China Glaze Spam

Ahhh the ongoing First World Polish Problems of the untrieds. For months these lovelies have languished in their boxes, waiting appreciation and an extreme close up photo opportunity.Β  So, in a particular order – see if you can guess what – here are my untried China Glaze polishes! Either destashed or bought outright, I do love China Glaze!

Angel Wings: micro holographic gold glitter in a clear base, from last years Christmas collection, I believe.

Three coats, no top coat, it looks textured but it feels more like suede than like grit, this would be super pretty with a top coat, too! Love…

Sunshine Pop: Bright yellow with a white/silver shimmer – reminds me of yellow balloons!

2 coats, no top coat. This is a slightly older bottle so newer ones may take three coats, the shimmer made this want to be a tiny bit streaky, but it was fine in the end. I doubt I’d wear this on it’s own, but it’ll be worth it’s weight in gold for nail art πŸ™‚

I Herd That – orange and gold holo and micro glitter in a clear base

3 coats, no top coat. I am sort of divided on this polish… it’s really close to my skin tone. Not that I have sparkly skin. I do have home made wine, so if my comments get very random, you’ll know why! hehehe. Anyway, I think I’m liking this – it’s a subtle colour, but highly blingy (sorry no sun to prove it!) and will look great on it’s own or layered over browns and blacks etc.

Hello Gorgeous! blush pink holographic microglitters in a clear base

3 coats, no top coat. This was slightly sheerer than I’d like, I think I’ll layer it next time, but it’s a very pretty colour.

When Stars Collide – dusty purpled pink holographic chrome polish from their Hologlam collection.

This was the other one I wanted from that collection, so I was stoked to grab it from Harriet’s destash! This would be a one coater if you were in a hurry, I did two for form πŸ˜€

This dries fast! The photos aren’t good, sorry, its a touch more holographic than it looks πŸ™‚

under lights... hence the red tone, but does show what the holo is capable of!

Strawberry Fields – hot pink jelly with gold glass fleck shimmer

This is about as far from my ‘normal’ favourite type of polish as you can get, but I love it πŸ˜€ It’s so happy. In fact I’m going to put it on my toenails very soon πŸ˜€ 3 coats, no top coat.

Lubu Heels: red microglitter in a black base

CG Lubu Heels

Wow, ok, this was HEAPS blacker than I thought! 2 coats, no top coat. Though seeing the sunshine photos (yay! Sunlight broke through!) I should have used 3 coats. Dries fast! Very pretty πŸ™‚

Running in Circles – green micro glitter in a slightly deeper green jelly base.

Has a slight blue duochrome in the shade!

2 coats, no top coat. Very, very sparkly and pretty!

Fancy Pants: gorgeous blue/purple with pink shimmer

My bottle lid wasn’t put on properly (bought it new, arrived like so), and the polish overflow glued the lid on. So annoying! However, I went to a Tupperware party and because it was my first (and only, bah) I was given a thing called ‘the boyfriend’ which cracks me up, sort of a square flat silicon sheet, small, with grippy bumps, so we delicate females can open our own jars. Silly, yes, but it works, and it works on polish bottles! YAY! No more teeth marks in the lid! πŸ˜€ Worth suffering through an incredibly over priced party thing for, in my opinion πŸ˜€

2 coats, no top coat, this was a bit thicker than normal China Glaze polishes, probably because of the not-quite-sealed lid.

and, finally for today, Man Hunt: deep soft blue crelly

2 coats, no top coat. Wow! Look at that shine! Love, love, love this polish πŸ˜€ Nice that it’s opaque in two coats too.

So there we have it! All my China Glaze untrieds.

Have a great day
