China Glaze For Audrey, Go Go Pink NOTD

A while back, I placed an order for two bottles of China Glaze with Enpointe aka Sue. One of the people I met from an online forum that is very nice and is actually normal. Most of the girls in that online forum ends up striking me as the people you would not want to leave your pets with. Untrustworthy. They'll rip you off whenever they can. Anything to get your money but I digress.


Yip yip Hoorey!

Anyway la de da, bottles came. I ordered China Glaze's For Audrey from the Something Blue Collection and Go-Go Pink which caught my eyes. I love love Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany and the colour of this is a striking resemblance of the Tiffany & Co's boxes. Never knew till recently that Tiffany & Co. trademarked the colour. Still, love love. When will it be my turn to finally own anything from it dammit.



Only two coats needed.

I have not tried China Glaze's Go-Go Pink yet but when I saw it, I was disappointed. It didn't turn out as I expected and the colour was much too similar to Etude House's PK011. Went home to hurriedly compare the two. It's slightly different but despite the colour as 'nothing too special' I'm liking it since I've always though the EH's PK011 was much too 'cold' or 'lavender-ish' for me. This should be nice.


Left to right: MAC's Seasonal Peach - Good luck trying to get an even coat but no regrets fantastic colour, China Glaze's Go-Go Pink, Etude House's PK011

And then we have The Face Shop, something I painted while waiting for the China Glaze to arrive. I got tons of compliments when I painted it on, and I too love the colour. Problem is, to get the same colour as the one you see in the bottle, I painted a freaking 5-6 coats of nail colour. Waiting for them to dry was enough to make me go bonkers.


The Face Shop's PP404

After so many coats I lost count. Worst, they still smudge 12 hours later. By now, it was enough to drive me crazy. I smudge it so bad, that I had to repaint everything the next day and then I smudged everything all over again. By now, I didn't give two flying *toot* and just left it.

I plan to add some designs on my nails later on, will post up later if any idea pops up :P
