China Glaze swatches

Here are the swatches from my last China Glaze haul.

Pure Elegance: 3 coats. This color lasted 5 days with zero chips and almost no shrinking. Basically it looked at 5 days exactly how it looked when I first put it on.

For Audrey: 2 coats. Gorgeous cream color! I didn't think I'd like it so much but I love it. Unfortunately it started chipping the next day, I think because its so thick. Next time I'll add some thinner.

Blue Sparrow: 3 coats. Dark blue jelly with wanna be glitter. It dries matte so you need to wear a top coat with it. In this photo I did not because I was putting somethng else over it after taking pics. That said I LOVE this color. Normally I'm not into dark blues but this is great. Also I think its one of those colors that will leave your nails blue, and I know the glitter is going to be a wretch to take off.

I wanted to snaz For Audrey & Blue Sparrow up so I added some Pure Ice shimmer top coats over them. The first one is Oh Baby, not heartbreaker. I labled it wrong. The second photo is correctly labled though.

In the pic Pure Elegance looks baby pink, but in reality it's more like a hot light pink with gold iridescence.
