Hi everyone! Today I’m a little sad because this will be the last Textured Tuesdays post, however, something really fun is in the works with my little group of blogger friends so make sure that you stay tuned for that. I’m hoping that our endeavor will be very representative of the crazy characters that we are so I’m definitely excited to get this started. We’re still working out the details, but I think that we will have something for you next month for sure. For today’s Textured Tuesday, I have 4 of the 6 polishes from the recent China Glaze Sea Goddess Collection. If you follow my China Glaze reviews, you know that I call it like it is and have no problem lampooning sub-par collections from any brand. Lately I feel like China Glaze has really let me down with odd collections and some really troublesome formulas. Well, I’m glad to report that the Sea Goddess Collection is a winner–for the most part. Let’s take a look at my swatches below and then I’ll share my overall thoughts.
There are two polishes missing because I did not want to spend any money on them–primarily because they are disgusting. They look like lumpy toothpaste. I’m sure you’re seen them elsewhere so I won’t waste your time with more of my interesting descriptions. The 4 polishes that I did buy, were all identical formula-wise: a little thick but very manageable. The applied nicely and ended up being very opaque (with the exception of Wish On A Starfish which required 3 coats instead of 2 like all the others). They are all so sparkly and gorgeous that they made me forget about the 2 errant red headed step children polishes from this collection. If you like fine sparkly textures, these are the polishes for you. I did find that they were a little bit of a pain to remove because the glitter was EVERYWHERE, but that’s a small price to pay for such pretty polishes.
So what do YOU think about these? I’ve put these up on my blog sale (only one is still available), so feel free to check it out. I can’t want to see what China Glaze puts out for Summer so I’ll just keep my fingers crossed. I hope you’re having a great day so far, and I will talk to you soon!
