I have to say, I'm extremely pleased with the China Glaze Awakening set. I love the colors and the glitter! I like that it's not the classic orange creme. It's fun and exciting and eye-catching for sure!
Overall, application was easy. With glitter, it's sometimes hard to get it on evenly and looking well distributed. This wasn't as hard as I've dealt with in the past, but it wasn't perfect either. Zombie Zest had fine glitter and the other two are chunky and lumpy. You'd definitely need a top coat. And if you don't like VNL, you'll need a base with Zombie Zest.
