China Glaze – Paper Chasing

Wednesday, 14 July, 2010

This is a lovely green shimmer and it went on completely opaque for me – two thin coats were needed and the drying time was a breeeeze! To me, this is almost a kelly green, don’t you think?

Part of the 2009 summer collection called Kicks (I have Custom Kicks somewhere here…either in CA or AZ), I only purchased 2 colors because I’m not a neon fan and I felt this wasn’t worth the effort for me to swatch…sorry for the neon lovers out there.

It’s a fun summer color, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, it’s not a color for me.

China Glaze – DV8 and GR8

Monday, 12 July, 2010

I swear I had posted my swatch of DV8, but I was wrong! I had even put it in my Uploaded pics folder. Very odd. I finally found GR8 and was able to swatch it.

I love the China Glaze Holographics. How can anyone not like them? 😀

See below!

Even without the flash, this color was throwing holographics everywhere. I didn’t know what to do. I finally decided to tame the beast with a single flash setting. It’s a gorgeous teal, isn’t it? It was a nice cool color against my skin tone.

Love how the sun really brought this into play. In the shade it was this deceptive little color was pretending to be a tame gold nail polish. Out in the sun, I swear it was one of my favorite gemstones (lemon quartz) gone wild! It’s a bit warmer in the undertones than I expected and it clashed terribly with my skin, but … how can you deny how gorgeous it looks?!

China Glaze – Channelesque

Thursday, 20 May, 2010

I found this in a clearance bin for $1.50. Had I known how truly and deeply I’d fall for this color, I’d have purchased all of them. Yea, I get kind of like that. I know that Channelesque has been discussed many a time, but I love how it looks on me.

China Glaze – Sour Apple and Electric Lilac

Thursday, 1 April, 2010

Surprise~ April Fool! Only fool here was me thinking these colors would rock it on my nail. Only saving grace for these? They dried quickly.

Yea. Hm. With a name like Electric Lilac, I expect you to be electric. And lilac. I wouldn’t quite call this lilac. I would venture to call this a light purple. Glitter was ok on it, but this wasn’t worth the few dollars I shelled out for it. Maybe I didn’t shake it enough. Nah, I know I did. This was the color at 3 coats. I wasn’t in the mood to go for 4.

When I put this on, I kept thinking, “Wow…delayed St. Patrick’s Day for me.” Flecks of green and gold glitter suspended in a not quite neon green jelly base. I think I’m getting too old and fussy for certain types of glitter. I can accept that. This didn’t wow me.
