NOTD -- China Glaze 'Lorelei's Tiara' (Eye Candy Collection)


Hey everyone! Super quick NOTD for you. This is 2 coats of ChG Lorelei's Tiara over LA Colors Live (silver foil). Lorelei's Tiara is from the new Eye Candy collection of holiday glitters. I picked it up at Ulta when all ChG was B2G1. I snagged this, Love Marilyn, Marry a Millionaire, Material Girl, ULTAmate Holiday, Twinkle Lights, Flying Dragon, and 2 bottles of ChG Snowglobe (1 for myself, 1 I gave away on Twitter!).

Lorelei's Tiara is silver microglitter with some small, round blue glitter all suspended in a clear base. It's fairly dense and easy to build up on its' own.. but I was impatient and decided to layer it over a silver foil to help it out. This is definitely a polish where "dabbing" works much better than brushing it on.

I wore this out for my friend's 21st birthday and got tons of compliments on it! It's a perfectly quintessential "winter" polish. It looks so icy and frosty! I love it. Although, after a couple margaritas, I'd decided it looked like Hanukkah (Chanukah?) threw up on my nails... which is also an accurate assessment. No offense intended.

Unfortunately, the glitter makes it a complete nightmare to get off.. even with the foil method. But it's pretty, so I'll forgive it. ...This time. :)
