First Class Ticket

Today I did a manicure with China Glaze First Class Ticket from their Vintage Vixen fall 2010 collection. What a lovely blurple shimmer! Yes, I  went there. It's blue and purple! Oh blurpley goodness how I love thee, thy blue flecks shimmer so lovely in a sea of purple.




*sigh*

Love the formula on this one too! A smooth liquid but opaque in two coats, and very easy to apply. China Glaze is one of my favorite brands because of it, not to mention their unique colour palette.

I also went the whole nine yards and cleaned up the gap edges with acetone and a filbert brush. That's why this manicure looks so neat. It's a bit of a tedious process but it makes a huge difference I think. Maybe I'll do a tutorial on that someday…

Oh, I did a review of the whole collection a while back, check it out if you missed it.

  15. Oh PLEASE do a "nail clean-up" tutorial. I am so messy, no matter how hard I try. It's amazing. I can do liquid/gel/creme eyeliner almost perfectly and with a steady hand, but with nail polish I am hopeless.

  16. Please please do a tutorial on cleaning up the nail using the filbert brush. I've been getting better at doing my own manicures and I would love to take it to the next level.

    Do you put acrylic on your nails? Or are they that thick naturally?
