Some Layering On Trendsetter

October 8th, 2011

Can you make China Glaze Trendsetter  look more beautiful? I wanted to find that out so I picked out a few polishes from my stash that I thought would be interesting to try on top of it.

L-R: China Glaze White Cap, Max Factor Dazzling Blue, CND Effects Amethyst Sparkle, Color Club Neon White(?), Steel Tropica Sea

The last polish is an oldie from H&M, do anyone remember those?

And here are the results. I apologize for pre cleanup pics, I just seem to mess up quickies like this so I thought I’d take the photos as soon as possible.

Color Club Neon White. I have no idea what they mean by neon in the name, it’s mostly just a sheer pearlescent shimmer. It adds a very pink/purple glow to Trendsetter. It’s not really visible in this shot, but you can see it further down in this post.

China Glaze White Cap. Depending on how thick you layer this you get a lighter base color, full with yellow/golden sparkles.

Max Factor Dazzling Blue. I love how this turned out! Sure, I did a sloppy job but if you do it properly I think it can look gorgeous.  You get more of a blue/grassy green shade that shifts a little to pink in certain angles.

CND Effects Amethyst Sparkle. This combination keeps the base color of Trendsetter, but adds a purple shimmer to it. I quite liked this one as well.

Steel Tropical Sea is an iridescent blue/lavender color, with flashes in pink. It creates quite an interesting shade on top of the olive green base. It’s too bad the brush strokes are so visible. This polish is one of my oldest, it’s probably from the late 90s.

And here are a couple of photos with all of them together:

Thumb to pinkie: Color Club Neon White, China Glaze White Cap, Max Factor Dazzling Blue, CND Effects Amethyst Sparkle, Steel Tropica Sea

Do you like any of these combinations, or do you think I’ve ruined the beauty of Trendsetter? =)

    Jag tycker ju att Trendsetter är förfärlig, så allt är ju en förbättring :p Men det blev riktigt snyggt med både White Cap och Dazzling Blue. Återigen blir det bevisat att White Cap alltid ger upphov till snygga manikyrer!

  3. Fina fina Amethyst Sparkle.. nostalgi, det är ett av de första önskelacken jag hade. Den och kombon med whitecap är vackrast tycker jag. Fast inget blir väl fult med dem på 🙂

    Kul med gamla Stil-lacket 🙂

    Jag gillar effekten av White cap och Max Factor-lacket bäst.

    Jag föredrar ju faktiskt Trendsetter as is, men jag gillar förstås White Cap ovanpå!

    Och kul att se en sådan gammal flaska från Steel! Jag minns dem, men jag kan inte påstå att jag direkt saknar flaskorna jag hade en gång i tiden.. Undrar om jag hade upplevt dem annorlunda idag med lite mer erfarenhet. 🙂
