I haven’t been much of a fan of China Glaze to be perfectly honest..mainly because I was let down by For Audrey color-wise….but they are keeping up with the Joneses and bringing their A-game in 2011.
First, the most buzzed about, I would say- the China Glaze Crackle Glaze Polish collection- which is supposed to be out now or by the end of the month depending on your location I believe.
Here are some great swatches from The PolishAholic. This collection is a 6 color collection, which was lacking with the OPI Black Shatter, because it was *only* black (to start out with). I appreciate the fact that China Glaze is offering what I am noticing to be the next big thing in nail polish, but in multiple colors. CG is also a lot more accessible to people, and CHEAPER. Although I want the white and gray, the mint color is tempting because that is one of my favorite colors. But, as always….I want to see it in person before I buy it because although I read a lot of blogs, I want to make sure the color is right for me! Do any of you want/have these? I’d love to know!
The China Glaze Tronica collection has fallen short of my expectations, even before being released. I expected this collection to be a revamped OMG collection, which I was too daft to buy into at the time, and my appreciation for nail polish has grown….yeah appreciation is a good word ;). I saw swatches on Makeup Withdrawal, who did comparisons to a lot of colors that I was interested in. I was hoping that these would be the “oil slick” type of holographic- but looks like I’ll have to eventually fork up the change for a Nfu Oh Holo…..(maybe the flakies too….well let’s not get me started on FLAKIES) These are set to release in March/April. The only one I kind of want is Gamer Glam, but I am not drooling on my keyboard like I was imagining I would when I saw this collection. But, some people will love it.
The Island Escape Collection is set to launch in April 2011, I am really unenthusiastic with this collection to be blunt. They seem to be the “same old” in terms of nail polish. I want something, new, innovative, and pretty, so I am hard to impress.I’m sure a lot of diehard CG fans will enjoy, but this has me feeling empty.
