First off, I’d just like to apologise for my lack of contribution to the blog! I’m afraid with school and everything, our little blog has been a little neglected, mostly by me. Now that it’s the weekend however, I thought it was a good chance to write a new post.
Bear with us over the coming weeks, we will try to update as much as possible!
Now to the swatch!
who; China Glaze
what; Paper Chasing – a metallic bright green
where; another Ozsale.com.au bargain!
price; $6 give or take for postage
After stocking up on a stack load of greens to even out our collection, this one stands out the most for me. Its a bright, vivid green with a subtle shimmer and shine, with a metallic finish. Personally, I’ve never really been a big fan of green polish, I just think it looks weird with my skin, but with Paper Chasing, I have to admit, looks really nice.
How bright is this green in the sun?! It’s amazing. I love it. It’s not your average run of the mill green, it really has something special with the shine and the metallic finish. The consistency, though pretty thin at first, is really easy to work with and doesn’t show up streaks and brush strokes like most metallics do. China Glaze has really struck gold with this one.
In the shade, however, this colour suddenly changes. The metallic is gone, and it becomes very shimmery, maybe even with a hint of a jelly finish? It really is an awesome colour. For once it doesn’t look gross and sickly on my olive skin, but actually stands out and for once, complements it!
As you can probably tell, I love this colour. Definitely worth a buy in my book. China Glaze have really surprised me with this one, and I am so glad that we splurged on a whole bunch of polishes just so I could get my hands on this beauty!
THE VERDICT: Paper Chasing? NAILED.
