China Glaze Haunting
2 coats. Formula was good. It went on slightly sheerer than expected with the first coat, but then I realized it was a black polish and everything was opaque after coat 2. You can feel some texture (it is glitter after all), but it's not top coat hungry, so one coat of a thicker top coat should suffice.
Haunting was released this past Halloween. It's similar to Orly Goth in that it's black with silver glitter, but the glitter is more dense in Haunting.
Honestly, I don't really care for this. It doesn't wow me. I've been noticing that I'm not really digging blackened colors in general. I have Nicole by OPI I'm a Pool for Love on my toes and I don't like that one either. I'm sure there are probably some exceptions in my collection somewhere, but I usually like my polish to be bright and in your face - not to say I don't like darker colors, but I don't want to have to explain to someone "Oh this is red, it's just so dark that it looks black all the time..." because if I want to wear black polish, I will. If I want red, I want RED... Ok, this turned into kind of a crazy rant. Simply put, I'm going to purge Haunting.
I did a funky french a few days later to cover tipwear...yeah. Doesn't look so hot. I used China Glaze Millennium for the tips. And I freehanded them. Good in theory, but I think I painted the tips on a little too thick.
