"Gravedigger" from Girly Bits: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The nail polish was provided for review.
"Gravedigger"($11.50 for 15mL) is a new shade from Girly Bits' Fall 2013 Collection. This polish is inspired by the TV show "Bones". It is described as a "squishy purple leaning black jelly with lots of bright Hallowe'en inspired coloured glitter in orange, fuchsia, purple, green hexes and squares, fuchsia dots, and purple iridescents"; in another word, it's loaded with fun! To see some swatches and my review of the formula, click......

I applied one coat of "Gravedigger" over a black creme base color. The consistency was perfect, not too gloopy and not too runny. The application of the glitter was very smooth, I didn't have to work too hard to ensure an even distribution of the glitter. The polish dried to a rubbery/latex finish so I topped it with a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.
As you can see, this polish is fairly subdued, you definitely notice the glitters but they don't jump out at you. A few of the hexagons are, however, very holographic and I love the tiny fuchsia discs! 
Overall, "Gravedigger" is an amazing glitter for Halloween or just any time of the year. What do you guys think?
