NOTD: China Glaze Sugar Plums

Very pretty color, not that pretty of a manicure.  Even with 2 coats of Seche this polish had a gritty finish, not what I expected from something with such minimal glitter.  Still pretty, although the holo shows much more in the bottle than on the nail; just I tend to kind on feel my nails throughout the day - and I didn't enjoy them feeling textured rather than smooth.  You don't notice it much or really at all in pics - from the holiday collection, this is China Glaze Sugar Plums:

I don't normally tease you guys ... but I am so in love I can't resist.  Here is a tiny peek, just one nail, from my current mani:

The tutorial for this is going to be my 100th vid on YouTube - I wanted to do something gorgeous & purple & I'm very happy with the results.  I'm still trying to come up with a good name for it that conveys the full awesomeness, but I plan to get the rest of the pics & the video edited tomorrow night, so stay tuned for a full post =)  Thanks for reading.



  1. WOW that purple water marble is just out of this world beautiful! Can't wait to see the video and pictures!

  2. Congratulations! Thank you for the sneak preview! How about just naming it, "Purple Awesomeness!", lol.

  3. love the polish!!!

    I cant wait to see you marble tomorrow!!
    I love it very well!!

  4. Those purple nails are great! I look forward to the video.

  5. I had the same problem with China Glaze Sugar Plum! It was gritty, even with the top coat. It had to come off after 1 day! -Sophia

  6. Can't wait to see the purple water marble video Colette.
    Your creativity inspired me last night. I did a mani last night with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Plum's the Word and then did a swipe of Cover Girls Boundless Color in Amethyst Mist (a holographic glitter) across the tips like a french. It's subtle and elegant. Thanks!

  7. Sugar Plums is a really pretty color, I've only worn it once so far...on my toes. Do you mean this color is supposed to be holographic?

  8. Oh and I forgot to add...I'm the same way about wanting smooth nails. I inadvertently touch my nails all the time to feel how "smooth" they are and it is bothersome when the polish is gritty. :)

    Love your blog, btw!

  9. That's a gorgeous polish! And the purple marble nail, oh my! Can't wait =)

  10. I haven't worn that polish yet. Looks gorgeous on you. Some polishes don't bother me being gritty.


Thanks for commenting! I will read every comment, and try to respond to any questions =)
