Hello lovelies & happy Sunday!
This is my first Swatch Sunday in a while — this month has been a bit crazy, & I let my swatches get away from me in favour of other nails. But I’m back, & I’m ready to share a fun Halloween polish from a few years ago — China Glaze Bat My Eyes from the 2013 Monster’s Ball collection.
This shade has been in my stash a very, very long time (I do believe my Mum gifted me if for my birthday in 2013) & I don’t think I’ve actually wore this polish more than once. So I was happy to break it out for today’s post!
1 coat over China Glaze Glamcore + top coat
I made the decision to too Bat My Eyes over a dark base to avoid a lot of coats of polish. The base is darkened, but I feel like I remember needing a few coats of polish last time I wore it, & I wasn’t really feeling this.
For one coat, though, the glitter is very densely distributed. You have multi-sized bronze-y hex glitters, with the occasional bar glitter.
You can really, really see all the different sizes of glitters in my macro shot, including the bar glitters.
I also really love the combination of the gold with the dark — it is a very nice Halloween-y type shades. But China Glaze has always done amazing Halloween shades, & I love this one held up all these years (my bottle of Howl You Doing? from the same collection sadly did not fair as well.)
What do you think about this Halloween shade? Would you wear Bat My Eyes for your next October manicure? What is your favourite Halloween polish? Let me know in the comments below!
