China Glaze "I'm A Go Glitter"
Hi everyone and Happy 2015! It seems like just yesterday we were starting 2014! To start out 2015 I decided to pull out a full blown glitter nail polish! I wanted a really bright and fun glitter to celebrate the new year so I picked out China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter."
"I'm A Go Glitter" is a super chunky, multi-sized glitter polish in a clear base. It features lots of small magenta glitter, and larger glitter pieces in lime green and sky blue. Formula wise "I'm A Go Glitter" was a bit difficult to work with because the glitter so desperately wanted to stick to the brush and not to my nail. However with a little patience it got easier to do. As for chipping, it is a glitter so you never wear it alone which makes it impossible to tell if the glitter caused the chipping or if it was the creme base that caused the chipping.
I decided to test out China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter" over a few different base colored polishes and here's how they turned out:
First I tested China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter" over a white nail polish. I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in "White On." As always (well almost always) white makes an excellent base for a glitter polish and China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter" looked amazing on the white nail polish!
The second creme polish I tested out with "I'm A Go Glitter" is China Glaze's "Grass Is Lime Greener" which is a super bright lime green! I picked out this bright lime green nail polish to look nice with the green glitter in China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter." Unfortunately they glitter and the lime green polish matched a little too much and I think it took away from the combination! (Also apologies for the not so great photo but I couldn't get the camera to focus!)
The third and final polish I tested out with "I'm A Go Glitter" is Nails INC's "Chelsea Psychic Garden" which is a gorgeous light aquamarine colored polish! I picked this color out to coordinate with the light blue glitter in China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter", but as it turned out the glitter and the polish weren't an exact match. However it works better because it makes the blue glitter more visible!
Overall I really like China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter" because it has all of my favorite colors in glitter form! My only complaint was that it was difficult to get an even layer of glitter on my nails. I liked all the combinations I tried but China Glaze's "I'm A Go Glitter" over Nails INC's "Chelsea Psychic Garden" was my favorite look because it says Summertime fun! (Too bad it's still only January because come Summer I will definitely be wearing these polishes again!)
Thanks for reading my blog and Happy 2015! :)
