Fireworks are throughFor our anniversary, my boyfriend bought me 9 China Glaze polishes, which I haven't received or bought myself in roughly 2 years. I honestly missed buying nail polishes, but I got out of the habit of putting on nail polish because of work. But, slowly I'm getting back into my usual routine of having nail polish on and I am loving it. China Glaze is the ultimate nail polish brand for me personally. I get a lot of product, the colours are beautiful, and the application is perfect so I'm good. The nail polish brush is quite thin compared to most polishes, but honestly I prefer it that way because I don't want to risk painting the skin around my nails which I usually do with thicker brushes. A little embarrassing to admit, but we've all been there!
So on New Year's Eve I hadn't even started painting my nails yet, and I had started painting my nails black whilst doing the tips with China Glaze Electrify (from the Hunger Games collection...aka too excited for words), but then I didn't end up liking what I was doing so I changed it up to blue. And this is the result.
China Glaze - Scandalous Shenanigans
China Glaze - Make a Spectacle
So first let's talk about Scandalous Shenanigans. I have A LOT of blues in my collection, but none come even close to this colour. It is such a mesmerizing colour and I don't even know how to begin to describe it. I actually ended up asking my boyfriend how he would describe this colour, and he said luminous blue. And it's true, it is a luminous blue.. it's absolutely gorgeous. All I needed was 1 coat in order to have full opacity and that is what is swatched here. Just the one coat. Look at that coverage!
Make a Spectacle is a glitter nail polish filled with different sized glitters. I felt like I needed two coats to make it look the way I wanted it to, but it all depends on taste. You could probably do with the one coat, it just depends on what you like.
I also want to show you my Christmas Nails as I sort of forgot to take pictures of them!
