China Glaze Mummy May I

Mummy May I is from the new China Glaze Awakening Collection for Halloween 2010. We don´t celebrate Halloween in my country but I still love polishes that come in these collection as they are usually dark. I knew I had to have Mummy May I from the first promo pictures I saw. I was a bit scared about the application as I read it was not easy on other blogs. I don´t have any problems with it. I suppose it is good to wait a few minutes between the coats to let them dry. I love the fact that you only need two coats on this one. Mummy May I has a dark purple jelly base with magneta glitter. Once you have two coats the base color turns nearly black. My thoughts about it? I LOVE it!!!

And the removal? I know a lot of you are scared of glitters but if you try the foil method it will be easy :)


  1. I love it! BUT I think (you tell me :)) that most of the time (i mean not in direct sunlight) it just looks mmm dark..
    so the glitter affect and all that is reduced..
    I'm just guessing here since I dont have it.
    what do you think?

  2. Meital: it doesn´t :) these pictures are taken indoors, it is cloudy outside and I had no sun or lamp.

  3. you think that even without the flash it looks this cool?

  4. I have this one too, totally love it, looks great on you!

  5. Meital: the picture is without flash, I never use flash on my pictures :)

    Morgaine: thank you! I love it :)

  6. WOW!!!
    I'll be ordering it soon! :)

  7. wow! can't believe it has no flash and it was taken indoors! sooo nice

  8. I have all three(which I've been meaning to post), this one's my favorite.

    Application on this one with mine was great too(better than the other two colors), it's removal that can be a pain in the backside(HandsDown Ultra pads work well too if someone doesn't want to foil-they don't fall apart).

  9. I la la love this colour!

    I so want to buy this. and I'm so not scared of removing glitter thanks to the foil method mentioned. ;) xx

  10. Love this collection. Too bad it's sold out on some nail e-tailers already!

  11. Wonderful! <3 Why did I think this was black? In all the swatches it looked like a black base filled with fuchsia glitter and thought - I can get that by layering Zoya Roxy over a black jelly. Now I want it... O.o

  12. I want one of beautiful. How can i get one?

  13. Thanks for posting, this is the polish that got me excited after a long time, a real gem, such a special beauty to it. I need it

  14. great photos! i didn't have any trouble w/ the application of it either :) it's so great huh!

  15. I can't get over how perfect your nails are! This colour looks simply amazing on you!

    Sadly, I had application issues with MMI, but perhaps it's because I didn't wait long enough between coats. I will give it a go again and be more patient this time :P

  16. Meital: glad i could help :)

    lelila: I always take my pictures like this :) I think it is the most color accurate.

    Steffi: I knew this would be my favourite too.

    DesingerSpray: I am sure you will love glitter once you try the foil method.

    Sarah B: thanks

    kittypolishnbags: already? Wow, that was fast.

    Blu11: you can still get it. It really is lovely :)

    Sonia: try ebay :)

    Tereza: děkuju! Moc se mi líbí

    hermetic: I agree, it is a gem

    kellie: thank you! Glad you didn´t have problems with the application :) I love it.

    GildedNails: thank you! I am all blushing here, so nice of you. Sad to hear you had application problems. Really try to wait a bit, hope it helps.

  17. This looks amazing! I can't wait to get it for myself.

  18. Looks great on you! :) I'm so jealous of your nails!
