Happy Wednesday all! 👋🏻
Today I’m going to be talking about my top 5 China Glaze polishes. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that China Glaze is my favourite mainstream nail polish brand. If you don’t, I’ll be giving you insights into my polish addiction in the next few blogs.
It was hard to pick just 5 but I managed it eventually. 😂
I’m saving my absolute favourite for last, but I love them all.
First up is Shadies and Gentlemen from the 2018 Paint It Black collection for Halloween. If you don’t already know, I LOVE China Glaze matte polishes. Matte polishes from other mainstream brands never dry down fully matte, there’s always a little light reflection. And a lot of them dry to what I call a wax effect. So it’s that in between matte and glossy look. Not my cup of tea at all. China Glaze mattes are MATTE! Look!👇🏻
This is an ocean sunset in a bottle… Next up is Pearl Jammin’ from the Autumn 2016 Rebel collection. The shimmer in this is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I love it when mainstream brands push the boat out and do something different, even if it doesn’t really workout. I think China Glaze and Barry M are taking inspiration from indie brands, introducing more holographics, shimmers and glitters.
Next up is a black linear holographic from a mainstream brand… WHAT?! This is Maliboo-boo from the Paint It Black Halloween 2018 collection. This entire collection was a huge hit with me. Glitters, toppers, linear and scattered holos, shimmers and a matte!
Okay, we’re down to the final two… Can you guess what’s next? Judging from my previous picks, this probably won’t come as a surprise to you.
This has everything I love, matte and a gorgeous cobalt blue… What more could a girl want?
Here it is, my all time favourite China Glaze polish…
UP ALL NIGHT!
Look at that. Isn’t it stunning? I love almost black polishes that have really striking shimmers like this.
What do you think? Do you agree with my picks? Do you have an all time favourite China Glaze polish? Let me know!
See you next Wednesday!
