There are a total of 12 polishes in this collection which described by China Glaze as 10 Shimmers and 2 cremes. For myself, I had loosely categorized the polishes into fine shimmers & coarse shimmers + creme.
For today's post, I will be swatching the 6 fine shimmers!
First up, China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans!
China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans is described by China Glaze as a rich-blue shimmer polish but seriously.. I see no shimmer.
Formula and finish, I think it is really similar to some of the polishes from OPI Germany collection (if you know which are those I am referring to). It's sort of a metallic chrome like finish. Very very opaque, you can easily get away with just one coat.
I love the strong & vibrant colour of this polish, but the downside for me is.. brush stoke marks! Distinct brush stoke marks. I think they are quite unavoidable for this kind of finish. If you have some techniques that can prevent brush stroke marks, please let me know.
Next, China Glaze Red-Y & Willing
China Glaze Red-Y & Willing is a deep red shimmer polish. I love the intensity of this polish. It's one of my favourite in the collection!
China Glaze Red-Y & Willing is filled with shiny red shimmers. The shimmers are very subtle, but they are there. Does look more like a metallic finish rather than shimmer as well. Very opaque!
China Glaze Kiss My Glass
China Glaze Kiss My Glass is a blue gun-metal polish. I see no shimmers.. just plenty of metallic.
Colour is really true to China Glaze's description of Blue-gunmetal with plenty of brush stroke marks. Very opaque though.. might work for stamping.
Next, China Glaze Public Relations
China Glaze Public Relations is a violet gun-metal polish. This polish is really similar to China Glaze Kiss My Glass except that there is a hint of violet in it.
Very opaque as well, you might be able to get away with 1 coat.. but brush stroke marks is a huge problem.
I admit I wasn't trying to be careful when painting, It might look better if you are careful, I'm not sure..
Next, China Glaze Don’t Make Me Wine
China Glaze Don’t Make Me Wine is a red-violet shimmer polish. The colour is really pretty though it's not really my type of colour.
Formula and finishing is similar to China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans. Very subtle shimmers with metallic chrome finish.
Last for today and my favourite of the collection, China Glaze Tongue & Chic!
China Glaze Tongue & Chic is a beautiful emerald shimmer polish! Actual colour is more green than shown in the picture.
This photo is much closer to the actual color. Isnt it gorgeous? Doesnt have that serious brush stroke issue as well. Really perfect!
