Here's a little bit of my China Glaze collection. They've done a lot of amazing colors over the years, and I'm really glad their new formula dries quickly now cause they're one of the most ballsy and creative brands when it comes to color.
In The Mood something to Green.... Might be Gold to Green? It's supposed to change colors but I've never been able to get it to change. That's totally okay cause I love the color it is right now!
Cross Iron 360. Man, the Ski collection was great. Every single color was amazing. This one is a flaming copper-orange with really cool shimmer that lights up like flames and a little bit of duochrome.
Crown Jewels. I think this is an older one and I can't remember ever wearing it other than to swatch it here. It's a light frosty purple.
Crystal Ball. Tell me, tell me where I'm going, I don't know where I've been... Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me and then tell me again... My heart is breaking, my body's aching and I don't know where to go.... Tell me, tell me won't you tell me, I just gotta know.... Crystal baaaaaaaaaaaaalllll! So many things I need to know! >.>;;
Dripping In Gold. Basic light gold frost/shimmer. Shimmery frost. I think there's a bit of gold microglitter in here too but it's not super visible.
Fairy Dust. Definitely not meant to be worn alone. I think this is like... 5 coats or something. Hahaha!
Gilded Treasures. Aw man, I see polish residue from the previous color under my pinkie and a giant globby smudge on my index. And my nails are all different shapes and lengths. No wonder I never posted this picture. Great color, though, sparkly microglittery light gold.
Golden Glamour. I don't know if I like this nail shape on me.
Hippie Chic. Old picture!! I do have a thumb! And uneven broken nails! But again, awesome color. Rosy red and pink with gold shimmer and duochrome.
Grape Crush. Mmm, holo glitter.
Frostbite. Scrangie tested, Abbath approved!
Yell-O-Neil. I like the color of this one but the formula was a nightmare. Really thick and glue-like. Needs thinner.
I'm Not Bitter. I think I must have broken at least two nails the day I was doing these swatches. The pinkie and index are really short and rounded, a shape I never do on purpose unless a nail broke in the corner. Huh. Why do I swatch with broken nails??
Ink. The Ink collection was SO GOOD. Was this 2008? 2008 was a great year for China Glaze collections. This was the nail art polish that came out in that collection. It has a teeny tiny skinny brush for doing nail art and it was a serious pain in the ass to paint my nails with it! Haha! But it 's a unique color, dark blue almost black. Creme finish.
Limonyte. So amazing. Again with the broken nails, though! China Glaze, for some reason, has discontinued this incredible unique neon green. They seriously need to bring this back!! One of my top three neon greens of all time! I haven't found an exact match for it in any other brand!
