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 ūüė¶

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 ūüôā 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! ūüôā

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 ūüôā

China Glaze I’m Not Lion Swatch

4 Aug

There is nothing that I love more than a really beautiful glitter polish. Especially if it’s a holo. So when I saw the 2 glitters in China Glaze’s new¬†On Safari Collection, I knew they had to be mine. So I went to my local Ulta and picked up¬†I’m Not Lion and I Herd That. Haha, China Glaze has such cute puns. I’ll eventually swatch I Herd That but today, I present you I’m Not Lion:

Wow, look at all that glitter *_* It looks like a perfect mix of gold and silver glitter so that on the nail, it looks like a champagne gold color. And a really beautiful holo effect too. In the sunlight the silver really comes out along with the beauty of the holo.

You can see the holo a little¬†better in this picture, but my camera doesn’t show holo well.

Wow, this color is so beautiful. I usually paint my nails everyday but I loved this color so much I wore it for 2 days. The formula on this was perfect, nice and smooth. Some glitters and holos will dull down a lot once you put a top coat on but this one¬†got 10 times¬†more beautiful.¬†And since it’s mostly just glitter, it dried super fast. I used 3 coats but I got full coverage in 2 coats.

I’m completely in love with this color. If you don’t own this color already, go to Ulta and pick it up or order off the internet or something. It’s totally worth it.
