Whaaat. Does this image appear blurry, too? It’s perfectly clear when I upload so I’m not sure what’s going on here. Plus it’s enormous! Shrugs
Anyhows, here is another China Glaze polish in Tree Hugger from the ECollection back from Spring 2008. Chartreuse greens are always tough for me. They are so bright and vibrant and lovely- they make me want to buy them in bulk! But they can be very tricky to pull off.. Chartreuse eye shadows, too. Any tips pour moi?
I didn’t mean to wear this one as a full manicure, but after swatching on 4 nails I had to continue. What is it in this green that made me not want to take it off? ..especially in the midst of summer? Who knows but I love it! China Glaze’s (Fall 2008) Gussied Up Green is a must have for a rich green with a bit of warmth.
I’m back from Montreal! I’m so sorry I didn’t plan accordingly and post while I was away. I’m back, I hope you’re still there. Heartcha xo
For my Pink Wednesday manicure this week, I decided to mix up a little somethin’ somethin’- okay so I didn’t actually mix anything but I layered!
First off was China Glaze Pool Party. This stuff is seriously neon (why is it showing so orange, I’m not too sure!), and being so neon, it has some apparent flaws- it’s matte (maybe a flaw?) and it chips (definitely a flaw). I decided to layer a nice bright pink jelly formula (Essie Movers & Shakers, which I have previously reviewed here) on top! I love how the neon factor shines through:) Very juicy watermelon pink. Perfect for summer. It’s on my toes too, I love it! xo
Hi everyone! Today’s Pink Wednesday is a manicure that was shuffled beneath a pile of who knows what in my computer folders. I swatched this color back when I had some shorty nails. Pretty!
This holographic collection is fantastic, dries in record time and looks unbelievable! Love the rainbow effect. Busy week pour moi so I’m out, but <3 cha all!
Remember that tweet about a week back of my NOTD? Here’s a better picture of a recent favorite combo. The picture shown is OPI Strange Tides nail polish layered beneath China Glaze’s White Cap. I told you White Cap is fabulous and makes everything sparkly and wonderful, no?
I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday and talk with you soon loves. xo
Aw, my first Pink Wednesday post. If you aren’t familiar, go watch Mean Girls and you’ll understand where the inspiration came from:) From what I think I know (ha!), a group of ladies created a blog roll of nail bloggers who all come together and create different pink mani’s for the middle of the week. Since I don’t have ANY rhyme or reason to my blog, I thought I might as well throw in a little stability.
The base color pictured is China Glaze Endurance. I then stamped Bundle Monster plate 212 over the nails with Fancy Fuchsia by Orly. (LOVE!) I wish it came out a bit more vibrant rather than pastel but the image was so thin, I’m happy it came out at all! After .3 seconds, the stamping was dry. I then took my trusty toothpick and dabbed some of Essies California Coral on the areas that needed a little boost. I’ve had only tiny amounts of practice with stamping, so I had to cover up the gaps with something! Plus, the power went out mid stamp on my middle finger. For realz. -_- Ignore the smudge. :^)
I thought in honor of having not enough time to write anything too fancy on my blog today, I’d give you something fairly straight forward! Enter: Spontaneous by China Glaze! What can you say about this other than it’s a medium purple cream? A decent formula and great opaque coverage. You like?
Now HERE is a yellow I can get excited about! If you saw my post on China Glaze’s Solar Power, you’ll know I’m not a huge fan of all versions of the color (on finger nails, at least). But this color.. was a pain in the ass! I forgive it though, it’s highliter yellow!!! So awesome and bright and summery. So what if it took 6 coats and still wasn’t opaque- at least neons dry quickly so it didn’t take up too much of my evening :) Love Love Love, love love love! #extendingthelovefest
What’s the on the ring finger, you ask? A layer of China Glaze’s White Cap. One of my new favorite polishes to layer.
p.s. if you have shorter nails, the visible nail line will be obviously less visible- so keep that in mind. Next time I wear this color, I will try layering over white.
