China Glaze Romantique and OPI Nail Polish Swatches

Here's a short installment of my OPI and China Glaze polish swatches. I shall be coming up with some more swatches, but for now, here are my thoughts on these.

I was able to score some China Glaze Romantique polishes, and I posted pictures of the products in this haul entry. I love how rich the colors are, but frankly, I wasn't too keen on the metallic finish when used on the fingernails. These would be great pedicure colors, though, because they really stand out and the metallic colors are eye-catching.



China Glaze in Joy is a beautiful, deep blackish maroon with lots of metallic sheen. This would look amazing on the toes, with sexy strappy heels on a night out in town. Absolutely delish!





China Glaze in Magical is a pretty metallic pinkish beige. The chrome-glass finish is really attention-grabbing. This would look very clean on the toes.



Lastly, here is my Nail Of The Day, OPI in Golden Rules!. It's my favorite gold out of the many gold nail polishes I own. It has the perfect balance of gold and shimmer. The gold is not too yellow like that of Lippmann's Nefertiti (although I love this shade as well), but it's not on the bronzey side of gold like Misa's Ghetto Fabulous. The latter is amazing as a pedicure color, though. Seriously. Anyways, I love Golden Rules! on the tips because it's fancy enough for nights out, and yet not too loud for the office. I am super-thrilled with this color. The finish is outstanding as well - neither too frosty, metallic nor too creamy. Just perfect.


Compared to Lippmann Nefertiti

I will be swatching more of my nail polishes soon!

Lovely colors! These are the colors that I usually go for since they're wearable to the work. I wish we had all these colors down here
