China Glaze Grape Crush

I'm so excited to be showing this polish!  It's been on my wishlist for years and I finally got it!

Grape Crush is a deep shimmery purple with holographic micro glitter.  I'm not too sure what collection it was apart of.  I've heard conflicting information, but this is definitely a hard to find.

Application was pretty good.  No complaints here, but it definitely looks best with top coat.

This is 3 coats.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie

Scrangie is from the amazing Blogger collection by Rescue Beauty Lounge.  It's also one of my first RBL polishes (along with No More War).  I bought this a little more than 2 years ago and I'm just now wearing it.  I know, I know.  Don't stone me.  I think I was waiting for a special occasion to wear it.  I finally said forget it and put it on and I love it.

With shimmer inspired by a beetle's wing, Scrangie is a red based purple with a beautiful green/blue shimmer that really does make the polish.  The shimmer is evident in all lights.  I have to complaints about the application, but it isn't a one coater like some of the other Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes I have.

Scrangie is still available on the Rescue Beauty Lounge site as a part of Bring It Back.

This is 3 coats.

China Glaze Starboard

Starboard is a part of Anchors Away spring 2011 collection.  I don't know why I take so long to wear nail polish.  I have colors from 2009 I still haven't worn yet.  Anyways, this is a green kind of squishy creme.  This one has less blue, but has a bit of brown in it.  The application was nice, nothing to complain about.

This is 2 coats.

Color Club You Got Soul-ar

It's gloomy outside, so what better way to spice things up than with a neon.  Plus neons always look extra bright in this type of weather.  Any one else notice that?

You Got Soul-ar is part of Color Club's Starry Temptress collection for summer 2011.  It's a bright, neon orange with holo glitter.  The neon orange base is pretty opaque so the glitter only peeks through.  The application was on the thick side, but like most neons, didn't need a white base or a million coats for opacity.

This is 2 coats.
