Silver Swatches, Part 1.

In response to a request from lovely reader (and blogger!) Tabe-chan, here are some silvers.

In case you can't tell, I ADORE silver.

China Glaze Chroma-Toes. Chrome finish.

China Glaze OMG

China Glaze Platinum Silver (streaky, goopy mess!)

China Glaze Sexagon

CND (Creative Nail Design) Disco Ball. Has lots of holographic glitter circles, extremely gorgeous but hard to capture in a picture.

CND Silver Anniversary

Color Club What A Drag

Essie Opera

Essie Sterling Silver

Lippmann Collection Stardust

Lippmann Collection Believe (sort of champagne-silver)

Manglaze Grey (more grey than silver)

Misa Dance Fever

Misa Got To Be Reel

Sally Hansen Sterling (chrome/mirror finish)

Sally Hansen Shooting Star

Piggy Polish Sunshine On Snowflakes (tiny holographic/silver microglitter)

Zoya Trixie

More to come... Stay tuned.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous pics, thanks so much Scrangie! I love silver polishes and now I need to get my hands on SH Sterling and Piggy Polish Sunshine On Snowflakes, thanks to you! :)


  2. Aw, thanks TK! And you're welcome! SH Sterling should be easy to find, Piggy Polish Sunshine on Snowflakes is seasonal, but I found it pretty recently in the clearance bin at Ulta!

  3. OMG! Sunshine on sunflakes is absolutely gorgeous!

  4. Emelie, I think it's one of the prettiest polishes ever made! I need to find more of them!

  5. Oh wow-awesome pics!
    I didn't know sexagon was THAT pretty!
    Which of CND Silver Anniversary, Color Club What A Drag, Misa Got To Be Reel and Zoya Trixie has the best staying power?

  6. Sanna, I'd say it's a tie between What A Drag and Trixie. They are very dense silver shimmer and they wear like iron. I've never had either chip! And since they wear so strongly, they're also very difficult to remove. They really hand on to your nails for dear life, LOL :D

  7. Beautiful swatches scrang, I love the essie + the china glazes. Hell, I love them all! :)

  8. Hahaha, thanks! :D More to come!

  9. Wow, I love silver too. One of the only 3 colours I really wear. There are some wicked ones that I am going to have to go track down now.

  10. Nat, yay, another silver fan!

  11. Gorgeous! I love silver (and gold) polishes and these swatches are extremely useful in helping me decide which ones to get. Thanks!

  12. Shryh, you are very welcome and I am *always* happy to help!

  13. Scrangie, I love your blog and I love this post! I can't believe this is only part 1, though - geez, you really do love silver, huh? ;) Me, too, and you've created more lemmings for me.


  14. Oh my Gooood! I adore silver and it looks great on you! I have been eyeing CC What a Drag for so long! Thanks for posting, you're seriously awesome!

  15. Jen, wow, thank you! I really can't resist anything silver!

    Rocketqueen, thank you :D CC What A Drag is really nice, and inexpensive, too!

  16. I adore silver aswell! Now I need two more laquers that I need to get. ;) Lovely pictures as always! Absolutely lovely!

  17. Chaosophia, thank you so much :D

  18. Just found your blog via I'm currently wearing China Glaze OMG. How great is it?? Luv it. And dries sooo quick! Ultimate paint-and-hit-the-town. Great blog, will be checking back a lot!

  19. Hey Lina-Elvira! Welcome, I'm glad to have you here :D

    I love that about OMG (and all of China Glaze's other holographic polishes). They dry so fast and look amazing!
