china glaze ick-a-bod-y

the name of this polish cracks me up :) it works for a Halloween polish on so many levels. "ick" being the gross factor in all things ooky and kooky during this time of year, "body" as in dead bodies roaming the earth devouring flesh! (sorry i just watched Resident Evil) and it's also a play on the name Ichabod Crane from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. yay for china glaze! bad ass name.
this is the last of this year's ChG Halloween polishes, I got the Awakening set of three (Mummy May I and Zombie Zest) with the Fast Forward topcoat from VNS :D a little note on that topcoat, i really love it like A LOT, it dries super fast on me. but the smell is horrendous, i always got a headache when i used it. and as someone who suffers from chronic headaches, i would rather jump off a cliff than knowingly engage in an activity likely to bring one on! it's too bad, because it's a great topcoat. IF you can stand the smell.
ick-a-bod-y is the polish i was probably least excited about from the three, but honestly i ended up liking it just as much as the others. i was gawking at my nails all day when i wore it. i tend to think orange works well with my skintone and the murky green base, while barely detectable as green, makes it really pop. i like that they did something different, rather than just black and orange. kudos ChG (again haha). this is two coats, photographed in afternoon sunlight.
are you planning any special manis for Halloween?  i think i'm going to rock the candy corn mani everyone has been trying out...we'll see :)


i bought this myself. please see disclosure statement for more information.
