Glaze Smoke and Ashes. I used it here.

This is two coats of Bizarre Blurple. This one had a decent formula, but I needed both coats on here. The color doesn't feel unique to me, but it's still a pretty shimmery blueish purple. I used this one here.


This is one coat of China Glaze Make A Spectacle over Immortal, and over Cast A Spell. I LOVE this glitter! It's packed with shimmer and these glitters that vary in color, it seems as though they show are orange, gold and blue. In the bottle, it looks a lot like China Glaze Snow Globe but on the nail it's nothing like it at all. I will do a comparison post on these two to show the difference.

This is one coat of Glitter Goblin over Roguish Red. I wasn't particularly impressed with this polish, the glitter applied evenly but it just wasn't very exciting to me. It is orange and silver holographic glitter.

This is both Glitter Goblin and Make a Spectacle over Zoya Raven. I like Glitter Goblin a bit better over black than I do over Roguish Red.
Over all I would say my favorites in this collection are Make a Spectacle and Immortal, although with the formula of Roguish Red it's one of my favorites as well. Thanks for reading!


  1. Congrats on your first full collection review! I enjoyed reading it! You made me want Immortal and Make a Spectacle for sure. Looking forward to your comparison post!

    1. Thanks Debby! Isn't it beautiful?? Hope to post the comparison soon!

  2. Lovely swatches! Yeah, Immortal and Make a Spectacle were my favorites from this collection, too. I'm planning on trying Make a Spectacle for some snowfall manis as it gets wintery-er out.


  3. Thank you so much Mz Manicure! I think it will be beautiful for wintery mani's as well!!
