China Glaze Budding Romance and Razzle Me, Dazzle Me


  I have been so busy lately it's crazy.  I'm not even sure what day it is most of the time.  I hope you've all been well.  I'm going to try to finish up my China Glaze Avant Garden and Glitz collection reviews this week.  Posts will probably remain a bit sporadic for a while after that unfortunately.  I'm hoping though to get in a routine soon, or that work will settle down some, so I can get back on track with reviews.  If there are any polishes or collections that anyone would specifically like to see, please post a comment and I will make sure to put them on the top of my list.

   Budding Romance is a moss green jelly from the Avant Garden collection.  This is a very yellow based green.  Formula and application are good.  Because this is a jelly, you will need more coats for full coverage.  I used 3 coats over Finger Paints base coat in the photos below.  I did not use a top coat.

   Razzle Me, Dazzle Me is a mix of extremely pale pink and black glitter from the Glitz collection.  The glitters are a mix of multi-size and color hex glitters and small black bar glitters.  The formula is thicker on this polish than the previous ones from the collection and gives more dense coverage.  I'm planning to add thinner before I use it again.  The dabbing method instead of brushing directly on the nail still works better though.  The following pictures are one dabbed coat over Budding Romance.

   Budding Romance is what I would call an ugly pretty color.  I really like it, but it's not a traditionally pretty shade.  It reminds me of new plant growth, especially leaves.  My favorite part though is that it's a jelly.  I added one more thin coat over Razzle Me and I think it makes a really nice combo sandwiched like that.

   What do you all think?  Are you fans of the jelly sandwich look?  Let me know what you think.
