Today is my last day at my job!! I'm so excited, yet I haven't started to pack at all and I move on Sunday... Well that's what Saturday is for right? Since I have been tying up loose ends and spending lots of time with family and friends I haven't been able to get as much nail art done lately as I would have liked, I'll have some more for you next week I promise :)
I have an accent mani to show you all today. Sally's Beauty Supply has had a Buy 2 get 1 Free sale on lately. I wasn't intending on buying anything, but I needed some thinner and once I walked in I couldn't resist getting 3 lovely new bottles. These are 2 of them that I picked up, China Glaze Reggae to Riches and China Glaze Full Spectrum from the Prismatics collection.
Reggae to Riches is a beautiful red to magenta to violet jelly that is seriously packed with blue micro shimmer duochrome beautifullness. There is no other way to describe this polish other than it glows. It is like some deep blue fire from within is pushing through the bottle and out onto your nails. It is like the blue part of a flame that is right in the centre, the hottest part of the fire. The blue shift is all throughout the bottle and boy does that transfer onto your nails.
So gorgeous. It reminds me of what an alienesque berry could look like. It is slightly translucent, super squishy, and incredibly juicy polish that just looks delicious. Can you tell I'm falling head over heels for this polish?
And check out what it looks like without the blue shimmer. Depending on what light or how you move your fingers the polish is constantly changing. The coolest thing was when I was typing and my nails kept moving, the colour kept shifting and I had a hard time concentrating because I was just drawn to look at my nails.
Now if you know me I have a hard time just leaving a polish alone so I grabbed Full Spectrum. The description from China Glaze is, Baby pink bursts into holographic magenta to party with silver, gold, blue, pink and green particles. This is exactly spot on. When I was in the sun my nails were literally holoriffic. It stunned me just how gorgeous they were! Unfortunately by the time I got home the sun had gone away so I wasn't able to snap a picture of it in the sun. Maybe because I layered it over Reggae to Riches, this polish seemed more of a purple shade that shifted to lavender. It looks pretty lavender in my above picture.
And above I think it looks more pink. I wasn't impressed with the original swatches I saw of the Prismatics Collection, but in person WOW. I think every blogger has said this, but they are seriously amazing in person.
The formula on both of these were perfection. Reggae to Riches is thick, yet fluid and simply flows off the brush onto your nail. I had zero clean up with it. Reggae to Riches really is the perfect lady. It is part of the China Glaze Core collection and should be available wherever China Glaze polishes are sold. Full Spectrum was also beautiful to apply. Simply went on and the glitters stayed in place. I used 2 coats for both of these, so on my accent nails there are 2 coats of Reggae to Riches and then 2 coats of Full Spectrum. There was still a little bit of VNL with Reggae to Riches, but the duochrome covered it for the most part.
I love this combination so much. They colours complement each other so well and Reggae to Riches is jumping pretty high up on my list of favourite polishes. Jelly duochrome?! I can't ask for more than that.
What do you think of this? Are you in love with it as much as I am? Any fun plans for this weekend?
