China Glaze CG In the City

This polish comes to us thanks to Candy Girl, a New Zealand based online nail polish seller, based out of Christchurch. You can get China Glaze polishes for $13.95 each. (China Glaze is hard to get in New Zealand, so this is a great sight to get them from). Visit their sight here:

CG In the City is from the 2011 fall/winter China Glaze Metro Collection. It is one of two glitters in the Metro collection.

This a dusty dark purple glitter in a clear base. The glitter in this is finer than recent glitter polishes released (such as the OPI burlesque glitters). This is three coats, with the third coat being quite thick. It was easy to apply, and luckily didn't get glitter everywhere.

This glitter doesn't sparkle rainbows like some others do, so is quite a conservative glitter in my opinion. It seems adequate for the fall season and is a nice dark colour that is quite wearable.

Glitter is always a pain to take off, so you need to use the foil method to remove. I always make sure I have a good base coat when wearing glitters, to try and help with removal.

Lots of Love

This polish was sent to me for review
