Fairy Dust vs Golden Enchantment

Posted by manicuremania on October 3, 2009

So last night I was looking for something to put over top of my Barielle Never-So-Evergreen polish because I hadn’t had time to change it in a few days (gasp!), and I couldn’t decide between China Glaze Fairy Dust and China Glaze Golden Enchantment. And here they are! Ooooooooh, pretty!!

It occurred to me that they’re so similar, it might not even make a difference which I choose. I mean, in the bottle, they’re obviously completely different, but they’re also both holo glitter in a clear base – how different can they really be on the nail?

This is one coat of each:

The glitter in Fairy Dust is somehow much more dense than the glitter in Golden Enchantment. And, really, not much different at all. So I kept on adding coats:

China Glaze – For Audrey

Posted by manicuremania on August 2, 2009

This is my very favorite color of polish…to look at in the bottle. So gorgeous. I’ve been saving it until my nails grew out a little because they were kinda uneven when I first started all this. I just don’t like it on my nails very well! Maybe it’s some sort of skintone mismatch?

Since it’s starting to look crappy now anyway, I figured I’d add a Konad.

Man, these closeup pictures of my nails are kind of horrifying. They look fine to me in person, but zoomed in it’s gross cuticles everywhere!
