Quick Post: My Easter 2013 Manicure

Yeah, easter… I know I’ve been neglecting you all for a while! Sorry!



China Glaze Dance Baby (?), two coats. China Glaze White Cap, one coat. Stamped with Konad using China Glaze Purrfect Plum.

China Glaze Electropop Collection (Partial)

So this is the most fail-tastic post of all, I think. My camera deleted pictures without my permission (or I pushed some buttons…) and got rid of my swatches, so I only had my “four day wear test” pictures of Wicked Style, so I am going to use just the wear test pictures… and they aren’t that bad!

First up!

Dance Baby is a bright bubblegum pink. It’s not neon, but it’s bright. I hate how cremes get that foggy look to them with this topcoat, but it’s all I have right now. Like I said, this is after FOUR days of heavy wear and tear.

I hate not having a lightbox, because the flash washes me out, but this makes my skin looks super tan and lush and happy. I don’t know if you remember my winter-dry-hands-of-woe before, but I’m nursing my sad little hands back to health, slowly. The fact that we’re barely having a winter is helping.

Sunshine Pop is a bold yellow with white shimmer. I loved this polish. I hate the color yellow, and I have yellow toned skin, so I REALLY hate yellow nail polish, but this one looked amazing on me. It pulled out the pink, which (on camera) resulted in lobster hands, but looked amazing IRL. My cuticles are a mess, so it looks like it pooled, but it didn’t, I promise. More on that later. MORE PICTURES!

There, a more respectable shot of my cuticles. And as for the tip wear? This was taken after four days. I know I keep repeating it because, well… frankly, I’m amazed I could keep the polish on for that long. Three times! Usually it’s half chipped off, I get angry and take it off. This collection wears so well, even compared to some of my favorite China Glazes.

Shade. The wrinkle on the index finger is from a “an itch! Oh, crap… wet nails…” episode.

Wicked Style is a bright medium fuchsia. The color in the bottle in the picture below is the most accurate here. Like as before, this is after four days of wear. It’s a tad bit sheer in pictures, but I didn’t notice that in person.

The application of all three of these was pretty good. The yellow and bright color were a little streaky, as expected with those type of colors. The brushes on these bottles were strange. They were… stiffer(?) than usual… They were kind of wonky. These are press samples though, so maybe the production brushes will be different. It wan’t that much of a problem, it just made me have to do a little more cleanup, which you guys know I don’t do. Ever. 🙂

Which of the Electropop collection are you waiting for? I want the blues and green… maybe even the purple… I don’t own any purple nail polishes, besides glittery ones like Mummy May I…
