China Glaze Foie Gras

Good evening ladies, I hope you've had a good day :)

Tonight I have another China Glaze swatch for you. I also used this in a NOTD but I lost my light so I hope to get photos of that tomorrow. Ill try to get that post up by tomorrow evening (fingers crossed).

Anyway, tonight I have Foie Gras to show you. It was part of the spring 2012 Hunger Games collection. Its a purplely brown creme. Kind of a dusty color, it dries darker than what the bottle leads you to believe. I had no application issues and it covered fully in two coats. I got it for nail art mostly because it is kind of a weird color.

I got mine at Sallys a few months back when it was on clearence. Some might still have it, but if not I'm sure you can find it on ebay or amazon.

That's all for today. I will try to get my next post up tomorrow (I really need to build a light box). As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed :)

China Glaze Lemon Fizz: NOTD

Good afternoon ladies. I hope you are having a good day :)

I decided to continue down the path of wearing all my China Glazes (which isn't that many) so I could have swatches of them all. I went with Lemon Fizz today.

Lemon Fizz was part of the spring 2010 Up and Away collection. It is a soft pastel yellow creme. One of the best formulas I've found for a yellow. Took three coats, but that's because I was impatient and smudged my second coat. Otherwise I could have gotten away with two.

I doubt that you will find this in stores, but I know its on ebay for about $5. I'm sure its also on amazon. I got mine from copious before they went downhill.

That's all I have for you today. Sorry for being so short but I don't feel that great today. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed :)

China Glaze Bahamian Escape: NOTD

Good evening ladies, I hope you are all enjoying your day :)

I wanted to share my NOTD with you right quick. We are going to start preparing for dinner tomorrow here in a little bit. I imagine this might get ruined but that just gives me another excuse to paint them again lol.

I wanted something bright and fun for today. And it seems I've been on a blue kick as well as a China Glaze kick here lately, so I went with Bahamian Escape. Plus as its getting colder who wouldn't wanna escape to the Bahamas?

Bahamian Escape was part of the winter 2008 Bahama Blues collection. It went on wonderfully, with full coverage in two coats. I've really come to love CG's formula. In terms of color i'd say its somewhere between a sky blue and a robins egg. Either way she's beautiful.

I got mine from ebay, and seeing as its from 2008 its highly unlikely to be in any store. I'm sure you can find it on amazon and maybe

Well, that's all for today. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families, and if you're going shopping this evening or in the morning, please be safe. As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed :)

China Glaze For Audrey: NOTD

Good morning ladies, I hope your day is a good one so far. I'm off to the doctor with my honey to see if we can discover the cause of some grinding and constant pain in her knee. When it comes to doctors she's like a big baby, so this day should be interesting lol.
But before we go I wanted to share my NOTD with you. This is probably one of the most popular China Glazes out there. I know it went on my wishlist the moment I first saw it. And of course that would be For Audrey (FA).
FA was released in honor of Audrey Hepburn. It is really close in color to the infamous "Tiffany blue", although it leans a bit more blue. In the horrible lighting in my house it can look minty blue. And of course this makes me love it more.
The formula was pretty good. It was a bit runny, but since I bought it used I don't know if it's just my bottle or not. Someone may have thinned it a bit too much. You can see I had some cuticle pooling on the middle finger of my left hand. Also, my bottle has a wonky brush. All photos show two coats.
Even though it was released a while ago its still pretty easy to find. According to Sallys its in stock online and in stores. I've also seen it on ebay and amazon. I think you can also get it on transdesign, although last time I checked it was sold out. I got mine on copious back during the summer.
Well, that's all I have for you today. Do you own this or is it one that you want? As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed :)

My New Winter Blue:NOTD

Good evening ladies. I hope you are all enjoying your day :)

I thought I would share a quick NOTD post with you. I've been real lazy about painting lately, still not back on scedule after the time change. Also I got mad the other day and choped my nails into super nubbbins, so forgive the shortness. Apparently I'm really violent in my sleep, I would wake up every morning with new scratches.

Ok, enough of my yapping, onto the nails.

This is two coats of China Glaze Electric Beat. It's a beautiful dusty cornflower blue. But it's not as dark as some dusty blues tend to be. Kinda like somebody shot it with some periwinkle.

It's from the spring 2012 Electropop line, so I doubt you'll find it in stores. But, I got mine fron ebay and I'm sure you can find it on amazon or transdesign. I also want to pick up aquadelic, dance baby, and kinetic candy from that collection.

Well, that about wraps it up. Don't forgot to drop by my facebook page to see other nails of the day and all sorts of random stuff. As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed! :)
