China Glaze Swatch Spam
Can you believe it is almost November already? Seriously, where has the time gone?? Just Yesterday it seems like it was July, and now it's almost Thanksgiving!!
I love this time of year! I love the cold weather and sweaters and rain.. (It rains a lot here in the Pacific Northwest!) And hopefully it will snow a whole lot like it did last year! I adore snow!
Anyways, enough with the weather stuff and onto the nail polish stuff. Since my no buy is still going, I have done a few large swatch spam posts, and now it's China Glaze's turn!!
So, Onto the polish shall we?
First up with have Deviantly Daring. This is from the China Glaze Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection, Their duochrome collection that came out a couple of months ago. I was seriously excited about this collection, but when it arrived it was a little less than stellar!!
Deviantly Daring is a Blue/Teal/Green duo chrome. I wish there was a tad bit more duochrome in it, but I really did love the color! I am a sucker for blues after all! The polish went on well, a tad bit thin, but three coats brought it up to full opacity. It did get slightly brush-strokey (Is that even a word?) But, I think it was worth it!!
Next up is Coconut Kiss, a lovely pink leaning purple. As usual my camera freaked out at the purple, so it's a tad bit more purple in real life!
Application was good, it went on well, and it took 3 coats to bring it up to full opacity. This polish is also naturally shiny! I didn't use any sort of top coat in the below pictures, and look at how it shines! Woo!! :D
Next up is Blue Iguana a Bright Blue microshimmer foil with a bright Aqua shimmer to it! I loved this polish, it was such a bright in your face sort of blue, however it was super sheer! I used three coats in the below pictures and I still had VNL! I probably could have done a few more coats, but I didn't feel like it!
This polish was super fun, and I don't have anything else like it in my nail collection!
Last but not least, we have Unpredictable. Another one from the Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection. A Greenish Blue Gold Duochrome! I loved this color! It was super cool, and the color shift was pretty good as well! It went on fairly easily as well! I used three coats for the below pictures!
