China Glaze Skyscraper

September 19th, 2011

Skyscraper is a dark blue jelly loaded with silver glitter, and while I wore it I could hardly keep my eyes away from my nails! What you see here is three coats (if you have short nails you can probably do just fine with two) plus a layer of China Glaze Fast Forward. I didn’t find it very gritty at all, and it got quite smooth with top coat.

Unfortunately the sun had troubles breaking through the clouds, I guess it would have looked better in full sunlight.

The next photo is taken inside with flash, the base looks a little darker there, and that’s more what it looks like inside.

And a close-up under the kitchen lamp:

      That would certainly be interesting to test, though I’m not sure the matte top coat I have (Isadora’s) is good enough. But I will definitely try it next time I wear it.

    Jag brukar inte gilla blå glitterlack i vanliga fall. Men nu blev jag helt fascinerad och kan inte riktigt slita mig från bilderna. 😀

      Det känns lite speciellt det här. Nu har inte jag så mycket glitterlack till att börja med men det är finblingigt utan att bli “för mycket”.
