China Glaze Up & Away Collection: Something Sweet Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Something Sweet Nail Lacquer is a soft, baby girl pink with just a smidgen of lilac creme polish. It’s just pink enough to have color, but it’s still fairly pale and pastel, thus spring-appropriate.  It’s pinker in soft light/shade, but the lilac is more apparent in brighter light.  I did find this one to be a little harder to apply (the paler shades I had more trouble, overall, as compared to the deeper shades). I tried two different applications, and I found doing a thinner coat first (even though slightly streaky) and then layering a thicker coat on top ended up being a better route.

China Glaze Medallion Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Medallion Nail Lacquer ($3.50 to $6.00) is a cool-toned gold with multi-sized, multi-colored shimmer suspended in a clear base. It has hexagonal multi-reflective bits of glitter amongst more square-shamed, smaller-sized dark gold glitter. It’s pretty much one of the most glittery polishes I’ve ever come across–and I say that in a good way… if you like glitter! Now, if you’re not a fan of glitter polish, I think I can safely say this isn’t for you.
