EDIT : Beauty blogger blunder – This was Foie Gras, NOT Mahogany Magic! Well, spotted Brittney! Apologies for any mix-up caused!
The Hunger Games – what does this mean to you? To me, it meant nothing…until I ooh-ed and aah-ed over the new China Glaze Capital Colours collection which is inspired by The Hunger Games – the most anticipated movie release of the year. Have I been living under a rock?? Anyway, who cares and let’s get on with today’s nail polish swatches of China Glaze
Mahogany Magic Foie Gras & Luxe And Lush – which was kindly sent to me by PR.
China Glaze Foie Gras
China Glaze Mahogany Magic is a taupe-brown creme which requires 2 coats for full opacity. Like all the other China Glaze nail polishes in my collection, this exudes a beautiful sheen thanks to the China Clay they contain. I think it’s a sophisticated colour, but my sister said it aged me. “Yeah, whatever!”
China Glaze Foie Gras & Luxe And Lush
It truly was a magical moment when I layered China Glaze Luxe And Lush on top of Foie Gras. This flakie top coat really knows how to attract attention with its chunky flakes which look green, gold, pink under direct sunlight. Compared to my other flakie from Australis, China Glaze Luxe And Lush dries with more texture and it feels like chunky bits of glitter. I didn’t mind it but if you do, a clear top coat will smooth out any roughness.
My love for China Glaze Nail Lacquers continues. I just wish that it was easier for us to get our hands on China Glaze in shops in Melbourne.
So…about The Hunger Games? Is it worth me reading the book? Should I watch the movie instead? And will you be getting any China Glaze Capital Colours?
