I love this nail polish! This is Fast Track by China Glaze. It has a base champagne color with gold micro glitter dispersed throughout. I think the contrast of the cool champagne with the warm gold glitter is really flattering. Also, it is neutral enough for everyday, but the glitter makes it a little fun too! This shade is not too thick or thin and is opaque with 2 coats. What makes it even better is that I got it on clearance! (Check out my video here to see the other clearance shades I got that same day).
What do you think of Fast Track?
It’s been awhile since my last post, sorry about that! I’ve had some things going on in my personal life that made me not feel like blogging, but I’m back now! I decided to ease my way into things with a Nail of the Day post. Today’s nail polish is Kalahari Kiss by China Glaze. It is limited edition and came out with one of their fall lines. At this time, it is still available in stores.
In my opinion, this is a very unique shade. At first glance it might look like just another nude, but in different lights, it looks different. It tends to lean olive greeen or mustard yellow, I can’t decide which one more. The formula of this shade was very nice, not thick or thin. Sometimes I find China Glaze polishes to be slightly thick, but this one was perfect. The color was also relatively opaque and I used 2 coats. Overall, I do like the polish, but it is not my favorite. The shade is just a little strange. I do think it would make a great base for a gold or silver glitter top coat and it also is a nice fall nude.
What do you think of this shade? Do you have a go-to nude polish for fall?
It’s almost the end of summer so I have been trying to get the last few uses out of my super bright nail polishes before fall hits. China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy is a super bright neon pink with a hint of orange. This shade screams summer! I know this color shows up pretty bright in the picture, but it is even brighter in real life. I love the color of this polish. This is the first time I have worn it on my fingernails and right after I started polishing, I realized why. This took me 3 coats to get completely opaque. Also, because this is a neon, it has a matte finish which I personally am not a fan of. The picture above is shown with a top coat. The other downside of this polish is that it chipped within 24 hours (with a good base and top coat)! In my book, that is totally unacceptable, especially since I didn’t do anything that would normally make my polish chip. I will continue to wear this on my toes, but this is probably the last time it will touch my fingertips.
Have you tried Flip Flop Fantasy? Did you have a similar experience to mine?
I love this color! China Glaze Peachy Keen is the perfect creamy peach nail polish shade. It is the only true peach nail polish I own. As with most of China Glaze’s polishes, this one is a little thick, but not overly so. It requires only 2 coats for full opacity. The only downfall is that for me, this is a little hard to apply because it is on the thicker side and initially it looks streaky. This shade is definitely in my top 3 favorite nail polishes in my collection.
Have you tried Peachy Keen? Do you know of any dupes?
