China Glaze Glitter Goblin Swatch

24 Oct

I was super excited when I picked up China Glaze Glitter Goblin from the Halloween 2012 Wicked Collection. I also wanted to get Make A Spectacle but they didn’t have it in stock 😦

When you pick up the bottle, the holo in it just…. wow. It’s totally amazing, pictures couldn’t capture the perfection of the holo.

The glitter is a dark orange/copper and silver holo. To be perfectly honest, I totally love this color, but when the holo doesn’t show, it’s…. not that attractive of a color in my opinion. Not ugly, just… mehh.

Actually, now that I look, I missed a couple of spots! Oops! Please ignore that…

But it’s a very chunky glitter, kinda of like the 2 glitters in the China Glaze On Safari collection, but you have to use more coats to get full coverage. This is… either 3 or 4 coats, sorry can’t remember 🙂 The formula in this was okay, sometimes the glitter liked to clump together, but it was easy to even out. It dried quickly, as most glitter bombs do! 🙂

This is definitely a unique polish! I honestly have never seen anything quite like it, especially with all that holo! It’s totally worth picking up if you can find it 🙂

China Glaze Harvest Moon Swatch

10 Sep

Hey guys! I’m glad I finally get to post something new! I’ve had lots of trouble with my camera lately so I haven’t had a chance to swatch some stuff, but, today I have a swatch of something I love!

That is China Glaze’s Harvest Moon from the Hunger Games that was released this Spring. My birthday’s in March so for my birthday I received this entire collection! They were actually the first China Glaze colors that I owned. I guess 12 isn’t a bad start 🙂

Harvest Moon is an orange copper foil color. If you know anything about the Hunger Games, then I shall inform you that this color is based off of District 9, the grain district. This color is so perfect for fall! And super shiny 🙂

I have only worn this color once before, and I can’t remember why, it’s so gorgeous! The only problem is the formula, it went on super nice, but then it took forever to dry. Even with my fast drying top coat, I kept denting it all night! Also, it was kinda hard to take off, just because it’s so shimmery and metallic. But it’s so worth it because this color is gorgeous 🙂

China Glaze I Herd That

6 Aug

As I mentioned in the last post, I picked up this polish from the On Safari Collection the other day. This one is a beautiful gold and copper glitter, with a small amount of holo glitter. It’s not nearly as holographic as I’m Not Lion (from the same collection.)

There’s barely any holo in this unless it’s in direct sunlight, and even then it is hard to see. If you look at the bottle, it looks like it’s mostly copper with a little bit of gold glitter. On the nail, it’s almost the opposite. Maybe it’s just that the gold stands out more but I think it’s a lot more gold on the nail than it is in the bottle.

 

 

You can see the holo a lot better in this picture, on the nail and in the bottle. When I took this picture, I had been wearing this polish for about 12 hours and you can already see the slight chipping on the tip of my ring finger. Also, I didn’t like this formula. It was slightly gloppy. Although the coverage was great. This is 2 coats.

If I had to choose between I’m Not Lion and I Herd That, I would choose I’m Not Lion. Although, part of that might be because I’m not a huge fan of gold 🙂
