Swatches of my 2 other China Glaze glitters

5 Dec

As I mentioned in the Meteor Shower NOTD post I had purchased two other polishes from the China Glaze glitter collection. I basically got the ones I really wanted first, maybe I’ll get some more later. With 50 new polishes coming out in the same collection it is easy to feel overwhelmed I found 🙂

1st polish pictured is Atlantis, a sea green base with blue and greeen polish. It is noce, but I would not wear it on my own. Would benefit from a blue/green base color, check out A Stroke of Colors swatch of the polish layered over ChG Adore.

2nd polish is Cosmic, black base with multicolored glitter. The glitter in this one was more sparsly than in the others I tried, and some of the silver glitter had attached it self to the side of the bottle and was not mixing with the polish. It is the one out of the three that I like the least, for no particular reason other than it didn”t kick my favorite black glitter polish ass – Sephora by OPI Never Enough Shoes!

The pictures you see here are only swatches, three coats of both but without base and top coat. Because of this the glitter was easily removed, wich is more than I can say for the removal of Meteor Shower – am bying felt before I wear any other glitter polish!

Pictures are taken indoor with fluorescent light, and am a bit blurry. Sorry about that, but the daylight is short and we are not blessed with a lot of sunshine at the moment…
