China Glaze Tinsel Town

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was furiously working away at getting all my Girly Bits polishes filled and labeled etc, and also working on creating a page with ordering information. So- take a gander up at the top of my blog and you will see...

**insert drum roll here**

Ta-Dah!!! A page dedicated to ordering info for the Girly Bits first release called Sea's the Day!!

Or access it by clicking here

Yay! I can finally say it is officially available. After much interest was generated from the previews I posted, and many emails asking when they would be available for sale, I can now say they are available and I am taking orders. All the pricing and ordering info is on the page which you can access by clicking the tab above named 'Ordering info for Girly Bits polishes'
I am very excited, and pleased at the response so far. I thank you all for your continued interest and support, and I assure you I will do my very best to fill all orders in a timely fashion. I am-at the moment- a one woman show doing this for the first time so while I don't anticipate any issues, if there are any unexpected delays I will be sure and let you know.

On to today's swatches.
This is China Glaze Tinsel Town. I picked it up a few weeks ago, along with a few other Christmas colors ( I haven't even processed the idea of Halloween yet!) It is a densely packed mix of small and medium silver-grey glitters in a blue tinted base that is for the most part clear, but still tinted blue. It applied well, and reminds me a little of granite. It's sparkly but not over the top in your face blingy. Totally appropriate for the holidays or New Years Eve, but it doesn't scream "oh look, I am a holiday polish!"

Outside, full sun

Inside, no flash. Due to the lighting and the pink walls in my salon, it looks like there are some bald spots, but that is just the reflection of the pink walls on the larger pieces of glitter. It is quite dense. I forget how many layers this is here, sorry. It is for sure not more than three.

Here I layered KleanColor Chunky Holo Fuchsia over it and it turned it a lovely purple.

Thanks for looking!!
