Pretty Nail Polish Alert!



Hi Everyone! I hope you're all having a nice weekend. It's been SO hot where I live, and finally today things are cooling down just a bit. Last night I was doing my nails before going out- not yet sure what I wanted to wear. So I reached for my new China Glaze nail polish in Awakening- and I'm so glad I did- it's absolutely gorgeous! I'm not sure if this will make any sense: but when it goes on your nails it looks the very same as it does in the bottle- which tends to be different in every light. The color can look anywhere from mauve to magenta- while always giving a gorgeous, almost metallic golden undertone. So it complimented any number of outfits I'd pick out.

I have 2 coats of polish on my nails in these pictures. Honestly, If I was in a hurry, one coat would've been fine. Then I topped it off with Sally Hansen's Mega Shine topcoat for added shine & strength. I'm able to find China Glaze polishes at my local Sally Beauty Supply store- but if you know of other places people can find them- please comment and let me & everyone else know :) They cost around 5 or 6 dollars- and sometimes there's a BOGO deal. It seems a little pricey to me for a nail polish- but it's a price I'm willing to pay from time to time for the following reasons:
  1. Variety of shades... like the one featured in this blog, some of the China Glaze colors are so unique- you just wouldn't find them from another brand.
  2. Sometimes it only takes one coat... with certain shades you can totally get by with one coat
  3. It goes on so smooth! No streaky finish- it always ends up looking creamy & beautiful!
  4. Long-lasting... in my experience, these polishes maintain a fresh appearance and it takes quite awhile for them to start chipping. Obviously if I'm having an especially active week I can expect some premature chipping, but overall I think China Glaze can outlast most other polishes.


Have a great week everyone! Thanks for stopping by the blog! :D

  8. That is a gorgeous color! I went to Ulta and picked up the shade "ruby pumps" and LOVE it. Of course, red is my all time favorite color, and I LOVE shiny things, so the polish was the perfect combo!
