I always take advantage of a short work week to wear something a little more “daring”, so last week I wore China Glaze Let’s Jam:
I picked this up back in May – this is part of the Lite-Brites collection that I was so excited for, and I was so happy to have found this – along with a few others from the collection – at Winners. This is part of the reason why I went over my budget so much in May! 😛
China Glaze describes this shade as:
Fun & flirtatious, shimmery orchid is no wallflower.
Get down on it with the schweetest shade on the scene.
Nobody puts shimmery orchid in the corner.
Have the time of your life with the schweetest shade on the scene.
Such a long description for a nail polish shade! 😆 Basically, it’s a neon-ish orchid with blue shimmer.
The formula is a tad goopy, it’s thick enough that I could actually get away with just one coat:
I applied a second coat just to even everything out – the finish is a bit dull / rubbery, typical of neons.
This colour is a bit of a chameleon, it shifts from being a warm toned purple:
…to very cool toned, almost bordering blue in certain lights. It definitely applies cooler than how it appears in the bottle:
Here’s what it looked like under the fluorescent light in the washroom at work, which brings out the blue shimmer:
The wear on this polish is excellent – only a bit of tip wear after a week. I’ve always been a fan of China Glazes and my recent experiences with them have reconfirmed how well they wear on me:
And this week’s random object, I could barely hold:
It’s a handmade wooden container we purchased in Estonia in 2012:
And here’s a photo of the Old Town in Tallinn, Estonia:
What kinds of souvenirs do you like to pick up when you travel?
