China Glaze Haul + Swatches

Hi guys!! Thanks for all the great recs you guys suggested! I'll definitely look into them.

As promised, pics of my China Glaze haul. Before that though, I'd like to take a sec and say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE CHINA GLAZE!! I heard some where that China Glaze and OPI are owned by the same company, which probably explains why China Glaze's quality is AMAZING! The colors are so vibrant and funky, and last quite a while. Right now SALLY's Beauty Supply is having a sale, Buy 2 get one free. Also, if you have the Sally's card, instead of $6, it's $3.25, isn't that a freakin' steal??!!!! The sale ends 11/30, so I suggest all of you ladies go out and grab some. I got 18 nailpolishes for $41, which is like $2.3 each. I'm happy! :D
Together now:

Blue Sparrow: What I have on my nails. It's a bright blue with aqua glitters.

Turned Up Turquoise: An emarld color with subtle green shimmer. It's neon bright

Shower Together: LOVE the name. It's a true turquoise, although a bit more on the blue side.

For Audrey: Matte seafoam green/blue. Very Tiffany.

Solar Power: A shimmer bright yellow, reminds me of MAC Pro e/s in Bright sunshine (shows you how addicted I am when I compare EVERYTHING to makeup).

Heaven: A Heavenly color, LOL! It's a sheer pearly beige. Very classic and sophisticated.

Innocent: A pale pink, perfect to fake natural nail color or french mani.

Camisole: A very interesting color. it's a shimmery pale peach with green shimmer.

In Awe of Amber: Very gorgeous fall color. It's light, but very shimmery amber glitter. Great for layering over another color.

V: A matte mango color. Very summery.

Thataway: GORGEOUS!! Reminds me of a more pigmented/brighter version of NARS Orgasm nail polish.

Naked: A great shimmery pink. Very girly.

Japanese Koi: NEON coral. very bright! I wish they can have a l/g this color....Trust me, this color will make your nails the focal point.

Ruby pumps: THE christmas colors. Very Dorothy from Wizard of OZ. Very glittery and festive.

Spontaneous: A matte creamy violet color. A lot like Viz-A-Violet pigment.

Coconut kiss: A shimmery bright purple with red undertones.

Avalanche: A very rock-n-roll color. It's a steel purple-y grey color.

VIII: GORGEOUS!! very dark, but very very pretty. It's a cream dark burdandy color. great for fall/winter.

thanks for letting me know!

Hey gorgeous! Happy belated bday! I hope all ur birthday wishes came true! Sorry I have been MIA, things have been super hectic! But I definitely like the Canon cameras, I have the Canon SD 750 which is a bit older than some of the new ones, but I love it!

Nanzy said...

hi tao..
great hauls! so colorful :D
I just watched your GoW review, I'm a GoW user too, but I'm still purging (6 months already, can you believe it?) because I was a heavy user of Benzoyl Peroxide.

Did you use any acne treatment?
