China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy and I Herd That | Look, Photos, Review

Just a quick post to clear out some space. I quick little “look” I threw together for a job interview last week. It’s three or four slow, steady coats of Flip Flop Fantasy, and two coats of I Herd That, both from (GUESS) China Glaze.

China Glaze Hologlam | Sci-Fly By and Strap On Your Moonboots

IMG_8563 IMG_8566 IMG_8567

Sci-Fly By is an aqua blue holographic polish. It’s truly holographic, though not as vibrant as the OMG collection, but extremely close.

IMG_8569 IMG_8570 IMG_8571

Strap On Your Moonboots is a dark denim blue holo that is absolutely stunning. I’m obsessed with this one.

The formula on these were, as expected, perfect. 100% flawless.

China Glaze Fast Track | Swatches, Photos, and Review

IMG_8136 IMG_8137 IMG_8138 IMG_8139This is Fast Track from China Glaze’s Hunger Games collection. Colours from the Capital or Capital Colors. Whichever they ended up using. Super pretty medium beige with tons and tons of pale gold shimmer. It’s so pretty and neutral. This picture pulls out the red in my hands, but it looked fine to the eye.

China Glaze Metro Collection Reswatches | Swatches, Photos, Review

IMG_8424 IMG_8425 IMG_8426 IMG_8427

CG In the City | A multi-colored glitter containing silver, gray, purple, lavender, and maybe black glitter.


City Siren | A cool deep red. Absolutely gorgeous. Perfect formula, one of my favorites.


Concrete Catwalk | A blue-toned deep, luxurious gray. The formula was so creamy and easy to apply.


Midtown Magic | A dark, dark brown base loaded with all different kinds of glitter. I can pick up some gold, red, green, and maybe a purple or blue? Amazing formula, again. This would be the perfect polish, but in some lighting this just looks like a black creme. So, so pretty though.


Trendsetter | A yellow olive creme base with either gold or yellow glitter. It’s one of those ugly-pretty colors. You definitely have to be in the mood to wear this one!


Westside Warrior | A deep military green. Not quite olive drab-in certain lighting, more evergreen in others.

China Glaze Rare & Radiant and Deviantly Daring | Swatches, Photos, and Review

IMG_6295Just a quick post. A manicure I found hiding in a folder. It’s from a while ago- I just remember that the formulas were good. This is China Glaze Rare & Radiant, you know, one of the thousand Chanel Peridot dupes. It’s pretty and all, but I prefer Deviantly Daring, a turquoise/azure/teal duochrome. Both are from the New Bohemian collection.

China Glaze Avant Garden | Swatches, Photos, and Review

Hey guys! Another quick post! I got ahold of the Avant Garden collection- FINALLY. I feel like I’m so behind on getting these polishes! I haven’t even had time to shop. There must be something wrong with me! Anyway, I finally just gave up and ordered them on TransDesign. I only wanted seven of the collection, so I just got all seven at once.

IMG_8276 Budding Romance, Dandy Lyin’ Around, Fancy PantsIMG_8296Keep Calm, Paint On, Mimosas Before Manis, Snap My Dragon, Sunday Funday

IMG_8318 IMG_8319

Budding Romance is a dirty, dark spring green. A little more dirty/olive than grass green. I’d be willing to say Army Olive Drab? It seems to have an almost jelly finish in photos, but it looks like an opaque creamy shiny goodness.

IMG_8330 IMG_8331Dandy Lyin’ Around is a bright, true, shimmery white. This and Keep Calm, Paint On were the two in this collection I needed right off the bat, before even seeing swatches online. And I was not disappointed. The formula on this is great. Not even for a white or a pastel, but a good formula in general. Only the absolute slightest of streaking. So shimmery and pretty and *sigh* perfect.

IMG_8337 IMG_8338Fancy Pants is a indigo purple creme with tons and tons of pink, light blue, and gold(?) shimmer. So freaking gorgeous. Perfect formula. One coat.

GUYS. GUYS. I bought a purple. I. Bought. A. Purple. It’s just too pretty. I don’t even have words.

IMG_8341 IMG_8350

Keep Calm, Paint On is a pastel sage/mint color with near-white light blue-green shimmer. So pretty. Again, no words. Much more flattering on my skin in person, vs. flash. The formula was just okay. I mean, better than their other spring mint, Re-Fresh Mint by far. But still iffy. The shimmer helped, I think. Still, it was worth it. Two coats. Also, great (historical) name!

IMG_8351 IMG_8356 IMG_8352

Mimosas Before Manis is my favorite of the collection. It’s a perfect coral/melon with tangerine shimmer. Just look at that perfection. The formula was flawless. In love.

IMG_8359 IMG_8360

Snap My Dragon is a neutral red with hot pink crazy shimmer. SO glowy and soft and pretty. Again, let the pictures talk.

GUYS. GUYS. I bought a red. I. Bought. A. Red.

IMG_8363 IMG_8365

Sunday Funday is a color I wish I had liked more. It’s a sky blue with a sheer-ish, streaky formula. It runs straight to your cuticles. It’s darker in person, it looks neon here. It’s like the color in the bottle near the sticker tag. I wish it were neon. It just doesn’t stand up compared to the previous ones.

Overall, great collection. Sunday Funday wasn’t up to par with the others, but is still a good polish in the end. Have you gotten any of this collection?

Holographic Roundup: China Glaze GR8 | Swatches, Photos, and Review

IMG_7825 IMG_7826 IMG_7828

GR8 is a yellow gold linear holographic from the OMG Collection. As with the rest of the OMG collection, the holographic in these are super strong and very linear. Now… I hate gold on my hands. It really just doesn’t look great on me. I prefer bronzes and bright colors. But it was on clearance!
