NOTD China Glaze Surfin for Boys with Essie Shine of the Times

Hey lovies!! I hope you are all having a great summer! I've been having so much fun that I'm way behind in posts!! About a week ago I wore China Glaze Surfin for Boys from the Summer 2012 neon collection. This is such an awesome neon orange that's slightly darker and almost coral like. This color is so gorgeous!! My camera doesn't do this neon any justice! I'm in love with this neon collection!! Now I love it alone but I wanted to add some bling so I added one coat of Essie Shine of the Times. The result of this mani was pure summery gorgeousness!! The formula on Surfin for Boys was pretty good, not too thick, not too thin, I used three coats.

I'm so in love with these neons! I have a few more from this collection to review. Thanks for reading! Enjoy the rest of the summer!!

NOTD China Glaze Pull Me Close

Hey everyone! Here's another NOTD I wore a few days ago. I was in the mood for a magnetic polish so I chose China Glaze Pull me Close from the first magnetic collection that came out a few months ago. In the bottle, this looks like a dark steel blue but on the nail it looks more dark metallic gray. The formula is great. I always put on two coats of magnetic polish. Some people use only one. This polish lasted a while too! I had this on for like five days before it started to chip! Here is two coats:

I'm looking forward to picking up the new China Glaze Magnetix line which should be in stores really soon! The first magnetix line is currently on clearance at Sally's. Thanks for reading!

NOTD Sephora by OPI I'm Sari

Hey lovelies! It's late right now, I'm not feeling well, and I still want to catch up with my blog posts! I wore Sephora by OPI I'm Sari a few weeks ago. I'm Sari is from the Sephora by OPI India collection which was I believe one of the summer collections of this year. I'm Sari is amazing! It's a clear base jam packed with turquoise glitter and large holo glitter! My pics could not capture how gorgeous and sparkly this polish actually is! The formula is great as well, two coats and it was opaque! I love when glitter polishes go on opaque! Here is two coats:

I love this polish! Taking it off sucked though! You definitely have to use the foil method with these but it was worth it! Just looking at this makes me want to put it on again! I'm sari is sold at all sephora stores and online for $9.50. I'm not 100% sure if this is limited edition but if you like glitter polishes then I highly recommend this one! Thanks for reading!

Nails Never Fails Files: China Glaze Custom Kicks

Hey everyone! I haven't posted a Nails Never Fails Files in a while! Today I have a good one! China Glaze Custom Kicks from the Kicks Summer 2009 collection. This entire collection was amazing but this color is my absolute fave! Custom Kicks is a gorgeous dark aqua green with a hint of golden shimmer. The formula is nice and opaque in two coats. The only downside to this polish is that it stains. Staining doesn't really bother me though because my nails are always painted anyway. I picked up this color in 2009 but I believe you can still get this color from many e-tailers like Here is two coats of Custom Kicks:

This is China Glaze Nova on the accent nail.
I love this color so much!! I actually haven't worn it in a while and I love rediscovering my polishes!! Thanks for reading!!

NOTD and TOTD China Glaze Beach Cruise-r

Hi! So I'm trying to catch up with all my NOTD's from the past couple of weeks. Here I have for you China Glaze Beach Cruise-r from the 2012 summer neons collection which I love! Beach Cruise-r is a beautiful neon purple with a hint of shimmer. It's almost a magenta. The formula is great! Two coats and it's pretty much opaque but I'm crazy so I wore three coats! It has a slight matte look when dry, I added a shiny topcoat but i'm sure it's gorgeous matte too! It's always a little difficult to capture a true neon on camera, this color is much brighter and slightly darker in person. Here is three coats on my nails and two coats on my toes:


Indoors with flash

I love this color! I have posted pics of the other China Glaze neons that I have worn on my facebook page Nails Never Fails. Whats your favorite summer 2012 nail polish collection?

China Glaze Bohemian Chrome Collection!

Hello lovlies!! So sorry I haven't posted in a while. Today I have a review of the new China Glaze Bohemian Luster Chrome collection. This is the latest China glaze collection that was recently released for fall 2012. This collection
consists of six duo chromes.

Top: L to R: Unpredictable, Rare and Radiant, Swanky Silk
Bottom L to R: No Plain Jane, Want my Bawdy, Deviantly Daring

I picked up four out of the six colors in this collection. I passed on Unpredictable because it's a dupe of OPI Just Spotted the Lizard which I already have, and Sally's was sold out of Swanky silk.

From L to R: Want my Bawdy, Deviantly Daring, No Plain Jane, Unpredictable

No Plain Jane

No Plain Jane is a purple/gold duo chrome. The duo chrome is pretty strong. It's hard to photograph but you definitely notice the duo chrome in person. The formula is pretty good. I thought it would be pretty sheer but it was opaque in two coats.

Deviantly Daring

Deviantly Daring is a gorgeous teal/gold duo chrome. This one actually has the least amount of duo chrome but it is actually my favorite! The color is gorgeous and the formula is amazing! It was pretty much opaque in one coat but this is two coats, and I had no staining when I removed the polish which is a plus!

Want my Bawdy

Want my Bawdy is a dark blue/purple duo chrome. It doesn't have a strong duo chrome but it is still a really pretty color. The formula on this was pretty sheer. This is two thick coats. It's pretty much a dupe for OPI Into the dark from the Amazing Spiderman collection too!


Unpredictable is a beautiful green/teal duo chrome. The duo chrome is pretty strong on this one as well. This is my second favorite color of this collection. The formula is great too! This is two coats. It can be slightly streaky but other than that, it's gorgeous!!

So overall, I'm pretty happy with the colors I picked up from this collection. The duo chrome isn't as strong as I thought they were going to be and are difficult to photograph but they are still very pretty colors! They can be purchased right now anywhere that China Glaze is sold. Have you picked up any of these? Which is your favorite? As always, Thanks so much for reading!
