I am so very glad that I finally got done swatching the third and final part of the China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection. At this point, my nails kind of hurt yet I still have a bagillion polishes to get through today. Hey, I’m not complaining because I have a lot of pretty polishes to swatch and a few are giving me some serious polish sweats. In case you don’t know what I mean by polish sweats, it’s when you see a polish so pretty that you get the sweats just thinking of how pretty it will look. Maybe it’s just me…? Anyway, as I had predicted, I do like the shimmer polishes from this collection. In fact, I actually love 4 of the 6 which was definitely a surprise. Let me show you the swatches.
The formula on all these polishes was very similar so I didn’t feel the need to discuss each one individually. I applied two coats of each polish and that’s really all they needed for full opacity. The formula was not too thick and not too thin and it was extremely easy to control. I did find that it was very easy to create bald spots when I didn’t wait enough time in between coats. The worst offenders in the bald spot and streakiness departments were Kiss My Glass and Public Relations. In fact, those are the only two polishes that I didn’t like from this half of the collection. The remaining four are just beautiful and if I had to pick just one, I would pick…Tongue & Chic just because I have a current obsession with teal. I picked up this whole collection during last week’s major binge shopping escapade with my friend Lesley. If you had seen what ensued when we were informed that this collection was available, you might have laughed. We literally grabbed everything we could get our hands on. I don’t even want to think about what kind of look I had in my eyes but it was probably something like this:
Whenever I go polish shopping, I kind of go into a trance and literally grab EVERYTHING in sight and think about consequences later–and yes, that always backfires but the high I get is totally worth it. Yes, I am still talking about nail polish.
So there you have it. What do you think of the China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection as a whole? Are you excited about these colors and finishes or do you find them very been there done that? As you know, the chromes were horrible in my opinion, but the cremes and most of the shimmers were total winners in my book. I guess 6 out of 12 isn’t too bad, but I wish this collection had more cremes…ahhh my lovely cremes. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for stopping by, and I will talk to you soon!
