Picked Up Some China Glaze Island Escape Polishes on the Weekend!!

Warning! Picture overload ahead!!!

On the weekend, dropped by my local beauty supply place and they had a small display of China Glaze Island Escape be honest, I was still waiting for Tronica to be released so never thought in a million years the summer 2011 collex would be for sale...but it I picked up a four of them (left the two cremes as I seem to have a plethera of cremes in my collex...and I like sparkles and holo's best....)

Here's a quick swatch of the four colours I picked up:

from left to right: Cha Cha Cha, Blue Iguana, Seniorita Bonita and 108 Degrees (can you tell I like Cha Cha Cha the got no picture lovin'). Cha Cha Cha was two coats and the rest were three...Blue Iguana, Seniority Bonita and 108 Degrees are very sheer and will be good for layering...even with three coats, you can see VNL. (If you click on the image, you can see the polish glitter better.)

Here's some bottle pix so you get an idea of what is coming up:

While I'm loving Seniority Bonita the most, I decided on Blue Iguana for my mani; here's three coats.

And above pix was in the sun.

As I do most of my manis in the very wee hours of the morning, I was just too tired to stamp it, so last night, I sat down to stamp over Blue Iguana but low and behold, I couldn't find a stamp colour to really do the polish justice and still complete with all that glitter bling even though I did try green, yellow and silver (silver was cool but second last mani was silver and wanted something different), so I seen the Katy Perry collex sitting out on my table so decided to add one layer of Last Friday Night.

This was pretty cool!

And I did only my thumb on my right hand with OPI black shatter just to see what it looked like...

Thx for looking!

  6. Hi.

    I am loving your photographs! Would you mind if I uploaded them to my Face Book? With a link to you of course?

  7. Radiantbabe-Beauty: Sure, I don't mind as long I'm given credit/ackowledged/linked back to my blog, etc!

  8. How does 108 Degrees compare to Ahoy from the Spring collection? I feel like they would be similar but it might just be the lighting.
