How has your week been so far? Mine has been a little crazy and all over the place. I want to tell you all about it but seeing as the ‘story’ isn’t finish yet I will wait till I can tell you the whole story. Crazy I tell you! For now, let’s stick to the nails 😉
Back in the day when I really got into nail art and China Glaze was a coveted brand, I would read all the international blogs and drool over the beautiful China Glaze collections. One of the polishes that really stood out and seemed to be a favourite was China Glaze – Mimosa’s before mani’s. It is a beautiful polish but I recall it being talked about for being a grammar police nightmare. I got this polish maybe a year ago and I am embarrassed to say I am only now using it. Let me show you what I did,
I started with 2 coats of Morgan Taylor – Jest-er Kidding on my ring finger and 2 coats of China Glaze – Mimosa’s before mani’s on the rest of my nails. Once it was all dry I stamped on my index and middle finger. I stamped the gold thick chevron using Lina – Feeling shapely 09 and Mundo de Unas – Light gold. I then stamped the blue thinner chevron using Lina – Feeling shapely 01 and Mundo de Unas – Joy. I topcaoted everything and that was that.
Let me show you some swatches before we chat about this
China Glaze – Mimosa’s before mani’s
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is described as a coral with a shimmer but I must be honest, mine looks much more orange than the coral I have seen in other swatches. It does have a hint of coral but the swatches I have seen from others, this looks more coral. The shimmer is also barely there. Even though it is barely noticeable, it does give the polish a little something extra. The formula is fabulous and opacity is also great. It is still a very beautiful polish and I am very glad I finally used it.
What do you think? Do you have this polish? Is yours also more orange than coral? I did like pairing it with the gold and a hint of the blue. I chose to pick up the blue from the glitter. Let me know what you think about the polish and the nail art.
Thanks for reading,
