China Glaze Skyscraper

Hi there lovelies! How have you been? Today started great for me and the boyfriend. Our best friends invited us over for brunch and afterwards we went to the woods to walk and play in the snow with their 2 cute boys. They are 2 and 4 and love to run around and have fun!

This afternoon I finalized some of the changes to the blog and I thought this polish would compliment the new colors!

It's China Glaze Skyscraper and I used 3 coats. The base is nicely pigmented without losing any of that pretty glitter. If you enlarge the close-up photo you'll see some of the glitter looks silver and other is tinted, that's because of the tinted jelly base.


It applied nicely, waiting a bit in between coats to prevent bald spots. It isn't gritty at all and a thin layer of topcoat was enough to give a smooth surface!

So, what do you think of the polish and the new blog design? Anything you'd like to see changed?

  3. For months I have had an internal (not intestinal mind you) battle ... if I have 'Dorothy Who' do I need 'Skyscraper'???  I think you answered this question with this post ... HECK YES.

  4. Can I just mention my love for this polish?  I remember taking pics and being so disappointed that the gorgeousness that is this polish just doesn't show in the pics!  This is definitely one of my favorite polishes from last year.  I have the other glitter from this collection....but I don't think I've actually worn it!  Will have to change that!
