China Glaze Fast Track

So this is Fast Track from the Hunger Games collection from China Glaze. And that's my phone because when I decided to take pics I was in the car and didn't have the bottle with me. I wore this for a long time before I got around to taking pictures but it held up well. This is 2 coats with OPI Top Coat on top and I LOVED it. I don't know if you can tell but there is a slight VNL but when I did 3 coats on my other hand I just didn't like it as much opaque. It's just a really nice subtle nude color with the prettiest gold shimmer. I didn't have any chipping, just tip wear and obvious growth. But I don't think it will last until I actually get to see the movie this Friday. I'm just ready for a change and none of the other Hunger Games polishes are calling to me at the moment so I'm probably not going to end up wearing any themed polish to the movie. Oh well.

China Glaze Gothic Lolita

What is it with me and the crappy cuticles lately? And there's that giant crack in my pinky again. Anyways, this is Gothic Lolita from this spring's Electropop collection! It's definitely a red tone purple and slightly darker than my picture It looks kind of shimmery here but it can be hard to pick up on in person. MonkeyToes was fascinated with this color. He kept picking up my hands and staring at my nails. I'm excited to try Techno over this but that will be it's own post! :D

China Glaze Agro

Out of all of my new China Glaze polishes, this is the one I was most excited for. This is China Glaze Agro. It's a metallic olive green with a VERY slight gold shimmer. I could not properly capture the color. I need some help with pictures. I'm struggling to get pictures to really depict what the color is. It's so flat here and on my hands it has so much depth. Anyways, I'm completely in love. This was two coats, with OPI Natural Nails base coat and Seche Vite top coat. And yet again, my cuticles look like crap here. If I'm going to keep this up, I really should work on my cuticles and photography skills.

I now have a google doc listing all of my polishes. Check it out, the link is over on the right. If there's something you want to see, feel free to make a suggestion!

OPI I Have A Herring Problem

This is OPI I Have A Herring Problem. I'd describe this as a faded denim blue with very subtle silver and gold shimmer. Not my favorite color but I do like this. I used OPI Natural Nails basecoat, 3 coats of Herring and OPI top coat. It was kind of overcast so this is the best I could do. The shimmer is a little more noticeable in real life. And my pinkie looks so scraggly. It's got a big ridge in the middle that I'm trying to grow out.
