Face-Off: KBShimmer You Go Ghoul! vs. China Glaze Howl You Doin’

I've swatched China Glaze Howl You Doin' multiple times now, and it's just one of those polishes that, at least in concept, I keep wanting to come back to. The main issue with this polish is that the formula and execution was never my favorite, and it's gotten extremely clumpy with age in a way... Continue Reading →

KBShimmer Here for the Boos & Maniology Phantom
