Hope you have a lovely week ahead all I know is that I probably have another long one but I have lots of lovely things lined up for you here on the blog (or bog)! Just look at how beautiful this polish is! I was lucky enough to borrow this one from Emma (Imagination in Colour) and I was blown away by the formula, the finish… everything about this polish. I am always sceptical about China Glaze now after so many hit and miss experiences of late but this one is definitely China Glaze on top form and proof that this is a company that does make GREAT polish.
This shimmery foil applied evenly and opaquely in two coats and if you’re a green lover, this most definitely SHOULD be in your collection. The boldness of this emerald green is mind blowing and I contrasted this with a rusty orange cardy for one of my outfits last week. It is eye catching and I got a lot of compliments on it – including on the bus ride which makes up my commute to the Courts. Yes ok, office appropriate went out the window for this polish but I think by not faffing with it and pairing it with the right outfit… it made it ok… OK?! shhhh…
I believe I used the last of my HK Girl topcoat on this although it has a very glossy smooth finish all of its own.
My poor cuticles are becoming a bit dried out at the moment so I am now carrying my bottle of oil around in my handbag in the hope that I remember to use it more to help nourish my abused fingers.
I didn’t double up on base coat on this and had no staining, which is a big thumbs up, although clean up was a bit tricky with the shimmer and you can see some slight staining to the dry skin around my nail, but it has come off now with a change of polish.
I think the vibrancy of this polish keeps it from being a purely festive polish and also makes it very wearable as it doesn’t pull too blue or too yellow to my mind. This is just so glowy and… other worldly?
I think this was part of their Cirque Du Soleil collection and still available from Nail Polish Direct (and I am sure elsewhere). I really want to do some sort of Close Encounters nail art with this now… what does this colour remind you of?
Another borrowed polish which I think will be going on my shopping list at some point… Remember when I said sharing polish with a friend was a great way to saved money?! What’s on your wishlist at the moment? I am currently lusting over some of the new Zoyas and the OPI Coca Cola collection.
What did you get up to this weekend? I was mainly running errands and catching up with things I didn’t have time for during the week. I finally got to sit down and get started on some of the commissions that have been waiting for me. I have three doggie paintings to do and here is the first all finished:
