China Glaze Vintage Vixen Collection (Part 2)

Here are the other six shades from Vintage Vixen!  Just to recap, the formula rocks here.  It may feel a little thin, but each coat packs plenty of pigment, despite the consistency.  It’s easy to apply–I didn’t have to play around with application to get beautiful, even, and smooth color.  Most of these are two-coaters, but they easily work with three, which is my preferred number.

China Glaze Poolside Collection:

Poolside is a summer collection that includes six shades of neon lacquer. As with most neons, application isn’t the easiest, but China Glaze has certainly improved the formula from the last round of neons they did. Similarly, the finish is mostly matte, but I used a glossy top coat to give it the glossy look (but if you prefer something more matte, then just opt to go without a top coat).

Review coming soon (probably tomorrow, but in case the sky falls, no promises!)… but boy, capturing the brightness and color of neons on camera is a pain in the behind.  Like I cannot even express to you how many shots it took just to get a few decent ones worth posting.

So, I thought, “You know what might be really cool?  If Temptalia readers shared their advice and expertise on how to best apply neon nail polish.”

Share your tips & tricks to get the best out of your neon lacquers!

China Glaze Christmas-themed Nails

As I mentioned this morning on Twitter, I did a Christmas-y theme on my nails with China Glaze Ruby Pumps and Emerald Sparkle. I just alternated the colors for my theme :)  I used Zoya’s Color-Lock System for base, top, and drying coats!

I’d love to know if you’ve been doing any winter or holiday-inspired nails this season! Share what you’re wearing in the comments!
