China Glaze Specialty Nail Polish

    Good afternoon, Dear Reader!

    I have more China Glaze Glitters for you. They're officially called "Specialty" polishes, since the total release of fifty includes chromes and normal polishes as well as glitters. I went with that for a title today because one of today's is a regular polish, and also because I was feeling a bit lazy about coming up with a good remark to follow "China Glaze Glitters" in the title - nothing felt too inspired.

    I didn't plan to do swatches today, but I have fantastic sun, a rarity this time of year, so I grabbed four from my sparkling*nails box and had at it! All of these are two coats, none with a top coat. I'll start with the regular one and move on to the glitters.

    Strawberry Smoothie is a glowy pink shimmer.

    When I was swatching this one, I thought it needed a little something (seeing the pictures I see I judged too harshly), so I added one coat of Bad Kitty. From some things I've read, I understand the regular polishes might have glitter "mates," but since I don't get China Glaze press releases or samples, I have no more info on that than the average Joe. I just winged it on this one.

    I'll show you the rest in order of glitter size, which would put Stellar next in line. This one is a slightly mauve, almost neutral, very sparkly shade, full of tiny silver glitter.

    Silver Lining also has fine glitter, very dense silver glitter in a clear base.

    Treasure Chest, the last one for today, is a clear base packed with regular and hex glitter, both gold.

    There are more where these came from, Dear Reader! I've just found that my patience for swatching is limited to four colors.

    In totally unrelated news, Barielle came out with a matte top coat - I got one in the mail yesterday. I'll do a side-by-side comparison in the next few days on the matte tops coats I have to show you what your options are for those.

    Until tomorrow, Dear Reader, love and nail polish to you!
