China Glaze Romantique Collection: Passion, Magical, Poetic


Passion is a antique gold, very lovely — and as you can see in the swatch, very easy to over-apply because of the looseness of the polish formula. You really have to use thin coats and then do two or three for the perfect manicure.

Magical is a taupe-y brown shade. There’s almost a little bit of mauve or pink in it, with a grayish cash. It’s a great subdued shade, something you can wear at the office, too.

Poetic is a muted copper-pink shade with similar application problems as Passion. The shade works really well as something festive but not too bright, like a red.

Since these are just swatches for color, they are far from perfect, but they should help you get the idea of what colors might interest you!
