One day closer to the weekend! I am looking forward to this weekend. I really enjoy weekends in general but I also get to see my brother this Friday so it makes it extra exciting. I wish it was his whole family but I will take what I can get 🙂
When I saw this post from LA NPA MOUTON I fell in love. I know most of my love spell was the A England polish (which is a brand I am so in love with) but I also love the colours and design. I did my best to do a recreation with polishes that I do have. Let me show you.
I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – Swing baby and when that was completely dry, I used normal tape to tape off the angles and slightly above it I used some striping tape. I then painted one coat of China Glaze – Foie gras. Topcoated and I’m done. This was really quick and easy but I really liked it. I love the colour combination too. It doesn’t look anywhere near as gorgeous as the original of course.
What do you think? Do you like the colours together? I realise I haven’t shown you these polishes so I have some swatches for you of those as well.
China Glaze – Swing baby
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It is a champagne coloured foil but on closer inspection you will notice all the different colours. Gold, silver, champagne and a few darker / bronze particles as well. This reminds me so much of cinnamon for some reason. Or more specifically, the cinnamon sugar you put on pancakes. It is so gorgeous and really sparkly. Application was great with a great formula. This is from the Vintage Vixen collection.
China Glaze – Foie gras
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It is a beautiful brown creme but there is just a little something extra about this polish that just makes it more than an ordinary brown creme. It does dry a bit darker than it is in the bottle but it isn’t super dark at all. I will admit it was the name that originally drew my attention but the colour is so great too. Who would’ve thought. Also a great formula here so application was lovely. This is from the Hungar Games (Capitol Colors) collection.
I’d love to know what you think of these.
Thanks for reading,
Stunning! Swing Me Baby is gorgeous and goes so well with Foie Gras!
Definetly as good as the inspiration too.

Aww thanks Jane. Swing baby has been unused for months now and when I used it I couldn’t understand why I left it so long. It’s gorgeous. And I also really liked it with Foie gras. xx
These two work very well together, I love the design and how precise you made it 🙂

Thank you so much Yana. Precise wasn’t a word I ever thought would be used for me but thank you so much! 😀
AYTO POTATO! MOOI!
Yay!!! Thanks so much V. High praise from you! xxx
I like both versions of this mani! I’m not one for brown polish, but I love the way you’ve paired these and it looks amazing!

Thanks so much! I do think the brown looks lovely WITH something. And the gold was perfect.
So crisp! And Swing Baby is amazing.
