China Glaze Designer Satin + Essence Blair


Hello everyone and happy New Year! :-) For my first post of 2012 I have this simple layering combination of China Glaze Designer Satin and the amazing glitter Blair from Essence. Both are polishes that I can't live without. Though there may be many other pinks like Designer Satin, it has a special place in my heart because it was one of my first China Glaze polishes. The deep, berry pink color is timeless and can be both sweet and girly, and funky or edgy (I like it a lot in this mummy tape mani). Blair is part of an Essence Nail Art Twin together with Chuck. The different sized hexagons in a dark silver make it a very special polish, which can be worn over about any color, great over brights but also softer, muted shades like I did in this skittle. Of course everything had to be mattified afterwards, you know how I like matte glitters ^^ Thanks for reading!

  3. This reminds me of one of my birthday parties I had as a kid, haha. I'm not one hundred percent sure why, but the moment I saw these I just thought of that party XD It brought back a great feeling.

  9. Thanks girls for sharing your thoughts! :)

    @LauraLeia: The polish from my collection that comes closest to Designer Satin is NYC Rosy Knows. China Glaze Traffic Jam looks pretty similar based on pictures, but I don't own it so I can't really tell. It's always hard to tell if something's a dupe unless you own it, especially with colors like this! But Designer Satin is widely available (online), so why not just go for that one? The formula and application are worth it ;-)
