Here’s some neon goodness to kick off the weekend 🙂 This is Point Me To The Party from the Electric Nights Collection by China Glaze:I used a sponge to dab the glitter on my nails and topped it with top coat. A real party on the nails, right?! Find this, along with the other shades of this collection, at Hypnotic Polish 😉
Every day it becomes more clear that I have too many untried polishes than I have nails to paint… First world problems, I know :p
So here’s one from last years Halloween Collection by China Glaze:Don’t Let The Dead Bite is a polish that I think you either love or hate. You all know by know that I love odd colors and glitter combinations. And although I’m not the biggest fan of glitter bombs, the high ‘odd-factor’ made me need to have it. It’s a sheer pink-isch nude base packed with multi sized red hex glitter. The formula is very thin (cuticle overflow warning!). I used three coats plus top coat here. Love or hate?
I’m back with another odd polish! For last years Halloween China Glaze came out with with I Love Your Guts, along with many other polishes. First of all, that name! Gotta love it. Take a look:Weird, right? Agreed. That’s why I needed to have it. And it’s pink! Yay! So this dries to a somehow semi matte finish. Due to the black glitter it has a slight texture to it. I am not a big fan of the finish by itself so I decided to add top coat and a matte top coat on the nail of my ring finger. And for the record: this is one (!) coat of I Love Your Guts!I think this is a polish that you either love or despise. What do you think?
Stamping? I gave that up a long time ago. I’ve seen so many amazing new plates lately and even more amazing designs created with them I thought it was time to give it another try. But not before searching for a new stamper. I’ve found an XL stamper and scraper at Hypnotic Polish and went for it. This is my first attempt after a long time so please bear with me. For my base I used one (!) coat of Rendezvous With You by China Glaze. What a fantastic polish! Not only is the formula perfect but that color! Love!
For the design I used Essie‘s No Place Like Chrome and a Sci-Fi (5) plate from MoYou, which you can also find at Hypnotic Polish. What do you think of this stamping design?
Choo Choo Choose You by China Glaze is such a gorgeous shade! I don’t think I have anything like it in my stash. What a beauty:This also has a slightly green-isch sheen which I couldn’t capture on camera. It is just such a unique hue of grey-isch purple with tons of shimmer.
This polish is part of the All Aboard! Collection, released in Fall last year.
Shown is three thin coats plus top coat. I’ve found this at Hypnotic Polish 😀
Have you noticed that more and more brands come up with entire textured collections? They’re everywhere! I don’t mind, I love them!
Today I have Wish On A Starfish from China Glaze‘s Sea Goddess Collection to show you. This is a pale pink with golden shimmer running throughout. I’ve used two coats for the picture below:It’s a pity that the golden shimmer doesn’t show up in my picture. It’s lovely!
How does this compare to Catrice’s Call Me Princess?Wish On A Starfish is obviously a lighter shade of pink. Also I think the golden shimmer in Call Me Princess is slightly more noticeable than Wish On A Starfish. They’re both pretty! Formula wise they’re quite similar. They both need two coats for full opacity.
When I saw the preview of China Glaze’s Crinkled Chrome Collection I wasn’t excited about the finish. If fact I’m still not quite sure whether I like it or not. After seeing many different swatches I decided to give it a go. So I bought just one, Crush, Crush, Baby:I absolutely love the color! As for the finish, mwah. Maybe it’s the bar glitter? I don’t know. It has to be mentioned that this is just one (!) coat that dried quickly. It’s a nice addition to my stash but I wouldn’t buy more polishes from this collection.
What do you think? Do you like the texture or does it look like I’ve painted my nails with my eyes closed?
