China Glaze – Autumn Nights Fall 2013 Collection, part 1

CG Autumn Nights pt. 1 opener

 

The Fall offerings from China Glaze, have got to be my favourites – and this year’s version does NOT disappoint. The 12-piece collection is broken up into two themes: the 6 shades of the ‘Strike Up A Cosmo’ set (shown here today), and my upcoming post which will spotlight the 6 hues of ‘Gossip Over Gimlets’. With rich, jewel-toned hues and mega-what shine, there’s a whole lot of gorgeousness going on here.

Strike Up A Cosmo – a deep rose-gold foil hue with mauve undertones as well as some copper and gold glitter shards thrown in,  in an amazing formula: great coverage even by the first coat, self levelling and brush stroke free. Absolutely brilliant sparkle at the finish, plus this shade is so totally trending right now. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

Red-y & Willing – a deeply saturated ruby/garnet hue, with an almost “glowy” kind of effect, in a formula that was very easy to work with – although it does have the potential to be slightly staining (don’t skip the base coat here). Self levelling and bearing a glossy finish, I had some issues with the brush on my bottle – I’m guessing it’s an isolated incident, because the rest of the collection was fine. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

Don’t Make Me Wine – a luxuriously rich magenta hue with an inner amethyst shimmer, bearing an excellent formula that applies in a self levelling manner, leaving a high gloss behind. Strongly pigmented and with that ‘glowing centers/darker edges’ look that I love, there’s also the added bonus of it being non-staining upon removal. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

Scandalous Shenanigans – a true sapphire hue with a matching pearly shimmer, bearing a violet undertone. This highly pigmented formula can almost be a 1-coater, and application couldn’t be easier: brush stroke-free, self levelling and with a nice shine at the finish. There’s definitely a stain potential with this shade, so do not skip your base. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

Tongue & Chic – an intense viridian hue with a matching shimmer, and is a true 1-coater (it’s THAT colour saturated). Self levelling and über glossy at the finish, there is a slight stain potential with this shade as well – make sure to apply your base first. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

Goldie But Goodie – an antiqued gold/pale bronze complex hue, that’s jam-packed with golden/bronze micro shimmer, as well as larger copper and gold glitter flecks – not quite a foil, nor a glittery shimmer, but a hybrid of the two finishes & very unique. An amazing formula with a super easy application, the self-levelling formula leaves no visible brush strokes, and finishes in a ridiculously brilliant shine. Some migration of the fine shimmer upon removal. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

The 2 foils of this group are in a word: outstanding! The other 4 shades all seem to have this hypnotic “glow” and are so incredibly colour saturated, but other than ‘Don’t Make Me Wine’, need a bit more preparation to avoid any staining issues. That being said, if jewel-tones are your weakness, you should definitely check these beauties out.

CG Hologlam pt. 2 opener

 

While the first half of the China Glaze Hologlam Collection (reviewed here) didn’t exactly strike gold with me (more to do with the colours offered, than any other reason), this bunch has my name all over it. The oceanically-inspired range of tones of the six shades shown here today, all work quite cohesively – whether worn individually or mixed & matched, and even their “holographic-ness” appears so much more vibrant and brilliant. As with the first grouping, these shades all have certain qualities in common:

  • medium thick formula that bears an odd elasticity to it — almost a spring-back effect
  • very fast drying
  • non-staining with an easy removal

Application tips:

  • ridge-filling base coat applied first will ensure a smoother surface to work on
  • load enough polish on your brush to deposit a full coat per nail
  • the “3-stroke” method works the best (ie: 1 swipe down the middle, then 1 swipe down either side of that)
  • do not fuss with the first coat too much, in order to avoid potential bald spots
  • wait a minimum of 2 minutes between coats, to eliminate any lumps from forming
  • top coat optional; while I always apply a top coat for extra protection, I found that it dulled the effect on these lacquers

Don’t Be A Luna-Tic – an icy pale blue shade with undertones of seafoam in the base and rather cool leaning, with a mild but still visible linear prismatic effect. Coats applied: 3 thin, no top coat.

Strap On Your Moonboots – a rich navy shade with strong purple undertones in the base in a formula that is stellar, both in flow and colour saturation. Much stronger and visible linear prismatic effect overall. Coats applied: 2, no top coat.

Last word: After a quick & cursory glance at this half of China Glaze’s Hologlam Collection, I wondered why there were so many similar hues; then I began swatching them and realized that I could not have been more wrong. Each shade offers something different and while inherently more of a “cool-themed” group, these are all colours that will work on a broad spectrum of skin tones and able to transcend all seasons as well. Care still needs to be taken with application, but the end result more than makes up for that. The best part? How beautifully each lacquer comes flaring to vivid life as soon as direct light hits it – you may want to have your sunglasses handy!

CG Hologlam pt. 1 opener

 

This Spring, China Glaze released a collection of 12 holographic-type lacquers, the ‘Hologlam Collection’, in a broad range of colours and with varying intensities in their prismatic finishes, but even if you’re a “colour purist” like I tend to be, there’s no denying the almost magnetic pull of these polishes. I’ve broken the collection down into 2 parts – the warmer group, as shown here today, with the cooler group to follow. While some of these shades tended to be more vibrant than others, they all shared the following characteristics:

  • medium thick formula that bears an odd elasticity to it — almost a spring-back effect
  • very fast drying
  • non-staining with an easy removal

Application tips:

  • ridge-filling base coat applied first will ensure a smoother surface to work on
  • load enough polish on your brush to deposit a full coat per nail
  • the “3-stroke” method works the best (ie: 1 swipe down the middle, then 1 swipe down either side of that)
  • do not fuss with the first coat too much, in order to avoid potential bald spots
  • wait a minimum of 2 minutes between coats, to eliminate any lumps from forming
  • top coat optional; while I always apply a top coat for extra protection, I found that it dulled the effect on these lacquers

Last word: If you’re looking to add a little pizzazz to your nails, but don’t want the headaches (ie: removal issues) associated with glitter lacquer, then the prismatic finish of China Glaze’s Hologlam Collection may be just what you need. With the exception of ‘When Stars Collide’, I found the holographic effect to be more on the subdued side with this group, definitely making these shades more work-place friendly than party/clubbing — a definite plus in that respect. Once you’ve “nailed” down the proper application method, you’ll find the results pay off – and a great way to ease yourself into the world of polish holographics.

China Glaze – Avant Gardent Collection Spring 2013 ‘Blooming Brights’

CG Avant Garden part 2 opener

 

Trying to reinvent the wheel can often fall into redundancy, which is why I really appreciate China Glaze’s honest charm; case in point is their latest offering that makes no excuses for what it is – a spring nail varnish collection. If part 1 (reviewed here) represented the gentler opening notes of the season, then part 2 -the ‘Blooming Brights’, is Spring at its vibrant & colourful best.

All swatches are with base and top coats.

Mimosa’s Before Mani’s – a warm leaning melon pink hue, filled with ultra fine pearlized gold & silver shimmer. Excellent flow, self-levelling and quite glossy at the finish, there’s a vibrant & fresh feel to this shade, although the shimmer itself is not highly visible once applied – still enough to offer a unique overall gleam. Coats applied: 2

Budding Romance – a semi-sheer deep chartreuse colour with mustard undertones, in a jelly-esque formula. With an exceptionally glossy finish at the end, there’s an organic vibe to this original green shade and I personally love its glass-like translucency at 2 coats. Very military chic! Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Sunday Funday – an intense azure blue crème hue in a highly colour-saturated formula. Self-levelling and with a high gloss finish, this vivid hue has the added bonus of being completely non-staining upon removal. Coats applied: 2

Fancy Pants – a quasi-sheer indigo hue, filled with ultra fine glass fleck-like pink shimmer with some sparse larger flecks thrown in, all in a self-levelling jelly-like formula. This totally spectacular shade applies like a dream, and leaves a superior gloss at the finish. Bonus: non staining upon removal. Coats applied: 2

Snap my Dragon – an über intense rich fuchsia hue with magenta ultra fine shimmer, in a hybrid crème-jelly medium flowing formula. Bearing an excellent pigmentation, application and glossy finish, the shimmer here translates quite clearly upon the nail, even giving off a blueish tone when seen under flash. Coats applied: 2

Final thoughts: When the promotional photos began circulating about this collection, the shade I was most drawn to was ‘Fancy Pants’, and I can honestly say that the reality of it exceeds anything I could have expected. ‘Budding Romance’ took me by surprise with its original take on green (a perfect leaf/stem colour!) and the stunning shimmer in ‘Snap my Dragon’ was a lovely bonus as well. ‘Mimosa’s Before Mani’s’ (that name….) as well as ‘Sunday Funday’, will be shades I’ll be sporting on my tanned toes this year – when & if the warmer weather finally gets here *grumble*.

China Glaze – Avant Garden Collection Spring 2013 ‘Pastel Petals’

CG Avant Garden part 1 opener

 

The China Glaze Avant Garden Spring 2013 Collection are 12 shades inspired by flowers in bloom – literally epitomizing what Spring is all about and in my opinion, it’s refreshing to see a collection that actually reflects a season, as opposed to trying to reinvent it. Formula-wise, there is something to be said about a brand with such a relatively low price point that consistently delivers such a quality product – you almost have no excuse to not buy them all!

Part 1 focuses on the 6 softer shades of this collection, the ‘Pastel Petals’. All swatches are with base and top coats.

Dandy Lyin’ Around – a sheer leaning soft white hue filled with ultra fine crystalline shimmer which also bears some slight prismatic flashes. Self levelling, non-streaking and a glossy shine at the finish, there was some shimmer spread upon removal, although easily cleaned up. I absolutely love the pureness of this shade! Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Pink-ie Promise – a carnation/bubblegum/barbie pink hue with blue-lilac undertones and an almost imperceptible pink shimmer that while it doesn’t translate too visibly on the nail, serves to add a nice overall depth. Excellent pigmentation for such a pale shade, and a nice shiny look at the finish. Coats applied: 2

Keep Calm, Paint On – a pale seafoam/celadon green hue with an inner ultra-fine pearlescent shimmer. Paradoxically, while sheer-leaning, this shade still manages to build to a good opacity by the 2nd coat. An absolutely stunning take on mint and one that won’t give you the dreaded “lobster hands”. Coats applied: 2

Life is Rosy – a rich and true rose crème hue that is ultra colour saturated and can almost pass as a 1-coater. Its dusky quality makes it suitable for all skin tones across the spectrum – a powerfully feminine shade, and super glossy at the finish. Coats applied: 2

Fade into Hue – (NOTE: ignore the yellow cast to my skin in these swatches – still not sure what happened there, but the colour at least shows true!) a delicate periwinkle/cornflower blue crème with violet-blue undertones and an easy smooth application. There’s a slight jelly-like consistency to this formula, backed up by the ultra glossy shine at the finish. Coats applied: 2

Final thoughts: Even though my personal preferences run to deeper, vampier shades, something about these 6 colours makes me feel happy and ultra-feminine. Dandy Lyin’ Around stole my heart with its pristine look, while Keep Calm, Paint On is a mint that will look simply spectacular against a light tan (as well as untanned skin too). Even though there’s only so many versions of pastels that can be produced and while not all hues shown are original in terms of colour, it’s their formula and application that makes them stand out.

Stay tuned for Part 2, the ‘Blooming Brights’.

China Glaze Holiday 2012 – part 2 (the holos & glitters)

CG Holiday Collection part 2 (opener)

 

While the first half of China Glaze’s Holiday 2012 Collection consisted mainly of hues that would transcend all seasons (see part 1 here), the six shown here glimmer with all the festive spirit the season has to offer. The varying finishes make for endless possibilities – the 3 prismatic shades are excellent on their own, with their visible holographic gleam, while the glitters add that extra sparkle to whatever they’re layered over. And let’s face it; what better way to celebrate than with a bit of brilliance?

All swatches are with Seche Clear Base Coat and Seche Vite Top Coat.


CG Holiday 2012 Collection

China Glaze Holiday 2012 Collection – the holos & glitters

 

 

Glistening Snow – a clear base completely filled with prismatic ultra-fine glitter with silvery/grey undertones, in a very easy flowing formula. The natural finish is semi-matte and bears a delicate sand-like texture, rather opaque at 2 coats, surprising for a shade this pale. Quick drying, this hue brims with light with the addition of top coat. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Angel Wings – the gold version of ‘Glistening Snow’ in an identical formula, but with a touch more shine at the finish, this prismatic shade also bears a slight oxidized green cast, lending it a unique depth. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Glitter All The Way – (layered over ‘Blue Bells Ring’) a clear base with purple, green, gold, and red micro-glitter that looks much denser in the bottle than applied. Definitely at its best when layered over a complimentary base shade, as worn alone you’ll need multiple coats to reach the same opacity. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Champagne Kisses – a clear base filled with pale golden and rose-gold micro glitter, there’s not only an excellent flow to this formula but the finish is also glossier than the previous two. A nude with a kick and looking every inch like bubbles in a glass of champagne, there’s a delicately airy feel to this hue – a perfect layering shade, yet still able to be worn on its own. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Winter Holly – a clear base loaded with pine green, emerald, gold, and some scattered pink finely ground glitter. More suited for layering to avoid multiple coats, this shade bears a similar finish to ‘Glistening Snow’ and while I personally love its natural textured effect, top coat really brings this hue to life. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

Pizzazz – is the show-stopper of this grouping; a clear base overflowing with silver, green, sky blue, red, purple, magenta, and some scattered gold multi-sized glitter, this shade is almost blinding in its brilliance. Decent opacity is easily built up by the second coat, although I suggest layering it over a silver base for ease & added depth. Coats applied: 3 (thin)

In the last swatch photo, I added 2 layers of a matte top coat – out of simple curiosity really, and fell in love! It looks softly filtered and diffused, as though seen slightly out of focus and bearing the same translucency of sea-glass. This look also reminded me of the stylized look of Impressionist-period art – my absolute favourite! Note that the photo is completely un-retouched.

Final thoughts: I never thought I’d hear myself saying that my favourite shade of any group would be a glitter, but something about ‘Pizzazz’, draws me in. With the matte coat added, I almost melted and didn’t want to ever remove it (which was a chore, but oh-so-worth-it). I was also surprised by how much I liked ‘Champagne Kisses’ – a shade pretty much out of my colour comfort zone. If you’re like me and not yet ready to let go of that holiday feeling, then China Glaze’s Holiday 2012 Collection is well worth looking into … before it disappears with the cold …
