China Glaze United

i didn't feel very well today, so we decided to put off the drudgery of the grocery store until tomorrow... temporary reprieve! i watched the final segment of the Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion... yikes, those people are mean to each other! i'm thinking that there will have to be some cast changes coming up, they can't even be in a room together and be civil.

today's polish is China Glaze United, a polish from their breast cancer awareness collection, United In Purpose. it's a glitter with most pink pieces and a smattering of holographic. the pink has brown undertones which gives it a nude look in some lights. it's pretty dense, i put it over my Barielle Princess mani and it covered pretty well in one coat, and completely in two coats. i would think over bare nails it would be completely opaque in three coats! it has a rough texture and fairly dull finish, so you will definitely want to add a topcoat. i needed two coats to get it shiny and smooth!

two coats United, two coats Poshe Topcoat.




i was just going to put this on my four swatching fingers, but once i had it on it was so beautiful i went ahead and did a full mani with it! at least i'll have some gorgeous nails at the grocery store! Ria :)

  2. Very pretty! From your pictures, it looks like a pink version of the holo-y glitters from the Safari collection!
