China Glaze: Swanky Silk

Hello :)

I hope you like the changes around here - my little self made blog was long overdue for a facelift and finally I have a blog layout I love thanks to the very talented Sharnee!  The colour scheme is completely opposite to what I had before but it reflects my taste a lot more closely and most importantly it's renewed my love for posting. So let that be the segue to this first post in my 'new' blog...

Swanky Silk is the sole shade I have from China Glaze's stunning duochrome New Bohemian collection released last year. It's a shade I find myself drawn to:  rose gold with the slightest green duochrome.  I did find the formula a tad streaky but I'll forgive it because I adored the colour. As it always is with duochromes the effect is more subtle on the nail than in the bottle - Still a very pretty rose gold though and a very versatile shade.

That's it for now!

    1. Oooh if you love duochrome then you have to check out the collection. I know that Scrangie did an excellent swatch post of the entire collection - lemming-worthy for sure!

  6. Love the fresh face of the blog, suits you to a tee! Don't think this is a colour I would wear as I think it would wash me out, but I do see why you like it :)

  7. Yay! It feels like springtime here with the changes. :D

    I almost picked up this bottle months back but decided I wasn't in love with the shade. It's a cool colour though!
