As you can see from my lack of nail polish posts in the last few months is due to the whole category becoming more MAC-like by the day - too many releases for me to keep up! Plus I just don’t have good nails to do swatching every week (the ones shown in the picture here are these, which I love wearing but they too wreak havoc on my nail after wearing for a few weeks. Le sigh).
But there are some that recently delighted me. While I’m not much of a pastel person, two colors that really jumped out at me from CHINA GLAZE’s Avant Garden Collection were Snap My Dragon and Fancy Pants. So rich and bold and well, on the normal side of things rather than the texturized and fancy-schmacyness going on in the polish category these days. Don’t get me wrong, I can certainly appreciate nail art and all the different things you can do with it, but it’s just not for my digits. I like my polish straight up!
